Francesco Molinari (2018 Open Championship) brought back that Carnoustie feeling – accurate off the tee, lethal with a putter, poised no matter what – in recording a final-round 64 that brought him the title at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, Florida. It also earned him the red cardigan that honors Palmer.
Molinari was eight strokes better on Sunday than Rory McIlroy (2011 U.S. Open, 2012, 2014 PGA Championship, 2014 Open Championship), who was in the final group on the final day but again came up flat. Still, Ron Green Jr. writes that McIlroy is pleased with his game and remains keen on adding a sartorially splendid green jacket.
Martin Kaymer (2010 PGA Championship, 2014 U.S. Open) is not done – not by a long shot. Kaymer’s body has healed and his short game is improving at just the right time of year.
Justin Harding (major breakthrough), who did not have full-time status on the European Tour, fended off nine runners-up to win the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters – his first European Tour victory.
Paul Lawrie (1999 Open Championship) is getting into player management with Five Star Sports Agency. He founded the company during an injury layoff, doing key legwork while he had a bad foot.
And surely there are majors (and lieutenants and sergeants) among the British PGA professionals who fought and died in World War I. John Hopkins writes about the yeoman’s work done by Philip Weaver, OBE, to preserve their legacy and sacrifice.
Lastly, if you’d like another serving of Molinari, read the Range Rat, which features the major equipment news of his commitment to Callaway.
