Asian Tour legend Thongchai Jaidee has moved closer to reaching world's top-50 rankings which will help him earn a return to the prestigious Masters Tournament in April.

The Thai golfer has enjoyed a wonderful start to his 2013 campaign with three successive top-10 finishes in South Africa and the Middle East to jump to 53rd position on the latest World Golf Ranking.

Players ranked in the top-50 the week prior to the Masters will earn invitations and Thongchai is certainly eyeing a place in the elite field. His compatriot and reigning Asian Tour number one Thaworn Wiratchant is already in the year's opening Major after receiving a special invitation from Augusta National.
