Thanks to new rules, he will be in office for another four years with his first six terms each lasting two years.

Rangsrid vowed to take Thai golf to the world level.

“We have won about 420 titles [during his first six terms]. In my seventh term, my aim is to push Thailand to the world level alongside South Korea and Japan,” he said.

“We will send our golfers to compete in as many overseas tournaments as possible.”

He admitted that it has been a difficult time for his players as there is no competition during the COVID-19 pandemic.
