The opening day saw Thailand paired with the Czech Republic and Paul and Pim made a solid start.  Their 65 point score resulted in them lying in joint 3rd place behind China on 68 points.  Portugal, the home team and the favourites, finished on 73 points.

With Thailand starting day two eight points behind the leaders, Portugal, they knew they had to get off to a flying start.  They did just that and by the 16th hole Thailand were in the lead.  Coming down the 18th the Thailand team knew they would probably need four points to clinch it, Paul Judge, green side in three shots, played an unbelievable shot from the waste bunker and holed the putt for his five securing his two points for the team which would prove vital.


China now out the picture after a bad 17th hole, Portugal needing a birdie and par down the last to tie, this proved too much and meant that Thailand had overcame an eight point defict to win the World Corporate Golf Challenge Final by two points. Their remarkable score of 80 stableford points as pair, a score never been shot before in 25 years of the WCGC finals


Paul Judge part of Thailand winning team said, ‘This has been a truly unbelievable experience, we never thought after being eight shots behind after day one we would be WCGC Champions, Chris Watson our licensee jokingly  this morning go out there and get 80 points and we might win it.’  Paul went on to say ‘ Firstly I have to thank my playing partner Pim who was unbelievable all weekend. I also have to thank Fore Management and Chris Watson the Thailand Licensee for giving this opportunity to attend such an amazing event, also Blue Horzion Developments Thailand’s title sponsor and Thai Airways for flying us here all the way from Thailand.
