Golf – Molinari eyes repeat triumph

Francesco Molinari is hoping to win the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament for the second time in his career this week. The Italian was the surprise winner of the event seven years ago and is in a buoyant mood heading into the action at Sheshan International. The 34-year-old, who edged out Lee Westwood by one shot seven years ago, said: "It's always nice to come back - obviously I have good memories here. The course hasn't changed much since then. I'm looking forward to a nice week." Molinari is 28/1 with bet365 to win the WGC-HSBC Champions outright and 11/1 to finish as the top European player.
