After his Carnoustie collapse, Garcia eager to move on
Sergio Garcia believes he's over his disappointment at losing the Open Championship last month, and is ready to prove he's back to his old self. He's hitting the ball well, he says, and is hoping to get right back into contention in Tulsa.
TULSA, Okla. (PA) -- Sergio Garcia hopes to show this week that he is over what happened in the Open Championship at Carnoustie.
Beaten in a playoff by Padraig Harrington after leading by four early on the final day and by one standing on the final tee, Garcia admits it was tough to handle at first.
But after finishing the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a 67 -- on 6 over par, tied for 20th and 14 behind runaway winner Tiger Woods -- the Spaniard sounded more optimistic about the PGA Championship.

"It's been getting better every day," said Garcia. "The first day was really tough, but my head is starting to go a little bit more where I want it to be. I'm hitting the ball well and rolling the putter nicely. It's just a matter of getting it going.
"I had a good experience of leading (at the Open) round after round after round that I hope will help me. It was nice to feel that pressure constantly and play through it," he added. "I'm looking forward to getting into that position again."
