European Ryder Cup: Francesco Molinari
Francesco Molinari will be making his 2nd appearance in the Ryder Cup. In 2010 he was partnered with his brother, Edoardo, going 0-2-1 overall. This year he will be looking to play better as he has improved his ball striking and short game. On the European Tour this season Molinari ranks 2nd in greens in regulation, 23rd in driving accuracy, and 10th in scrambling. These are all crucial skills a Ryder Cup player needs to be successful. The only thing to worry about Molinari is his driving distance which could be a problem at Medinah because of its big length. Look for Molinari to pair with a long hitter to offset his lack of driving distance.
