Noren posted a final round of 65 to tie the scores on 17 under with Hend.
Noren was five under on the final day, and Hend shot four under to force a play-off. Noren putted superbly all weekend, and had seven birdie putts in his final round, with four in a row on the front nine.
They both finished on play 17 under, and then had a play off on the 18th.
Noren then sank a tricky long putt on the play-off hole, while Hend laid up short of the flag.
Here's the winning moment.
