Sunday's golf roundup: Molinari wins PGA tournament by eight shots

GETTYFrancesco Molinari is joint leader at the Quicken Loans National

Ancer birdied two of his last three holes for the lowest score of his career, an 8-under 62, giving the 27-year-old Mexican his best shot at a first PGA Tour victory.

Jun 30, 2018; Potomac, MD, USA; Tiger Woods of the United States waves to the crowd while walking off the the 17th tee during the third round of The National golf tournament at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm. Ancer carded a 72 and did not have a birdie on his scorecard in the final round after making eight birdies in the third round, in which he tied the course record one day before Molinari did so.

Francesco Molinari joined Abraham Ancer at the top of the Quicken Loans National leaderboard after Tiger Woods slipped out of contention.

Woods missed a couple of short putts on the back nine, shooting 66 to finish 10 shots behind the victor.

Although Woods picked up four successive birdies from the fourth, there were bogeys on the first, eighth, 13th and 18th. "When I was struggling there for a little bit, and I couldn't even cheer for my good ones".

The leading four players in the top 12 and not already exempt secured qualification for The Open through the Open Qualifying series, with Armour, Kang, Ancer and Bronson Burgoon booking their spots for Carnoustie. "I just haven't made anything and finally I'm starting to make those putts you're supposed to make from 10-15 feet but I'm also making some from outside 20".

"It was a lot easier than I thought", Molinari told CBS television. "It's a good feeling for me".

Trump predicts 'vicious' fight over Supreme Court vacancy
Wade will soon be overruled if Trump gets the chance to appoint a justice who could cast a potentially decisive vote against it. Justice Anthony Kennedy planned to retire at the end of August. "The fact of the matter is - Roe v.

"I haven t done that, as I said, for the better part of two months, so that was nice, to make over 100 feet of putts twice this week". Despite his success in Europe, which included a runner-up finish at the Italian Open in June, he was in danger of not qualifying for the playoffs until his breakthrough at the Quicken Loans National. The plan was to do my own thing and try to make birdies and keep pushing. And thus, a really good round that turned into one that left him feeling frustrated.

The roars that echoed throughout the grounds after his chip-in for birdie at 18 on Friday and his run of four consecutive birdies on Saturday were roars that only Woods could produce.

Woods came to live with a pair of birdies late on the front nine, and he was in range to get even closer when he hit a lob wedge to 6 feet on No. 10.

Woods followed with a 16-foot birdie putt at the par-4 15th, but missed a six-footer to bogey the par-3 17th.

"I know it's boring and everyone says the same but it's the way golf works". And then he missed a 3-foot birdie putt on No. 14.

As the gallery at No. 5 scrambled to surround the green, Woods delivered a wedge shot to seven feet and made the putt to pull within three shots of the lead at that time.
