Late-addition Aphibarnrat rallies to win World Super 6 Perth

Kiradech Aphibarnrat is the World Super 6 champion after a thrilling final day in Perth

THAILAND'S Kiradech Aphibarnrat won the World Super 6 Perth title, beating Australian James Nitties 2 & 1 in yesterday's matchplay final.

He moved into the last-16 with a one hole victory over Australia's Ben Eccles but his second round match took 11 holes to complete, with Aphibarnrat battling back from a hole down to tie his match with Japan's Yusaku Miyazato and eventually progressing on the fifth shootout hole.

Herbert appeared the main home hope throughout most of Sunday's play, particularly once amateur Min Woo Lee's incredible run ended in the quarter finals having knocked out the highest ranked player in the field Satoshi Kodaira and stroke play victor Prom Meesawat. It once again came down to the final hole, but no shootout holes were necessary for Aphibarnrat to win 1UP.

Aphibarnrat impressed not only on the course but off it, his comments after his semi-final victory over Lucas Herbert showing a touch of class.

Sean Crocker was his next victim, another 1UP result after the American made bogey at the 18th to Aphibarnrat's par. "James (Nitties) is playing so good but he's just unlucky at the end".

3 - Lee lost in the quarter finals to England's Sam Horsfield. Herbert will leave happy though having taken up affiliate membership with the European PGA last week. "I had four starts already sort of off my own bat".

Min Woo Lee excited the home fans early on Sunday.

For Nitties, now without status on the European Tour, there was ultimate disappointment but hope for the future.

Flexible 'e-skin' can heal itself
The whole recycling takes about 30 minutes at 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 degrees Celsius) or 10 hours at room temperature. The most interesting thing about this new e-skin is its ability to heal itself when it is torn apart.

The Florida-based Horsfield fell to Nitties in the semifinal.

"Considering I was a four-footer away from losing the first match, it was pretty positive stuff getting to the finals", he said after losing the final.

He won the first hole in the six-hole final but went off the tee on the third, allowing Aphibarnrat to square the match.

The Thai drove the final nail in at the 5 hole, normally the 12, hitting his tee shot close at the par-3. It means a lot. I'm working so hard.

He was chasing a tournament win to secure his European Tour card but could not get past his first opponent.

"First hole you just see clearly, second hole I hit driver, just 130 yards to the flag on the first round, and then I walked down the fairway and looked at my caddie saying, 'did you just let me hit driver on this one?' It's so narrow, I tell him I won't hit driver at all", added Aphibarnrat. "Everyone is so nice, especially the people around the spectators, they are so nice".

Aphibarnrat's late decision to cancel a holiday with his wife and head to Perth now seems like the right call as he heads for short break with the trophy in his luggage before heading to America to take on the world's best.

"It's just been an awesome week", Aphibarnrat said in a European Tour press release. "I try to win every week".
