The date for the Thongchai Jaidee Foundation tournament, one of the most important events on the circuit, will be determined later.

ATGT commissioner Jakraphong Thongyai said the 23-year-old tour will continue to give chances to players to develop their skills.

“During this tough time as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to announce our full schedule for the coming season. Our players will have more opportunities to play. It will be the biggest ever total purse of about B40 million,” he said.

Only a few tournaments were held this year due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Among its sponsors are the Sports Authority of Thailand, National Sports Development Fund and Singha Corporation.
