CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) Francesco Molinari played a steady hand amid the cheers for Tiger Woods and another crazy ending at Carnoustie to win the British Open and become Italys first major champion.
Woods brought pandemonium by charging into the lead on Sunday at a major for the first time in nine years, only to lose it with one bad hole. Jordan Spieth cost himself by failing to make a single birdie.
Seven players had a share of the lead at some point. Six were still tied on the back nine.
