Wiratchant's 63 puts him in Queen's Cup lead

Koh Samui, Thailand: Thailand’s veteran star Thaworn Wiratchant hit a glorious back-nine 28 en route to an eight-under-par 63 to snatch the halfway lead at the Queen’s Cup tournament today.
The 50-year-old Thaworn, who holds the most Asian Tour wins with 18 titles, was in mesmerising form at Santiburi Samui Country Club, a venue which saw him triumph in the 2012 and 2014 Queen’s Cup and 2008 Bangkok Airways Open.
After turning in one under with two birdies and one bogey, the double Asian Tour number one rolled in seven birdies, including four-in-a-row from the 10th hole to equal his best round at Samui and lead by one from playing partner Nicholas Fung of Malaysia.
Fung, who is chasing a maiden Asian Tour title, carded a 68 while six players - India’s S.S.P. Chawrasia (68) and Rashid Khan (70), Filipino Angelo Que (70) and Juvic Pagunsan (67), Thailand’s Prayad Marksaeng (70) and Pasavee Lertvilai (66) – are two off the pace in the US$500,000 tournament sponsored by Bangkok Airways and Sports Authority of Thailand.
