Molinari claims Palmer Invitational as McIlroy fades

Between taking the lead in the driving range salute to his grandfather on Monday, and placing the red alpaca cardigan on to Molinari on Sunday, Saunders had to play golf.

This putt was from 45 feet, longer than anything Woods ever made. "I just started making putts".

Matt Fitzpatrick managed only two birdies in his round of 71 and made a 3-foot par putt to finish alone in second.

NORTH PORT, Fla. (AP) - Alana Uriell won the Symetra Tour's season-opening SKYiGOLF Championship in her professional debut, beating Julieta Granada and Lauren Coughlin with a 12-foot eagle putt on the first hole of a playoff. That will get him into the WGC-Match Play in three weeks, boosting his bid to get into the top 50 by April for an invitation to the Masters. Rory McIlroy started the final round one shot behind and never got anything going.

"And (now) I know I can register low scores on every golf course". "I've seen so many putts on TV like that and to do it yourself it's really unbelievable". "So good golf is good golf".

Earlier in his career, Molinari, admittedly, lacked the killer instinct to deliver such a final-round performance. His five-shot comeback was the largest at Bay Hill since Woods in 2009, which he won with a birdie from 15 feet on the 18th hole. He played bogey-free on the final day at Carnoustie for his first major.

Molinari said he didn't approach the final round with any special ideas of clawing his way back, instead seeking opportunities as they came along.

".to get it done here at Arnie's place knowing that my wife and the kids were watching back home", Molinari told NBC. "I think sort of protecting my position a little bit". It gave him a two-shot lead at 12-under 276, and no one got closer than two shots the rest of the way.

Perhaps it was only fitting that the claret jug was at Bay Hill, which served as part of the Open Qualifying Series.

Molinari had four birdies on the front nine and four more after the turn, including a 44-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that sealed his third PGA Tour victory.

While Im, compatriot Kang Sung-hoon and American Keith Mitchell earned invitations to the British Open, as the top three finishers not already exempt the day belonged to Molinari.

Rafael Cabrera Bello went from 34th to 30th with his share of third place, while the same result vaulted Sungjae Im from 88th to 71st.

Sweeping left-to-right from just inside 44 feet away, Molinari, who went on to win the event, hit the putt with the flawless amount of pace to put him in position for his third PGA Tour title in the last eight months. "I'm looking forward to seeing what happens going forward and playing in some bigger events". "It was probably my best putting round ever".

Molinari has four victories worldwide in his last 17 starts over the last nine months.

It's safe to say that Molinari did just that on Sunday, and he did Mr. Palmer proud.

"The winter came and it was time to find some motivation, which wasn't extremely easy after a year ago". The Quicken Loans National on the PGA Tour.

He will look to become the first Italian to win the iconic event.
