Veteran Thaworn Wiratchant coaxed his ball round the course in 4-under-par 36-31=67, for a halfway score of 6-under 136 at the Maybank Championship Malaysia.
The Thai golfer has claimed three victories in Malaysia down the years so is no stranger to the test. More specifically he carded a 66 and a 67 at Royal Selangor in the 2002 Malaysian Open, on his way to a T38. On Friday he teed off from the 10th and swapped 2 birdies for 2 bogeys on the back nine, then thrust himself through the field with red numbers at 2, 3, 7 and 9. He's taken just 26 putts in both rounds so far. Fri, Feb 19, 2016 05:56:00 AM

Thaworn Wiratchant has already lifted one trophy at Black Mountain and will be seeking another in this week's True Thailand Classic.

The par 72 in Hin Hua staged last year's King's Cup and local star Wiratchant emerged victorious by two shots over India's Anirban Lahiri and Australia's Andrew Dodt. That was his 18th Asian Tour win -- a record -- and followed on from a victory in the Queen's Cup, also played in his native Thailand last year. At 48, Wiratchant may be long in the tooth but the wins keep coming. He will hope last week's missed cut in Malaysia (79-73) was due to rust as it was his first start of 2015.

Thaworn Wiratchant has earned a spot in the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship based on his stellar play on the Asian Tour.

Wiratchant earned one of two exemptions to Doral awarded based on the Asian Tour's Order of Merit. Looking at his record over the past 12 months, he's won three times and finished runner-up twice. The casual golf fan would only recognize his T16 at the CIMB Classic, but those that follow Asian golf are more than aware of the accomplishments of the 82nd ranked player in the world.

Thaworn Wiratchant is at Mission Hills’ Olazabal Course for the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Wiratchant likely isn’t well known to the casual golf observer, but his three victories and three runner-ups this year alone make him worth of coverage. His most recent win was two weeks ago at the Hero Indian Open, and he also took home the trophy at the Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters and the Queen’s Cup. In arguably the strongest field he’s competed against, he tied for 16th in last week’s CIMB Classic, and stands 82nd in the Official World Golf Ranking.
