HUA HIN, Thailand (AP) Scott Hend of Australia shot a 70 to retain the lead after the third round of the Thailand Classic on the par-72 Black Mountain Golf Course.

The 43-year-old Hend produced five birdies for a three day total of 14 under-par 202 to take a two-shot advantage Saturday over Peter Uihlein of the United States.

''I knew it was going to be a tough day, very windy so I'm very pleased,'' said Hend, in search of his eight Asian Tour title.

Uihlein, the first-round leader, shot four birdies for a 69 and 12-under-par 204.

Belgium's Thomas Pieters scored the lowest round, a bogey-free 66 for a three-day total of 205 to share third place with Sweden's Pelle Edberg.
