Molinari breaks Italy's majors duck - English

Here's some jackass yelling in the middle of Tiger's swing on the 18th tee at the Open Rory McIlroy upbeat as Francesco Molinari wins the Open

Number of Italian major champions as of 6:53 p.m.in Carnoustie, the moment Molinari officially became the British Open champion. Unsurprisingly, Twitter loved it, catching a case of what we're calling "Tiger Woods fever".

Woods, who was watched by his children and got adoring hugs as he left the final green, admitted he was "a little ticked off with himself" but said his close friend and tennis superstar Serena Williams - who lost in the Wimbledon singles final last weekend - would set him right.

With that triumph came extra fame, media attention, prestige and winnings - he took back to Italy $1.8 million after topping the Carnoustie leaderboard. Just a year ago, Woods was ranked 674th in the world.

"It felt great to be a part of the mix and build my way into the championship". As always, we've rounded up the best reactions below for your viewing pleasure.

Tiger Woods was not the only golfer to experience distraction. Let us know in the comments.

Francesco finished joint fourth when his sibling won the Scottish Open at Loch Lomond in 2010, the same year he landed the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. "I figured no-one's going to run away, I can pick up some strokes and I did that to get back in the lead".

"It's a good second-shot golf course", he said.

Francesco Molinari was only half joking when he said his stunning British Open victory might make the headlines back home - as long Ferrari had not won the Grand Prix in Hockenheim. For a while, I thought Tiger was going to win and my mindset was "go and spoil the party here".

Spieth has had at least a share of the lead after any round in the majors 16 times dating to the 2014 Masters.

After taking 10 years to win four times on the European Tour, Molinari has now claimed three victories and two second places in his last six events, securing a third Ryder Cup appearance in September and climbing to a career-high of sixth in the world.

Playing alongside the resurgent Woods in the final round, Molinari carded a nerveless two-under-par 69 to win the Claret Jug by two shots from McIlroy (70), English hope Justin Rose (69) and Americans Xander Schauffele (74) and Kevin Kisner (74).

Molinari said that playing alongside Tiger Woods for the final round added to the pleasure.

The 42 year old said he had enjoyed being in contention again at the front as he put loss of form and injuries behind him.

Rose also eagled the par-five 14th - the only hole that was offering any gifts as a course so docile on Saturday bit back.

"And he wouldn't tell you, but he's human", Spieth said.
