Locals on top as Thailand Open returns to Asian Tour

BANGKOK, Thailand — Local up-and-comer Rattanon Wannasrichan stormed up the leaderboard on the first day of the Thailand Open's return to the Asian Tour after an eight-year hiatus, shooting an impressive 62 alongside Finland's Janne Kaske.
The 72-par tournament, a national championship that dates back to 1965, is being held under the Asian Tour flag for the first time since it was poached from them by regional rival OneAsia in 2010.
Young prospect Rattanon, ranked 394 in the world, needed just 20 putts to finish off the course on nine-under-par at Bangkok's Thai Country Club under leaden monsoon skies.
