Molinari wins Scottish by 3 shots over Clarke
LUSS, Scotland — Edoardo Molinari of Italy claimed his first European Tour victory at the Scottish Open, shooting a 3-over 74 to beat Darren Clarke by three shots. Molinari finished at 12-under 272.
Clarke, of Northern Ireland, had begun the day a shot behind Molinari but had a 76. Frenchman Raphael Jacquelin closed with a 68 to place third at 8 under.
Clarke’s consolation was that in finishing second he claimed a late entry into the British Open, which starts at St. Andrews on Thursday.
