Australian big hitter Scott Hend overcame a two-shot deficit to snatch victory in the Queen's Cup on Thailand's Koh Samui island on Sunday as overnight leader Prom Meesawat stumbled.

The 42-year-old finished the day with a four-under-par 67, one shot ahead of runner-up and local talent Gunn Charoenkul in the $300,000 competition.

It was Hend's second title of the season and his ninth ­career victory on the Asian Tour.

Sunday's win might push Hend closer to qualification for the Olympic Games in Rio, where golf will return for the first time after 1904.
