Atzenbrugg - England's Chris Wood claimed his second European Tour title on Sunday with a two-shot triumph at the Austrian Open at the Diamond Country Club.

Wood started the final round five shots off the lead which had been held by France's Gregory Bourdy since Thursday.

But a final round of a five-under 67 gave him his first title since the 2013 Qatar Masters.

Wood finished on 15 under with Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello two shots back after a level-par 72 while Bourdy was tied for sixth after a disastrous final round of 78 left him six behind Wood.

Bourdy had led by two overnight but imploded with a double bogey and five bogeys.
