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.
“I 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,” said Kiradech.
“I 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.”
Ends.
