Meesawat ends drought with romp in Thailand

Prom Meesawat didn’t just end his winless streak, he made it a distant memory.

Meesawat won for the first time in five years, running away with a nine-stroke victory at the Singha Pattaya Open on the ASEAN PGA Tour in Pattaya, Thailand.

“This win will give me a lot of confidence,” said Meesawat, who earned $8,000 for the victory. “Everything clicked for me this week. I holed a lot of good putts, and I was hitting the ball really solid. Twenty-under-par shows I played really well.”

Meesawat’s rout was on when he started the final round with an eagle at No. 1 and birdie at No. 2.

“I had a great start with an eagle and a birdie on the par-three, which is not an easy hole,” he said. “That helped me a lot and took off the pressure. I just played my game from there.”

Thammanoon Sriroj and Atthaphon Prathummanee finished T-2.

Meesawat’s last victory was the SK Telecom Open in 2006.

“Hopefully this will be the start of something big for me,” Meesawat said. “The last time I won the Singha Pattaya Open I went on to win on the Asian Tour. I hope this is going to be a good omen.”
