"I think it's been the best putting round ever in my career".

After holing the putt, he went to the locker room and watched on TV to see if his 12-under score would hold up.

Molinari was four strokes ahead of a large group in third place that included defending champion Rory McIlroy, who had also completed 11 holes. I get into the events that I'd like to be into again, the schedules change, I'm no longer having to pick and choose.

"I thought there was an outside chance and just started making putts", 36-year-old Molinari told NBC television about his mindset after he had teed off five strokes from the lead.

"I said this after I won the Open Championship previous year, I didn't enjoy it - that half an hour - at all and I didn't enjoy today at all watching the other guys", he said. Check in for highlights from every tournament plus player interviews, player profiles, tournament previews, swing analysis and all the greatest shots and unbelievable moments.

A flawless eight-under-par closing effort, which was capped by him rolling in a 45-foot birdie putt at the last, set a clubhouse target of 12-under-par that no-one was able to match.

"I'm playing well, I'm getting myself into contention every week, (I need to) continue to do that going into next week. So it's still a bit unreal to think that I've done kind of the same today".

Im took one of three available spots for the British Open to those not yet qualified with the others going to South Korean Kang Sung and American Keith Mitchell, who shared sixth on 280 with Northern Ireland's McIlroy and England's Matt Wallace. He had two birdies, two bogeys and a 72 to tie for sixth. "That's the great thing about golf, you don't have to wait too long to get back on the horse".

"I know the clubs are good for me and I started this week - it's insane to do it here, to get it done here, at Arnie's place, knowing that my wife and my kids were watching it back home, it's just a special, special one".

Check out the top 5 shots of the week from the 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard and Hoag Classic, featuring Francesco Molinari, David Toms, Adam Schenk, Rickie Fowler, and D.A. Points.

Sunjae Im, Tommy Fleetwood and Rafa Cabrera Bello finished tied for third at nine under.

The reason for that is - if a high-owned basketball player flops, he likely still provided you with some production, unless he left the game early or gets scratched.

No one got closer than two shots the whole time he was in the locker room watching the back nine, which was harder than he made his golf look. Between taking the lead in the driving range salute to his grandfather on Monday, and placing the red alpaca cardigan on to Molinari on Sunday, Saunders had to play golf.

"I need to say thank you to the Callaway team because they fit it into the, fitted me into the new clubs very smoothly and it's been a very easy transition".

PGA Tour officials confirmed on Sunday that Tiger Woods will speak to the media at TPC Sawgrass on Tuesday, a sign that the 14-time major champion is hoping to give it a go at the Players Championship on Thursday. He played the four par 5s in 1 under. Singh qualified by winning last year's Bridgestone Senior Players championship ...
