Chris Wood played the par 5s in 3-over in a frustrating even-par 35-37=72 on day two of the Trophee Hassan II but still remains prominent.
Looking to build on his encouraging first-round 67, the Englishman started out with a double bogey-7 at the 10th. He recovered with a birdie at 12 and an eagle-3 at the 17th but his hopes of climbing back up the leaderboard were scuppered by a bogey at the par-5 5th. Still, at 5-under 139 Wood is currently tied fourth and only two shots behind Adrien Saddier, who is about to start his second round. If he can play the long holes better, Wood is very much in the title hunt. Mar 27 - 9:40 AM

Chris Wood finally put a score on the board by signing for a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in round one of the Trophee Hassan II.

It's been a struggle for the Englishman since he returned for a lengthy injury break and two starts this year have resulted in missed cuts. But he found his rhythm again at Golf du Palais Royal on Thursday with a bogey-free lap of the par 72. His 67 was the second best afternoon score in Morocco and he kept his card clean with 6-for-6 scrambling stats. He'll start the second round just two shots behind leader Adrien Saddier.

Chris Wood is 0-for-2 on the European Tour since his return to action from injury and will hope to cash his first cheque at the Trophée Hassan II.

The wrist injury that sidelined the tall Englishman for nearly fifth months may have cleared up but, understandably, he's lacked sharpness in his two starts so far. Wood shot 77-73 to miss the cut at the Africa Open and 71-73 at the Tshwane Open where he also failed to make the weekend. Gamers should probably keep a watching brief for now as, despite Golf du Palais Royal being a links course, Woods has only fared modestly here in the past. You'd expect it to be a good fit for a man who boasts two top fives in Open Championships but he's never bettered T44 in three visits.

Chris Wood ends a four-and-a-half-month absence by returning to East London for the Africa Open.

The Englishman has been sidelined since mid-October by a wrist injury so will be feeling his way back this week. Before his enforced break he'd ended 2014 with a pair of top 10s so could be challenging again soon. Whether an immediate trophy bid is likely is open to debate but he does have some good memories of this tournament having finished runner-up in 2012. Wood, who came 64th on last year's Race to Dubai, was also T6 at the 2014 Tshwane Open in his most recent start on South African soil.
Mar 4 - 7:54 AM

Chris Wood pured a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the 96th PGA Championship.

The 26-year-old from England was spot on at Valhalla today. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation en route to five birdies. He was perfect on all 17 tries inside 12 feet and complemented that consistency with a birdie from 12'7" at the par-4 fifth hole. His strokes gained-putting clip registered 2.235. Wood was the final of five golfers to conclude his round just one strokes off the pace of the overnight tri-leaders.

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.

Chris Wood makes his World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions debut at Sheshan International Golf Club 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.

Wood's final round was relatively tidy, with two bogeys and one birdie interrupting 15 pars. Considering this was his first trip to Firestone Country Club, a top-10 finish is an excellent showing. He tied for third in driving accuracy and shared seventh in GIR for the week, so the layout obviously fit his eye.

Chris Wood found himself in the final threesome with Tiger Woods and Keegan Bradley during the third round of the World golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and managed an even-par 34-36=70.

Wood opened with birdies on three and four before giving back a stroke at the par-4 fourth. He then rattled off 13 pars before a closing bogey at the par-4 18th. Given his thrust into the limelight, it will be widely considered a successful showing for the Englishman. He enters the final round at 6-under 204.

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 will take his first crack at Firestone CC in the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational this week.

Wood earned his spot in the field with a win at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters earlier this year. He enters off a T64 at Muirfield and also tied for 43rd at Doral in the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Chris Wood is in the field at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Wood is just two weeks removed from bowing out of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in the first round, and is now set to try and tame TPC Blue Monster at Doral. We don't have to look too far back in the profile to find some success. He won the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters in January of this year.

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.
