PATTAYA, Thailand: Prom Meesawat capped off a comfortable victory at the Singha Pattaya Open with an ace at the par-three 17th, as the big man signed for a stunning 63 to record a five-shot winning margin.
Teeing off with a two-shot advantage, Prom made a steady start before exploding into life with five straight birdies from the sixth.
A slip at the 15th was soon forgotten as he rounded off his round in style with a hole-in-one at 17 and a birdie at 18.
“I am extremely happy to win for the fourth time” said the 36-year-old Prom, who chalked up a seventh All Thailand Golf Tour title.
“I love playing here because the course suits my game. It is like the course in my hometown Hua Hin.”
It was the ace at 17 that finally put the victory to bed.
“I use a 7-iron from 184 yards at 17th. I did not expect to hole-in-one…but it made me much more relaxed playing the last hole.”
The victory, which earned him a cheque of 450,000 baht and seven world ranking points, will be a big boost for the defence of his Singha Thailand Masters in Chiang Rai next month.
Gunn Charoenkul (63) and Tanapat Pichaikool (64) finished tied for second on 15-under.
Chonlatit Chuenboonngam (65), Danthai Boonma (66), Chinnarat Phadungsil (67) and Itthipat Buranatanyarat (267) finished in joint fourth.
