Kiradech Aphibarnrat was the last man to book his place in Sunday’s match-play finale after seeing off Anthony Quayle on the fourth play-off hole on day three of the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth.

With the top 24 players after 54 holes of stroke play qualifying for the match play, a play-off was required to decide who would take the final eight berths after nine players finished in a tie for 17th on five under par.

Andrea Pavan, Yikeun Chang, Callan O’Reilly, Poom Saksansin, Zander Lombard, Stephen Leaney and Satoshi Kodaira all carded pars at the first play-off hole, leaving Quayle and Aphibarnrat to head back to the 18th tee after they made bogeys.

Two good up-and-downs on the next two play-off holes kept Aphibarnrat in the contest and after home hope Quayle failed to make par at the fourth extra hole, the 28-year-old calmly tapped in from close range to clinch the final spot.

Thailand’s Prom Meesawat finished two shots clear at the top of the leaderboard after three rounds at Lake Karrinyup Country Club after signing for a 67 on day three.

Sean Crocker, Lucas Herbert and Thorbjorn Olesen were in a tie for second on 10 under par, with Englishman Sam Horsfield another two strokes back in joint-fifth.

Scotland’s Grant Forrest also made it through to the match-play phase after finishing in share of ninth place.

Lee Westwood missed out after posting a third-round 78 to slip to two under overall.
