Molinari races to victory in National

July 01, 2018

Francesco Molinari is the first Italian player since 1947 to win a US PGA event. He finished with a 62 for a 21-under total and set new tournament records for 72 holes (259), 54 holes (197) and largest margin of victory (8).

"Amazing. I played great today. The start of the back nine was incredible," Molinari said. "I'm very proud of the way I played, some of the best golf I've ever played and I'll ever play in the future. It's hard to play better than this."

His final round included a stretch of eagle and four birdies between the 10th and 14th and was the lowest by a US PGA winner this season in spite of the heat.

"It was probably as hot as I've experienced in my career," Molinari said. "I'm even prouder of my mental toughness in those conditions."

Molinari decided to skip the HNA Open de France at Le Golf National, where the Ryder Cup will be played later this year, for a PGA start on a course that suited him.

"It was not easy to skip the French Open," Molinari said. "But I think I made the right decision."

The last Italian to win on Tour was Toney Penna at the 1947 Atlanta Open.

"This win feels special," Molinari said. "Hopefully there are more to come."

Ryan Armour came in second at 13-under, his second best Tour result afer his win at the 2017 Sanderson Farms Championship, and earned an exemption to the 147th Open.

Tournament host Tiger Woods came in T4 with a 66 for an 11-under, 269 total and tied Molinari for most birdies (21) this week on the way to his third top-five finish this season. He hit 14 of 18 greens in his final round.

"I'm glad I gave myself a chance," Woods said. "It was nice to make a couple birdies coming in. Evidentally I'd have had to shoot 24 on the back nine. What Francesco is doing out there is phenomenal."
