Chris Wood closes on elusive win
Friday 25 January 2013
Britain's Chris Wood will take a three-shot lead into the final round of the Qatar Masters hoping to end an elusive five-year search for his first win on the European Tour.
The 25-year-old Englishman was two shots off the lead at the start of the day but worked his way to the top of the leaderboard with five birdies in his first eight holes and an eagle at the par-five 10th in a round of 64.
For most of the third round yesterday his nearest challenger was Spain's Sergio Garcia but he dropped four shots back after finishing his 70 with a bogey. In a three-way tie for second place are New Zealander Michael Campbell, another Englishman, Simon Khan, and Sweden's Alexander Noren.
