Young Golfer from Thailand - Kiradech Aphibarnrat aka Arm

Kiradech Aphibarnat is an up and coming youngster from Thailand. They call him the Asian John Daly, not for his appetite but because of his hitting style. Kiradech has had a noteworthy amateur career. He won twice at the Junior World Championships, finished runner-up in the 2007 Southeast Asian Games and the same at the 2007 Putra Cup.

Kiradech, 21, turned professional in 2008. Before turning pro, Kiradech, a Buddhist, changed his name from Anujit Hirunratanakorn to Kiradech Aphibarnrat, though majority of people know him as Arm. He is currently ranked 149th in the world and first in the scoring average on the Asian Tour. He won the 2011 SAIL Open, an Asian Tour event earlier this year.
