Chris Wood shines at Diamond Country Club

Powered by National Club Golfer


Chris Wood overturned a five shot deficit to take the Lyoness Open title by two shots over Spaniard Rafa Cabrera-Bello.

The 27-year old's bogey free round saw him finish 15-under for the tournament and is his second win on the European Tour.

In testing conditions Wood produced some fine golf to catch overnight leader Gregory Bourdy and card a five-under 67 in Austria.

"It's been a long time since Qatar and since I had my hands on a trophy," said the Bristol native. "After a long tough winter injured you do wonder if it's going to happen again.

"It's a big relief.

“I injured my wrist playing tennis last October and had to rest for five months.

"I came back in March and finished third in Morocco which I thought would give me a lot of confidence but then I didn’t get the results after that and played quite poorly for a few weeks.

"But the last month I have felt I was playing well enough to win so it has been coming."

When asked if this more difficult than his first win, Wood said: "No, I'd say the opposite.

"I was leading by a couple going into the last day there, it's always hard going to sleep on a lead.

"And you have a lot of things going through your mind.

"Today I was five behind going into the last day and I just knew I had to -- I had a goal of breaking 68 today and I've managed to do that.

"I thought it would be close, depending on what Greg [Bourdy] did obviously.”
