Exciting Finish Makes British Open One to Remember

Rather than going into his shell as he did in the final pairing with eventual champion Patrick Reed at Augusta this year, he didn't let a frustrating front nine at Carnoustie - including two bogeys in the first five holes - crush his spirit.

It was a memorable moment for Molinari, whose two-shot victory at Carnoustie was all-the-more impressive as he partnered a resurgent Tiger Woods on the final day and had to watch the 14-time major victor take the lead himself at one point. When he bogied the next hole his run at the title was done. Either that, or they're a little bit over-served (with drink).

The Final Round of The Open Championship has been filled with an ample amount of drama.

Meanwhile Molinari was particularly proud to have won the Open at Carnoustie, widely regarded as the most hard of all the courses that stage golf's oldest major and the only one played outside the United States. He walked over to his caddie, Michael Greller, and said, "Damn it, I looked at the board, dude".

"My mindset was go and spoil the party here", sad McIlroy.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy shared hugs outside the scoring room at the British Open either side of a brief private chat, two champions experiencing similar disappointment after coming up short at Carnoustie on Sunday. "It's such a great feeling".

Woods' T6 finish at Carnoustie is the brightest feather in his cap so far since his return to golf after a plethora of back issues. "In fact it was a big reason for me not playing the Dunhill Links so much, I got beaten up around here a few times". I knew I was coming in with some good golf but my record around here was awful so that didn't make me too optimistic about the week, but I just tried to not think about it and focus on hitting good shots day by day.

"That's what I thought", said McIlroy.

"It was great just to be a part of it and hear the roars", McIlroy added.

"I was saying earlier that I need to try and keep it in perspective because, the beginning of the year, if they'd have said you're playing The Open Championship, I would have said I'd be very lucky to do that".

Woods finished in sixth, three shots behind, which pulls him back into golf's global top 50. I played with him the final day at Wentworth and he didn't miss a shot.

"He's like, 'He hasn't been in this position in 10 years, and you've been here how many times in the last three years?' He was throwing it back at me", Spieth said.

"He improved a lot the last two years and I always say, "if I'm still the best player in Italy after 20 years, I don't do a very good job".
