CHAIRMANS
MESSAGE

Dear Members,
Welcome to the April edition the month with our Thai traditional New Year Songkran Festival. I hope you will enjoy
the long holiday!
First of all, I would like to report a remarkable event whereby the General Committee (represented by Maj. Pansuang Xumsai
Na Ayudhya and Mr. Peter Burke) were honored to participate in welcoming H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn on
the occasion of her private visit to Ban Khlong Takhian Chai Border Patrol Police School in Wang Nam Yen District, Sa Kaeo
Province on Friday, 20th February 2015. In this regard, the Club as the fund supporter for a nursery building of Ban Khlong
Takhian Chai Border Patrol Police School was granted an audience to H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.
On the sporting front, I would like to highlight as follows:

The Martial Arts Section held its Annual Party on Friday, 20th March 2015 at the Henri Dunant Hall.
Participants enjoyed Aikido, Ballroom Dance and Line Dance shows on the stage, including attractive raffle prizes.

The RBSC Oscars; Tennis Night on Saturday, 21st March 2015 at the Henri Dunant Hall was another
impressive event to mention. Members were amused by the fantastic performances which showed team spirit and
collaboration of performers and also excited by the lucky draw prizes.

The RBSC Billiards Section will organize its 1st Inter Club Snooker 6 Red Invitation Tournament, with 6 teams
participating, namely Royal Selangor Club, Singapore Cricket Club, Penang Sports Club, Crown Property Club, the RBSC
and the RBSC Polo Club on Saturday, 4th April 2015 at RBSC Billiards Room.
The Entertainment Committee held two events, i.e. The Chill Night by The Whats Abb Band & Patchara Dila on
Wednesday, 25th February 2015 at the Polo Club Air Bar, and the Special RBSC Club Night by Analog Band on Saturday,
14th March 2015 at the RBSC Air Bar.
On a final note, I would like to encourage you to support the blood donation campaign which will take place on Tuesday, 28th April
2015 at the Henri Dunant Hall to make merit in celebration of H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorns 60th Birthday Anniversary.

PERSPECTIVE

GMs Perspective
Recently the Club has embarked on a number of new initiatives for staff training in a variety of differing fields and
subjects, many of these courses are in-house training sessions and some are reliant on outsourcing specialist instructors to
conduct courses. The priority in many aspects of our training always features health and safety bringing about the obvious
benefits for participating individuals in developing their knowledge and skills, but also the sense of pride and team
building these types of courses can instill. I am always delighted to award their certificates of competence and witness first
hand their pride and awakened motivation.
We are tidying up an area of the Verandah outside of the Dining Room by relocating the bakery production equipment
into the Henri Dunant Hall kitchens which frees up this space to accommodate the fast food preparation and service from
the Verandah. There are many benefits to relocating this expanding outside kitchen into a purpose built controlled kitchen
environment, as well as providing additional dining seating with a more presentable ambience befitting our Club atmosphere.
The Club will be shortly carrying out a review of the RBSC souvenirs with a view to refresh and expand our current range.
We invite and welcome any ideas or suggestions from Members to include in our review.
Management would like again to sincerely thank those Members that contribute to the Clubs suggestion boxes, all
remarks are acknowledged in our centralised book with appropriate action and follow-ups recorded with a view to
continually improving our service, facilities, quality and performance.

DISCOVERING
THE BILLIARDS SECTION

The Billiards Room, and by extension the Billiards Section,


is unknown quantity to many Members of RBSC. While the
sport often times gets associated with some seedy stereotypes,
those are misnomers that are simply untrue. Popularity for
both billiards and snooker is at an all-time in Europe and
China with players like Ronnie OSullivan dazzling the
world with great skills. Popularity in Thailand, however, is

16 | APRIL 2015

dwindling. With no truly great Thai players, the countrys


interest in the sport has waned. RBSC is one of the few places
in Thailand continuing the sports grand tradition.
By Cheyenne Hollis
Photos by Jouryuu Sato

Stepping into the RBSC Billiards Room is like stepping back


in time. The magnificent wood, the chalk boards, the bowtie wearing attendants, it feels like it would be the perfect
location for a scene in the hit television show Mad Men.
Everyone craves vintage style and the RBSC Billiards Room
is truly a place that is authentically vintage.
Its a shame most people neglect this room and sport at
RBSC. The Billiards Section carries on the games proud
legacy at RBSC, but it has been hard to get new Members
to turnout. Members who pass by are not able to see what
is going inside and are therefore less likely to open the
door to see inside the world of billiards. Even if they come
in they might not stay for long.

Members cant see inside the Billiards Room and even


when they do come inside they see that it is kind of dark. For
those who dont understand the game, this can be curious,
RBSC Billiards Section chairman, Khun Virapol Kornsritipa,
said. Once you start playing and learn about the game, you
understand why it needs to be so dark. Snooker and billiards
are games that require focus and concentration.
It is these two factors that make the sport so unique. In a
world where focus and concentration have become a lost
art, playing billiards or snooker can help teach you these
important traits. Since it is a mental sport, the playing field
is level. Strength, size and speed are irrelevant. Anyone
can become good.

COMING UP

The Billiards Section hosts three major events each year to go along with Interports, friendly matches and Club-sanctioned
tournaments. The first of these is the Interclub Snooker 6 Red Invitational being held on 4th April at RBSC. Formerly known
as the Tri-Nations, the format has been tweaked to make it better for the participants.
We decided to make the tournament and invitational tournament so every club did not feel obligated to attend. Things happen
and sometimes it will be impossible for a team to make it. This makes it more flexible for everyone involved, Khun Virapol
explained. We also made it a one-day tournament. Two-day events are probably too long as the teams that dont win on the
first day dont really want to play on the second day. It is easier on everyone to do one day.

18 | APRIL 2015

Crown Property Club, Penang Sports Club, Singapore Cricket


Club, Royal Selangor Club, Polo Club and RBSC will make
up the field at the tournament this year. The spirit of the
competition is more social than competitive as the clubs have
been playing snooker against one another for decades.

Khun Viraphol Kornsritipa

The 8th Sattamitr Teams Snooker Tournament where teams


compete for the prestigious HRH Princess Maha Chakri
Siridhorn Cup takes place in May. It is one of the biggest
tournaments of its kind in Thailand featuring the best local
teams. In November, the Sangsom 6 Red Tournament takes
place. This is an event that has increased in popularity
over the past few years as snooker players view it as a
chance to really test themselves.

FRIENDLY FOLKS

One myth that can be dispelled is that billiards players at RBSC dont want new players to come out and give the sport a try.
The fact is they encourage everyone with an interest in the sport to come in and give it a shot.
We have great facilities and staff here that can help get you started playing. It is actually pretty easy, Khun Virapol
noted. We are all friendly guys and like to see new people come in and give it a try. Snooker can be hard to pick up right
away but you can start with billiards which is easier.

DROP IN
The Billiards Room at RBSC is open every day from 10am to 9pm. It features four tournament quality snooker tables
and a billiards table for use. There is also equipment available for first timers to get started and friendly staff on hand to
answer questions and teach you the rules.
Interested Members are encouraged to drop on by the Billiards Room anytime or contact the Billiards Section for additional information.

UNFORGETTABLE
RBSC TENNIS NIGHT 2015 OSCAR NIGHT
(From the RBSC Tennis Section)

The aim of the new, young generation


of the 2014-2015 Tennis Committee
has been to create a complete unity of
the Tennis Section by accentuating the
importance of family and taking a new
approach to tennis by giving players of all
caliber and ages opportunities to join in
fun and happy tennis.
The Tennis Section boasts six hard
courts, three of which are indoor, and
10 grass courts catering to players
whose ages range from 5 to 80 from
7.00-21.00 hrs every day.
The RBSC Tennis Committee decided
to adopt an Oscars Night theme to its
annual Tennis Night on 21st March. The
Henri Dunant Hall at RBSC was given a
spectacular makeover for Oscar Night,
complete with the Clubs tennis players
dressed up to the hilt as Oscar recipients
on the famous red carpet! The atmosphere
was electric and the goal was to entertain
and show the Committees appreciation of
the Clubs very young to the ageless active
tennis Members.
During the evening, there were
presentations of prizes to the winners
and runners-up of all the Grass and Hard
Court Championships whose ages ranged
from 6 to over 70 years young. The entire
Oscar evening was spiced with shows
from New York, New York; medleys from
Oscar Films and the Sound of Music.

22 | APRIL 2015

The performers were none other than our


tennis-playing Members who showed that
their dazzling prowess was indeed not
limited to only the tennis courts!
Henri Dunant Hall was magically
transformed for the occasion, complete
with a red carpet, graced by ravishing and
dashing Oscar stars in sparkling gowns and
black ties. To add more fun to the evening,
Hollywoods superheroes provided hilarious
entertainment throughout the Hall.
Chin Kampanatsanyakorn, the Chairman of
the Tennis Committee, said that everybody
was astounded by the sight of all the Gold
and Silver Oscars holding tennis rackets
lined in front of the stage. There were over
200 of them. This was an embellishment
specially designed for the evening not
found anywhere else and made all the prize
recipients proud to be holding!
However, the highlight of the evening
was the warm welcome extended to
Thailands and RBSCs legendary players
who honoured us with their presence to
receive the Lifetime Achievment Awards:
Dr Suteerapun Karalak, Khun Siri Siributr
and Dr. Choompol Vongprateep.
There were numerous other awards,
namely the Most Adorable Junior, the
Most Active Junior Player of the Year,
the Rising Star of the Year, the Most
Dedicated Parent of the Year, Coach of

the Year as well as Custodian of the Year.


There were also other awards accorded
to a variety of players, such as the Best
Topspin Player of the Year, the Best Drop
Shot Player of the Year and the Footfault
Player of the Year, to mention a few.
This unusually spectacular tennis evening
signifies another successful event
organized by the RBSC Tennis Section.
It was the result of a team effort by both
the Tennis Committee and the Ladies
Tennis Sub-Committee, along with all
the staff and coaches. And last but by
no means least, it was without doubt
the full participation of our tennis-playing
Members who played a major role in the
integration of the Clubs tennis unity.

PARTY TIME FOR JOGGING SECTION


The weather was clear and participation was great as a group of RBSC and RBSC Polo Members gathered at RBSC Jogging Track on
the afternoon of 12th February. After the group photograph was taken in front of a big colorful banner specially made for the occasion,
the participants took off on the 3,500 m. walk and jog. RBSC and RBSC Polo Members, Members of the General Committee and staff
from Sports Division all ran in the event. At the end, a handsome Jogging Towel was handed to everyone as a souvenir.
All Members were invited to the Annual Party at Henri Dunant Hall after the walk and jog. The Jogging Section and RBSC
Qi Gong & Yoga Sections were co-organizers of the party.
Everything was well prepared including food, drinks, music,
shows on the stage and door prizes. There were 133
Members who registered for the 3,500 m. walk and jog and
over 205 guests at the Annual Party. It is hoped that more

Backstreets Really Back


The Backstreet Boys return to Bangkok on 6th May as part of their worldwide
reunion tour. The In a World Like This Tour sees the boy band perform across the
globe including a stop at Impact Arena for the groups first performance in Thailand
in over a decade. Sure, the concert might just remind you of how old you have
become but it still beats One Direction.

Emack & Bolios recently opened


its third store on the second floor of
Central Plaza Ladprao. Both the young
and young-at-heart of the Bangkok
social and business community
attended the event, including Charg
daffaires of the U.S. Embassy in
Thailand, H.E. W. Patrick Murphy, his
wife, Kathleen and daughter, Gillian,
Pote Videt, Yachitr Yuvaboon, Tanong
Purananda, Napatsawan Chillanond,
Nuchanat Raveesangsoon, Shane
Kitiwatanasak, Mayrissara Chantararat
and Amata (Peary Pie) Jittasaenee.
Emack & Bolios unique brand of
delicious ice cream has taken Bangkok
by storm. The chain continues to
grow as demand from customers has
risen since first arriving on the scene.
Thailand is the first country outside of
the US to offer Emack & Bolios ice
cream, and new stores are set to open
in Bangkok this year with Emquartier,
Siam Center and The Mall Bangkapi all
set to embrace the cool goodness.

SUPERFAN
Khun Pranai Phornprapha

Saying RBSC Member Khun Pranai likes


sports would be like saying kua kling is
a little spicy. Its a bit of understatement.
The world of sports plays a big role
in his life. He watches, plays and has
become involved with sports marketing
in Thailand. He isnt some jock though.
He is a savvy entrepreneur hoping to
make a name for himself.

Game plan by Cheyenne Hollis


There is only one sport that Khun
Pranai Phornprapha doesnt really enjoy
watching. Its baseball. I went to a
baseball game when I was in America,
and I didnt really like it, he points out.
It was really slow. There isnt enough
action. It is kind of boring.
He isnt the first person to be turned off by
baseballs methodical pace. Instead, he
prefers action and athleticism. He is quick
to proclaim his admiration for basketball.
The NBA is a favorite of Khun Pranai even
if it can harm his work productivity.
I enjoy watching basketball. I dont
have a team I root for. I just like
watching the best players. They can do
some amazing things. The problem is
the NBA games start in the morning.
Sometimes I will start watching them
at work and that isnt always good for
being productive, he confesses.
NBA League Pass allows subscribers to
watch any game at any time. The time
difference between the US and Thailand
means games tip-off at 6am local time
and the late games will end around
noon. With so many great players and
the ability for anything to happen on any
given night, it is hard to not watch even
if work does get in the way.
I like watching the Golden State
Warriors. They are a great team to
watch with the Splash Brothers,
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson,
playing so fast, he says. Then you
always want to watch someone like
Russell Westbrook1. He is just a freak.
Its incredible to watch him play.
Khun Pranai is clearly a knowledgeable
basketball fan, but his passion is

36 | APRIL 2015

football. Specifically, his passion is


Arsenal FC. The London-based club
has been the apple of his eye since
childhood. Make no mistake, he is not
some glory hunter, but a fan who truly
supports the team.
When I was growing up everyone
seemed to support Manchester United

or, especially in Asia, Liverpool. Part of


the reason I chose to support Arsenal is
that I wanted to be different, Khun Pranai
explains. The main reason I follow Arsenal
is their style of play2. They play really
attractive football. I really liked watching the
team play because it was different.
As an adult, he has been able to

travel to England to see them play. He


has also taken in a few other soccer
matches during his time there including
an uncomfortable experience watching
Manchester City play Arsenal at the
Etihad Stadium. I was at that game on
business as a guest of Manchester City.
It was difficult because I couldnt cheer
for Arsenal. They won the game which

APRIL 2015 | 37

MEMBERS ONLY
was great, but I couldnt celebrate at all.
It was kind of awkward, especially when
Arsenal scored because my natural
instinct was to cheer, he recounts.
There has been an influx of Thai
influence in English football. Leicester
City and Reading are owned by Thais
and several Thai companies have
notable sponsorships with clubs such
as Singhas deal with Chelsea3. It would
be natural to think that as a young
entrepreneur Khun Pranai might one
day eye owning his own soccer club.
Football teams are not good business,
he says definitively. Maybe if you can
combine it with branding it can work
out. I think King Power and Leicester
have been successful and the same
with Everton and Chang. You have to
have a branding element for it work. Im
super far away from thinking about that
though.
The branding element is huge in the
sports world. It is something that Khun
Pranai has been caught up in over the
years. I bought a Sega Dreamcast
and JVC television because they
were shirt sponsors of Arsenal4 when
I was younger. Neither was the best
investment in hindsight. The brand
loyalty that can be created by sponsoring
a football team is good business. I have
learned a lot about this and think sports
can be a very powerful marketing tool.
It should come as no surprise to learn
that Khun Pranai and his partners
have ventured into the field of sports
marketing. One of his most creative
endeavors is The Music Run5, a unique

SECRET CODE CONNECT WITH THE STORY

1 Russell Westbrook, hes good

38 | APRIL 2015

2 Arsenal play really nice

3 The only beer served


at Stamford Bridge

5k run that enhances the natural


marriage of music and running by
turning it into a social event.
Almost everyone listens to music when
they run. The Music Run is an event
designed to be different. We want to
combine the love of running with the
love of music people have, Khun
Pranai details. Its a fun event and
one that we hope will keep growing.
Last year we did Bangkok, Jakarta and
Yangoon in 2014 and we will return
to those cities this year. Singapore is
coming up in April and Hong Kong and
Taiwan will also happen in 2015.
The idea behind The Music Run is simple.
Its to create a total musical immersion.
Each kilometer is dedicated to a unique
genre of music. The runners then vote on
which songs will be played using social
media during the build up to the run. The
course is lined with top quality speakers
that play the top songs selected by the
runners. After the run, there is a concert
for everyone to keep the party going.
Sports clearly play a big role in Khun
Pranais life, but he does take a step
back from that world for his proverbial
day job. He is Managing Director
of Siam SBrand6, a Japanese auto
body repair and paint franchise.
Khun Pranais father, Khun Pornpinit
Phornprapha, was supposed to take
the meeting with the companys
representatives but a busy schedule
prevented this.

at the business. I was in and out of


Japan learning about what they did
and seeing if it would be a good fit,
he says. The core reason I decided to
go through with it is because I thought
SBrand could fill a gap in the market.
It hasnt always been easy, but he
firmly believes in what Siam SBrand
has to offer. The company continues
to grow in popularity as more people
are introduced to its one of a kind
experience. Siam SBrand prides itself
on providing quick, high-quality repairs
with top-notch customer service.
We had to make some adjustments for
the Thai market after seeing how things
went during the first year. We started
working with insurance companies
because most Thais want to use insurance
to pay. There were some other tweaks we
also had the make but once we did that,
things started to take off, he states.
Its only natural to assume that
someone who loves sports and works
with cars would drive, or want to drive,
a sports car. Surprisingly, this is not
the case with Khun Pranai. Sports

My dad told me to go to the meeting


and see if it was any good because
he didnt really have the time for it.
SBrand were looking to expand into
the Thailand like many Japanese
companies. I spent a lot of time looking

4 Some nice looking kits

cars arent really practical to drive in


Bangkok. You spend two or three hours
in your car a day. Why would you want
to spend it in a car that is cramped
and comfortable? You cant use a fast
car in traffic, he muses. Everyone
loves a supercar, but I want one that is
comfortable to be in.
It is that kind of understated creativity
that has allowed him to create a name
for himself despite coming from a
famous family. He always wanted to
do his own thing growing up. He was
allowed that freedom and he will always
be grateful to this his parents for that.
I have always wanted to prove myself. I
never wanted to rest on my family name,
he says. They never forced me to do
anything. I have been able to pursue my
interests. They have always supported
me, and I have to thank them.
With countless interests and many other
projects in pipeline, it seems as if Khun
Pranai is just getting started. He might
even be more successful than Arsenal over
the next decade, but that is a conversation
he would probably wish to avoid.

ADVERTORIAL

SIAM SBRAND:
MAKING YOUR CAR LOOK GOOD
Driving in Bangkok can be rough on your
car. Dents, scratches and other cosmetic
issue are nearly impossible to avoid over the
course of time. The only thing worse than
having a car that looks bad is going through
the hassle of getting it repaired. Not only
is the process of getting your car repaired
time consuming, often times the quality and
customer service can be lacking.
That is why Khun Pranai Phornprapha
decided to bring SBrand to Thailand.
With over 3,000 locations in Japan,
SBrand has become the standard bearer
for quality auto body repair in the land of
the rising sun. The companys speed and
service combined with latest technology
means Siam SBrand gives customers the
best experience possible.
Siam SBrand offers a unique service
that is missing from the Thai market. We
have a speedy service with unmatched
quality. In Thailand, you have to leave
your car in the garage and wait for it
until the repairs gets done. Sometimes
this process can take weeks even if your
car only needs a minor fix because the
garage will have lots of other projects
going on, Khun Pranai said.
Siam SBrand is different because
it only takes small to medium sized
auto body and paint repairs as well

40 | APRIL 2015

as offering other services like applying


coating. The result is faster and more
efficient repairs that gets your car back
on the road sooner and with less fuss.
Thai people really like their cars. This
means they want them to look good,
and they want to be able to drive them.
We understand that and do our best to
make sure that happens, he added.
There are three areas where Khun
Pranai believes Siam SBrand stands
apart from the competition.

Quality The staff at Siam SBrand

receives the best training from the


companys Japanese staff to ensure
they are highly qualified at what they do.
Furthermore, supervisors are constantly
checking up on the work to ensure no
corners are cut. Quality control is an integral
part of the repair process at Siam SBrand.
SBrand also has a significant Research
and Development department to improve
the companys methods and technology it
uses. You can rest easy knowing your car
is getting the best in auto body repair.
This is something that has been
recognized by both insurance companies
and car dealerships who have partnered
with Siam SBrand to make sure you can
have your car fixed there.

Speed By focusing on small and

medium repairs, Siam SBrand is able to


focus on getting the work done quickly.

Major repair projects take valuable man


hours which takes away from the time
mechanics can work on the smaller
projects. This means the turnover at
Siam SBrand is quicker than at traditional
garages meaning you get back on the
road quicker with a car that is flawless.

Customer Service The automotive


repair industry is not exactly renowned
for its customer service. Most of time
cranky mechanics are forced to deal
with the general public out of necessity.
This leads to unpleasant experiences
leaving both sides annoyed.
Siam SBrand strives to provide
customer service to ensure each
and every person is satisfied with the
experience. Khun Pranai admits this
objective is still a work in progress but
believes that his company will provide
an unrivaled customer experience in the
near future. Even now, the effort on staff
training and nice facilities is apparent
from the minute you walk in the door.

CAPTAINS MESSAGE

Dear Golfing Members,


We are now well into our hot season and unavoidably entering the rainy season in a few months. We would like
members to pay particular attention to the unexpected and variable weather conditions, especially, rain, lightning and
flash thunderstorms. Even though our golf course has a weather warning system in place, there are no guarantees for the
full protection of golfers who are in the exposed elements. The system will, however, warn golfers of nearby lightning
strikes. It is advisable that golfers should take cover when the siren is sounded.
In the past month, the Golf Committee would like to thank Members whom participated in the RSC and RSGC Interport
matches. We would like also to congratulate the Thai Team for their outstanding performance in this years Rama VII
trophy. Congratulations also go to 2015 Mixed Team Championship champions of Khun Soratat and Khun Thippawan
for their great performance in the competition.
Finally, in the month of Sonkran Festival, we shall look forward to see who will be our new Club Champion, Senior Club
Champion and RBSC Chairmans Cup winner.
.
Above all, we wish you good health and enjoy golfing at RBSC.

for a chance to win one of the most
prestigious honors at the Club.
Last year saw Khun Piyakan Kriangkrai
fend off young upstart Master Nitichai
Bhumithaworn in the final. In order to
win, he needed to pull off an impressive
comeback over the last three holes to
win. This years competition will be
wide open as quite a few golfers will hit
the course for their chance to win.
RBSC Cup winner Khun Athikom

victories, however, a talent field will
have their sights set on making sure he
doesnt repeat. The wily and composed
Khun Piyabutra Vasudhara looks to
continue his success by winning the

THAI TEAM TAKES


RAMA VII TROPHY
Parity has highlighted the Rama VII Trophy in recent times.
Every team has won the trophy at least once since 2009
including the American teams first-ever victory last year.
Thailand dominated the event for some time before 2009 and
boasts a total of 36 victories in the tournaments long history.
You can add one more win to that total as the Thai team
once again returned to the top at the 2015 Rama VII Trophy.
The Thai team had several new faces this year and the
players came together to brush aside the competition. The
competition has been held 47 times with the Thai team
claiming an outright victory on 37 of those occasions. Not a
bad winning percentage.

ALL SQUARE BETWEEN


RBSC AND RSC
Malaysia was the destination for a weekend of Interport matches to begin March. The annual three-day tour began on
Friday, 6th March with a contest against Royal Selangor Club. RBSC was hoping to end their winless run in this fixture
having lost the previous two matches at RSC.
The visitors were unable to get the win but did get some consolation from the result as the two sides end the affair tied.
RBSC would be pleased with the result while RSC were left to rue their missed opportunity to win the Interport.
RSC was a very gracious host as always and the two teams capped off the day with a festive celebration and dinner. It
was a chance for Members to renew acquaintances with their counterparts from RSC over good food and many laughs.

GOLF NEWS

LET YOUR FLAG FLY

It was a historic turnout for a historic event as a record


number of participants turned out for this years Captains
Cup at RBSC. It was the fifth year of the competition
which prides itself on being much more than just a test of
golfing ability. It is social event which people of all different
backgrounds and beliefs come together through common
interests such as being Members of RBSC, golf and beer.
The format for the Captains Cup is simple. The Yanks who
were educated in America compete in a Ryder Cup-esque
tournament against the lads who studied in the UK in a oneday match. Each team is comprised of 16 RBSC Members,
handpicked by UK captain Songkran Grachangnetara and
US captain Thitinand Chumpani to represent their respective
nation.
In true Ryder Cup style, the format is four-ball with the captains
matching pairings and using strategy to get a leg up on their
counterpart. The tournament is based on the August Cup which is
a similar tournament held around Thailand and open to everyone.
RBSC Members realized that there should be something similar
for their own Club and in 2011 the Captains Cup was born.
According to Songkran, it is the spirit of the Captains Cup that
sets it apart from other golf competitions. Its not just about the

48 | APRIL 2015

golf. In fact, we have a wide range of skills that play. There are
your guys who play regularly, but there are also guys who will
only play one round of golf during the year and that happens to
be here. This is very much a social gathering, he explains.
It is this desire of inclusivism that is the hallmark of the
Captains Cup. Songkran detailed, Everyone on the two teams
probably have wildly different political and personal beliefs,
but we can still come together and have some fun because of

what we have in common. The only thing that matters on this


day is having fun and playing golf. I think that is why we all
have such a good time.
This years tournament was again won by the American team
who claimed the cup for the third straight year. This win saw
the Yanks take the lead in the series standings. The UK team
won the event the first two times before the Americans rose to
power. This means the US Captain will get to keep ahold of
the cup for a third consecutive year.
Its a great event and a great rivalry. We talk about it all year
long. The two teams are always boasting and trash talking but
it is friendly. We have all become good friends, Songkran
stated. The two teams are evenly matched and it is just an exciting event. We all come out, have a great time, play some golf
and then have a party afterward.
This year featured a special guest as Mark Kent, the British Ambassador to Thailand, stopped by to give a rousing a speech and
join in the post-match festivities. Songkran hopes this becomes another tradition for the Captains Cup. It was great for Mark
to come and hangout. He had a really great speech. Maybe it becomes a yearly thing. Who knows? Maybe we can have the next
American Ambassador come out to, he said.
Songkran was also quick to thank the RBSC staff for their efforts in making the Captains Cup such a success. We couldnt do it
with the help of the staff. The really rolled out the red carpet for us and did a great job with everything, he added.
Despite all the fun, it will be another year of glory for the Yanks and disappointment for the Brits. At the end of the day, the
better team won. I wont make any excuses. If there is one caveat, it is that it is harder to find real Brits. Im sure we will be
stronger next year though, Songkran concluded.

NEW CHAMPS AT H.M. QUEEN


RAMBHAI BARNI CUP
For the past two years, Khun Jittakarn Chandraviroj and Khun
Montira Wongtrakun have won the H.M. Queen Rambhai Barni
Cup. The duos success was no fluke but a rare three-peat would
not be in the stars for them this year. A new team would be able
to raise the trophy this year in a wide open competition.
Khun Chindarat Kruavanichkit and Khun Phandhida
Sucharittanonta were the victors of this years H.M. Queen
Rambhai Barni Cup on 10th February. Finishing as runners up
were Dr. Yolvilai Sethabutra and Khun Sudachan Euarchukiatti

FAMILIAR FACE WINS PRINCE


CHULA CHAKRABONGSE CUP
Khun Ausanee Sosothikul added another trophy to her already impressive collection by winning the Prince Chula
Chakrabongse Cup on 16th March. Khun Ausanee has been no stranger to the winners circle having won several
tournaments over the past two years.
However, this one was far different than her other victories. The Prince Chula Chakrabongse Cup is a bogey competition
where birdies or better count for a point and a bogey or worse will deduct a point from the players score. The lady with
the most points at the end of the round is the winner and this year that was Khun Ausanee. Khun Nitayada Purananda
proved successful under the format as well finishing as the runner-up.

PHACHARA WINS PGM
CCM RAHMAN PUTRA
CHAMPIONSHIP
fledging career. He made headlines
when he won the 2013 Hua Hin Open on
home soil at the age of 14 before turning
professional in August last year. He also
earned an Asian Tour card at Qualifying
earlier this year after winning his first
professional title in Thailand.
Im very happy with this win, smiled
Phachara. I couldnt have asked for a
better way to win a tournament because
my game was very good. I was a bit
nervous but it helps when you have
two eagles in your round! My short
game really helped me this week.
Phacharas win earned him US$9,436
and six valuable Official World Golf
Ranking (OWGR) points. The ADT
will reward the top-five finishers on the
Order of Merit at the end of this season
with Asian Tour cards for 2016.

Phachara Khongwatmai secured a


convincing four-shot win at the PGM
CCM Rahman Putra Championship
to become the youngest champion on
the Asian Development Tour (ADT)
in March. The immensely talented
Thai, who turns 16 in May, showed
little signs of pressure when he fired
two eagles for a brilliant six-under-par
66 and a 20-under-par 268 total at the
Kelab Rahman Putra Malaysia.
He defeated local hope Danny Chia and
Shane Smith of the United States, who
closed with a 70 and 64 respectively, to
settle for tied second at the RM200,000

(approximately US$55,400) ADT event.


Sutijet Kooratanapisan (69) of Thailand
finished a further shot back on 273
while Quincy Quek of Singapore, the
halfway stage leader, finished fifth
following a 69 for a 274 total.
Phachara, who held the share of the
overnight lead with Chia, got off to a
flying start when he eagled the third hole
from 10-feet before making the turn in
34. He pulled clear from the chasing pack
with a huge 25-footer eagle on hole 10
before ending his round on a flourish with
birdies on holes 15 and 18.
The victory is a huge boost in his

With the Olympic Games looming in


2016 where golf will be reintroduced
as a medal sport, players in the region
could earn their spots in Rio de Janeiro
by earning Official World Golf Ranking
points through the Asian Tour and ADT.
The Asian Development Tour
was launched in 2010 with the
aim of creating a career pathway
for professional golfers in Asia.
Sanctioned by the Asian Tour,
the Asian Development Tour will
ultimately create a new playing
platform for emerging stars from
across Asia and around the world. It is
a stepping stone to the Asian Tour and
the exciting world of international golf.

THONGCHAI AND
THAWORN CONTINUE TO
SPEARHEAD THAILANDS
SUCCESS ON THE
ASIAN TOUR
Randhawa, Indias first Asian Tour number one in 2002,
is ranked fourth with US$3.36 million thanks largely to
eight career wins while current Asian Tour Order of Merit
winner Anirban Lahiri, who won two tournaments last
month, jumped into ninth place with US$2.5 million, seven
years after joining the Asian Tour.

Thaworn Wiratchant

Asian golf legend Thongchai Jaidee has maintained his


stature as the highest earning golfer on the Asian Tour ahead
of countryman Thaworn Wiratchant, with five other Thais

The 45-year-old Thongchai, the only player in history to
win three Order of Merit crowns, has accumulated US$5.31
million in earnings on the Asian Tour since making his debut
on the regions premier Tour in 1999. His achievement is
highly commendable as Thongchai has featured extensively
with great success as well in Europe over the past decade.
With a record 18 career victories in Asia, evergreen Thaworn,
who is 48, sits in second place with US$4.25 million in
earnings, with fellow Thais Prayad Marksaeng (US$3.29
million), Prom Meesawat (US$2.56 million) and Chapchai
Nirat (US$2.43 million) featuring in the top-10 of the Career
Money List in fifth, eighth and 10th positions respectively.
Kiradech Aphibarnrat, the 2013 Asian Tour number one when
he earned US$1.12 million that season, is ranked 12th with
US$2.33 million while Chawalit Plaphol is 19th on the list
with US$1.8 million. The seven Thais have an accumulated
51 Asian Tour victories, ranking Thailand as the most
successful golfing nation in the region to date.
Indias golfing stars come a close second behind Thailand,
with three players Jeev Milkha Singh, Jyoti Randhawa
and Anirban Lahiri featuring in the top-10. Shiv Kapur
and S.S.P Chawrasia are 12th and 14th on the list, while
Arjun Atwal is ranked 21st. Singh, Asias number one in
2006 and 2008, is third on the earnings list with US$3.37
million. With six career wins on the Asian Tour, he also
holds the record of earning the highest prize winnings in a
single season with US$1.45 million in 2008.

Other notable names in the top-20 Career Money List include


Singapores Mardan Mamat in 11th position with US$2.33
million in prize winnings, Chinese Taipeis Lin Wen-tang who
is 16thwith US$2.06 million, and Filipino duo Juvic Pagunsan

GOLF TIPS

The Key Move : Making


a smooth transition
Without a doubt, the most important move
as well as the most difficult move in the golf
swing is the transition from the top of the
backswing down to the pre-impact position.

When making a backswing, the shoulders


will rotate horizontally around your spine
(which is tilted slightly forward from your
hips). However, they (your shoulders) do
not rotate horizontally immediately on the
downswing. For a very brief instance, the
shoulders will move vertically (your hips
will move first on the downswing).
You must feel the right shoulder dropping
the arms falling and the right elbow
tucking in to your hip. As you do this,
you must keep your wrists cocked while
maintaining a 90 degree angle between your
right forearm and the shaft. When the shaft
drops down parallel to the ground, the wrists
should still be in the cocked position. Now
is when you can release the wrists and strike
the golf ball with tremendous power and lots
of clubhead speed.

I Have Rotated My Shoulders 90 Degrees


Horizontally And My Weig ht Is On The Inside Of
My Rig ht Knee. My Wrists Are Fully Cocked At
The Top And Have Formed A 90 Degree Angle
Between My Forearms And The Shaft.

My weig ht is shifted 90 degrees onto my left leg.


My rig ht shoulder has dropped down. I still have
the same 90 degree angle between my forearms
and shaft like I had at the top.

Most golfers will rotate their shoulders


horizontally on the downswing which
makes your angle of attack to steep and
swing path too much outside to inside
which makes the ball slice.
So, work on making a slow backswing by
moving the legs and hips first on the downswing
and feel your right shoulder dropping to get
THE KEY Move correct!

Notice how you can see throug h my forearms.


The shaft is parallel with my toes. My rig ht heel
is beginning to come up off the ground. The
clubhead can now hit the ball from an inside path.

I have uncocked my wrist too early on the


downswing. The clubhead will swing across the
ball from an outside path (probably going to slice
the ball). My weig ht is still on my rig ht foot.

RBSC FOOD

AN APRIL TRADITION

Its hot outside and the warm season has engulfed Bangkok.
There is only one dish made especially to beat the heat. The
Kao Chae set is a mixture of cool, refreshing tastes that offer
a respite from the searing temperatures. This April tradition
is over 200 years old and has been pleasing generations
with its great flavour.
The Kao Chae set at RBSC contains everything you would
expect. The jasmine rice in scented water is here to keep you
cool. There is stuffed pepper with minced pork and deep fried
shimp paste balls. The sweet turnip and stuffed shallots with
shrimp paste bring vegetables into equations. Finally, you get
to choose between the sweet shredded beef or pork.
It wouldnt be April with Kao Chae so stop by for this
delightful culinary tradition at RBSC.

Please remember the Kao Chae special are only available at the
Dining Room, Fast Food and Verandah areas. Come down to RBSC
to enjoy this April classic before it is gone until next year.

DONT FORGET DESSERT

Be sure to conclude your meal with a refreshing mango dessert after enjoying a pleasant Kao Chae set. The mango sticky rice
is the traditional choice and one that is always a good selection. The ripe, fresh mango is a perfect match for the sticky rice
drizzled with a little condensed milk. The mango yoghurt mousse is a wonderful dessert, too. The cream moussed acting as
a smooth vehicle for the mango with whipped cream on the side for a little added sweetness. These dessert specials are only
available In April at RBSC Food and Beverage outlets.

POLO FOOD

EXCELLENT E-SARN ON
SPECIAL MENU
E-sarn is the highlight of the special menu at the RBSC Polo
Club. These dishes exemplify the best E-sarn cuisine as to
offer. All of the spices and tastes are there to give you an
authentic feel here in Bangkok.

Red tilapia Num Tok

The red tilapia Num Tok is a simple dish but See Fah has
perfected the flavor to make something unforgettable. You
really have to try this one if you like Nam Tok. It is also
available with salmon too. Bring a friend and share both for a
nice lunch or dinner if you cant decide on just one.
The Som Tum with lotus flow takes classic Som Tum and gives
it an E-sarn twist. The Northeastern-style bamboo shoot salad
(Soop Nor-Mai) is amazing. This is the dish for you if you like
spicy food. The Northeastern-style mixed mushroom soup is
not as spicy but no less flavourful.
Dont miss out on this special menu. It is only available for a
limited time at Polo Club. Please visit the Dining Room, Air
Bar and Coffee Shop for these and all your favourites. For
reservations, please call 02-2526731 ext. 261.

DELICIOUS PARINGS
There is nothing quite like a nice piece of meat paired with
the perfect wine. The two usually move together in harmony,
enhancing the taste of each. The latest special at RBSC
Polo Club brings a menu that matches a wonderful wine with
masterful meat to create a perfect pairing.

Grilled salmon steak

The grilled salmon steak has been partnered with a white


wine. The chardonnay does very well with fish as both are not
overpowering allowing each to breathe. The heavy Coq au
Vin has been paired with a pinot noir. The red wine highlights
the wine sauce of the dish to give it great life. The New York
cut sirloin steak is accompanied by a cabernet sauvignon.
The classic flavor of both goes great together.
There are also other items available on the COBALT Recipe menu.
You can chose from the Eringi mushroom salad, the smoked
salmon salad COLBALT style or the smoked salmon sandwich. All
three use the unique COBALT-style you will have to try for yourself.

New York cut sirloin steak

Be sure to stop by the Dining Room, Air Bar or Coffee Shop


for this special promotional Western menu as well as all the
other delicious dishes available at Polo Club.
