Phelan 3rd, Hend wins in Hong Kong
19 Oct 2014 13:01
Waterford's Kevin Phelan bagged an impressive third place finish as Australian Scott Hend edged Angelo Que in a play-off to clinch his maiden European Tour title at the Hong Kong Open.
-
Phelan shot a final round of 66 to end up on 11 under par, two behind Hend and Que, and take a €64,546 prize.
-
A par on the first extra hole was enough to steer 41-year-old Hend past Que, who missed the green on the 18th and then over-hit his chip.
-
Que's fourth-round 66 forced the play-off after an intense back-nine battle, which ended with his birdie on the 18th tying things up with Hend at 13 under par.
-
But the 35-year-old will be left lamenting the fact that his three bogeys on the day - to Hend's two - and a costly second-round 69 ultimately cost him victory.
-
Aged 41, Hend is the oldest first-time European Tour title winner since Cesar Monasterio, who was 42 when he won the 2006 As St Omer Open.
