A gain at 14 saw him take the lead outright and a crunching drive down the last followed by an accurate wedge out of the right rough left a putt inside seven feet that he sank to seal victory.
Molinari raised his fist and shook it lightly before slamming it for emphasis.
Justin Rose continued his fine form at Carnoustie over the weekend with a final round of 69 to go to the clubhouse as the early leader on six under. I was calm - you know, as calm as you can be playing in the last round of a major close to the lead, playing with Tiger. "I knew that going in", he said. "I felt I was ready for the challenge". Molinari played the final 37 holes without a bogey.
In his prime, Woods could never be called the most endearing champion.
He had a one-shot lead until a double bogey on the 11th hole, a bogey on the next.
"The way Francesco played today was lovely", said Woods. Molinari has been a professional golfer since 2005 and a victor since 2006, but here at the age of 35, he's playing some of the best golf of his career.
No one in the final two groups was able to threaten Molinari. "But there can only be one victor. This time, it's me".
All of them made mistakes, big and small.
Playing in his traditional last-day red shirt, Woods continued to turn the screws. The roars for his two birdies could be heard from all corners of Carnoustie.
Woods said it felt like old times. The only thing they've seen is my struggles and the pain I was going through. Spieth hit into a gorse bush and made double bogey on the par-five sixth.
The 14-time Major victor went into the final round four shots adrift, but the wind conditions played havoc and at one point it looked like it was Woods' to lose.
And then there was Kisner, looking to go wire-to-wire. No. 11, with its "bad three-iron off the tee", its second shot that hit a green-side spectator in the cap, and its third shot that went up a slope toward the green but couldn't get there and chose to come back down, could provide particular wincing.
"He hit a lot of little handsome pitches too to basically kick-ins", said Woods.
But plagued by back problems and four surgeries starting in 2014, this was just his 10th major championship start in that time period.
CARNOUSTIE, Scotland - When Rory McIlroy made a birdie at the 11th hole Sunday, it seemed to him that he was back in contention at The Open.
With another tough save from off the green at the 16th, he didn't miss another shot.
On Saturday, Pepperell shot a 71 that left him frustrated. Molinari's tied ninth in 2013 was his best previous effort in nine prior attempts but he'd put the hours in.
The Italian also admitted he would probably need to change his flight home so he can celebrate becoming the first player from the country to win a major. Molinari was 12 and watching on TV when Costantino Rocca rolled in that putt across the Valley of Sin on the 18th at St. Andrews to force a playoff with John Daly in the 1995 British Open.
"I flinched, but I've had things like that happen a lot in my career with people who tried to time it". You're going to get some quirky bounces, and hopefully they go your way for the week. His two children, Sam and Charlie, aren't old enough to have witnessed how incredible Woods can really be on the final day of a major. "It's wonderful to stand here with the Claret Jug".
"I didn't play very well on the front". Westwood beat everyone else by nine shots in the HSBC Champions and lost by one to Molinari.
"Making a double there".
"It's the best birthday present that I could have had".
"Tiger himself was great today", said Molinari, who joked that he might make the headlines back in Italy given Ferrari did not win the German Grand Prix. 5 and 6 let a handful of contenders squeeze past Spieth, who owns three major championships, and bogeys at two of the last four holes killed his chance of catching up.

When I made the eagle on 14, it was tough to get close on 15, 16 and 17. "I don't really feel like it's a defeat", said McIlroy. But McIlroy produced just the sort of burst he has become renowned for. "For a while, I thought Tiger was going to win".
The day after his arrest, protestors took to the streets across the region calling for Qaisari's release and Dostum's return. Dostum had been undergoing medical treatment in Turkey, was now well and would resume work, the spokesman added.
