Off the Tee: 2018 British Open Recap
It was one of the most competitive British Open's in history with no fewer than seven different players holding at least a share of the lead during the final round at Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland. At one point there was six-way tie for first on the back nine, Sunday (July 22).
But when it was all said and done, Italian Francesco Molinari put together an impressive streak of 37 holes without a bogey to emerge with a two-stroke win and Italy's first major victory.
In this edition of 'Off The Tee', Joel Harrington from 4 Deep Golf and I talk Molinari's win, which surprised a lot of people, despite five top five finishes in his last six events heading into The Open.
