Chiangmai Classic postponed after Thai unrest

HONG KONG - The $750,000 Chiangmai Golf Classic, originally scheduled to take place in Thailand next month, has been postponed, organisers announced Wednesday.

A deepening political crisis in the divided kingdom saw martial law declared last month and the organisers said in a statement released by the Asian Tour that the event in the northern Thai city would be rescheduled later in the year.

Last year’s inaugural Chiangmai Classic, won by Australia’s Scott Hend, also featured an appearance by four-time major winner Ernie Els of South Africa who tied for 14th place.
