Edoardo Molinari

Edoardo was born in Turin to Micaela, a now retired architect, and Paolo Molinari, a dentist. He began to accompany his father to the golf course at age eight. Molinari speaks fluent English and Spanish in addition to Italian. In spring 2012, he married his longtime girlfriend, Anna Roscio, at a church ceremony in Turin. Roscio caddied for Molinari at the 2010 Masters Par-3 Tournament. Denis Pugh, of London, serves as a swing coach to both Molinari brothers. He postponed retirement to work with the Molinari brothers, and he helped to rebuild Edoardo's swing, moving from hitting predominantly draws to fading the ball.
Molinari is nicknamed "Dodo" because his younger brother, Francesco, could not pronounce "Edoardo" as a child. He continues to live in Turin and to represent his home club, Circolo Golf Torino. His interests include the Juventus Football (soccer) club and the Internet. He is considered one of the most emotional players on the European Tour.] He is also considered very popular with his fellow competitors on tour, many of whom advocated his selection to the 2010 European Ryder Cup team.
Molinari is now working with Irish caddie Colin Byrne, who has earned 20 wins with other golfers such as South African major champion Retief Goosen.
During a distinguished amateur career, Molinari won several national championships. The undisputed highlight of his amateur career came in 2005, when he became the first Italian and the first Continental European to win the U.S. Amateur. He claimed the title by holing a 25-foot birdie putt on the 33rd hole to win 4 & 3 over the American Dillon Dougherty. As a result of that victory, Molinari qualified to play in the 2006 U.S. Masters, U.S. Open and The Open Championship. His younger brother Francesco, caddied for him at that year's Masters.
Molinari turned professional in 2006, after graduating from the Polytechnic University of Turin with a degree in engineering. In 2007 he won the Club Colombia Masters and the Tusker Kenya Open on Europe's developmental Challenge Tour. The two victories and his consistent play led to a 16th place finish on the season-long money list. That success enabled him to play on the European Tour during the 2008 season. Molinari had a tough year due to a wrist injury, and he was unable to retain his playing privileges in 2009.
Molinari returned to the Challenge Tour in 2009, where he was again successful, earning his third professional title at the Piemonte Open in May, in his home town of Turin. He also won the Kazakhstan Open in September and the Italian Federation Cup in October. He also came 2nd in the Club Colombia Masters, the Scottish Hydro Challenge, the Trophee du Golf de Geneve and the ECCO Tour Championship. He topped the Challenge Tour money list in 2009 with record earnings of ?242,979, almost ?100,000 more than the previous high total.
On 22 November 2009, Molinari won On the Japan Golf Tour at the Dunlop Phoenix Tournament in Miyazaki by defeating 2008 European Tour Order of Merit winner Robert Karlsson of Sweden by sinking a four-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole after the two tied in regulation play. Molinari was the first Italian winner on the Japan Golf Tour.
On 29 November 2009, Molinari partnered his younger brother Francesco to lead Italy to their first World Cup win at the Omega Mission Hills World Cup outside Shanghai, China. Edoardo leapt joyously around the 18th green after sinking the winning putt. This was the first win in the event by brothers and the first Italian victory in the event, generating significant coverage in the Molinari brothers' homeland.
During 2009, Molinari's Official World Golf Ranking rose from 753 to 48.
Enjoyed a stunning 2010 season, having stepped up to the European Tour after winning the 2009 Challenge Tour Rankings, with two victories and a Ryder Cup debut. Clinched The Barclays Scottish Open in July 2010 and then won the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in August to force his way into the Ryder Cup team as a Captain's pick. Molinari's brother Francesco also earned a place on the European team through the points list. The Molinaris are the first brothers to compete together in a Ryder Cup side since Bernard and Geoffery Hunt played for the Great Britain and Ireland side in the 1963 edition of the biennial team competition.
Molinari's successful 2010 campaign saw him rise to a career-high of fourteenth in the Official World Golf Ranking. Molinari finished the 2010 season ranked 11th on the Race to Dubai, formerly known as the European Tour Order of Merit. He finished the year ranked eighteenth in the world.
2011 Notes: Edoardo spent the first half of the year racking up middle of the pack finishes, with an 11th place finish at the Masters as his lone highlight. Only had two top-tens, T-8th at the Volvo Golf Champions and T-5th at the Barclays Singapore Open. Finished the year 46th on the Race to Dubal. Molinari fell out of the world ranking top 50 by the end of the season.
2012 Notes: An old injury to Edoardo's left wrist led to tendonitis and ultimately required tendon surgery in June. His 2012 season was interrupted by a three-month layoff returning to action at the BMW Italian Open in September. He achieved only one top-10 finish on the European Tour, 6th at the Trophee Hassan II, and qualified for only one major, the Masters Tournament. Molinari dropped to 86th on the 2012 Race to Dubai with earnings of euros280,976 from 17 events. He fell out of the top 200 of the Official World Golf Ranking, as well.
2013 Notes: Molinari started the season with a series of missed cuts, but had a strong 2nd at the Maybank Malaysian Open. At the BMW PGA Championship, won by his countrymate Matteo Manassero, Molinari finished T-19th with two consecutive birdies on the 71st and 72nd holes. He had to withdraw from the BMW International Open and the Irish Open for persistent pain in his left thumb. After missing the cut at the Alstom Open de France shut it down and had surgery to repair the thumb. Came back at the South African Open and struggled in his season ending four events.
2014 Notes: In 31 events made the cut in 24 of them, had a T-9th at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and had his best finish with a runner-up finish at the Irish Open, which got him his exemption into the Open Championship. Finished T-7th at Hoylake, his third top-ten of 2014. Added one more with a T-4th at the Handa Wales Open. Finished 40th in the Race to Dubai.
In 2015 has struggled not only with his game but again with his wrist, that he had surgery on in 2013. In Spain he hit the side of his hand and for days after was a struggle to grip the club. Was forced to withdraw from the BMW PGA Championship and still hasn't played well. For the year has one top-25, T-15th at the Tshwane Open.
