Lee Wins Thailand Golf Championship

Back in Bangkok this week, Lee plays in the Thailand Golf Championship at Amata Spring Country Club.

Lee won the inaugural event in 2011 by a 7-under lead ahead of the chasing pack, and adding a course record in the process, "It's probably the best I've ever played", he said.

He played with Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Victor Dubuisson, with an 11.40 start from the 1st tee for the first round, ending the day in T5th place after carding a 2-under 70, just one stroke adrift of the lead. He played from the 10th on Friday with a 7.10 start, adding a 1-under 71 to his card, ending the day in T2nd place on 3-under par.

Three birdies and three bogeys on the card for Lee's round on Saturday  (72) and he lies in T3rd place, two strokes off the lead.

Grouped with Tommy Fleetwood and Jonathan Moore with a 10.35 start, he got home in 8 under par for the event.

Lee got off to a shaky start making bogeys at the first two holes but turned it around when he birdied 6,7,8 and 9 (67). More birdies followed at 11, 14 and 15 and Lee had to wait for nearest rival Marcus Fraser to complete his round, with the chance of a play-off.  Fraser bogeyed the 18th to go to 7-under.  The title was Lee's for the second time.

"It's just what I needed to end the year", he said. "There's nothing like finishing off a year strongly to give you a bit of momentum going into the next year".
