Chris Wood shoots 65 to take 1-shot lead at KLM Open


THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) – Chris Wood birdied the 18th hole to card his second 65 of the KLM Open on Saturday and take a one-shot lead into the closing round.

The English golfer got off to a sluggish start with a bogey on the par-4 2nd at The Dutch in Spijk, and reached the turn 1 under for the day before reeling off five birdies on the back nine to reach 13 under for the tournament.

Hideto Tanihara of Japan matched the lowest round of the European Tour event with an 8-under 63 to join overnight leader Ashun Wu and Jonathan Thomson in a three-way tie for second at 12 under.

After opening rounds of 64 and 66, Wu could manage only a level-par 71 as he slipped off the top of the leaderboard.
