Singapore: Tiger-tamer Francesco Molinari will be looking to put the icing on the cake of a tremendous season with victory at next week's US$6 million Barclays Singapore Open. His brother Edoardo, on the comeback trail after a three-month injury layoff, will join him in the stellar field at Sentosa Golf Club from November 8-11. The siblings, who teamed up to win the World Cup of Golf for Italy in 2009, face a formidable challenge with world number one and Race to Dubai leader Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland, three-times winner Adam Scott of Australia and American great Phil Mickelson the main drawcards in Asia's richest National Open. Francesco Molinari was the last man out for Europe in the Ryder Cup singles at Medinah and halved his match with Tiger Woods to give his team outright victory over the United States by 14 ½ - 13 ½. He clinched his place in the team after a good run of form on the European Tour including victory at the Reale Seguros Open de Espana in May and runner-up finishes in the Alstom Open de France and Scottish Open. Currently lying sixth on the Race to Dubai with earnings of 1,816,113 Euros, Francesco Molinari can close the gap on leader McIlroy by lifting the US$1 million (773,926 Euros) winner's purse at the Barclays Singapore Open.
