New Open champion Francesco Molinari is hoping his Carnoustie success can inspire his older brother, Edoardo, to regain the sort of form that earned him two victories in Scotland.
Woods stumbled with a double bogey on No. 11.
'He knows how hard I've been working to get here so I think he felt the same proudness I felt yesterday.' Molinari revealed the Claret Jug had spent the night on his bedside table, although he did not get much sleep as he celebrated his first major title. That would have been too much to expect even from Tiger Woods, perhaps the supreme competitor in golf of modern times.
"I'm going to handle him the way I do everyone else", Furyk said Monday before boarding a flight for the Canadian Open. "That was a real positive for me, and it renewed the love of the Open for me".
Molinari ended a compelling four-day drama on eight-under 276 - the lowest combined score in the eight Carnoustie Opens.
The Northern Irishman eagled the 14th at Carnoustie to move into a share of the lead but he finished two shots behind victor Francesco Molinari.
Tiger Woods has joined Kevin Chappell and Francesco Molinari for company on -6, after making a fine birdie on the fourth hole.
The Americans have been long time favourites to win the Ryder Cup, since winning the last edition two years ago in such dominant fashion at Hazeltine.
Sacha Baron Cohen Prank Forces Georgia State Rep. Jason Spencer to Resign
After a few days of reflection, however, Spencer has made a decision to resign, effective July 31, CNN reported Wednesday. And finally, Mr Spencer was told he could intimidate terrorists by pulling down his trousers and exposing his buttocks.
The "where I was" referred to the years of debilitating back pain that was finally solved by a spinal fusion last April, allowing him to resume his career after four years of severely-curtailed appearances. And Woods played a crucial role in all three of those tournaments, so that further helps to show his impact on the ratings.
Schauffele got closest to Molinari in the end and did so by opting not to look at any leaderboards and shutting out everything around him.
"I know that it's going to sting for a little bit here, but given where I was to where I'm at now, blessed".
"He's like, 'He hasn't been in this position in 10 years, and you've been here how many times in the last three years?' He was throwing it back at me", Spieth said. "So there's going to be a lot of European guys vying for his partnership in foursomes at the Ryder Cup".
"Not the Tiger that Phil (Mickelson) and Ernie (Els) and those guys had to deal with, " McIlroy said. I played the way I wanted to play this week.
Furyk said a big part of his decision on captain's picks would be matching players with the course at Le Golf National, where the matches will be played.
"I did everything the way I thought I needed to do it to win the championship", Tiger said.
