One For Kiradech, Thailand And Asia!
Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat once again proved that he was world-class as he pulled himself together and outlasted the final round field to claim the title to the 2018 ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth played in the Western Australian city of Perth.
After three days of stroke play, Aphibarnrat managed to wiggle into the final round for the knock-out match-play format. For his win, the Thai super star banked a check for AUD$283,330.
In the final round of match-play, Aphibarnrat KO’ed Australia’s James Nitties 2-1.
The ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth is a unique event – there is a 36-hole cut to the top 65 and ties. Then there is a 54-hole cut to exactly the top 24, with playoffs to figure out the placement and seeding for a tournament of six-hole match play on Sunday. The top eight players in stroke-play qualifying get a first-round bye, before playing down to a champion.
