CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) Francesco Molinari didn't get the loudest cheers for the best golf at British Open.

A bogey, double-bogey run at Nos. 5 and 6 let a handful of contenders squeeze past Spieth, who owns three major championships, and bogeys at two of the last four holes killed his chance of catching up. Read More...
