Thailand’s Prayad Marksaeng took a two-shot lead to the clubhouse at the $300,000 Queen’s Cup in Koh Samui on Friday with a flawless 65, after another strong showing from the home contingent. Six birdies including four on the back nine put him on an eight under par 134 after two days play on the Thai island.

His round, which included a 30-foot birdie putt on the tenth hole, means Thai players have led after both days’ play so far. Prayad said a victory for his compatriots was a must in an event named after his nation’s Queen Sirikit.

“Before the round, I told myself it does not matter who is leading, as long as it’s a Thai leading, I am ok with it,” he said according to an Asian Tour statement.
