Kiradech Aphibarnrat

A 4-time European Tour winner, Kiradech has established himself as one of the elite players on the European Tour in recent years with his consistent performances and particularly his skill in matchplay. Having claimed the Maybank Championship in 2013 and the Shenzhen International in 2015, he became the youngest Asian player to reach three European Tour wins later that year by winning the Paul Lawrie Matchplay at the age of 26. He knocked on the door several times in 2017 in big-purse Rolex Series events, but despite going winless, still recorded a career high finish on 11th on the Race to Dubai.
Having re-established his ranking among the top-50 in the world – and in doing so clinching a spot in the 2018 Masters – by making a dramatic 72nd hole eagle at the Indonesian Masters, Kiradech went on to rejoin the winners’ circle in early 2018 as he lifted another Matchplay title, this time the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth.
He subsequently made good showings at the WGC Mexico, finishing T5, and the WGC Dell Matchplay, where he defeated rising star Jon Rahm 4&3 before losing out to eventual winner Bubba Watson in the quarter-finals. Following the event he reached a career-high world ranking of 29.
Well known for his love of sports cars, expensive watches, Yeezy shoes and vaping, Kiradech’s popularity has soared as golf fans the world over have been drawn to his unique swing, aggressive style of play and laid back demeanor.
