GOLFTV signs Open champ Molinari to exclusive deal
He may have blown his shot at US Masters glory, but British Open champion Francesco Molinari lost few fans with his plucky display for most of the four days at Augusta before succumbing to Tiger Woods.
Now Molinari has signed a new deal with GOLFTV which will see the Carnoustie champion produce a range of exclusive content for the live and on-demand video streaming service.

It seems GOLFTV subscribers will be able to follow the super cool Italian closer than ever before with unique behind-the-scenes access at PGA TOUR events.
Italy’s first-ever major champion will give GOLFTV an unprecedented view into his tournament preparations and provide exclusive post-round reactions at select PGA TOUR events.
“It’s an exciting time for golf and for me personally, so I’m proud to play a part in their mission to become the digital home of golf around the world. I can’t wait to share my insights, reactions and opinions on GOLFTV.”
“It’s going to be great for the fans to see what I do, and give an insight on my team behind-the-scenes and all the stuff that we do to show up on Thursday morning ready to go and try and win a golf tournament.”
GOLFTV plans to also produce an exclusive video instruction series with Molinari, in which the World No. 7 will share insights into the techniques and practice routines that have helped him win 10 worldwide titles and become the first European player to win five out of five matches in a single Ryder Cup.
As part of the arrangement, Molinari, who eventually finished in a tie for fifth behind Woods, will sport the GOLFTV logo on his staff bag at all tournaments.
