Golf roundup: Chris Wood wins Qatar Masters

Chris Wood eagled the 18th hole to win the Qatar Masters in Doha for his first European Tour victory Saturday, overtaking Sergio Garcia and George Coetzee, who both finished a shot back.

The 142d-ranked Englishman knocked a 6-iron from 200 yards to within 12 feet of the hole on 18. Wood calmly sank the putt to finish the final round at 3-under 69 for an overall 18-under 270. Garcia (66) and Coetzee (65) had looked set for at least a two-man playoff after both birdied the last hole.
