Did you know?

In 1991 Prom's father Suthep became the first home winner of the Thailand Open, an event that was first played in 1965. Guided by his father, Prom Meesawat enjoyed an excellent amateur career, with his most notable wins coming in the World Junior Golf Championships (1997, 2002), Asia Pacific Junior Championship (several) and Thailand Amateur.

Prom joined the ranks of professional golfers in 2004, recording his maiden win on the Asian Tour in the 2006 SK Telecom Open in South Korea. A second win came at the Yeangder TPC in 2014 in Taipei.
