Molinari hopes victory inspires Italy like Rocca did for him

Tiger Woods reacts during the final round of the British Open Championship at Carnoustie

However, Allen added that he agreed with what Rory McIlroy stated at Carnoustie in relation to the modern-day Woods, that he is not the same animal as the all-dominating Tiger that played with Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els around the turn of the millennium.

Justin Rose finished second at six under, alongside Schauffele, McIlroy, and Kevin Kisner, who had his best major championship finish.

"I wish him all the best, and I'm sure this will motivate him even more to achieve some great things in the game of golf in the future".

Tiger Woods made a whole lot of golf fans happy this weekend, as the 42-year-old duffer's Lazarus act during the final round of the British Open helped NBC deliver the biggest audience for golf's longest-running showcase in almost two decades.

"For a while, I thought Tiger was going to win". Woods faltered coming down the stretch, and Francesco Molinari ended up winning the whole dang thing. "Just sort of ran out of holes at the end".

"I'm not really frustrated", McIlroy said after a one-under 70 left him on six-under 278 overall, two behind champion Francesco Molinari of Italy.

Back in 1995 at St Andrews, another Scottish course and the venue for this week's Senior British Open, Rocca holed a stunning 60-foot birdie on the 18th hole to force a play-off only for John Daly of the United States to win that year's Open.

The Northern Irishman, who missed the cut in the year's second major at Shinnecock Hills last week after struggling to an opening 80, followed his first round 64 with a 69 at TPC River Highlands in CT. "Hopefully, they will get as inspired as I was at the time, watching him vie for the claret jug". "I knew I was coming in with some good golf but my record around here was bad 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".

For much of his career, if Tiger Woods said he had a shot to win a major golf tournament, you believed him. Molinari was rock solid and bogey free, and the Italian joined Y.E. Yang as the only players to be paired with Woods in the final round of a major and win.

'He knows how hard I've been working to get here so I think he felt the same proudness I felt yesterday.' Molinari revealed the Claret Jug had spent the night on his bedside table, although he did not get much sleep as he celebrated his first major title. I hit really good putts too.

"I played patiently. I put good swings on it".

"Serena and I are good friends", said the 42-year-old, whose last major triumph came back in 2008.
