Tiger Woods' Round 4 highlights from Quicken Loans 2018

It was Molinari's second win of the year after the 35-year-old produced a similarly classy display to win the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth at the end of May.

"I rolled the ball well this week", he said. He was making a lot of putts on the front nine.

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. He is around the fringe of Ryder Cup qualifying, and the French Open was this week on the Ryder Cup course outside Paris.

But Molinari said his approach remained the same.

"It was a lot easier than I thought, " Molinari said with a wide grin.

Zac Blair's round of 66 and Ryan Armour's 68 kept them in the hunt at 11 under, with Ryan Landry one shot further back after a 65, and another American, Kevin Streelman, shooting a 67 to sit nine under.

Ancer has never been in the top 10 going into the final round in 22 previous starts.

"I'm glad I gave myself a chance", Woods said. "I finished three or four back of the playoff".

"What's Francesco's doing in phenomenal".

Woods, meanwhile, will need to make history if he wants to notch his first victory since 2013. Meanwhile, Woods finished the tournament strong after opening with a 70 in the first round.

"Francesco was phenomenal", Woods said.

Molinari called being a victor on the PGA TOUR "Amazing".

The Italian has played on two Ryder Cups and has won four times on the European Tour - including this year's BMW PGA Championship, that circuit's flagship event - but as this year progressed he found himself in a hard position. The course has no par 5s on the front nine, but there are two on the back nine. Meyer was once again, Mr. Consistency, as he shot, yet another round, of even par, to stay at -3, tied for 34th.

Molinari started the back nine with an eagle and four straight birdies to pull away from the pack, while at the same time Woods hit his first roadblocks of the day.

With victory all-but assured, Molinari missed a 12-foot birdie look at the 16th and posted a two-putt par at the next before closing his winning round by taking two attempts from eight feet for a closing par. He was in position to get closer until he missed a 6-foot birdie putt on No. 10, overcooked a simple chip at No. 11 that ran off the green onto the fringe, missed the fairway at No. 13 with an iron and then hit a 3-wood just over the green on the par-4 14th, chipping to 3 feet and missing the putt.

Woods dropped a 20-foot birdie putt at the par-4 seventh, then curled in a 28-footer for birdie at the par-4 eighth.

A spectacular chip-in and four putts beyond 15 feet were among his seven birdies, the 14-time Major victor sharing 11th on five-under 135 after 36 holes at TPC Potomac course, only four strokes behind United States co-leaders Brian Gay, Beau Hossler and Ryan Armour.

Starting the day at three-under, Lahiri celebrated his 31st birthday with a birdie on 10th, his first hole of the day.
