HOYLAKE, ENGLAND - Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

Sergio Garcia came up short again at a Major championship.

The 34-year-old played his heart out on Sunday at Hoylake, firing a six-under-par 66, good enough for a second-place tie with American Rickie Fowler but two strokes shy of winner Rory McIlroy’s 17-under-par total.

The world No. 9 has now gone winless in 61 Major championships, though he does have eight top-10 finishes.

“Everybody looks at you as second and they want to make it a negative. Not at all. Like I said before, I felt like I played well. I felt like I did almost everything I could. And there was a better player. It's as simple as that,” Garcia said after his round.
