"He's had some big moments in his career but I don’t know of any bigger than this," Paul Azinger said in his TV commentary as Francesco Molinari held a monster birdie putt on the last yesterday to finish the round that ultimately saw him win the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Zinger clearly oblivious to when the Italian won the Open Championship at Carnoustie last Summer and went 5-0-0 at the Ryder Cup!!


How Did He Do It?


On his first week as a Callaway staffer Francesco hit 43 fairways (T3 in the field) with his Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero driver averaging 294.5 yards. That set up 48 greens in regulation (T6 in the stats), including 14 in his final round, using Apex MB '18 irons.
That foundation of 3.672 Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green allowed Fran to circle birdies at 1, 3, 6, 8, 12, 13, 16 and finally a 45 footer on 18 with his Odyssey Toulon Madison Stroke Lab putter. The now London resident ended the day with an incredible clip of 4.223 Strokes Gained: Putting with 25 total putts.
