Jazz was unstoppable this week, posting scores of 64-67-69-67 to score a memorable win. “I have been waiting for this win for so long. I started playing on the Asian Tour when I was an amateur at 14. It’s just a huge relief that I managed to get the job done,” said Jazz. “It wasn’t easy. I took a step back as I lost my card for the first time in my career last season. I didn’t make the mark at Qualifying School too.

“I was actually hoping to get an invite to the Maybank Championship in Malaysia next week. But now I don’t think I need it anymore. I don’t have to worry about the rest of the season too,” concluded the Thai star.
