“It’s the golden generation. We have eight Major Championship between us..” McDowell on the success of McIlroy, Padraig Harrington, Darren Clarke and himself in recent Majors

“Everybody looks at you as second and they want to make it a negative. Not at all. I felt like I played well.” Sergio Garcia remains upbeat despite being beaten by McIlroy
