Wentworth. England’s Chris Wood kept his haughtiness when
a vigour was during a many heated to land his biggest feat as a
veteran during a BMW PGA Championship during Wentworth. Wood had a
final spin of 69 for a nine-under-par sum of 279 and feat by one
cadence over Sweden’s Rikard Karlberg, who had a best of a day 65
that enclosed a hole in one during a 2nd, and dual over Danny Willett,
a Masters champion. “I’ve always wanted to win a BMW contest and
now I’ve finished it,” a gay Wood said. “BMW always put on great
events for us and this was one of them.”

Dr Ian Robertson, Member of a Board of Management of BMW AG, Sales
and Marketing BMW, said: “Our congratulations go really strongly to our
new BMW PGA champion, Chris Wood. we had a pleasure of giving Chris
a hole in one esteem of a BMW i8 final year, so we consider there is a
propitious strain in there for BMW tournaments. Long might it continue.

“It is a honour and a payoff to be a pretension unite for the
twelfth year of this flagship contest and BMW will continue to
support a championship. As we pierce brazen towards 2017 it will get
improved and better.”

The 28-year-old Wood – during dual metres, one of a tallest players on
a European Tour – threw down a gauntlet from a off on a warm,
sun-kissed day during Wentworth. He started his spin 3 strokes behind
Scott Hend, a overnight leader, though led a margin by 3 after a
overwhelming record-equalling external 9 of 29 on a West Course. It
was done adult of 4 birdies, an eagle, and 4 pars.

At a turn, Wood went from hunter to wanted as his rivals attempted
to follow him down. It was by no means plain sailing for a champion.
After dropping shots during 4 of a subsequent 8 holes, and picking adult a
unique birdie during a 11th, he arrived during a par-five 18th wanting a
standard to pledge victory. He played safe, wrapped adult his par, and
strolled divided with a initial esteem of €833,330, his many remunerative win
as a professional.

This was Wood’s third feat on a European Tour. It warranted him
personification rights until 2021, a place in a Open Championship for the
subsequent 3 years, and probably hermetic his place in a Europe team
for this year’s Ryder Cup compare in a United States, for that BMW
are central partners.

Willett, a pre-tournament favourite, found it formidable to score
good over a weekend though still managed to finish third after a final
spin of 71. The universe No9 felt this was a championship he let get
away, so will be dynamic to make adult for his beating in
perfume subsequent month, when he will try to supplement a second BMW
International Open climax to a one he scooped in 2012. It will not be
easy: among those severe him will be Henrik Stenson and Sergio García.

All a players in a margin were casting selfish glances towards
a pretentious BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition adult for grabs for a hole in
one during a par-three 14th, though it was England’s James Morrison who had
a impassioned good happening to expostulate divided with a €170,000 hybrid supercar.

The Englishman was not in a best of moods when he arrived during the
hole, after dropping dual shots during a 13th, though his support of mind was
shortly to change over recognition. And no wonder.

After personification a five-iron in wily breeze to an ascending pin position
170 metres away, Morrison during initial suspicion he had strike a turn too
far. But when a cheers from a fans surrounding a immature signalled
a good news, his burst for fun was something to behold. His turn had
landed on a green, bounced twice and dived into a hole. “It’s
crazy. we went from creation double-bogey to attack a best shot I’ve
strike all week,” he said. “It was a good feeling when it went in.”

Some players go their whole career though alighting a hole-in-one
esteem though this was Morrison’s second in 4 years, his i8 being added
to a BMW 6-series Gran Coupe he won during a 2012 Irish Open. In the
second spin Scotland’s Scott Jamieson won a BMW M2 for an ace during a 10th.
