Mr. Kiradech Aphibarnrat
Kiradech Aphibarnrat is a Thai professional golfer who plays on the Asian, European, and PGA Tours. Aphibarnrat turned professional in 2008 and began playing on the Asian Tour and the Japan Golf Tour in 2009.
HIs first professional victory came in 2009 at the Mercedes-Benz Tour’s Singha Pattaya Open, which he won by 11 strokes, earning US$50,000. Aphibarnrat’s first Asian Tour win was at the 2011 SAIL Open.
He won his second European Tour title at the Shenzhen International in a sudden death playoff over Li Haotong. Having led the tournament at the 54 hole stage, he trailed late in the back nine, but eagled the 17th hole and then missed a birdie putt on the 18th for the outright victory. He would go on to birdie the first extra hole to claim victory. Aphibarnrat became only the second player from Thailand, after Thongchai Jaidee, to record multiple European Tour wins.
