The golfer started to play professionally in December 2010. In September 2011, Atiwit played his first event on the Japan Golf Tour, the 2011 Asia-Pacific Panasonic Open.
There, the player was successful in cutting and finishing in a tie for 65th.

Jazz Janewattananond Girlfriend, Sarina Schmidt
Golfer Jazz’s girlfriend, Sarina Schmidt, was born on May 19, 1999. Schmidt is half Thai and half German, as her mother is from Thailand and her dad is from Germany.
Her family resides in Munich, which is one of the famous places for the origin of the young golf player.
Sarina has been playing golf professionally for Germany since 2015. The golfer also participates in the European Tour and the Women’s European Tour.
Sarina had previously secured a second-place finish in the German Girls AG 16 Championship in 2014.

Jazz and Sarina do not share much about their personal lives on social media. However, on November 10, 2022, Sarina posted about Jazz on Instagram with the caption:
“I’m so proud of your win in Morocco and super happy to share this memory with you! You deserved it so much and inspire me to get better.”
It seems like the two golf stars are supportive of each other’s careers.
Story Behind The Name Jazz
As we all know, the actual name of the golfer is Atiwit. Jazz is his nickname which was the name given by his father, as his father loved Jazz music.
“Even when I hit a bad shot, they don’t boo. And they’re really funny trying to pronounce my name,” he said.
Janewattananond has recently grown significantly, and he has even started working on his signature.
He is now choosing to sign his name as “Jazz” rather than his 15-letter last name. To give his signature more value, the golfer replaces the letter J with a musical note.
Atiwit has also mentioned that people like his autograph and that he likes to keep things simple and tries to do that all the time.
Jazz Once Was A Monk
Jazz Janewattananond took some time for himself right after the 2016 golf season. He lived as a Buddhist monk for two weeks. He claims that the experience helped his golfing.
“It’s something that every Thai or Buddhist does, but for me, it made a difference in my golf career,” he said.
The player explained that every Thai or Buddhist has to go and become a monk when one turns 21.
