Tiger Woods laments ‘mistakes’ after losing championship lead at The Open

Tiger Woods laments ‘mistakes’ after losing championship lead at The Open

According to ESPN, he's the first major champion since Steve Elkington at the 1995 PGA Championship to play the final two rounds without a hole over par.

Francesco Molinari played a steady hand amid another insane ending at Carnoustie and won the British Open to become Italy's first major champion. "Obviously it's incredible to stand here".

"Congratulations to the runners-up". "But there can only be one victor". "Tiger is minus-7, he didn't have a drink last night, I bet". "The alternative was I was back home and ruing another Open Championship slipped away". I'm sure she'll probably call me and talk to me about it because you've got to put things in perspective.

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).

The course and windy conditions took its took on the field, with the leaders faltering and coming back to the pack and those chasing having little success.

He had briefly tied the lead when he got to eight under after holing a 20-foot putt for his second birdie of the day at the second hole, but a late bogey left the four-time major victor three adrift of halfway leader Brian Harman. Only one more major can complete the Tiger Woods saga. "He hit a lot of attractive little pitches up there to basically kick-ins". Rose is No. 3 and almost joined them until he made an 18-foot birdie putt on the last hole to make the cut on the number.

The "where I was" referred to the years of debilitating back pain that was finally solved by a spinal fusion last April, allowing him to resume his career after four years of severely-curtailed appearances.

And while he didn't manage to get it done on Sunday at the 147th Open, it once again feels not a question of if, but rather when he might have his name engraved on one of the four major trophies once more.

Spieth believes there will be a much different golf course in front of players Sunday than there was in the third round, when the greens were holding, the wind was nonexistent and the temperature as warm as it gets this time of the year in Scotland.

Another American Kevin Chappell is two shots off the lead with Italy's Francesco Molinari on six under and Woods another stroke back alongside Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Webb Simpson, Alex Noren, Matt Kuchar and Zach Johnson.

Woods flinched when it mattered most, the nerves of a 42-year-old on display for all to see.

"I'm lost for words really", said Molinari, who has now won three times in his last six starts. There were three guys at 9.

"I played pretty similar to this at the Players Championship". Only two players failed to make par or better, with 58 making birdie as the hole played to an average of 4.228. His 69 in the final round featured a bogey on the fifth, an eagle on the par-5, 14th hole and a closing birdie on the final hole to push him to 6 under.

Justin Rose, who made a birdie on the 18th hole Friday to make the cut, was 2 under through 8 holes.

"Today was an interesting day", said Rose.

"I know it's going to sting for a little bit here, but given where I was to where I am now, (I feel) blessed".

"Leaders were off to solid starts the first couple of holes, then all of a sudden something happened and they dropped a bunch of shots and then I knew it was game on from that point".
