Francesco Molinari kept the coolest head in Carnoustie as he plotted a steady course through a wild afternoon of nail-biting tension at the British Open Sunday to become the first Italian to win a major.As overnight leaders Jordan Spieth, Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner endured a roller-coaster ride, Molinari carded 13 consecutive pars before making his move.He rolled in a birdie on the par-five 14th to move into the lead on seven-under. Molinari, playing in his 36th major, finished on eight-under 276, two shots ahead of Schauffele, Rose, McIlroy and Kisner.
