Justin Thomas: Francesco Molinari is ‘hottest player on the planet’
The praise keeps rolling in for Francesco Molinari.
After the 35-year-old captured his first major with a win at The Open Championship on Sunday, colleague Justin Thomas called Molinari “the hottest player on the planet.”
What a round by @F_Molinari. Played with him Thursday-Friday, not surprised! Guy is the hottest player on the planet currently. Bogey free out there today is a championship round

The words could not be truer. Though he finished 25th at the US Open, Molinari won the BMW PGA Championship in May, the Quicken Loans National in late June/early July, finished second at the John Deere Classic last week, and won The Open.
