Francesco Molinari ‘the hottest player on the planet’ after sealing victory at The Open

His words were echoed by Rory McIlroy, who briefly challenged for the lead on a windy day in Scotland, eventually finishing tied for second alongside Justin Rose, Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele.

“He’s always been a great player, I just he’s just, with the way he’s played this year, had a little bit more belief,” McIlroy said.

“I played with him the final day at Wentworth, where he won, he didn’t miss a shot. He’s a fantastic golfer, a great guy and you know if he does end up winning, it will be very deserved.”
