(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 16 – Francesco Molinari says his year-long
slump in form may be turning after his recent top ten finishes
in California but he still has a long way to go to make this
year’s team for the Ryder Cup, where he was Europe’s star player
in 2018, the year he also won the British Open.
    Molinari is currently 65th on the European points list and 54th
on the world’s points list after finishing eighth at The
American Express and 10th at the Farmers Insurance, before
slipping back to 59th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, dropping
him down from 105th to 107th in the world rankings led by Dustin
    He told GolfDigest it had been a tough road back from throwing
away a last-round lead in the 2019 Masters, which might have
sealed his place as the pre-eminent European golfer currently
    And he also said he will have to make up some distance to make
the Ryder Cup team, having struggled to adjust to a move to the
US from London during COVID-enforced downttime last year..
    “To be honest, I’m so far back now without playing last year
that I haven’t even looked where I’m at,” he told the golfing
    “I’ve got a long, long way in front of me, but hopefully I’ll
play well enough. But yeah, at the moment, a long way down the
line. I can’t deny, obviously I’d love to be there.”
Next up for the 38-year-old from Turin is The Genesis, where he
will be relaunching his bid to get back into the world’s top
100. (ANSA).
