Published: 23 July 2018

Francesco Molinari has become the first Italian to win a major, holding off a star-studded pack to claim the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie.

Molinari, coached by Putting Solutions Director Phil Kenyon, produced a two-under final round of 69 in tricky conditions on the Scottish links to finish at eight under. He finished two ahead of four players, including home favourite and another of Phil's students Justin Rose on six under.

Fourteen-time major winner Tiger Woods finished five under after leading midway through the round, with defending champion Jordan Spieth on four under. A student of Mike Kanski's, Eddie Pepperell, continued his good form with a tie for 6th place, after a superb closing 67.

Molinari, 35, emerged from a six-way tie for the lead, with some superb tee to green play and the kind of clutch putting you need to lift a Claret Jug.

A huge congratulations to Francesco and his team, including Sky Sports Golf analyst Denis Pugh, on this tremendous victory at Carnoustie. An Open Championship that will live long in the memory!
