Molinari plots course through the mayhem to win Open

	Francesco Molinari sinks his birdie putt on the 18th to win the Open Championship at Carnoustie

He was a forgotten figure when he teed off in the final round of the British Open, mainly because he was playing with Tiger Woods, and because of the star power around him. Woods has joked in the past that they only know him as a YouTube sensation.

The 148th Open Championship will take place at Royal Portrush in 2019, marking the first time The Open has returned to Northern Ireland in nearly 70 years.

As it was Ferrari did not win and with the Italian soccer team missing the World Cup, golf might just have a chance to thrust itself out of the shadows. But it's also a quick ascent for Molinari, who has now won three of his last six worldwide starts and was ranked No. 33 in the world after missing the cut at The Players Championship two months ago. "Hopefully, there were a lot of young kids watching on TV today, like I was watching Costantino (Rocca) in '95 coming so close".

Woods said it felt like old times.

Justin Spieth may not have lifted the Claret Jug on Sunday but the 2017 Open champion feels back to his best after a productive week at Carnoustie. I'm certainly happy for him.

Arsenal's Ramsey says contract news in 'next few weeks'
Aaron Ramsey has "yet to come to an agreement" with Arsenal over a new contract as he enters the final year of his current deal with the club.

But along the way, Woods gave us another vintage moment when he fired a shot into the gallery at the 11th hole ... and the ball somehow spanged rapidly back toward the hole.

The 35-year-old Italian golfer shot an 8-under, 276 overall score to capture his first every major golf win at The Open championship at Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland. "It was a £9 haircut and I tipped them". Instead of being two shots behind, he was four back, certainly not out of it.

Rory McIlroy continued to bounce back from his US Open disappointment by positioning himself three shots off the halfway lead at the Travelers Championship.

McIlroy remained without a major victory since winning his fourth at the PGA Championship in 2014.

"I know that it's going to sting for a little bit here, but given where I was to where I'm at now, blessed". I really enjoy it. He took advantage of the course's easiest hole at No. 14 and sunk the long eagle putt. I'll ask the vice captains, collectively, and I think we'll do the best we can to round out the team.
