What happened at the KLM Open?

Ashun Wu won his third European Tour title at the KLM Open – making him the most successful Chinese player in European Tour history.

Overnight leader Chris Wood, in that position for the fifth time in his career, bogeyed his opening hole to fall into a three-way tie for the lead.

But making the turn in 34, it looked like he was in cruise control after back-to-back birdies on the 10th and 11th. His lead, though, slipped back to one after a double on the 12th.

Wu made his charge and birdied three of the final five holes. A fantastic 240-yard hybrid over water set him up with an eagle chance on the last.

From 10ft it was a no-nonsense two-putt which saw the 33-year-old card a four-under 67, setting the clubhouse lead at 16-under.

Wood, who has admitted to struggling off the tee all season, found the fairway on 18 but tugged his approach shot to the left side of the green, leaving him a mammoth eagle attempt.

The Englishman, in search of his fourth European Tour triumph, was fuelled by adrenalin and raced the putt by – leaving him with a nervy 10ft birdie putt to force a playoff.

It missed. He three-putted for a par and a round of 69, giving him his third runner-up finish of the season. All the glory at The Dutch was Wu’s.
