Open Championship Round 4 grades

Garcia did just about everything he could do to catch McIlroy on Sunday. He shot a 66 that was marred only by a bogey at the 15th hole, where he took two shots to get out of a greenside bunker. For a man who said two years ago that he didn't believe he had what it took to win a major, his week at Hoylake is proof that there are several major wins in his future.

Jordan Spieth    World Ranking: No. 10 | Score: 71-75-67-73

The 20-year-old Texan struggled Sunday to a final-round 73. In four rounds, he never birdied the par-5 18th hole, which ranked as the third-easiest hole during the tournament. Still, Spieth's 2-under finish was a respectable showing in just his second Open Championship.

Martin Kaymer    World Ranking: No. 12 | Scores: 73-72-72-79

The reigning U.S. Open champion struggled to a 79 in the final round to finish 70th. Sunday was the first time all week that the 29-year-old German was unable to birdie one of the four par-5s.

Phil Mickelson    World Ranking: No. 13 | Scores: 74-70-71-68

On Sunday, the five-time major champion had his best round of the week with a 4-under 68. His lone bogey of the day came at the par-4 seventh hole. For the first time in the championship, Mickelson birdied all four of the par-5s. With a tie for 23rd, it was a reputable showing for the defending champion.

Rickie Fowler    World Ranking: No. 25 | Scores: 69-69-68-67
