Golf: Kiradech stars at Myanmar Open

Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat was on course to win a second Asian Tour title after shooting a five-under-par 67 for a two-shot lead in the halfway stage of the Zaykabar Myanmar Open Friday. The co-overnight leader had problems with his putting but scrambled to a 13-under-par 131 total at the $300,000 event, the curtain-raiser for the 10th Asian Tour season celebrations. Thailand's Thanyakon Khrongpha and three-time Asian Tour winner Chawalit Plaphol, who shot a 67 and 66 respectively, were two shots behind on 133.

Golf: Thais on top at Myanmar Open

Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat bolstered his hopes of erasing last year's play-off defeat at the Zaykabar Myanmar Open Thursday when he tied for the opening-round lead with compatriot Chapchai Nirat. The pair, who finished on eight-under-par 64, are one shot ahead of fellow countryman Prom Meesawat, who is seeking a long-awaited second Asian Tour victory, and Joonas Granberg of Finland.
