Sergio Garcia taking positives from Open

Spain's Sergio Garcia insists that he is focusing on the positives from his performance at the Open after missing out on victory by two shots.

Sergio Garcia has said that he is focusing on the positives after finishing second at the Open at Hoylake this week.

The Spaniard began the day seven shots behind eventual winner Rory McIlroy, but closed the gap to two strokes by the end of the fourth round.

After finishing level with Rickie Fowler on 15-under, Garcia told Sky Sports News: "Everybody looks at you as second and they want to make it a negative. Not at all.

"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.

"Obviously there's some negative things and obviously my bogey on 15 is not nice, but I try to look at the positives. There's always a lot more positives than negatives and that to me is where I want to take it."

Garcia previously finished second at the tournament in 2007.
