Wood claims first win with fantastic finish

Wood claims first win with fantastic finish

Englishman Chris Wood produced a sensational eagle at the final hole to win his maiden European Tour title by one shot at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

Needing a birdie at the par-five 18th to join a play-off with South African George Coetzee and Spaniard Sergio Garcia, who had both finished on 17 under par, Wood went one better to claim the Mother of Pearl trophy, sinking a ten foot putt after a magnificent six iron approach from 202 yards.

Donaldson on a high in Abu Dhabi


He might have had to wait 12 years for his first European Tour victory in last June’s Irish Open but for Jamie Donaldson the wait for his second was much shorter as he grabbed a dramatic victory in the  Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

The 37 year old Welshman started the final day at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club two shots behind Englishman Justin Rose but overhauled the World Number Five with a final round 68 for a 14 under par total of 274, even affording the luxury of a dropped shot at the last to win by a shot.
