Mollinari in a breakaway at the last Quicken Loans Nationals
Francesco Molinari set a milestone and won the last Quicken Loans National. Mollinari drilled a 50-foot Aqua putting to launch the rear nine, and he never held until he turned the last lap into a breakaway on the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm. With an 8 out of 62, the Italian finished in an eight-shot finish and achieved the highest PGA Tour margins this year.
After winning the playoff, Stanley takes the Quicken Loans Nationals.
His first PGA Tour win in five years, Kyle Stanley defeated Charles Howell III on the first half of her playoff to win the Quicken Loans National. After 72 shots, the Americans could not be split, as they both closed 66 with one card to move to seven under-par at TPC Potomac on Avenel Farm.
Stanley, however, won against the additional pocket after having kept his courage to pitch from a height of two metres after seeing Howell miss his try from twice the mile. A Stanley emotionally minded man who has been struggling since his first ever European stage Waste Management Phoenix Open 2012 triumph is hoping this triumph will boost his professionalism.
He was four shot driving from night guide David Lingmerth and slid further back when he bogeyed the first one after having found a green shelter, but it would turn out to be the only mistake of an unforgettable one. Birdie on the fifth, sixth y 8th days lit the 29-year-old in the standings and he scored a forth win in six wholes just after the corner after approaching a great four-foot near goal.
It struck for another birdy on the 299 yard, four-par 14th, which was enough to seven him under, along with game mate Howell, who had just pocketed a 27 ft puttingt o an Adler. He and Stanley both failed to see the playoff holes along the way, except that the latter splintered to five toes before a second tournament cap was sealed.
Rickie Fowler, nine from the top of the rankings, rallied the rankings after nine birdies to help him reach a final score of 65, which was enough to draw third place with Martin Laird of Scotland to five overall. While Lingmerth had lead 54 of the 54-hole Maryland tournament, he was made to regret a second 73 in a row, which included three boys and a doubles boy, when he chose a five point score along with seven others.
Stanley has deserved his place in this month's Open Championship as a reward for winning, R&A said. Howell, Laird and Sung Kang from South Korea, who were the fifth to draw, have also taken their places at Royal Birkdale.
