Francesco Molinari (born 8 November 1982) is an Italian professional golfer. He is a two-time winner on the European Tour and was a member of the 2010 European Ryder Cup team.

Molinari was born in Turin, Italy, and is the younger brother of Edoardo. As an amateur, he won the Italian Amateur Stroke Play Championship twice, and the Italian Match Play Championship in 2004. He turned professional later that year.

At the 2004 European Tour qualifying school, Molinari earned full playing status for the 2005 season, in which he ultimately finished in eighty-sixth place in the tour's Order of Merit standings.
