Tiger Woods Nearly Had It But Francesco Molinari Wins The UK Open 2018 At Carnoustie - The Greatest Golfer On Planet Earth Drinks From The Claret Jug Tonight

What a finish to the 2018 Open, at one point Tiger Woods was leading, could he do it. Sadly a double bogey followed by another bogey, and the great run was finished. Justin Rose was leading in the club house, Rory McIlroy joining him when he couldn't quite pull off a final birdie on the 18th. And then Francesco Molinari, one of my favourite golfers, and with a perfect scorecard, blazed ono the 18th with a birdie, and pulled off an 8 under. With only a few players left out there, and needing an eagle 2 on the last to win. A big ask and not deliverable. Francesco had done it.

Always my favourite players are Matt Kucher, Rickie Fowler and Francesco Molinari. Tiger joined the team today and I was so thrilled for him. But the night belongs to Francesco.

Italy's favourite son in a summer of sport. And they saved the best til last.
