British Open: Nike Athlete Francesco Molinari Wins Italy’s First Major Golf Title

Good start for Tiger Woods in #TheOpen final round

"I put good swings on it". And yesterday was a big day because we knew what the conditions were as easy as it was going to get.

At one time on the back nine, after McIlroy eagled the par-5, 14th hole, there were six players tied for the lead at 6 under, three shots worse than where Spieth, Schauffele and Kisner began the round after leading at the 54-hole mark.

He had briefly tied the lead when he got to eight under after holing a 20-foot putt for his second birdie of the day at the second hole, but a late bogey left the four-time major victor three adrift of halfway leader Brian Harman.

On a day when Woods rose and then sank, Rory McIlroy sank and then rose, Jordan Spieth led and then sank and Justin Rose sank and then rose, a guy playing his 36th major tournament with three previous top 10 finishes had played the last 37 holes of a snarling course with a maddening Sunday wind with a preposterous number of bogeys: zero.

He won the PGA Championship at Wentworth in May and recently claimed his first victory on the PGA Tour at the Quicken Loans National. He can remind them of that today.

Woods, who stood on the 11th tee with a 1-shot lead at The Open, hit a spectator over the green from deep rough with his second shot, left a pitch short and made a double-bogey.

Spieth, the defending champion and co-leader at 9-under before a brutal closing 76? That would stem from Nos.

Donald Trump willing to slap tariffs on all Chinese imports
Trump has been on a mission to reduce the US$552-billion USA trade deficit and rebuild the nation's manufacturing sector. Trump's comments are a break with tradition that presidents avoid commenting on the path of domestic monetary policy.

Chappell (73) finished another shot back, in the hunt until a double-bogey at the penultimate hole, where his hopes ended in the middle of a gorse bush. This is the best way I could've spent my birthday.

"I think he's got a great chance", Norris said.

"She just had a baby and lost the Wimbledon finals". Just keep it in perspective, and the same thing with me.

Woods has been plagued by knee and back injuries and dealt with personal problems including a marriage breakup since winning the last of his 14 majors a decade ago.

What it means: For much of the afternoon, it seemed like the Molinari-Woods pairing would produce an improbable champion - just not Molinari.

"Francesco played really solidly, " Woods said. With another tough save from off the green at the 16th, he didn't miss a shot the rest of the way. "I've already gone through the frustration".

The 35-year-old's first birdie of the day finally arrived at the par-five 14th and a pinpoint approach at the final hole set up another birdie opportunity from six feet that he needed no second invitation to take.

Trump labels European Union foe of US
Trump complained: "No matter how well I do at the Summit", he'll face "criticism that it wasn't good enough". Big banners said "Welcome Trump " and "God Bless D & M Trump " and a helicopter hovered overhead.

The name "Woods" atop the board?

"He chipped it beautifully", Woods said of Molinari.

Woods birdied two of his first six holes to get to 7-under-par, a shot behind Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele. "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".

As the two 24-year-olds and all others made their occasional messes, as at No. 6, Molinari made none. Until this tournament, he hadn't played four rounds of a major in par or better since the 2010 Masters.

"The beginning of the year, if they'd have said, 'You're playing The Open Championship, ' I would have said I'd be very lucky to do that".

"Playing with Tiger was another challenge because of the crowds and everything, but I felt really good this morning".

He spoke of watching countryman Constantino Rocca in 1995 at St. Andrews, where the Italian finished second in the playoff to John Daly.
