Molinari finally getting comfortable

Francesco Molinari's week is getting a lot better.

After struggling through a final-round 75 on Sunday at the Spanish Open and suffering through jet lag for most of the early part of the week, Molinari posted a bogey-free 65 on Friday to get himself to 11 under halfway through THE PLAYERS.

"Sunday in the Spanish Open wasn't really the best day possible," he said. "So I went away with a bad feeling. But I knew the game was ready, and there was nothing wrong with the swing."

Molinari started Friday with three consecutive birdies. He also sprinkled birdies on Nos. 9, 11, 13 and 16.

"I really love the golf course as soon as I saw it," he said. "You have to play every single shot you have in the bag. And I'm just enjoying myself." -- Mark Spoor
