ATZENBRUGG---Chris Wood came
from five strokes behind to win the
Lyoness Open oyesterday for his sec-
ond European Tour title.
The Englishman had a bogey-free
round of 5-under 67 to finish on 15-
under 273, two strokes clear of 2009
champion Rafa Cabrera-Bello of Spain.
Overnight leader Gregory Bourdy of
France faltered, carding a 78 and drop-
ping to a tie for sixth place.
Cabrera-Bello, who was two strokes
off the lead going into the final round,
shot a 72.
English trio Robert Rock (66), Robert
Dinwiddie (68) and Matthew Fitzpatrick
(71) shared third, five strokes behind.
"I had in my mind today that,
regardless what (Bourdy and Cabrera-
Bello) did today, I needed a good score,"
Wood said. "That was all I could do."
Wood set the tone by picking up
three strokes on the first six holes, and
added two straight birdies on the back
nine. By that time, the Englishman had
already overtaken Bourdy and Cabr-
era-Bello. The Frenchman double-
bogeyed the par-3 second and had five
bogeys in total, while the Spaniard lost

"I was off injured, broke a bone in
my wrist, so I was quite a while away
from playing," he said. "I have been
working so hard, so I deserved a victory.
But you never know when they are
going to come so you take them when
