Highlights: Australia’s Scott Hend wins Hong Kong Open

Scott Hend claimed his maiden European Tour title at the Hong Kong Open, after overcoming Angelo Que of the Philippines at the first hole of a play-off


Hend admitted it wasn’t the way he’d chose to win but is not complaining.

“It was a bit surreal because obviously I walked straight off the golf course after making a fantastic up‑and‑down for par to get to the playoff,” he said. 

“It’s great to win but I feel a little bit of sadness for Angelo making a bogey the way he did to lose the hole. 

“Obviously we all want to win the playoff but it would have been nice to make a birdie and beat your opponent instead of your opponent making an uncalculated mistake.  But I’ll take the trophy.  I’ll take the title.”
