Molinari eager to move on from Masters misery

17th April 2019, 18:28 by Gareth Freeman

Francesco Molinari hopes to bounce back from his disappointment at the Masters at this week's RBC Heritage.

Molinari held a two-shot lead heading into the back nine at Augusta but two double-bogeys saw his title bid unravel and he ended up in a tie for fifth as Tiger Woods claimed the Green Jacket.

The Italian is confident his final-round struggle won't impact his form ahead of his bid for glory at Harbour Town.

"The biggest challenge this week is to recover from last week," said Molinari, as reported by Sky Sports. "It was a draining week and I need to get some energies back.

"You're never quite sure exactly how long it's going to take [to recover]. But, yeah, I think it was pretty straightforward for me to kind of digest last week. My concern is just having the mental energies to perform this week and to be competitive against a really strong field.

"I'm going to have three weeks off after this week, so I'm going to have time at home to kind of reflect a bit more and analyse with a colder mind."
