Scott Hend travels to France this week to make his debut at the Alstom Open de France.

The Aussie missed the cut at the BMW International Open last time but was T33 at the Nordea Masters before that. A tied second place at February's Thailand Classic and a T5 in the Mauritius Open last month are the main reasons for his 53rd place in the Race to Dubai. Hend is best known for his big hitting but driving distance has been a relatively unimportant stat at Le Golf National so it remains to be seen how well he'll take to the par 71.

Scott Hend sits at 28th in the Race to Dubai ahead of his first start in the Trophée Hassan II in Morocco.

This is the Aussie's first start anywhere since a missed cut in the Indian Open four weeks ago. That followed a second place in the Thailand Classic where he held the 54-hole lead before stalling on the final day. Hend is best known for his huge hitting although Driving Distance seems the least important weapon at the short Golf du Palais Royal judging by results there in the four years it's staged this event. Hend will try to buck that trend.

Overnight leader Scott Hend had to settle for tied second place in the True Thailand Classic at Black Mountain after a frustrating final round.

The Aussie could only return a closing even-par 35-37=72 on Sunday and his 15-under 273 was a shot too many as compatriot Andrew Dodt came through the field to win the title with a 67. Hend started brightly with par breakers at two of the first four holes but the birdies dried up after that. He found just one more but that was at 18 when he needed an eagle to force a playoff. Hend bogeyed the seventh and the 14th but the real damage was done with another at the short par-4 17th. He smashed a drive into greenside sand but thinned his bunker shot over the back and took three more to get down. He was 0-for-3 in sand saves so it was an area that cost him.

With a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his third round of the True Thailand Classic, Scott Hend has risen into the lead entering Sunday's finale.

Hend's red-hot run to conclude 2014 didn't extend in the new year, but he's 18 holes from reminding the world just how well he was playing not long ago. In today's trot around Black Mountain Golf Club in Hua Hin, the Aussie hit 12 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to a walk-off bogey at the par-5 18th. Prior to it, he converted an eagle (at the par-5 13th) and five birdies. He signed his card sitting at 15-under 201. Overnight leader Miguel Angel Jiménez went 5-for-5 in scrambling en route to a bogey-free, 3-under 35-34=69, but checked up one stroke in arrears of Hend. Alongside at 14-under 202 is Thailand's native son and its top-ranked golfer, Thongchai Jaidee, who spun a bogey-free, 5-under 34-33=67. Jaidee's countryman, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, is two swings adrift of Hend and alone in fourth place.

Scott Hend turned in a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to maintain his trophy bid in the True Thailand Classic at Black Mountain.

The Aussie has edged up to tied third place and, at 9-under 135, will head into the weekend just two behind leader Miguel Angel Jiménez. Hend, who has shone at this venue in Asian Tour events, again showed his liking for the par 72 by circling eight birdies. Five came in the opening seven holes as he burst out of the gates but his hopes of catching the leader were hurt by a double bogey-6 at the 10th and a bogey at 16. Hend won the co-sanctioned Hong Kong Open in October so has recent experience of a win at this level.

Scott Hend put past course knowledge to good use by carding a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the opening round of the inaugural True Thailand Classic.

The Aussie finished T3 and T7 in two of the three previous Asian Tour events held at Black Mountain and lived up to his reputation as a course horse in round one today. The six-time Asian Tour winner posted early birdies at 11 and 13 and closed his opening nine with two more. He climbed higher up the leaderboard with further par breakers at the fourth and the sixth before finishing off with a bogey. Hend split just five (of 14) fairways but found 16 greens in regulation.

Scott Hend's top 15 in Malaysia last week could prove timely as he prepares to contest the inaugural True Thailand Classic.

Hend will be returning to a venue, Black Mountain, where he's enjoyed past success. The course in Hin Hua has staged three previous Asian Tour events and the big-hitting Aussie was T3 in the 2010 Black Mountain Masters held there and T7 in the 2014 King’s Cup. After missed cuts in Qatar and Abu Dhabi, six-time Asian Tour winner Hend will return to the Thai track with confidence restored by a T14 in Malaysia where he shot 66-70 on the weekend.
Feb 9 - 3:52 PM

Scott Hend returns to the Emirates Golf Club to tee it up for a fourth time in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

The big-hitting Australian has made the top 30 in two of his three visits, finishing T14 on debut in 2008 and T29 last year. He missed the cut in his only other appearance in 2010. Hend has contested the first two legs of the 2015 Gulf Swing and took T31 in Abu Dhabi before crashing out at halfway in Qatar last week. He finally banked a first win on the European Tour when capturing the co-sanctioned Hong Kong Open last October. That his big breakthrough should come there was no surprise given that he's been an ever-present on the Asian Tour since 2006 after an unsuccessful stint on the PGA Tour.
Jan 27 - 3:39 PM

With a par on the only hole of sudden death, Australian Scott Hend walked away with the trophy at the Hong Kong Open, his first on the European Tour.

The tournament was co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour where Hend had five victories prior to this one. He closed out regulation at Hong Kong Golf Club in 13-under 267, matched only by Angelo Que of the Philippines, who bogeyed the 18th hole in the playoff. Both golfers began the final round chasing Marcus Fraser. The Aussie stumbled home in 2-over 72 to open the door; he settled for a share of fifth place. Before today's breakthrough, Hend's best finish in 104 starts on the European Tour was a T2 at the 2007 Volvo China Open.

Scott Hend is set for his first World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship at Trump National Doral later this week.

The Aussie is a past PGA TOUR member, and had the reputation for being long off the tee when he was a regular in the United State. It could be that his length will come in handy at a 7,481-yard Doral. His T7 at King's Cup Golf Hua Hin is his only top 10 in nine starts following his most recent win at the Venetian Macau Open.

For finishing second in the Order of Merit on the Asian Tour, Scott Hend is exempt into the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

The top two in earnings earned berths into the no-cut field at the overhauled and newly named Trump National Doral on March 6-9. Both Hend and money leader Kiradech Aphibarnrat will be making their first appearance in that tournament. Hend is a former PGA TOUR member (2004, 2005), but the long-hitting Aussie has found success overseas since. He won thrice this season and wrapped up the season with a T7 at today's King's Cup Golf Hua Hin.

Scott Hend crafted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Hend grabbed our attention in the opening round with a 69 but gave it all back and them some in the second round with a 74. So, he's at 7-under 209, good for very early possession of the 54-hole lead. Today's trot around Sheshan International featured six birdies.

Scott Hend opened the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with a 3-under-par 35-34=69, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

After a sparkling run of late, the Australian settled for a T40 at the CIMB Classic where he shot even-par 288. Today at Sheshan International, Hend offset a lone bogey at the par-3 17th hole with four birdies. Arguably best known as a long hitter, he played the quartet of par 5s in just 1-under with three pars.

Scott Hend enters the CIMB Classic after winning the Venetian Macau Open last week.

The Aussie is known as a lengthy player, and has enjoyed various degrees of success on Tour's across the globe. Perhaps he's the most excited of every player in the field that this event moved to Kualu Lumpur Golf & Country Club this season, since he finished last in the 48-man field at The MINES Resort & Golf Club and was one of only two players over par in the 2012 edition.
