Golf: Molinari 'speechless' after Ryder Cup heroics


(ANSA) - Rome, October 1 - Italy's Francesco Molinari said
he was struggling to find words to express his joy after helping
Europe clinch arguably the most dramatic Ryder Cup ever by
holding Tiger Woods to a tie in the last singles match.
The halved match enabled Europe to triumph 14.5-13.5 and
complete a remarkable comeback after they trailed 10-6 going
into the final day on Sunday.
"I'm truly speechless," said Molinari, who also helped
Europe win the competition two years ago when his brother
Edoardo was part of the team too.
"I know that's what everyone says when things like this
happen, but frankly this was extraordinary.
"I took on Woods remembering that the last time (in the
singles match-up against him in 2010) it went quite badly even
though I played well.
"This time I wanted to give my best and then see what the
results were. At the end of the match I had a few chances to go
one up, but the draw was perfectly OK, especially in the light
of what it was worth".
The half point Molinari earned against Woods in singles was
his only contribution to Europe's score at the 2012 Ryder Cup.
