Bristol's Chris Wood aiming to break into golf's top-50
BRISTOL’S Chris Wood takes on one of the strongest Asia-Pacific fields assembled today when he defends his title at OneAsia’s U.S. $1 million Thailand Open
Last year’s tournament was Wood’s first professional victory, but less than six months later he drew on that experience to claim the Qatar Masters on the European Tour, and is now knocking on the door of the world’s top 50 with all the privileges that affords.
Wood, jet-lagged after flying from Florida where he was competing in the WGC – Cadillac Championship won by Tiger Woods at the weekend, said: “The confidence I took from winning in Thailand last year was massive.
“I think it proved very important for me because since I won here, I won my first tournament on the European Tour as well.

“I think all my experience from winning here last year, all the feelings you get trying to win a tournament, I used in the next. It was a massive learning step for me.”
Confidence boosted, Wood is now focused on improving his place in golf’s pecking order, and with 18 world ranking points on offer to the winner at Thana City Golf & Sports Club this week, a victory will likely push him into the top 50.
Wood currently ranked 64th added: “Well it’s all about world ranking points now really.
“I’m starting to get into the big events now, and for professional golfers that is where you want to be – getting into all the Majors. Now I am that close, I want to keep pushing forward.”
