Molinari in a record runaway at final Quicken Loans National

Francesco Molinari is also at 13 under.

Despite a short birdie miss on 14, Woods said the new putter, "feels good".

On Sunday, he needed just 27 putts and made 125 feet worth, the most of the week.

The four majors in 2018 are weighted heavily in the U.S. Ryder Cup team points race, with winners receiving two points per $1,000 earned at the Masters, U.S. Open, Open Championship and PGA Championship, and all other players receiving 1.5 points per $1,000 earned. He also was No. 123 in the FedEx Cup, so Molinari made a decision to play the Quicken Loans National and the John Deere Classic in two weeks to improve his standing.

The European Ryder Cup veteran skipped this week's event at Le Golf National, where this year's Cup will be played in September, for a 121st US PGA start on a course he said suited his game perfectly.

"Seems like it was the right choice in the end", he said.

BBZero Tour model, with FIT Face Milling and a sight dot on the top, the world number 17 carded a bogey-free course record, eight under 62, to finish on a tournament record 21 under par.

Molinari carded eight-under-par 62 in the final round at TPC Potomac to become the first Italian victor on the United States-based circuit since Toney Penna in 1947.

"It wasn't anything that I haven't done in the past, I just wanted a little bit different look", said Landry. "I played great. The start of the back nine was incredible".

Woods shot a five-under 65 on Friday, equaling his lowest round of the season.

Tournament host Tiger Woods inched closer to a long-overdue first victory, shooting a closing 66 that included six birdies to share fourth place on 11-under par.

"I was only four back at the time when I made the turn, and so I thought that maybe if I got on the back nine, I shot 30 - maybe 29 - that would be enough, " Woods said. Evidently I'd have had to shoot 24 on the back nine. "What Francesco is doing out there is phenomenal".

Armour, third-place finisher Sung Kang (12-under 268), Ancer and Bronson Burgoon (tied for sixth at 10-under 270) earned exemptions to the British Open, which opens July 19 at Carnoustie.

He knew this because there were only so much space on the hills for thousands of fans, and many of them went a hole ahead to stake out a position.

A group after Ancer closed with a nine-foot birdie putt, 14-time major victor Woods found a bunker at 18 and missed an eight-foot par putt, taking his fourth bogey to shoot 68 and share 10th on 203. "I'm very proud of what I did".

USA players will continue to gain points in 2018 at every non-opposite PGA Tour event, WGC and major through the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive, concluding on August 12, 2018. And the putter was as scorching as weather that approached 100 degrees.

Molinari beat Lee Westwood by one shot, and no one else was closer than 10 shots in Shanghai. Each hole has its own name, and some of the more intriguing monikers include the ninth (Punchbowl), 10th (Principal's Nose), and the 15th (Eden) holes. He missed the 13th fairway and took bogey for the second straight day.
