Thailand’s Thongchai has gotten hot at the right time, rising to No. 8 in the latest Race to Dubai standings with his win at the Porsche European Open on Sunday.
Jaidee has 1.477 million points, which allowed him to jump over Brooks Koepka, Henrik Stenson, Martin Kaymer, An Byeong Hun, and Anirban Lahiri.
Despite playing in the US’ FedEx Cup the last two weeks, Rory McIlroy remains the Race to Dubai leader at just over 3 million points, with England’s Danny Willett second at 2.7 million.
There are four tournaments left before The Final Series begins on November 1. The man currently on the hot seat is Scott Hend, who currently has 429,044 points.
