Whilst at the tournament hosting Dusit Thani Hotel, they potted 10 Christina trees as a token toward stemming global warming. The trees later will be planted at the stadium to beautify its landscape.
Rattanachai said inviting PTT Open players to do environmental work has become a tradition, allowing them to bond with the city and hopefully return.
