It's been over one year since Thailand's Tiranan Yoopan had her hands on silverware on the Ladies Asian Golf Tour. Having won in August last year - at the Technology Cup - in Taiwan, Thailand's Tiranan has been going through a dry spell. The 26-year-old from Bangkok, is eager to be back on the winning trail again and it's going to start with this week's US$300,000 Hero Women's India Open at the Delhi Golf Club, one of India's oldest golf club, in downtown New Delhi.
So, after the last event in Pattaya (Dec 7-9), at the Thailand Ladies Open, Tiranan has been only cooking and working at the driving range. She is a noted chef who specialises in making delicious noodles at her brother's restaurant - Tar Noodles - in Bang Na Trad Road Km15.5.
"I love cooking and I love golf. It's fun," said Tiranan, who started cooking on trial and error basis.
However, this week, Tiranan, is not thinking of cooking noodles but she hopes to "cook up a storm" at the Delhi Golf Club.
"I don't want my time and effort in pratising golf to go to waste. I need results too. I have a sponsor and I need to keep them pleased, so this week we have a big event and I hope to please my sponsor," Tiranan said after playing a practice round.
"I have not been playing too well, though my game is good. That could be probably because of my poor course management. I need to manage my golf well and I believe I can come with good scores," she said, adding that she in confident of getting a good result.
