Chris Wood conjured up a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of The Open Championship to set an early clubhouse lead at 5-under 283.

Wood was brilliant at Royal Liverpool, circling seven birdies and tapping in 11 pars. He ran out of holes, as he secured birdies on each of his last four. He scored top-five finishes in each of his first two Opens, so his ability to play links golf was already established.

Chris Wood is set to give it a go at Royal Liverpool this week at the 143rd Open Championship.

Wood enters the week ranked 96th in the Official World Golf Rankings. After slipping out of the top 100 at the end of April, he has rallied for three top 10s in his last seven starts, internationally. The Englishman turned in back-to-back top 5s at the 2008 and 2009 Open Championships, but has fallen outside of the top 60 in his two follow-up appointments. The recent form and history of success on links-style courses make Wood a very intriguing sleeper this week.

The Englishman locked up his invitation with his win at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters earlier this year. His last top 25 came in the most recent WGC event, sharing seventh at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. If there's anything we know, it's that the stage won't be too big for him.

Chris Wood signed for a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and shares seventh place with Bill Haas at 5-under 275.

He tied for third in driving accuracy and shared seventh in GIR for the week, so the layout obviously fit his eye.

Chris Wood answered his opening 66 at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round.

Wood's aggregate of 6-under 134 is good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Keegan Bradley, but neither will sleep on the lead as Tiger Woods is wrapping up a monster Friday. Wood hit 14 greens at Firestone today and rolled in four birdies. The set included conversions of 18'8" and 13'2" at the first and 16th holes, respectively.

Chris Wood carded a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to finish one stroke off the early clubhouse lead.

The Englishman split 10 (of 14) fairways but landed only 10 greens in regulation at Firestone today. However, thanks to four par conversions from 10-12 feet, he avoid pitfalls at holes 13, 14, 18 and 9. It wasn't an entirely a blemish-free lap as he squared a bogey at the par-5 11th, but five birdies helped ease that stain. His set included rolls from 12'3" and 13'1" at Nos. 3 and 5, respectively. Overall, it was a terrific debut at this event for Wood.

Chris Wood secured his first European Tour victory at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

The lanky 25-year-old from England slept on a three-stroke lead last night. After opening with pars at 1 and 2, he double-bogeyed the par-3 third to swing the door open for challengers. George Coetzee and Sergio Garcia would capitalize, posting a 65 and 66, respectively, but Wood eventually recovered thanks to an eagle conversion from 10 feet at the par-5 18th hole. When it dropped, he clipped Coetzee and Garcia by one stroke with an aggregate of 18-under-par 67-70-64-69=270. "There’s an enormous weight lifted off my shoulders today," Wood said. "I feel like I can go on and win more. I knew it was going to be hard no matter how I played - winning on The European Tour is not easy. I've been knocking on the door in previous times and it's not happened. To get it today, to get my first win, it's such an honour. I'm so pleased." While his world ranking will skyrocket, the victory already exempts him into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in August.

Chris Wood carded a final round of 3-under-par 67 and finished in a tie with Lee Westwood for third place at the British Open.

It's not often that you see a player win the silver medal for the low amatuer and then the next year have a chance to win the gold medal, but Wood had the opportunity today. He has just birdied the par-5 17th hole and was a stroke off the lead, however his approach at the 18th went through the green. His recover shot left him an 18-foot putt to save par, but the putt just slid by the hole causing him to drop back to 1-under-par for the tournament and missing a playoff by a single stroke. Still, it was a great finish and the Top 4 result earns him an invitation to next year's Masters.

Less than one week following his T-5 at the British Open, Chris Wood has decided to turn professional.

The lanky Brit seemed resolute to retain his amateur status immediately following the tournament, suggesting he was hopeful to compete in the Walker Cup and the British and U.S. Amateurs, but was influenced to play for pay by three touring pros, including Darren Clarke. "If I was going to play amateur golf for another year, I'm not sure that I would be in a better position than I am now," said Wood. He leaves the amateur world ranked #2 behind Oklahoma State University's Rickie Fowler.
