Thirty-five golfers including 11 foreigners have secured the 2019 ATGT cards. Amateur Sadom Kaewkanjana won the qualifying event at par-71 Watermill Golf Club & Resort in Nakhon Nayok on Friday.


Taking a one-shot lead after three rounds, the 20-year-old, who has been representing the country for four years, shot a final round 66 to win on 20-under.


Poom Pattaropong came in second with a stroke behind following his final 65. He was on 19-under 265 while Gunn Charoenkul, who closed with a 68, was third with four strokes down further.


The best foreigner in the field was Janne Kaske who shared fourth on 275 with Thai-Japan Kosuke Yamamoto. They each made a closing 67.


Kosuke, who turned pro a month ago, and amateur Sadom were in the team winning the historic Nomura Cup title last year.


Yoshinobu Tsukada, the former Japan tour winner, posted an even-par 71 to finish on 6-under.


Chiang Mai native Thaya Limpipolpaibul came in 18th while Ira Alido of the Philippines got the final hole birdie to earn the card having shared 34th place on 287.
