His debut in Augusta was in a white suit, in 2006, as a caddy for his brother Edoardo (on the field as holder of the US Amateur Championship title).
Francesco Molinari and Tiger Woods
All alongside the legend of all time, Tiger Woods, reigning champion at the time.
This is how Francesco Molinari met "The Masters", scheduled this year from Thursday 8 to Sunday 11 April. Thirteen years after that special experience, the Turin champion touched perhaps the greatest feat of his career.
In 2019 he stroked the title, then closing the competition in fifth place and opening the way, due to some decisive errors on the "Amen Corner", right in Woods. From that moment the climb to the top of the world ranking for the Piedmontese has stopped.
And now at the Augusta National "Laser Frankie", against all odds, he will try to take what he only touched two years ago. Before winning 15 major titles, Tiger Woods was the individual national champion while representing Stanford at the 1996 NCAA tournament.
He also won three straight U.S. Amateur titles, the last two of which came when he was enrolled at the school. Two weeks ago, the 15-time major champion announced he is back home and continuing his recovery. “Happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery.
I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks”. On Saturday night, he made his second public comment following his accident. He congratulated Tsubasa Kajitani, who one the Augusta National Women’s Amateur in a playoff.
"Congrats to Tsubasa Kajitani on winning the @anwagolf with an amazing playoff finish. Enjoy the special moment, and good luck to all of the kids tomorrow in the @DriveChipPutt", Woods said. There is an update about Tiger Woods accident.
The Los Angeles County sheriff says detectives have determined what caused Tiger Woods to crash his SUV last month in Southern California but would not release details Wednesday, citing unspecified privacy concerns for the golf star.
"A cause has been determined, the investigation has concluded. We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel. There’s some privacy issues on releasing information on the investigation so we’re going to ask them if they waive the privacy and then we will be able to do a full release on all the information regarding the accident.
We have all the contents of the black box, we’ve got everything,” Villanueva said. “It’s completed, signed, sealed and delivered. However, we can’t release it without the permission of the people involved in the collision", Sheriff Alex Villanueva said during a live social media event Wednesday in response to a question posed by The Associated Press.
