Jaidee is pleased with how he has played in recent weeks, and feels he can give a good showing at the tournament he won twice before (albeit at a different course).
He said: "The course this year is going to be tougher than last year. I've been playing quite well for the last two weeks in Qatar and Dubai, I played the Pro-Am yesterday and I'm very confident – I hit the ball very well and I'm putting very well too.
"I think on this course everything has to be perfect if you want to win the tournament."
Jaidee believes the strong field at the US$3 million tournament is good for the development of the Asian Tour.
Jaidee said: "The Maybank Malaysian Open has been going for ten years and has been really successful, and this year they have made it more high quality.
"It's good for the Asian players; it makes them more confident to play with strong players from Europe, which is important.
"I think it's good for Asia and it's a good chance for Asian players – every year there are Asian players on the leaderboard."
