Sport in Brief: Wood sinks eagle in Qatar; Contador captures sixth stage; England whitewash Aussies
Sunday 27 January 2013
Chris Wood made an eagle at the 18th hole to claim his first European Tour win with victory in the Qatar Masters yesterday. The putt proved crucial as it meant the 25-year-old from Bristol overtook Sergio Garcia, of Spain, and George Coetzee, of South Africa, who both finished a shot back. The world No 142 hit a six-iron to within 12 feet and calmly sank the putt to complete a final round of 69. "Winning an event on the European Tour is not easy," said Wood. "It was a nice way to finish and it feels good to pick up the trophy. I have been waiting patiently and it is finally my turn."

Alberto Contador beat race leader Daniel Diaz to take the sixth stage of the Tour de San Luis yesterday. The Spaniard had just enough left to hold off Diaz and make it to the line two seconds ahead. Diaz remains in the overall lead, 33 seconds clear of Tejay van Garderen.
