With a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 in his final round of the Open de Espana, Francesco Molinari emerged with a three-stroke victory.
Molinari started the day outside the top five on the leaderboard and four strokes back of 54-hole leader, Simon Dyson. The Italian ball-striker then did what he does best, missing only one of 14 fairways and one green in the finale at Real Club de Golf de Sevilla to post 8-under 280. His closing 65 was the low round for the tournament and two strokes better than anyone in the field on Sunday. At 5-under 283, Spaniards Pablo Larrazabal and Alejandro Canizares shared second place with Soren Kjeldsen. Dyson shot a 76 in the final round, fading to a share of 12th place. Molinari's victory today exempts him into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in August.
