Meet The Asian John Daly, Kiradech Aphibarnrat

Professional golfers, by and large, are cut from a similar cloth. Many golfers come from families who have a fair amount of money and access to nice courses on which the soon-to-be Tour stars grow up playing. However, when you come across a player who breaks that mold, you get some of the biggest characters on the professional circuit.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat fits into that latter description. The 27-year-old from Thailand is the 97th-ranked golfer in the world and he lives a unique lifestyle. 

Callaway and Vice teamed up to head to Aphibarnrat’s home to see what makes the big man tick, how he was brought up, who he shares his life with and much more. From the stories and photos shared in the video, as well as learning more about Kiradech himself, it’s easy to see how he got the nickname, “The Asian John Daly.”
