KANCHANABURI, Thailand: Rising star Suradit Yongcharoenchai emerged from a mammoth seven-hole play-off victorious to capture the Thailand PGA SINGHA-SAT Kanchanaburi Championship in near darkness on Sunday.
The Nakorn Pathom native moved through the field with a birdie-ridden closing round of 63, reeling in overnight leader Panuphol Pittayarat – who let the title slip with a costly bogey at 18 en-route to a 67, for a 13-under par total.
With darkness closing in, the pair could not be separated for six holes, but when Panuphol missed the green at the seventh extra hole and was unable to get up and down, Suradit took full advantage, holing out for par to take a second Thailand PGA Tour title.
“I putted really well today,” said Suradit, who only dropped one shot in a stunning 63. “I was really surprised when Pro Coconut (Panuphol) dropped a shot at the last. But I stuck to my plan in the play-off and hopefully I can carry this form into my next event.
Thanpisit Omsin carded a fine 64 to finish in a tie for third on ten-under par alongside Tirawat Kaewsiribandit (66) and Danthai Boonma (68).
The Tour now takes a break until the Sing-SAT Nakhon Ratchasima Championship 2020 at Phan Arama Golf and Country Club, Nakhon Ratchasima from October 29-November 1.
