Wood Wins BMW PGA At Wentworth
 
Chris Wood won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth today, but his victory was not without it trials and tribulations. Wood, who made 5 birdies in his first 11 holes, went out in 29, and at that time was 4 shots clear of Rikard Karlberg who shot a 65 that included 7 birdies and a hole in one at the 2nd to finish at -8 and lead the field.
Wood hit a wayward tee shot on 10, made bogey and dropped his first shot of the day, but bounced straight back with a birdie on 11 after hitting his approach to 2 feet, hit another bad tee shot on 12 and bogeyed 3 of the last 5 holes to finish with 69 and -9 for the four rounds.
This was his third European Tour title, and he said: “It’s huge, because my friends and family are here. It’s amazing. To win in front of them was unreal.”
Masters winner Danny Willett, shot a closing 71 that included 3 birdies and an eagle to finish third on -7.
In what were tough conditions today, many players found themselves in contention only to fall off the pace and drop back into the field.
Scott Hend, the overnight leader, double bogeyed the first hole and went out in 41, and came back in 37 to shoot 78 and finish at -3, tied 15th.
Martin Kaymer eagled the fourth to get into contention only to slip out of the frame after a double bogey two holes later following a poor drive, finishing with a 73 and an overall score of -5 to be tied in 7th place.
Tyrrell Hatton, who was one behind overnight and playing with Hend in the final group, had 5 bogeys and 2 birdies from 7 through 13 and made par on every other hole to finish with 75, and an overall score of -5 and be tied 7th.
Bernd Wiesberger had a solid round of 70 that included 3 birdies to finish at -3 and be tied 15th overall.
Another great 72 holes of fantastic golf with a worthy winner in Chris Wood.
