Aberdeen: Thailand`s Kiradech Aphibarnrat won his second European Tour title of the year on Sunday when he defeated Robert Karlsson on the final hole to clinch the Paul Lawrie Matchplay.

The 26-year-old Thai, already a two-time tour winner after capturing the 2013 Malaysia Open and this year`s Shenzhen International, was three up with four holes to play.

However, the Swede hit back on the 15th, 16th and 17th to set-up a dramatic last hole duel.

Kiradech held his nerve on the 18th where he putted from four feet just after Karlsson had dragged his birdie attempt wide.
