Francesco Molinari wins British Open


The British Open has a new champion.  Francesco Molinari has become Italy's first major champion after firing a two-under-par 69 Sunday at the golf tournament in Scotland.  The 35-year-old underlined his status as the best by finishing the four-day competition with an eight-under total of 276.  He beat Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Kevin Kisner by two strokes.  Tiger Woods appeared ready to end his 10-year victory drought before hitting a double bogey on the 11th hole and a bogey on the 12th.
