Francesco Molinari continued his stellar 2018 season by winning his first major at The Open after a titanic final-round battle at Carnoustie.

Molinari was paired with Tiger Woods on the final day, starting three shots behind a trio of Americans atop the leaderboard.

And the Turin native became the 2018 Champion Golfer of the Year after a final-round 69 for an 8-under-par total of 276.

His bogey-free play over the weekend over the Angus links will go down as one of the most consistent performances in the history of The Open.
