Thai golfer Thongchai Jaidee is so close to qualifying for his third Masters that he's desperate to ensure it by winning the Avantha Masters this week from a host of European and Asian Tour winners. Thongchai, an Asian Tour Order of Merit winner three times, is ranked 59th after three top-10 finishes in five starts this season. Being in the top 50 by the end of the month would nail down Thongchai's return to Augusta, and he believes he has ''a good chance.'' Among those standing between Thongchai and victory at Jaypee Greens in Greater Noida are six European Ryder Cup players: Colin Montgomerie, Edoardo Molinari, Ignacio Garrido, David Howell, Thomas Levet and Philip Price.
