The sixth circuit also offers a total of Bt2.5 prize money and is due between August 17-19.

“I’m so delighted that we have been halfway through our competition schedule. The first five circuits have met great success,” said Thai WPGA boss Chanya.
“It’s been our pleasure to see that Thai professional ladies have an arena to compete and show their potentials. They have proved how talented they are over the past five tournaments. This brings us the inspiration to continue organizing further tournaments on behalf of the association,” Chanya added.
