Chiccoooooooooooooooo!!!!! what an amazing afternoon...I just can't stop crying...

this is one of the highest point of the Italian sport history and Molinari now is by right one of the best Italian athletes ever...

this is a weekend we'll never forget...thanks, Chicco...

 

when the wind comes, Carnoustie becomes Carnasty...and the Americans start having troubles (and the British players start shining)...

and this time Molinari looked like a native Briton, remaining the only player in the field without a single bogey in the final 2 rounds, which led him to win The Open #147 with a 2-stroke margin over his immediate followers, :ENG Justin Rose, :NIR Rory McIlroy, :USA Kevin Kisner and :USA Xander Schauffele...

:USA Tiger Woods played very well in the first 10 holes (he was leading the field at that moment), but then he had a bad finish and ended up "only" in 6th place (tied with 2 other players), 3 strokes behind Molinari...

 

here is the historical full final leaderboard:

Very happy for Molinari. He has been so close.

Italy is thereby the 19th country to win a major (not counting Jersey).

 

Pretty happy about Olesen's 12th place as well. His shape is great and if he keeps it up, he may even have a small chance to make it into team Europe for the Ryder Cup

The PGA Tour year is being closed this week at the Tour Championship in Atlanta. Tiger Woods is playing very well, tied for the lead with Justin Rose after two days. So far today he is playing brilliantly: three birdies in the first four holes, and a fantastic putt in the 4th, taking him to the lone lead so far.

It's pure golf porn what Woods is showing today. Seven holes done now, six birdies :bowdown:

finally, a great round for Tiger...he finished with -5 for the day and he's leading the tournament with a 3-stroke margin at -12 total...

McIlroy and Rose are tied for second...and this means that he could win the overall tour ranking if De Chambeau doesn't improve by much in the last round (yesterday he had a good 66 and showed some sign of life, but it's not enough yet)...

unfortunately, Molinari's not having a good playoff run at all...I hope he's gonna have a better weekend next week at the Ryder Cup (I just can't wait for those 3 magical days)...

and finally, after 5 years of troubles (mental and physical), Tiger is back...

he won the Tour Championship tournament in Atlanta and almost took also the big prize money, which was instead won by Justin Rose thanks to a birdie in the final hole of the day...

and from Friday, it's Ryder Cup time (on one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world, Le Golf National in St.Quintin just outside Paris)...I just can't wait...:bounce:

Meanwhile it should also be mentioned that Oliver Fischer posted the first 59-round ever at the European Tour.

Only 3 times a better score has been posted on a major golf tour (58's on the Japan Tour, the Web.com tour and the PGA Tour)

And with the only 3rd Danish player ever and of course the Bear as captain of the European Team.

Sadly the US team should be seen as pretty big favourites, but you never know!
