His first victory earned a personal audience with Thailand’s former Prime Minister, Thaksin Shinawatra, who gave him a diplomatic passport to expedite his future ease of movement between countries on The European Tour. He was also the first player to break the US$2 million barrier in career earnings on the Asian Tour and, on making his Masters Tournament debut in 2006, became the first Thai to compete in all four Majors.
