Aphibarnrat storms to Perth glory

Kiradech Aphibarnrat won his fourth European Tour title after a 2 and 1 victory over James Nitties in the final of the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth.

The Thai only entered this event seven days ago and arrived having not played any practice rounds at Karrinyup Country Club.

He needed four trips up the 18th in a play-off on Saturday night to claim the last of the 24 spots in the Super 6 and then had to come through five rounds of match play and 35 holes on Sunday.

After wins over Ben Eccles, Yusaku Miyazato, Sean Crocker and Lucas Herbert, he produced one final push to beat Australian Nitties and move back into the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

The victory is the 28 year old's second in a match play event after his win at the 2015 Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play.
