Lyoness Open 2016

Round 4 - Wu Ashun secures second win

June 13, 2016

China's Wu Ashun came from a stroke behind to win the Lyoness Open on Sunday for his second career European Tour title.

Wu, who also won the China Open last year, had a 69 including seven birdies to finish with a 13-under 275. He was one stroke clear of first-day leader Adrian Otaegui of Spain with Richard McEvoy of England another stroke back in third.

Wu trailed Zander Lombard of South Africa going into the final round but picked up three shots on the first four holes. He later carded a double-bogey on the par-4 10th but held on for the victory as Lombard dropped to fifth with a 2-over 74.

Former champions Chris Wood of England and Joost Luiten of the Netherlands shared sixth at 5 under.

Round 3 - Zander Lombard takes over lead

June 12, 2016

South Africa's Zander Lombard squandered an early three-stroke lead due to a triple bogey but still led China's Wu Ashun by one after the third round of the Lyoness Open on Saturday.

Lombard had four birdies before needing seven shots following a mishit on the par-4 ninth. He carded a 68 to go 11-under for the tournament, while Wu had a 7-under 65.

Lombard is seeking his maiden European Tour title, five months after finishing runner-up to fellow South African Haydn Porteous at the Joburg Open.

Gregory Bourdy of France, who shared the overnight lead with Lombard, went 9-under to share third with Adrian Otaegui of Spain. Former champion Joost Luiten of the Netherlands was one stroke further back in fifth.

Round 2 - Zander Lombard & Gregory Bourdy share lead

June 11, 2016

Zander Lombard overcame two consecutive bogeys to card a 2-under 70 Friday and share the lead with Gregory Bourdy after the second day of the Lyoness Open.

Lombard and Bourdy are tied at 7-under 137, followed by Gary Stal at 136 and Borja Virto another stroke behind in fourth.

Bourdy led the event for three days last year before being overtaken by Chris Wood. The defending champion from England repeated his 71 from the opening round and was in 11th at 2-under heading into the weekend.

Overnight leader Adrian Otaegui dropped to fifth following a 76, which included a double-bogey on the par-4 11th.

Round 1 - Adrian Otaegui leads with record round

June 10, 2016

Spain's Adrian Otaegui claimed the lead after the first round of the Lyoness Open as the in-form Chris Wood suffered a disappointing start to the defence of his title in Austria.

Otaegui carded eight birdies in a flawless 64 at Diamond Country Club to equal the course record set in 2014 by American Daniel Im, one of the players with whom he finished joint first in the European Tour qualifying school last November.

At eight under par the 23-year-old, a protege of double Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal, held a two-shot lead over Sweden's Bjorn Akesson, with France's Gary Stal and South African Zander Lombard a shot further back on five under.

Wood, who came into the event on the back of his victory in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth a fortnight ago, started his round on the back nine and reached three under thanks to birdies on the 12th, 15th and second.

The world number 23 immediately bounced back from a bogey on the fifth with another birdie on the next, only to find water off the tee on the eighth and ninth and bogey both holes in a 71.

"Not quite the start I was hoping for but it was tricky," Wood said. "It was quite windy and chilly first thing and there's trouble round this course that's not too far off line, two or three yards off the greens and some hazards just off the fairways and I managed to find a couple of them towards the end.

"It's disappointing. Coming here as defending champion you want to put up a decent score on the first day to get yourself in contention."

Wood will fly straight from Austria to Pittsburgh for next week's US Open, but insisted he never thought of changing his schedule to prepare for an Oakmont course he has been told is "brutal".

"I always think if you win an event you should try and get back to defend," Wood added on Sky Sports. "Winning the BMW PGA Championship should not really change that at all.

"A few guys have said that to me how great it is to see me this week, which is nice and just proves I have made the right decision."

Otaegui, who has yet to record a top-10 finish this season, told European Tour Radio: "Of course I'm very pleased. I played well from the beginning until the end, didn't make too many mistakes. I missed a couple of greens but then I made good up and downs.

"The course is pretty hard and it's not easy to get the ball close to the pin so I'm pretty pleased with it.

"You never know when you're going to hit good form but it's always a good time to shoot a 64. I'm hoping now I can play four days in the same way so that's the main goal."

Akesson carded seven birdies and a solitary bogey on the 17th, his eighth hole of the day, to mark a welcome return to form.

"I have been struggling ever since a third place earlier in the year in South Africa but my game is on its way now and it feels really good to go out there and shoot a low score," said the 27-year-old, who has made just four cuts in 11 events since the Joburg Open.

Playing alongside Wood, home favourite and 2012 champion Bernd Wiesberger carded three birdies and one bogey in his 70, but the final member of the marquee group, Ryder Cup vice-captain Thomas Bjorn, retired with a back injury after playing 15 holes in three over.
