Francesco Molinari: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Francesco and his brother Edoardo have been mainstays on the golf scene for years now, with Francesco ending the 2013-2014 PGA Tour season with the better results. He finished the season with only two top-10s, a T5 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by Mastercard and a T6 at The Players Championship. However, of his 12 PGA Tour starts, seven were in the top-25, and over time he accumulated enough points to get his PGA Tour card. The concern with Molinari, however, has nothing to do with his 2014 season. Instead, itís his lack of knowledge of PGA Tour venues. Because heís been a non-member since he started qualifying for majors, Molinariís PGA Tour schedule has consisted solely of the majors, the WGCs, and the events surrounding those such as Doral. However to be successful on the PGA Tour you need to perform well in all parts of the schedule, including at many venues Molinari has never seen before. Thereís a reason why many guys win in their second and third year on tour: that process takes time. Expect the same for Molinari.
Molinari is a top player on the European Tour, but that success has not translated to the PGA TOUR in recent years. Although he has made a good percentage of cuts, he's lacked the high-end finishes in the states. Expect more of the same this season with Molinari showing up here and there on the leaderboard, but not accomplishing much in the big picture.
Last year was a tale of three seasons for Molinari. The first was impressive with a Top-15 at the Honda Tournament of Champions and a Top-3 at the WGC Cadillac Championship. The second was horrifying with a string of missed cuts that lasted from the Masters through the British Open. The final act was just OK with no missed cuts but no Top-10s, either. Of all the acts of his 2011 season, the middle one was the most puzzling as Molinari is too good to miss that many cuts in a row. Expect more consistency this season and maybe an appearance on a Sunday leaderboard at a major.
The other Molinari brother fared about the same as his brother, Edoardo, last season, but without the top-3 finish. Francesco Molinari's top finish on the PGA TOUR last season was a T9 at the Players Championship. Much like his brother, though, Francesco had little success at the four majors. He'll mostly play in Europe in 2011.
Molinari could be a nice sleeper pick. He played well at the U.S. Open, the British Open and the PGA Championship where he earned a top-10. He capped the season with a win at the Omega Mission Hills World Cup, but that was an unofficial event. Still, a win is a win and will certainly help his confidence. Francesco (OWGR #38) and brother Edoardo (OWGR #48) will be playing in the 2010 Masters based on their world rankings at the end of 2009.
