It was a Euro Invasion at the top of the leaderboard this weekend at the Arnie Invitational with Italiano Francisco Molinari taking home top honors with a bellesimo Sunday 64.
The prohibitive favorite going into the weekend was our old friend Rory Mac, who despite planting himself firmly in the Top 10 all season has yet to nab an actual win. A now remains winless.
Here’s a fun fact:
Not to pile on to Rory too much, though it is a fun pastime here at Hi-Top Golf HQ, but at some point you have to win the Tournament on Sunday. In the last 10 times Rory has been in a Sunday final group he’s posted a sub 70 only 3 times. Yikes.
The reigning Open Champ Molinari on the other hand is showing himself to be a real deal player who steps up in the big moment.
Molinari’s birdie on 18 was special:
The Masters is a month away and things are getting interesting folks. Very very interesting.
