Dodge City Community College (DCCC) announced on Aug. 7, Conquistador golfer, Supakit Seelanagae has earned an invite back to the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship golf tournament which he competed in last year.


This comes following Seelanagae’s strong freshman campaign for the DCCC men's golf team, along with recent performances in his home country of Thailand.


Seelanagae will represent his home country of Thailand again at the 2022 Asia-Pacific Championship, taking place Oct. 27 to Oct. 30 at Amata Spring Country Club in Chonburi, Thailand.


Last year at the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship, Seelanagae finished with a four-round score of 289 to place 43rd in a field that featured over 90 golfers.


In his freshman year at DCCC Seelanagae helped the Conquistadors finish 10th as a team at the NJCAA Division I National Championships while finishing tied for 20th individually.


He helped the Conquistadors take fourth place at Districts, second in Region 6, and second in KJCCC. He finished third individually in KJCCC and at Districts. During the season he picked up first-team All-KJCCC honors, Golf Coaches Association of America NJCAA DI All-District honors, and was named to the PING NJCAA DI Freshman All-American team.


In competition in Thailand along with his action in the U.S. as a Conquistador, Seelanagae has five wins and 16 Top 10 finishes in tournaments over 2021-22 and is ranked 356th by the World Amateur Golf Ranking.


Before heading back to compete in the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship, Seelanagae will start his sophomore campaign with the Dodge City Community College Conquistadors men’s golf team in early September for the fall season.
