Af­ter the 2016 sea­son, Jazz Janewattananond faced un­cer­tainty when he lost his Asian Tour card. But when the mo­ment pre­sented it­self, the young Thai seized the mo­ment and cruised to a stylish vic­tory at the Bashund­hara Bangladesh Open.

“I have been wait­ing for this win for so long. I started play­ing on the Asian Tour when I was an ama­teur at 14 so it’s just a huge re­lief that I man­aged to get the job done.

I lost my Tour card for the first time in my ca­reer last sea­son and I didn’t make the mark at Qual­i­fy­ing School too, so you can imag­ine how much this vic­tory means to me be­cause now I have a winner’s ex­emp­tion and a tro­phy to show for it.

A lot of things were go­ing through my head walk­ing down the 18th hole. I was just chat­ting with my caddy and we were talk­ing about how to cel­e­brate but we didn’t do any­thing as planned in the end.
