Chris Wood doesn’t have a sterling track record at Crans-sur-Sierre, but he did tie for 49th last year and owns two other career top-35s.
The Englishman will be plenty rested, having taken three weeks off since his T33 at the PGA Championship. It appears Wood has his wrist injury issues in the past, but this can’t hurt.
When he’s been healthy, Wood has posted some solid results this year. He owns a T2 at the Nordea Masters and a T4 at the Volvo China Open. He would have loved to back up his 2016 BMW PGA Championship win with another victory this year, but 12 made cuts out of 16 and reasonable position in the Race to Dubai are nothing to gripe about.
Wood’s had his lowest greens in regulation mark (63.06) in the last seven years. Part of that was injury as he is traditionally among the European Tour leaders hovering in the high 60s or low 70s. If Wood can dial in like he’s known to do, I like him to have a good week.
