Molinari still trying to regain momentum lost at Augusta National

SHANGHAI – Francesco Molinari would love nothing more than to go back to that Sunday at Augusta National, the day Tiger Woods so famously became a Masters champion again when it could have just as easily belonged to him.

A tee shot in the water cost Molinari his two-shot lead.

A wedge that clipped a branch and found the water on No. 15 cost him a chance at a green jacket.

''I'm not the first guy that it happens to,'' Molinari said Wednesday.

What cost Molinari more than the worst kind of memory is the loss of momentum.
