The Open: Sergio Garcia hoping for a hat-trick of Spanish wins

"My mind's on The Open, don't worry".

"Yeah, it would be unbelievable", said Garcia, who finally broke his major drought at Augusta in April, when asked about continuing the run of Spanish success. In his 20 Opens since his debut at Lytham in 1996, Garcia has racked up an astonishing 10 top-10 finishes.

Sergio Garcia is due to get married next week but the Spaniard insists that planning his wedding is not getting in the way of his preparations for the British Open.

The Masters victor has also been inspired by the achievements of Spanish tennis stars Rafael Nadal, who won his 10th French Open title in April, and new Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza.

"It's so great to have not only that (Rahm and Cabrera Bello winning) but Muguruza winning at Wimbledon, too".

"Spanish sport is at a good stage". It's been up there for a while. It's been up there for a while, obviously with Rafa winning Roland Garros.

The Masters victor turns up for his 21st attempt at winning the game's greatest golf championship hoping to ride a Spanish wave to his first old Claret Jug. I want to say it's probably the winningest year we've had on Spanish golf, between the PGA Tour and the European Tour. And of course I could have won more, but I think the consistency I've had for the last 18, 19 years, is not that easy to do, and I think some people overlook that.

"But I've always said that consistency is one of my greatest attributes throughout my career. So we're going to try to keep it as much as possible".

"At the moment, the green jacket means more because I have it, but everybody knows how much I love the Open Championship and I would love to at least have one of them before I kind of hang up the boots". "But for Spanish golf it's been great". Obviously a lot depends on weather, but it is a solid golf course and I've managed to play here in '98 and 2008, and it is a golf course that I like.

Facing journalists at an Open is not traditionally Garcia's favourite pastime.

"I said right after winning the Masters (that) I don't think that things have changed. So we'll see how we're able to handle all of those".
