26 July, 2018, 20:17
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.

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.
