British Open champion Francesco Molinari already has a brilliant retirement plan

Francesco Molinari was absolutely stellar on Sunday at the Open Championship, scrambling his way to a nice bogey-free round of 69 while the rest of the contenders were beaten up by Carnoustie on a windy day along the North Sea coast.

Though Woods fell short of winning his first major title in 10 years and 15th of his career, analysts and fans were nonetheless appreciative of his performance and the day's worth of golf.

Woods can, and very well might, win another major championship or three.

Former Gophers golfer Erik van Rooyen shot a 2-over 73 on Sunday and finished tied for 17th place at -2.

Two other Thais, Jazz Janewattananond and Danthai Boonma failed to qualify.

He regained some form in 2018, most crucially gaining regular play time without any injury concerns, and now at Carnoustie, Tiger Woods is the betting favourite to win his 15th Major.

It was the Italian's third victory in five starts. He was surrounded by his usual entourage, but also two new, younger additions to his clan.

"It's been a few years since I've felt like this", Woods said in comments that might seem somewhat ominous for his rivals.

It is believed the problem has not hit all of the IT systems used by the airline and most are working as normal. The airport said the main runway "remained temporarily unavailable whilst we switched to our standby".

The 14-times major victor had to settle for a closing 71 and a 279 aggregate.

"It's clearly a little bit disappointing to not give myself a shot at even getting into contention", Day said after he was level with Molinari and played with the Italian on Saturday only to enter the final round 10 shots adrift of the leaders and without any real hope. Suddenly, Tiger Woods, after the scandals and injuries and last years's DUI that stemmed from a struggle with pain medication, sat atop a leaderboard, alone, at a major for the first time since the 2011 Masters.

The dream, though, ended for Woods on his return after a two-year hiatus to a major he has won three times when he double bogeyed the 11th and then dropped another shot on the following hole. Tiger being back in the mix. Three more pars brought him to the 18th tied for the lead with Schauffele, and the 35-year-old from Italy stuffed his approach to four feet, pouring in the birdie putt for the win.

This took him to within one shot of the lead. "I focused on my process and on hitting good shots and on playing smart golf".

"She'll probably call me and talk to me about it because you've got to put things in perspective", Woods said. No. 11, with its "bad three-iron off the tee", its second shot that hit a green-side spectator in the cap, and its third shot that went up a slope toward the green but couldn't get there and made a decision to come back down, could provide particular wincing.

Molinari has won half of his last six starts after a flawless final-round performance at Carnoustie.

He vented his frustration when distracted by a shout from a spectator in the middle of his swing although the drive itself found the fairway. Playing a safe shot from behind the 11th green?

Molinari teamed up with his brother Edoardo in the Ryder Cup in 2010 and scored a half point against Woods to secure outright victory in his singles match in the 2012 competition in Chicago, dubbed the "Miracle of Medinah" after Europe fought back to win from a seemingly impossible position.
