Jaidee optimistic in Macau
Thongchai Jaidee is optimistic about his chances of picking up another title at this weeks' Venetian Macau Open.
The Thai sensation earned his seventh European Tour title atb the Porsche European Open last month, edging the field by one stroke.
Jaidee has enjoyed a productive 2015, also earning two runner-up finishes, pushing world golf ranking up to 32.
"Glad to be back at Macau again," the 45-year-old told Reuters.
"I like the course and am happy to be back supporting the Asian Tour again. This year has been unbelievable for me, I'm at the high ranking of my life."
While in Macau, Jaidee also attended talks about a possible merger between the Asian Tour and European Tour.
Jaidee, a 13-time winner on the Asian Tour, has been one of the players to benefit greatly from the relationship, which gives Asian players more opportunity to play in the high-paying European events.
"We had a meeting yesterday, very good, long, but very good," he added.
"Still talking with the players and the Tour, we not confirmed 100 percent yet. We have to talk and then we have to work all together. We have to look forward to the future talking."
