With the 2016 Race to Dubai now in the record books, Australia's two most successful campaigners for the season can now turn their attention to kicking off 2017 in style at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.
Hend and Fraser not only represented Australia at golf's historic return to the Olympics in August but were the only two Down Under campaigners to qualify all the way to the Race to Dubai finale in Dubai at the weekend.
The DP World Tour Championship, the last to be staged after the European Tour announced the scrapping of the Finals Series for 2017, is reserved for only the top-60 in the points table, testament to the play of both Fraser and Hend throughout the year.
While neither had their best week in Dubai both now have a week off to recharge the batteries before getting 2017 underway on the Gold Coast.
Hend was the pick of the pair at the weekend posting rounds of 72-73-69-70 to reach 4-under for the tournament and T40.
Fraser saved his best till last signing for a final round 67 to go with scores of 69-74-78 to be even par and T52.
Both Hend and Fraser posted victories on the European Tour this year, Fraser winning for the first time in six years at February's Maybank Championship while Hend was victorious a month later in Thailand.
It was Fraser's third career European Tour title and only top-10 for the year in a regular Tour event although he did finish T5 at the Olympics in Rio.
The True Thailand Classic was Hend's second Tour win to go with the Hong Kong Open of 2014.
Hend also posted a ninth career victory on the Asian Tour when he captured the Queen's Cup in June.
