Rickie Fowler delivered on his vast potential by claiming his first PGA Tour win at the Wells Fargo championship with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff against Briton Rory McIlroy and fellow American D.A. Points at Quail Hollow.Italian Ryder Cup player Francesco Molinari won the Spanish Open in Seville on Sunday, turning a four-stroke deficit into a three-shot win in stunning fashion.

Overnight leader Simon Dyson of England slumped to a 76 despite opening the final round with two birdies, while Molinari had a tournament-best round of 65.

Seven birdies in the first 14 holes and then four closing pars were enough to see the 29-year-old home.
