The Open 2014

13th-20th July

Presented by

Sergio Garcia

"I'm not good enough to win. In 13 years I have come to the conclusion that I need to play for second or third place." So said Garcia after this year's Masters, following another major failure for the man who was once tipped to win multiple numbers of them. It's a sorry tale of a man who has been broken by the big occasion. He made his name finishing an exuberant second to Tiger Woods in the 1999 PGA Championship as a raw 19-year-old. He is still only 32, but it is the wounds that are now raw. The pain he felt when seeing a first Open title slip from his grasp at Carnoustie in 2007 has never really gone away. But that is merely the most famous of many near-misses. The flipside of this is that when Garcia is at his best he is simply sensational. His 11-shot win at the Castellon Masters at the end of 2011 was the third biggest winning margin in European Tour history. The problem is this: when Garcia contends, the questions get asked. He cannot avoid discussing his fears.
