Molinari Romps Home In Classic British Open

Tiger Woods was leading The Open on the back nine on Sunday

Tiger Woods walks onto the 18th green during the final round for the 147th British Open in Carnoustie, Scotland on Sunday, July 22, 2018.

Woods stumbled with a double bogey on No. 11.

That vaulted McIlroy into a six-way tie for the lead and Rose joined the expanding group on six under with a tap-in birdie on 18, two days after he needed a birdie on the same hole just to make the cut. He dropped another shot on the next hole.

Number of bogeys Francesco Molinari made in his final 37 holes, almost unthinkable given the pitfalls that await during every trip 'round Carnoustie, among the hardest links courses in the world.

"But that was too close to affecting the game of play". Asked if he felt today's young stars would have to fight off Woods for a few years to come, McIlroy said, "Yeah".

Rocca said: "I was very emotional, maybe more emotional than him".

Francesco finished joint fourth when his sibling won the Scottish Open at Loch Lomond in 2010, the same year he landed the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.

The Northern Irishman eagled the 14th at Carnoustie to move into a share of the lead but he finished two shots behind victor Francesco Molinari. "The way Francesco played today was handsome", Woods said.

Here's some jackass yelling in the middle of Tiger's swing on the 18th tee at the Open

Francesco Molinari didn't flinch while playing with Woods, even when he took the lead.

Woods is now 20th on the American points list, and with only the top eight gaining automatic qualification, the 14-time major victor will have to make up a 2,000-odd points difference before the cut off date after the penultimate event, as the FedEx Cup comes to a close.

Schauffele got closest to Molinari in the end and did so by opting not to look at any leaderboards and shutting out everything around him. I mean, not the Tiger that, you know, Phil and Ernie and those guys had to deal with.

"If I win the Senior Open, I'll definitely be back for The Open again, wherever that is".

"It was great just to be a part of it and hear the roars", McIlroy added.

With a brilliant birdie at the last, 35-year-old Molinari's eight-under 72-hole total of 276 eclipsed Padraig Harrington's Carnoustie tournament record score from 2007 by a stroke and kept some of the sport's biggest names at bay. "This was a win for one of the hardest workers and good guys of the Tour, I always think it's great when you've got new guys winning majors". I have no regrets. I loved seeing him play well.

"So I can look at it - anyone can look at it however they want to, but I'm going to look at it as a positive moving forward, and try to learn how to handle the situations a little better next time".
