(AP) While Phil Mickelson was hoisting the claret jug on the 18th green to roars and applause, Lee Westwood was about 40 yards away in the corner of a press tent, explaining how yet another major championship got away from him.


"I wanted to be there on the 18th green right now, that's pretty obvious," Westwood said, briefly turning his eyes to a nearby TV screen to see Mickelson parading the trophy.


Seeking a first major and to wipe away his "nearly man" tag, Westwood began the final round of the British Open with a two-stroke lead. But he shot a 4-over 75 to finish four behind Mickelson, tied for third with Ian Poulter and Adam Scott.


"I'm not too disappointed," Westwood said. "I don't really get disappointed with golf anymore."
