Francesco Molinari's safety-first approach paid dividends as the Italian clinched The Open Championship on a dramatic, see-saw final day at Carnoustie.

On a day where prevailing winds made life difficult for the leaders, Molinari's tactical masterclass yielded a 69 that was enough to reach eight under for the tournament and triumph by two strokes.

The manner of Molinari's victory — his scorecard included 16 pars, two birdies and no bogeys — was even more impressive in the face of failed challenges from overnight co-leader Jordan Spieth, playing partner Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

Many had tipped Spieth, who led with Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele after 54 holes, to defend the Claret Jug he won in dramatic style at Royal Birkdale 12 months ago, but he failed to recover from a poor front nine.
