20140502_Prayad-Marksaeng_Asian-Tour_615Thailand’s PRAYAD MARKSAENG reveals the most memorable achievements of his career, his favourite movie and food, and what he does to chill, in the latest in a series of Q&As with stars from the Asian Tour.


What’s the most memorable moment of your career so far?

It was probably the 2013 season, as I won three trophies by the Royal family in Thailand. I won the King’s Cup, Queen’s Cup and Thailand Open, which made me very happy.


What’s your favourite club?

It’s probably my driver or the woods, like my three or five-wood. I’m quite confident with those clubs.


How did you enjoy the inaugural EurAsia Cup?

The EurAsia Cup was a very good setting and I really enjoyed the week there, as we don’t play matchplay golf much in Asia.


What’s better for you: a hole in one or loads of birdies?

Definitely birdies. If you shoot a hole in one, you only gain two shots.


Who is your favourite female golfer?

I like to support the Thai female golfers.


What do you do to relax when you’re home?

I like to watch TV, especially golf tournaments and also movies.


What’s your favourite movie?

I liked the new Captain America 2 – The Winter Soldier.


Who’s your favourite superhero?

Superman. I still watch the Superman movies whenever I’m on Tour.


What are your favourite sports apart from golf?

I like watching football. My favourite team is Manchester United.


What’s your favourite food?

I like any dish that has chicken and also salad.


If you cook, what’s the best dish you can make?

I’m hopeless at cooking!

The Asian Tour is for Asian golfers to grow and become world-class players. Thai players are all born from the Asian Tour.
