Edoardo Molinari (68-73-68—209)

After an encouraging opening round of 4-under 68 in this week’s Open Championship, Edoardo Molinari (Pictured by Getty Images) hit a speed bump in round two, posting a 1-over 73. He got the wheels back on track in round three with a second 68. At 7-under, he will begin Sunday’s final round nine strokes back.

Molinari is making his fifth Open Championship start this week, and first since 2011. His best finish in the event is a T27 at St. Andrews in 2010.

This marks Molinari’s first start on the PGA TOUR in the 2013-14 Season. He has made 14 starts on the European Tour this season, with runner-up honors at the Irish Open his best showing. He is a two-time winner on the European Tour.

Edoardo Molinari’s brother Francesco is also competing this week. Francesco matched his brother’s opening- round score of 68, but ensuing rounds of 70-75 have him at 3-under, and 13 strokes back.
