BMW PGA Championship Report

It’s been a long time coming, but Francesco Molinari is finally a winner at Wentworth.

The Italian must have wondered what it would take to get over the line – in his last six appearances here at European Tour HQ, Molinari has finished inside the top-10 five times. Last year, only Alex Noren – who fired a mind-boggling 62 in the final round – got the better of him.

Nobody would catch him this time, though. Starting the final round tied with Rory McIlroy, Molinari posted a bogey-free round of 68 to run out a two-shot winner and claim his fifth European Tour title.

The 35-year-old got things started with birdies at the 3rd and 4th, and then went on to play almost error-free golf with further birdies at the 8th and 12th.

The only scare came at the infamous par-5 18th. After laying up, his approach found the middle of the green but spun back off the front edge, narrowly missing the water hazard.

Not known for being a prolific winner, this was a clinic in ball-striking and how to play while facing the pressure of being in contention.

It was made all the more impressive that this level of performance came in the Rolex Series opener, as Molinari takes home £880,000 and joins an illustrious list of winners here at the spiritual home of the European Tour.
