Edoardo Molinari 2.0

The Italian Ryder Cupper is changing the math on his career

Episode 164: Edoardo Molinari 2.0 The Golfer's Journal Podcast

Remember Edoardo Molinari? 2005 US Am winner, Ryder Cupper, and brother of Francesco? His playing career didn’t reach the heights some expected, but he has reinvented himself as a data wizard. And the newly minted Chief Data Strategist for Arccos and 2025 Ryder Cup Vice Captain for Team Europe can still play: He qualified for this week’s U.S. Open. Molinari joins host Tom Coyne to unpack his data tools that Viktor Hovland, Matthew Fitzpatrick and the rest of the European Ryder Cup side leaned on to thrash the U.S. last September, plus his thoughts on Pinehurst, and his “politically incorrect” opinions on golf in his native Italy.

While “Dodo” offers player-specific insights to his stable of golfers (which now stretches to some three dozen across the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and beyond), this conversation is chock-full of nuggets for the everyday golfer. If you subscribe to axioms like “keep it below the hole” and “find the right side of the fairway,” get ready to challenge your thinking.
