Somewhat unbelievably, Atiwit (Jazz is actually his nickname) has been a professional for over 10 years, having turned pro at age 15! Jazz spent two weeks as a monk at the end of the 2016 season before recording his breakthrough win in 2017. He cites this time as allowing him to now "compete with less pressure." It has obviously worked as Jazz recorded victories in each of the three years following his Buddhist retreat.
Jazz fell outside the top 200 in the world rankings in 2021 despite a 2nd in Dubai and 4th at the Dutch Open.
He considers Kiradech Aphibarnrat his mentor and the pair often play practice rounds together if playing at the same event.
Jazz was a member at Bay Hill (Home of the Arnold Palmer Invitational) during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. He practiced there for 5 months, playing over 100 rounds.
Pressure Performance Analysis
Jazz is a very capable front runner or chaser in Asia. Of his 7 wins, four of these have been by at least 4 shot margins. He's a player than is not afraid to accelerate away from the field if in the mood. Given his lack of experience on the European and PGA Tours there remains a doubt as to how he will handle the pressure on the bigger stage. However, if he follows up his Asian Tour performances he'll be prolific at higher levels too. His Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set at 3 ⭐⭐⭐ on the basis of his record to date in Asia and inexperience in Europe.
✅ Jazz was three shots back entering the final round at the Kenya Savannah Classic. Shot a fine 64 to force a playoff with Daniel Van Tonder. Lost out on the third playoff hole to a Van Tonder birdie.
➖ Began the final round of the Irish Open 2 shots behind Aaron Rai. Took the lead with a birdie on the 13th hole on Sunday but immediately followed that with a terrible tee shot on 14 which led to a double bogey. Started the day 3rd and finished the day in 3rd.
Jazz is a player who can really stay hot for multiple weeks. Of his seven wins, four have followed a top-7 finish the week before. He also has numerous other examples of multiple top-10 finishes in successive weeks.
Jazz produced a 2nd, 4th and 9th on the back of poor results weeks prior.

Q. Probably a Top 15 finish, but obviously a nice feeling to know that you can play in these events with the best players in the world?
JAZZ JANEWATTANANOND: Yeah, it's still a process of learning and try to get there and try to play week-in and week-out like this is going to be demanding. I still need to improve but now I know what I need to improve on more.
