Chris Wood shone on the final day of the 2015 Lyoness Open, to win his second European Tour title. His impressive final round 67 was enough to see him surpass the overnight leader Gregroy Bourdy, and second placed Rafa Cabrera-Bello. Bourdy had been in great form all week, but a final round of 6-over-par ruined his chances of taking the title in Austria.

Chris Wood has had his struggles with injury in the past 12 months, having had a five month lay-off due to a broken bone in his hand, but he showed great form once again to take the title on Sunday. Wood had been in strong form all week, but a couple of dropped shots earlier in the week had seen him a few back. With no bogies on the final day however, Wood was able to make his charge to the top of the leaderboard.

Rafa Cabrera-Bello had kept the pressure on Bourdy all week, and was keen to do the same with Wood, but three consecutive bogies at 9, 10 and 11 made it hard for the Spaniard to recover. He did fight back well with birdies at 14 and 15, but ended the week two shy of woods fifteen under par  winning total.

Robert Rock also showed glimmers of his best form, by closing the week out with a fantastic 6-under par to join fellow countrymen Matthew Fitzpatrick and Robert Dinwiddie. It is Rocks 3rd top10 of the year, and one he will certainly be pleased with.
