It was held at Damai Indah Golf - PIK Course in Jakarta fromJune 6-9, where there were 150 top golfers from 18 countries. He closed with 2-over par (73, 71, 74 = 218), 5 strokes better than 2nd place. Fifa said: "The Thailand support has been unbelievable. I received a lot of messages, FB and Line, just cheering me on and wishing me the best. I really didn't expect to win and it was my first time playing in Indonesia, but I knew my short game was better than the other players and we had to change the plan for the game because of the strong wind conditions. I just felt so good. Thank you so much to my family, TJGF, St.Andrews International School and everyone."
