HUA HIN, Thailand — Australian Andre Dodt won his second European Tour title by beating countryman Scott Hend and local favorite Thongchai Jaidee by one shot at the Black Mountain Golf Club on Sunday.

With overnight leader Hend, who started the round with a one-stroke lead, and Thongchai struggling on the greens, Dodt produced a bogey-free 67 to seal the victory with a 16-under-par 272.

It was the 29-year-old's second European Tour win after he won in Great Noida, India five years ago.

"There are no thoughts at the moment. I'm speechless," Dodt said. "I played well. I got off to a good start today, hung in there during the middle, tried to make pars on the tougher holes."

Six-time European Tour winner Thongchai, with four birdies against a bogey and a double bogey, settled for a final-round 71 and second with Hend, whose final round included three birdies and three bogeys for a 72.

Canadian Richard T. Lee finished tied after a bogey-free final-round 66 for a 274, along with Kiradech Aphibarnrat (70) and American Jason Knutzon (67).
