Sergio Garcia: Has played 54 majors without winning
Sergio Garcia did not mince his words after his closing round of 71 at the Masters.
The Spaniard is still waiting for that elusive first major title - and he has never come closer than in 1999 at Medinah when he finished runner-up to Tiger Woods in the USPGA as a teenager.
At 32, he is now 0-for-54 in the majors.
He finished in the top 12 at the last three majors of 2011, and went into the third round at Augusta National a stroke behind the leaders.
But he took himself out of contention with a 75 that left him eight strokes back, and then told Spanish reporters: "That's the reality. I'm not good enough and today I know it. I've been trying for 13 years and I don't feel capable of winning. I don't know what happened to me. Maybe it's something psychological.
"After 13 years, my chances are over. I'm not good enough for the majors. That's it."
Following a closing 71 for a two-under-par finish, just outside the top 10, he was asked if he really believed what he had said. "Do you think I lie when I talk?" he replied.
"Everything I say I say because I feel it. If I didn't mean it I couldn't stand here and lie - like a lot of guys do. If I felt like I could win I would do it.
"Unfortunately at the moment unless I get really lucky, I can't really play much better than I played this week."
