On Sunday at Carnoustie, the leaderboard was stacked with big names, including three of golf’s most famous: Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, and Tiger Woods – three historic golfers who transcend the sport. Yet it was Francesco Molinari – a name unfamiliar to the casual golf fan – who claimed victory at the 2018 Open Championship.
