An overdue second win for the Bristol native in Austria

Chris Wood recorded a severely overdue second win at the Lyoness Open in Austria after by a comfortable two stroke margin over Spaniard Rafa Cabrera-Bello.

27-year old Wood, has had a horrible spell on the sidelines with injuries hampering his progress after making such an impressive start as an Amateur at the 2008 Open Championship.

How Chris Wood recorded an overdue European Tour second win

Wood’s flawless final round saw him reach the form that earned him accolades as one of the brightest talents in British golf, and was only his second European Tour win since winning the 2013 Qatar Masters.

“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 today.

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

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.”
