The 2005 U.S. Amateur champion will join his younger brother and major champion, Francesco, in this year's field after being among the top 10 points leaders previously not exempt in a three-event U.S. Open European Tour series during the four weeks leading up to Torrey Pines. Molinari defeated Dillon Dougherty, 4 and 3, in the 36-hole final of the U.S. Amateur at Merion Golf Club, becoming the first Italian to engrave his name on the Havemeyer Trophy. Francesco served as his caddie that week. Since turning professional, Molinari has amassed 10 worldwide victories, including three on the European Tour. His last title on that circuit was the 2017 Trophee Hassan II in Morocco. His best performance in a major is a tie for seventh in the 2014 Open Championship. Molinari represented Italy in four World Amateur Team Championships (1998, 2000, 2002 and 2004), and he played alongside his brother in the 2010 Ryder Cup for Europe.
