Francesco Molinari won the Italian Open by four strokes on Sunday after shooting a 7-under 65 in the final round to become the first Italian to win the tournament since 1980. The 23-year-old Molinari finished at 23-under 265, beating Anders Hansen (66) and Jarmo Sandelin (65) by four strokes. Soren Kjeldsen (68) was five shots back. Molinari, whose brother Edoardo won the US Amateur title last year, had an eagle at the first hole and added five birdies to complete the last round one shot off the course record at the Castello di Tolcinasco Golf Club. Hansen bogeyed the fourth and 18th holes but still finished with a 66 with an eagle and six birdies. Benn Barham, Molinari's co-leader after the third round, ended up with a 275 after a 3-over on Sunday. (AP)
