England's Chris Wood plays a shot during the third round of the Qatar Masters.

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

The 142nd-ranked Englishman had an approach shot that rolled within 12 feet of the 18th . He sank it to finish the final round at 3-under 69 and an overall 18-under 270. Garcia and Coetzee looked set for a playoff after both birdied the last hole.

Wood came into the final day with a comfortable three-shot lead. But he missed a birdie putt on No. 2 and then double-bogeyed the par-3 third.
