The 25-year-old Englishman started the final hole a shot behind Spain’s Sergio Garcia and South African George Coetzee who had set the clubhouse target at 17 under par.

Garcia shot a fourth-round 66 and Coetzee a 64.

Wood had begun the day with a three-shot lead but struggled after making a double bogey at the par-three third hole. His eagle putt from 10 feet at the last hole allowed him to complete a three-under-par 69.
