Furyk not ready to commit to taking Woods for Ryder Cup

Molinari's win has shot him to the top of the European Ryder Cup team standings

Molinari's win has shot him to the top of the European Ryder Cup team standings

Francesco Molinari's sensational Open Championship win has catapulted the Italian to the top of the European Team Ryder Cup standings and he's now a lock to be facing the Americans on September 28 in Paris.

Francesco Molinari didn't get the loudest cheers for the best golf at British Open.

Kisner blinked first, playing his first three holes in 3 over par; followed by Spieth whose poor 3-wood bounded into a gorse bush at the sixth hole and led to an unplayable lie. It at least moved him to No. 50 in the world ranking, making him eligible for the $10 million Bridgestone Invitational next week at Firestone, where he has won eight times.

The golfer had come close to major championship glory once before, finishing second to Justin Thomas at the 2017 PGA Championship. As a four time major victor, Spieth is well aware of the hard work that goes into making a major champion. He's played a full schedule. "I've played with him before, so I knew what was coming, and I was ready for it". One day after a bogey-free round of 65 to share the lead, he had a birdie-free round at the worst time.

Eddie Pepperell also made news for his sixth-place finish, at five under alongside Kevin Chappell and Woods.

But while previous year Spieth survived a wobble in the final round at Royal Birkdale to take the title, this time he was too erratic, not recovering from a bogey at the fifth that was followed by a double-bogey at the long sixth where his second shot found a gorse bush.

His name etched into the silver claret jug should help with that.

I woke up to see Tiger Woods a few shots back, and then the leaders started to fall early and Tiger rose to a tie for the lead.

"Serena and I are good friends". Today was a good day for both of us with that, I guess.

Demi Lovato heading 'straight to rehab' after hospital stay
Drew Pinksy, who specializes in drug addiction, recently came out with some advice regarding Demi Lovato . Her assistant found her unresponsive in her bed at around 11 AM on Tuesday and called 911.

His birdie at No. 10 got him back in a tie for the lead, but he was another victim of the 12th - the hardest hole of the week - and he never caught up with Molinari.

"It's not (the) Tiger that, you know, Phil (Mickelson) and Ernie (Els) and those guys had to deal with". But it's still great to have him back. "There is real excitement among fans to see the world's top golfers playing at Royal Portrush and it promises to be a fantastic championship".

Although his track record at The Open was nothing special - he'd posted just a single top-10 finish in his first 10 starts at the game's oldest championship - his machine-like game was always going to be a flawless fit for a brown and bouncy links like Carnoustie and a topsy-turvy final round.

"He won the BMW PGA, he won in America and then the Claret Jug".

"He wouldn't tell you, but he's human, and experiencing that kind of pressure that he would have felt leading The Open on a Sunday is no different than anybody else, especially having not experienced it for so long".

Can Woods win another major?

"The fans' support today, and all week, was awesome", he wrote in a post on social media.

"I've done nothing differently to be honest", he said.

"But, no, obviously, it will be massive news in Italy".

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland- The British Open bustled with excitement as the occasion began to unfold, with mobile phones zooming in to capture the moment from the best angle available. He just goes about his business, does it quietly, easily, but the way he played on the weekend with no bogeys, I think that's probably the thing that would impress most players within the game.
