They made history... twice... when they won the OMEGA Mission Hills World Cup last November.
Francesco and Edoardo Molinari were the first pair of brothers AND the first Italians to ever win that event. And this week they'll add another page to their historical legacy...at the Accenture Match Play Championship... when they become the first set of brothers to take part in a World Golf Championships event.
Both acknowledge that it's great to have a brother along on tour. They exchange ideas on their games, practice together... and always have someone to have dinner with.
Of course it would be awesome to see Francesco and Edoardo meet in the finals of the Sam Snead bracket... which actually could happen. However, each would need to win his first three matches, starting with Stewart Cink for Edoardo, and Zach Johnson for Francesco.
So a Moliari vs Moliari match is kind of a long shot... but it's fun to imagine the possibility and it's a good opportunity for American golf fans to get more familiar with these rising stars of global golf who'll both be back on US soil in April for the Masters.
