KHON KAEN, Thailand (AP) Arnond Vongvanij upstaged heavy favorites Thaworn Wiratchant and Mardan Mamat with a two-stroke victory in the King's Cup on Sunday to claim his first Asian Tour title.

The 23-year-old Thai, who qualified for the Asian Tour in January, shot a final round 64 including birdies on the 16th and 17th.

Arnond finished with an overall 22-under 266 at the Singha Park Kohn Kaen Golf Club. He said ``I putted well and hit well and had some luck.''

Singapore's Mamat (69) and Thailand's Thaworn (68) shared second place, 1 shot behind Arnond.
