China’s Wu Ashun claimed his third European Tour title at the KLM Open as England’s Chris Wood three-putted the final green to finish second by a shot.

Wu birdied the last for a final round of four-under 67 to finish at 16 under overall at The Dutch in Spijk.

Overnight leader Wood could only par the last for a two-under 69 to earn a third runner-up finish of the season.

Belgium’s Thomas Detry and Japan’s Hideto Tanihara finished tied for third in the Netherlands.

“Fantastic, an unbelievable week. There was a lot of good golf played here, I like this golf course,” world number 344 Wu told Sky Sports.

Wood held a one-shot lead heading into the final round, but the 30-year-old paid the price for a double-bogey six at the 12th hole to miss out on a fourth European Tour title.

Ireland’s Padraig Harrington added to a second-placed finish at the Czech Masters at the end of August with fifth place at 13 under after a final-round 68.
