Thongchai's success marked another chapter in his impressive career, which started as a 13-year-old playing with a makeshift three iron.
However the Thai, wearing his lucky red T-shirt, held his nerve and sealed it with a birdie on the par three 16th, which is proving to be his lucky hole as he had aced the same hole en route to his triumph 12 months ago.
Leading by three heading to the tricky 16th, Thongchai knocked his tee shot to 12 feet of the flag and rolled in the birdie putt which killed off his challengers' hopes.
