Ruffels Wins Thai Junior Championship

Victorian and new National Squad member Ryan Ruffels has won at the SINGHA Thailand Junior World Championships at Royal Hua Hin Golf Course.

Ruffels finished with a final round 70 after opening rounds of 73-65-74 to be at 6-under par, tied with Suradit Yongcharoenchai. The pair were 12 strokes clear of their nearest rival in third place.

The pair headed into a play-off for the title.

"The guy in my group shot 65 so we went into a playoff," Ruffels said.

"I had a 2 shot lead playing last hole and he made birdie and I made bogey. We squared the first 5 holes of the playoff. I then birdied the sixth playoff hole to win."

"There were so many people watching. Like 1000 people. It was so much fun," Ruffels added.
