Kiradech Aphibarnrat hoping to ‘kick some ass’ in the Tour Finals


Kiradech Aphibarnrat is looking to pick up his PGA Tour card through the 2016 Tour Finals, the four-event series which starts this week with the DAP Championship at Canterbury Golf Club in Cleveland.

Aphibarnrat (or, as fans call him in the U.S., The Barnrat) is one of seven PGA Tour non-members who earned enough hypothetical FedEx Cup points to fall short of membership for next season but in the top 200 in FedEx Cup points, earning a berth into the Tour Finals. If he is one of the top 25 money earners at the end of the series, he'll earn his PGA Tour card for next season.

So, he needs to get off to a good start this week. And he sounds poised to do that.

"It might not be easy -- a lot of top players are here this week," Aphibarnrat told the Tour staff, "but I'll try my best to kick some ass."

How can you not love this guy? The multi-time European Tour winner would be a great addition to the PGA Tour.
