Molinari wins The Open championship at Carnoustie

Molinari wins The Open championship at Carnoustie

"If someone was expecting a charge, they probably weren't expecting it from me", he said.

In my view, Europe should hope he isn't and America would be mad not to pick him.

"Serena and I are good friends", said the 42-year-old, whose last major triumph came back in 2008. Having started the year ranked 539th, the American has broken back into the top 50 this week for the first time since 2014.

"Maybe there wasn't quite as much drama at the end, but there were a lot of players close to the lead with a chance and I was very proud to handle myself the way I did and to come out on top". As the Americans faded in the wind at Carnoustie, European fans will have been buoyed by the performance on Molinari and Justin Rose who had made birdie on the 18th green on Friday night just to make the cut, before shooting 64, 69 at the weekend to finish in a tie for second place.

"I'm relearning. I won quite a few recently, but you still have to relearn to deal with it".

Still he was finding it hard to believe that he'd won, the new champion golfer had believed in himself after a superb run of form that saw him with two titles - including the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth - and have two runners-up spots in his last five events.

Molinari is up to sixth in the world rankings after lifting the Claret Jug, and Rocca would like to see him get even higher.

"Only one guy out of 156 is going to win, 155 other guys are going to leave a little disappointed".

"With this, and then bringing in the fresh legs on 60 minutes, we made a decision to play football and that changed the game". No team has won back-to-back Premier League championships since Manchester United in 2008 and 2009.


Asked if Molinari could win more majors, Bjorn added: "He certainly has that type of game where he can go out and challenge the best players in the world".

The latter secured Edoardo one of Colin Montgomerie's wild-cards on a team that also included Francesco for the Ryder Cup that year at Celtic Manor in Wales.

Woods held the lead after 60 holes at the 147th Open Championship.

"I just didn't make a putt today".

"I know that they know how much this championship means to me and how much it feels good to be back playing again".

But just when one of the greatest sporting comebacks of all time seemed on the cards, Woods failed to pull off a risky flop shot to get out of trouble on 11.

"I care about the people around me, the work that we put in".

'It's amusing when you look back, how Tiger has been involved in so numerous greatest moments for Italian golf, ' he said. I've had different parts of every single part of my game being at kind of a low point in my career, not all at the same time, but enough to where I haven't really been able to compete.
