GUANGDONG, China — The World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions field includes players from 23 different countries, creating quite the melting pot at the final WGC event of the season. But three players from Thailand have brought their culture -- and menu -- to Mission Hills Golf Club like no other contingent.
Traveling with hot pots, utensils and everything else needed to set up a mobile kitchen, Thaworn Wiratchant, Prom Meesawat and their caddies hosted Asian Tour media director Chuah Choo Chang in one of the group's hotel rooms and cooked an authentic Thai dinner of spicy curry, local crabs (provided by a member of the golf course staff who is also from Thailand) and vegetables they found on the Olazabal Course's 12th hole.
