蓝峡谷普吉岛高尔夫锦标赛周二预览。萨多姆在巡回赛重新开始前保持冷静

Phuket, Thailand, November 23: Thailand’s Sadom Kaewkanjana will look to capitalize on a brilliant purple patch, which has seen him win four times in two months when he competes in this week’s US$1million Blue Canyon Phuket Championship ‒ in what is the Asian Tour’s first event back after a 19-month hiatus because of the pandemic.

Two wins on the All Thailand Golf Tour in October and two this month ‒ including the Thailand Open ‒ have propelled the 23-year-old into the spotlight but further success is far from the rising star’s thoughts at the moment.

“I felt a lot of pressure when I won the tournaments over the past four months,” said Sadom.
“So, I don’t want to feel like that this week. I just want to make the cut first. I just focus on enjoying the game and don’t think about the result.”

Sadom is already a winner on the Asian Tour having claimed the Bangabandhu Cup Golf Open in 2019 ‒ having made it through Qualifying School that year he became the fastest graduate to win on Tour ‒ but victory this week in a tournament featuring an impressive line-up would be a huge step up.

Thailand’s Jazz Janewattananond, Scott Hend from Australia, American John Catlin, Malaysian Gavin Green, and teenage Korean star Joohyung Kim are just some of the leading players competing.

He added: “I don’t think about winning or anything like that because that puts a lot of pressure on me.”

Apart from some slight adjustments to his short game he’s not able to identify exactly why his form has peaked recently.

“I don’t really know why I have been playing so well. I am just trying to enjoy the game, each tournament, every round. I just focus on my game, shot by shot. I haven’t really changed anything, but just improved my short game,” he said.

“Last year my short game was so so but this year I had more time to practice my short game. I just changed my setup a little bit and I am more confident.”

The Blue Canyon Phuket Championship tees off on Thursday on the Canyon Course at Blue Canyon Country Club, while the Laguna Phuket Championship will be staged the following week at Laguna Golf Phuket.

Sadom won at both of those venues in October, although his win at Blue Canyon came on the Lakes Course.

When he claimed the Thailand Open earlier this month he became only the sixth player from Thailand to lift the famous trophy.

普吉岛的两场比赛都拥有$1million的奖金,随后将于1月在新加坡举行两场比赛,这将为2020-21赛季画上句号。
