Molinari wins PGA tournament by eight shots — Sunday's golf roundup

Despite his success in Europe, which included a runner-up finish at the Italian Open in June, he was in danger of not qualifying for the playoffs until his breakthrough at the Quicken Loans National.

Francesco Molinari delivered a record performance to win the final edition of the Quicken Loans National.

Near misses on the putting surface during his inward nine, including bogeys at Nos.

"I saw that I was only four back when I made the turn, and so I thought that maybe if I shot 30, maybe 29, that would be enough, " he said.

The 35-year-old Italian has four career European Tour wins, including the 2016 Italian Open, and conquered TPC Potomac in his 122PGA Tour start.

The low round of the day belonged to Ancer, whose 8-under 62 matched a course record and came amid unrelenting heat and humidity forecast to worsen Sunday.

Trump urges Saudis to raise oil output 'by two million barrels'
That might be fine by Trump, who earlier this month blamed rising prices on OPEC, but has fostered close ties to Saudi Arabia . That's highly ironic because Trump had been whingeing about higher oil prices and urging higher production.

Abraham Ancer and Francesco Molinari co-lead the 2018 Quicken Loans National at 13 under after 54 holes, and they're trailed by Zac Blair and Ryan Armour, both of whom are at 11 under.

Woods, 42, is competing at Potomac for the first time.

"It was frustrating because I played better than what my score indicates", Woods said.

"The crowds were absolutely unbelievable".

"I didn't want to lose it on the last couple holes", Woods said. I just did 100-percent effort every shot, every putt and still, you know, I like looking at the positive side. I just heard all the roars. The roars were insane.

Toms sank a 15-foot birdie on the par-3 16th hole at the Broadmoor to take the lead, then held on with a 20-foot downhill make after laying up from a fairway bunker on the 17th hole. His tee shot at the par-4 first sailed right and landed in the primary rough 180 yards from the flag, and his approach settled in the first cut behind the green.

Russian Federation beat Spain on penalties to reach World Cup quarterfinals
That defied expectations for the home team, and Russia's path to the final also includes a potential semifinal here. Akinfeev pushed away a 109th-minute shot from substitute Rodrigo who ran hard at goal from near the halfway line.

"One of the neat things about playing an Open Championship - they don't really care what par is", Woods said. "It's going to be long grinds". "If I can do like I've done most of my career, putts go in". Kinhult was 10-under through three rounds and Wood was eight-under.

Another birdie on the 12th when Ancer left his birdie putt on the lip expanded Molinari's advantage to seven strokes with six holes to play, and after two more birdies at the 13th and 14th, the rest of the round was a stroll to the finish line. He won by eight shots.

Starting the day at three-under, Lahiri celebrated his 31st birthday with a birdie on 10th, his first hole of the day.

A spectacular chip-in and four putts beyond 15 feet were among his seven birdies, the 14-time major victor sharing 11th on five-under 135 after 36 holes at TPC Potomac, only four strokes behind U.S. co-leaders Brian Gay, Beau Hossler and Ryan Armour.

"It was a lot easier than I thought", Molinari said with a wide grin. "I've got a lot of work to do tomorrow". "The scores aren't going to be that low".
