Phuket golf prodigy Pariwat drives on

PHUKET: Pariwat Pinsawat, Phuket’s top-flight 14-year-old golfer, was in devastating form last weekend at Phuket Country Club.

The youngster finished top of the leader-board at the end of the two-day event to win the PCC-Mazda Championship Cup.

Not only did he lift the prestigious Amateur Cup, he also went home with a brand-new Mazda2 car after firing a hole-in-one at the course’s 14th hole.

Piariwat, who plays off a zero handicap, finished the tournament one under par to land the title ahead of a strong field of 144 players.

It was raining holes-in-one at Phuket Country Club last month, with six different players finding the bottom of the cup in just one stroke at various holes during November.
