Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand soaking up Augusta aura at the Masters
Our old friend Bangkok Al may have slipped off into retirement (bidding adieu with this epic farewell blast at Rush Limbaugh), but I suspect he’s somewhere down in Thailand right now, sipping a Scotch and following the Masters action like a hawk.
Give Al credit for bringing to light golfer Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand. Heading into the second round, Jaidee was sitting at T68, 6 over. Not a stellar Augusta debut, perhaps. But the fact that he’s there at all is a great story.
As Vijay Singh told reporters Thursday, “I was talking to Thongchai Jaidee the other day. He just could not believe, he was in awe of the place. I think every player that is coming over here for the first time just can’t believe how beautiful or perfect this place is.”

He seems like a great guy who is truly genuine. I think he's just got the Augusta jitters.
