Chonburi: Five golfers, led by Suvichaya Vinijchaitham, the champion in the national qualifiers, offered a captivating preview of the upcoming Honda LPGA Thailand tournament through a stunning display of contemporary Thai attire in a promotional photoshoot on Tuesday.

I expect more young people to wear Thai fabric. I would like Thai fans to cheer for me and my fellow Thai golfers competing in the tournament."

Hara added, "I am immensely delighted and impressed by the exquisite and eye-catching Thai attire. Participating in the tournament is a valuable experience. Not only do I get to compete with world-class golfers, but also inspire young people. Moreover, it provides an opportunity to learn about the beautiful culture."
