With a birdie on the first playoff hole, Thongchai Jaidee came away with victory at the Nordea Masters.

The Thai penciled in a 4 at the 18th hole at PGA Sweden National in Malmö, Sweden, while Victor Dubuisson and Stephen Gallacher settled for par-5s. Jaidee started the day four strokes adrift of overnight co-leaders Henrik Stenson and Eddie Pepperell (who had shared the lead after every round). Jaidee then opened birdie-birdie-birdie and picked off an eagle and two birdies on his inward nine to post 7-under 33-32=65 for 16-under 272. While Stenson (71) and Pepperell (72) faded to finish fifth and T6, respectively, Dubuisson closed with bogey-free, 5-under 32-35=67 with five birdies. Gallacher snuck in with a birdie at the last for 4-under 34-34=68. Thanks to his bogey-free, 7-under 34-31=65, Robert-Jan Derksen took solo fourth one stroke outside the playoff. This is Jaidee's sixth European Tour title. He is now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational this summer.

Thongchai Jaidee returns to TPC Sawgrass for his third start in THE PLAYERS.

While Jaidee is not a member of the PGA TOUR, he tends to show up in some of the games biggest events via his Official World Golf Ranking. He enters this week at 50th in the OWGR. While his biggest accomplishment this year on a large stage was his T6 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, he enters this week off a T5 at the CIMB Niaga Indonesia Masters. He has missed the cut in his two previous starts at THE PLAYERS.

Thongchai Jaidee will make his third start in the Masters this week at Augusta National.

The Thai is 0-for-2 at the Masters, missing the cut in his debut (2006) and withdrawing during the second round citing and elbow injury (2010). Jaidee has five top 10s across the globe since December, but only one of those was against PGA TOUR competition. With only one career major championship top 25 in 19 attempts, expecting anything more than a made cut might be asking too much.

Thongchai Jaidee twirled a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship and is the early clubhouse leader at 1-over 289.

After trading two birdies for two bogeys on the front nine at Trump National Doral, Jaidee was blemish-free, with four birdies, on the back. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that he was able to post such a solid score without recording a birdie on a par 5. In fact, he opened the day with a bogey on the par-5 first. It seems highly unlikely his score will hold up for anything better than a top 10, but with the number of balls already in the water this week, anything could happen.
Mar 9 - 4:17 PM

Thongchai Jaidee returns to the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship and will take on Webb Simpson in the first round.

Jaidee is the 12th seen in the Bobby Jones bracket. Though he lost in the first round last year, he made it all the way to the quarterfinals in 2010. While his history at Dove Mountain suggests the possibility of a surprise run, facing Simpson is a tall task.

Thongchai Jaidee enters the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions after a tie for second at the BMW Masters last week.

Perhaps a surprise to many, Jaidee ranks 49th in the Official World Golf Rankings. He's been consistently chasing titles all year, with 12 top 10s across the globe since this event a year ago. He's seen Sheshan International Golf Club twice, sharing 19th in 2009 and 29th in '11.

Thongchai Jaidee enters his second World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship as a potential bracket buster.

We’ve only seen Jaidee once before at Dove Mountain, but his 2010 performance is noteworthy. He won each of his first three matches before falling to eventual champion Ian Poulter. His first round opponent, Sergio Garcia, would be wise not to look past him in the Hogan Bracket Opener.

Thongchai Jaidee signed for a 1-over-par 37-36=73 following his opening round of the PGA Championship.

This is a fair effort from a guy that had to withdraw after one round in Akron last week due to a sprained ankle. At the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island today, Jaidee offset three birdies with four bogeys.

Thongchai Jaidee withdrew prior to his second round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational due to a sprained ankle.

Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press reported the news on Twitter. Jaidee carded a 3-over-par 37-36=73 in his opener. Consider him a question mark for next week's PGA Championship.

Thongchai Jaidee is in the field of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational after having captured the Wales Open in early June.

Since that victory, Jaidee went on to play in the British Open where he tied for 77th after closing with an 8-over-par 78. He last teed it up at Firestone Country Club in 2009 and tied for 60th.

Thongchai Jaidee held on for a one-stroke victory at the ISPS Handa Wales Open.

Jaidee slept on a one-stroke lead over Joost Luiten and Ross Fisher, then posted a 1-over-par 39-33=72 in the finale at the Twenty Ten Course and Celtic Manor Resort to secure his fifth career European Tour victory but first on European soil. (All of his previous four wins occurred in Asia -- Malaysia twice; Indonesia; South Korea.) Jaidee made it interesting today, going out in 3-over with a bogey and a double, but roared back with three consecutive birdies at holes 10-12. After a birdie at at the 15th, he bogeyed 16. Prior to a six-foot par attempt at the last, Luiten missed a birdie from just outside that range that would have drawn the Dutchman even with Jaidee, who eventually swallowed a bogey to post 6-under 278. Luiten shared runner-up honors with Thomas Bjorn, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Richard Sterne. Fisher tied for sixth after a closing 73. With the victory, the 42-year-old Jaidee is exempt into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in August.

Thongchai Jaidee shot a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 in the opening round of the Volvo China Open.

The Thai did what he could to play through an elbow strain at the Masters, but acquiesced to it after 28 holes. That he was able to bounce back within a week to co-lead in China is remarkable. Never question his toughness. "Last week was very hard for me having to withdraw," he said. "But I have had a few days' rest and this week and next week in Korea are very important for me as if I can do well I can stay in the top 50 and I can play in the Players Championship at Sawgrass next month." The top 50 in the world ranking on April 26 will qualify for THE PLAYERS (May 6-9). Jaidee is currently 48th.
