KLM Open: China’s Wu Ashun wins by one shot from England’s Chris Wood


Wu Ashun

China’s Wu Ashun claimed his third European Tour title at the KLM Open as England’s Chris Wood three-putted the final green to finish second by a shot.

Wu birdied the last for a final round of four-under 67 to finish at 16 under at The Dutch in Spijk.

Overnight leader Wood could only par the last for a two-under 69 to earn a third runner-up finish of the season.

Belgium’s Thomas Detry and Japan’s Hideto Tanihara finished tied for third in the Netherlands.

“Fantastic, an unbelievable week,” world number 344 Wu told Sky Sports. “There was a lot of good golf played here, I like this golf course.”

Wood held a one-shot lead heading into the final round, but the 30-year-old paid the price for a double-bogey six at the 12th hole to miss out on a fourth European Tour title.

Ireland’s Padraig Harrington added to a second-placed finish at the Czech Masters at the end of August with fifth place at 13 under after a final-round 68.
