The Open 2018

With a leaderboard featuring some of the world’s top players, including stars of the golf world like Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy, Italian champion Francesco Molinari stepped up to win his first major title.

The stellar play of Molinari—who also won Europe’s other major event, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in May—led him to claim the trophy at the Open Championship at Carnoustie.

Less than a month ago, Molinari also won the Quicken Loans National—and was handed the trophy by Tiger Woods, the event host.
