KUALA LUMPUR : Asian Tour legend Thongchai Jaidee is aiming to launch a late season charge for an unprecedented fourth Order of Merit crown but admits he will still be a happy man if compatriot Kiradech Aphibarnrat beats him to the top honour. 

The 43-year-old Thai moved up one position to fourth on the latest rankings after he finished equal ninth at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland on Sunday and received US$58,805 in prize money pushing his season tally to US$238,391.

Money leader Kiradech, winner of the Malaysian Open in March, finished 44th to take his season earnings to $679,999 as he stays well ahead of the chasing pack.
