  • Francesco Molinari became the first Italian to win a US PGA event since the late Toney Penna took the 1947 Atlanta OpenMore

Molinari left with his first PGA Tour victory, unleashing a shot-making clinic on the field en route to a final-round, course-record-tying 62 on Sunday to win the Quicken Loans National at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farms in Potomac, Md., in the northwest suburbs of the nation's capital.

The 14-time major champion was collecting birdies in droves early in his third round at the Quicken Loans National, and by the time Woods reached the seventh hole on a steamy Saturday, he was within a stroke of the lead at the tournament he's hosted since 2007.

Ancer birdied four of the first seven holes and made his longest birdie putt of 16 feet at the 16th while Molinari's longest was a 28-footer at the par-3 17th. He holed a 50-foot eagle putt on the 10th.

Woods began on the back nine and sank a 24-foot birdie putt on the 10th hole. "Tomorrow I just need to go out and do my best, hit as many good shots as possible and see if that would be enough".

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. "Really proud of what I've done and I hope a lot of guys back home were watching".

"I don't know if the course is going to be set-up like that but you just never know as it's been warm over there, and the grass has probably been growing".

"I did a good job today", Molinari told Sky Sports.

The engagement invite was a one-minute video clip that had a song Shubhaarambh from Kai Po Che movie playing in the background. After a Goa vacation with boyfriend Nick Jonas , Priyanka attended the ceremony at Antilia here on Thursday night.

"It's a tweener between my training putter at home and what I normally go with, so just go ahead and trust", Woods said.

Woods tallied six birdies and two bogeys during his round Sunday. Kelly (72) led after the first three rounds, but finished the tournament without making a putt over 12 feet. Three birdies later, he was nine shots clear and on his way to victory in the Quicken Loans National.

"It was nice to make a couple of birdies coming in, granted missed a little kick-in on 14", he said after another solid display since undergoing spinal fusion surgery previous year.

"I missed some putts this week, but that's okay as long as I'm starting the ball on my lines again and I have the speed", he said.

Woods had a roller third round, but he kept himself in contention for the tournament with a 68, putting him inside the top 10 entering Sunday.

"So it was frustrating because I thought 10 under would have been a good score for me for me to end up at for the day". He hit a 6-iron to 2 feet for birdie on No. 11, one of the hardest par 4s on the PGA Tour which had yielded only one other birdie all day.

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.
