Three-time Asian No.1 Thongchai Jaidee ready for Avantha Masters

Thongchai suffered a setback when he was knocked out by Spain's Sergio Garcia in the first round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play championship last month. But he is expected to bounce back and shoot for more glory when the Avantha Masters, which is tri-sanctioned by the Asian Tour, European Tour and the Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI), gets underway.
