Golf Australia Express : Issue 8
BIRDIE, BIRDIE, birdie. Many dream to end an event in that vein but it’s a rarity. But that’s exactly what Italian Edoardo Molinari did to take victory from Australian Brett Rumford in the 2010 Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. Sitting two back from Rumford with three holes to play the 29-year-old Molinari needed something special. “Playing on 16, I thought I was one behind, and I had two par-5s to play and thought that I still had a chance to win the tournament if I make two birdies in the last three,” Molinari said. He then two-putted the long 16th, sank a curling 30-footer at the 194-yard 17th and hit a chip to within 18 inches of the final hole. A one- under par 71 in the windy conditions was enough to take the €282,773 first prize with a 10-under par total of 278. Rumford finished second with Spaniard Miguel Angel Jiménez, Welshman Jamie Donaldson and Molinari’s brother Francesco two shots back.
