Darren Clarke's upcoming role as captain of the European teams for both the Ryder Cup and the EurAsia Cup meant he watched every move of the field at the Thailand Golf Championship this past week.

 

But it turns out there's only really been one player the Irishman has had eyes for - 17-year-old Chinese phenomenon Jin Cheng.

 

After playing with Jin on Saturday's third round at Amata Spring Country Club [url=http://www.airmax97solde.fr/...lanche-solde-49.html]Homme Air VaporMax Laceless Pure Platinum Blanche Solde[/url] , Clarke tweeted, "He's the best 17-year-old I've seen since @McIlroyRory … seriously impressed."

 

High praise, indeed, considering -McIlroy has progressed from his teens to become a winner of four majors and a one-time world No.1.

 

It wasn't just Clarke that was left impressed, either - the same could be said of everyone gathered at the fifth edition of the Thai tournament that saw Jin finish 10 under par, that made him by far the tournament's best amateur. He -ended the event tied for 11th behind eventual winner Jamie Donaldson of Wales.

 

Jin has yet to play his first major [url=http://www.airmax97solde.fr/...x-noir-solde-62.html]Homme Femme Off White x Air Vapormax Noir Solde[/url] , -although his victory at the 2015 Asia--Pacific Amateur Championship in Hong Kong in October got him an automatic place at the US Masters at Augusta in April.

 

The teenager said he had talked with Clarke - winner of 2011 Open Championship at Royal St George's - as they made their way around the Amata Spring layout and took the Northern Irishman's advice to work a little harder on his short game.

 

"It's been a pretty good week. I especially played well the last three days," said Jin.

 

"I hadn't heard about what -Darren tweeted but I played today with a guy who's younger than me [16-year-old Thai Phachara Khongwatmai], so maybe Darren should take a look at him. He's pretty good, too.

 

"I enjoyed my time with Darren and will do what he told me. You just have to listen to a guy who's done so much in the game."

 

Jin went 73-67-69-69 across the par-72 course and showed all week he has the length and the accuracy - as well as the poise - to mix it up with the game's very best.

 

Jin plans a few weeks off before he turns his attention to life at the University of Southern California, with whom he has signed a letter of intent. And then there's the other little matter of the US Masters to look forward to as well.

 

"This event has giving me lots of confidence," said Jin. "I think I'm done for 2015. I need to rest a bit because I have a big year ahead with school … and [url=http://www.airmax97solde.fr/...lanche-solde-27.html]Homme Femme Off White x Air Vapormax Blanche Solde[/url] , of course, Augusta."

 

BEIJING, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Piyathida Ployumsri set the early pace at the BridgeCC CLPGA Beijing Heritage on Wednesday as the Thai veteran opened with a six-under 66 for a one shot lead in the Chinese capital.

 

Singaporean rookie pro Amanda Tan was second on 67, a shot ahead of South Korean Bae In-ji and China's Sui Xiang at 68. Saranporn Langkulgasettrin, the China LPGA Tour Order of Merit leader, was equal fifth as the Thai shot 69 to sit tied with Chinese amateurs Wang Xinying and Ji Yifan at the RMB200 [url=http://www.airmax97solde.fr/...lanche-solde-64.html]Off-Blanche x Vapormax Noir Blanche Solde[/url] ,000 tournament.

 

Starting her early morning round on the Beijing Orient Tianxing Country Club back nine, Piyathida came out firing with three birdies and an eagle two at the 406-yard 17th hole to make the turn at 31. After dropping her only stroke of the day with a five at the 362-yard second, she closed with consecutive birdies starting from the eighth hole.

 

With thunder threatening play and coming off a two-week break for injury where she didn't play any golf, the 23-year-old was surprised by her round.

 

"This is actually the first tournament after the injury, it's quite an amazing result for me," said Piyathida. "The golf course is nice. The standard of Chinese golf courses are pretty nice. It's not so easy for me and not too difficult for me. Today my driver and irons are good [url=http://www.airmax97solde.fr/...max-95-solde-20.html]Homme Noir Air Max 95 Solde[/url] , my putting is normal, my irons made me have the opportunity to make birdies. Tomorrow, I will just play the same game plan. I won't be too aggressive."

 

Tan, who turned professional in February, opened with a round that featured seven birdies and two bogeys. The teenager said the Tianxing fairways were longer than most clubs, but their narrowness fitted well with her game.

 

"I feel good today [url=http://www.airmax97solde.fr/...-black-solde-34.html]Air Max 95 Homme Triple Black Solde[/url] , my irons and putting are good," said the Sentosa Golf Club product.

 

"I won't change my game play. If the iron is good tomorrow I will be aggressive. If it is not good enough I will change a little."

 

Sui, another rookie pro, said the conditions got better as her round progressed. Her round included five birdies against a lone bogey at the 399-yard, par-four third hole.

 

"This is the first day, nothing is impossible over the next two days. Tomorrow I will keep the condition and game plan as I had today [url=http://www.airmax97solde.fr/...lanche-solde-97.html]Air Max 95 Homme Blanche Solde[/url] ," said the 18-year-old Guangdong native. "This golf course you need to play accurately. I will try to avoid shooting the ball into the rough."

 

The BridgeCC CLPGA Beijing Heritage is the second in a series of new events this year featuring low purses that are designed to give young players from China and around the region playing experience in a tournament setting.

 

Ning Yu, founder and chairman of Bridge CC, a multiplatform sports service agency, said the purpose of this event was to bring sport and education closer together to give more teenagers the opportunity to play with professional golfers.

 

"Sports is an inseparable part of education, including frustration education, fair competition and teamwork [url=http://www.airmax97solde.fr/...lic-or-solde-20.html]Femme Air Max 97 Blanche Metallic Or Solde[/url] ," he said. "In the near future, I believe that in the next five to 10 years, the China LPGA Tour will be the same as the Chinese economy and achieve remarkable results."

 

Beijing Orient Tianxing Country Club is a 6,270-yard, par-72 layout designed by TK Pen.
