The Thailand Golf Championship 2013 which starts on Thursday is likely to generate a massive crowd an it is the second last international tournament of this season. As a result many big names are available on the card. Henrik-Stenson of Sweden and England‘s Justin Rose who are at present positioned 3rd and 4th around the world respectively are surely aiming to win this knock to glorify their glamorous season even more. There are many others who will try to steal the spotlight as the stage of this magnificent $1 million game is set up at the Amata-Spring-Country-Club.
Big names like Stenson and Rose have already been mentioned. Other high profile names include Spanish Sergio Garcia, Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand, Ryo Ishikawa of Japan and South African title holder Charl Schwartzel. However Stenson’s poor form last week has disappointed many and Garcia’s record in Asia is not a very charming one.
That’s why even many dark horses will be looking forward to utilizing this ultimate opportunity. Daniel Chopra is such a name. Besides, Schwartzel and Aphibarnrat look in tremendous form and certainly possess potential to triumph. Overall, the star-studded tournament which features 8 of the current top 10 players will no doubt earn big bucks for organizers
