CHIANGMAI, Thailand -- Australian Scott Hend won the inaugural Chiangmai Golf Classic after a final-round 64 to beat South African Bryce Easton by three strokes at the Alpine Golf Resort on Sunday.

Hend started the round six shots off the lead. But he had eight birdies, an eagle on the fourth hole and two bogeys for a 20-under 268 to earn his third Asian Tour victory. He also won the 2008 Indonesian President Invitational and 2012 Singapore Classic.

Ernie Els of South Africa and Y.E. Yang of South Korea faltered in the final round, shooting 70 and 73, respectively. Els finished tied for 14th, with Yang a shot behind tied in 20th place.
