Sarit Suwannarut fired a second round 66 to take a clubhouse lead at the 10-million baht Thailand Open on Friday.


Making seven birdies against two bogeys at par-71 Riverdale Golf Club, the 23-year-old Bangkok native stayed at 10-under at the most lucrative event on All Thailand Golf Tour. The play was suspended due to rain and many golfers have not finished their round.


Chapchai Nirat,38, posed a sizzling 7-under to stay in contention for the title on 9-under. The Phitsanuloke-born golfer rolled in nine birdies and two bogeys.


Sarit, who has enjoyed his good run of form of late,  expressed his satisfaction of meeting his target.

My goal is to fire 5-under a day and I have made it today. I make just two silly mistakes today,” he said.

Overall, I am happy with my score and also my tee-shot and iron play.”


Thaya Limpipolpaibul (67) was at 7-under while former champions Panuphol Pittayarat (66) and Rattanon Wannasrichan (68) were each at 5-under and 2-under respectively.


Prom Meesawat, who is hoping to follow his father’s steps to win this prestigious event, was at 11-under with six holes to play.


Six-time ATGT winner Phachara Khongwatmai also has to resume his play on Saturday. The Hat Yai native is now staying at 10-under with four holes to play. Sadom Kaewkanjana,who was a runner-up to Phachara in Pattaya last week, stayed at 8-under with remaining 5 holes.
