Molinari wins in Florida with spectacular bogey free 64, says it was best putting day of his career

Francesco Molinari clinched an unlikely two-stroke victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational when he stormed home with a closing eight-under-par 64 in Florida.The British Open champion enjoyed his “best putting day ever” which he capped off by sinking a 45-foot birdie at the difficult par-four 18th at Bay Hill in Orlando.

The usually low-key Italian raised his right arm in the air with his index finger outstretched to hail his final putt.Molinari posted a 12-under 276 total and, after a two-hour wait in the clubhouse, celebrated his third PGA Tour victory when none of the overnight frontrunners could match his total.English overnight leader Matthew Fitzpatrick shot 71 to claim second place on 10-under.Defending champion Rory McIlroy carded 72 for equal sixth, four strokes behind Molinari.
