August 2: Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand fought back from being three down to beat Michael Hoey to advance to the semi-final of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play on Saturday.
The 2013 Asian Tour number one recovered from a shaky start where he was trailing by three after four holes but he went on to win four of the last seven to beat Hoey 2 and 1.
The big-hitting Kiradech will now face home favourite Marc Warren.
ā€œI was hitting the ball well and have some confidence from that. Today I didn't start like first three days. Normally I would start up two or three after first five holes but today was 3-down after five in the quarter final and played very well to come back,ā€ said Kiradech.
ā€œI had to be patient and mentally strong today. It's going to be tough but getting the last was my goal, so now I just try to enjoy. I play with the local boy tomorrow, Marc Warren, so will be a tough round. But if I hit the ball like I did the first few rounds, it's going to be tough for him to beat me.ā€
Ends.
