Wood, one of the last players in the field for this year's U.S. Open, was born in Bristol, England. He stood right at No. 60 in the Official World Golf Rankings to earn his start in Erin Hills as any player in the top 60 in the OWGR as of June 12 earned an exemption. He attended Golden Valley Primary School in Nailsea between the ages of 4 and 11, before leaving to join Backwell School. Wood began playing golf at a young age. He excelled in soccer, with aspirations to play for Bristol City Football Club, but following a serious knee injury, he devoted himself to golf. Became a member at the Long Ashton Golf Club near Bristol at age 9 and obtained a single-digit handicap by age 12. Wood was the English Amateur Order of Merit winner in 2007 and 2008. In May 2008, Wood won the Welsh Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship at Conwy. He finished with a score of 289 (74-75-69-71) to win the title by six shots.
Made his European Tour breakthrough in spectacular style at the 2013 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Needing to birdie the par-5 18th on the final day to join Sergio Garcia and George Coetzee in a playoff, the Englishman hit his second shot to 12 feet and holed the eagle putt for a thrilling win. Claimed his second title in June 2015 at the Lyoness Open, where a final-round five-under-par 67 gave him a two-shot win. It was the perfect comeback considering he had been out of action for five months the previous winter with a broken hand, sustained while playing tennis.
Wood is fulfilling the potential he showed at the 139th British Open in 2008. He finished T-5th at Royal Birkdale while still an amateur, winning the Silver Medal, and a year later, after turning professional, took a share of 3rd place at Turnberry, one shot out of the playoff. Received the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year award in 2009, having earned his playing rights by finishing 5th at the Qualifying School Final Stage in late 2008. Had several near-misses before winning in 2013, including a 2nd-place result at the 2012 Sicilian Open and losing a playoff to Louis Oosthuizen at the 2011 Africa Open. At 6-feet, 5-inches, Wood matches Robert Karlsson as the tallest player on the European Tour.
2013 Notes: Played in 22 events, making the cut in 17 of them. Won the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Finished 29th in the Race to Dubai with Euro998,281.
2014 Notes: Posted his best finish, 5th, at the Championship at Laguna National. The next week, finished T-7th at the Open de Espana and, five weeks later, finished T-8th at the Irish Open. In 24 starts, was in the money 16 times. Finished 64th in the Race to Dubai. In October, he slipped while playing tennis and broke a bone in his hand that took four months to heal.
2015 Notes: Finished T-3rd at the Trophee Hassan II, then 4th at the BMW PGA Championship. Shot a final-round 67 to win the Lyoness Open by two shots over Rafael Cabrera-Bello. At the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play, Wood lost to David Howell 5 and 4 in the quarterfinal to finish T-5th. Produced a streak of four top-10s (T-4th at the Alfred Dunhill Links, T-9th at the British Masters, 2nd at the Portugal Masters and 5th at the Turkish Airlines Open). Finished the year 17th in the Race to Dubai series.
2016 Notes: Started the year with a 3rd-place finish at the Nedbank Golf Challenge. Had a T-8th result at the Dubai Desert Classic. Landed the biggest title of his career at the BMW PGA Championship, where a three-under-par 69 in the final round gave him a one-shot win over Rikard Karlberg in 2nd place and Danny Willett in 3rd. The year before, he had finished 4th at Wentworth Club, shortly before winning his second European Tour event, the Lyoness Open. In his next start, he finished T-6th at the Lyoness Open. Wood withdrew from the Scottish Open and withdrew after 12 holes at the Open Championship. Speculation was that he had a neck injury, but it was better by the time of the PGA Championship, where he missed the cut. Made his first start at the Ryder Cup, where he went 1-1 in his two matches in the European team's 17-11 loss to the United States at Hazeltine. Played the fall events on the European Tour and for the year, competed in 24 events with four top-10s, finishing 11th in the Race to Dubai.
2017 Notes: Played in 21 events on the European Tour making 17 cuts. Was in the top-ten, 3 times and finished 51st in the Race to Dubai. Played a limited schedule in the first part of the year, with a best finish of T-11th at the Qatar Masters. Has played well of late, in his last three starts was T-4th at the Volvo China Open, T-49th at the BMW PGA Championship and T-2nd at the Nordea Masters just a shot back of winner Renato Paratore. All of this is important since he is 60th in the Official World Golf Rankings and that is the number he needed to be at to get one of the last exemptions into the U.S. Open. Played in all 4 majors, T-28th at the Masters, he missed the cut at the U.S. Open but finished T-14th at the Open Championship and T-33rd at the PGA Championship.
2018 Notes: Played in 22 European Tour events making 14 cuts with three top-ten finishes. All three of his top-tens were runner-up finishes. First was T-2nd at the NBO Oman Open 2 shots back of winner Joost Luiten. Was a runner-up again, this time at the French Open he was a shot back of winner Alex Noren. Was 2nd at the KLM Open a shot back of winner Ashun Wu. Finished the year 32nd in the Race to Dubai.
2019 Notes: Ended 2018 with a neck injury which started at the WGC-HSBC Champions and never got better. Took time off after the DP World Tour Championship but it seems to hamper him in 2019, still looking to make his first check of the year. Also, his second child was born at the beginning of the year.
