CHON BURI : World No. 6 Lee Westwood is ready to repeat his record-breaking form when he defends his title at the Thailand Golf Championship which starts today.
The Englishman romped to a stylish seven-stroke victory at Amata Spring Country Club last year after shooting an opening-round 12-under-par 60 for a new course record and missed out on a magical 59, which has never been shot on the Asian Tour.
With the Asian Tour's showpiece being his final event of 2012, Westwood is keen to end his year on a high note by capturing his third victory of the season against a strong field which includes Masters champion Bubba Watson, last year's runner-up Charl Schwartzel, Japan's Ryo Ishikawa, Ryder Cup stars Nicolas Colsaerts and Sergio Garcia, 2011 British Open champion Darren Clarke and the Asian Tour's top stars led by current No. 1 Thaworn Wiratchant.
