CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Francesco Molinari became Italy’s first major champion after firing a closing two-under-par 69 to win the British Open at Carnoustie on Sunday.

The 35-year-old from Turin underlined his status as the hottest player in world golf by finishing with an eight-under total of 276.

Molinari beat Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Kevin Kisner by two strokes.

Molinari, playing alongside former world No. 1 Tiger Woods in the final round, produced a joyful fist pump and hugged his caddie after holing a 5-foot birdie putt at the 18th hole.

It was the Italian’s third victory in five starts. He also ended as runner-up in the other two tournaments.

Woods appeared ready to end his 10-year victory drought in majors midway through the round. The American topped the leaderboard until his hopes nosedived following a double-bogey at the 11th and another dropped stroke at the next hole.
