Kuchar leaving Open disappointment behind

The Open Championship runner-up Matt Kuchar is putting the past behind him as he tees off at this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The American was one ahead with five to play at Royal Birkdale before Jordan Spieth went on a hot streak to claim the famous Claret Jug. 

But Kuchar is already looking ahead to the next round and a 'fresh start'…

"It is one of the great things about the game of golf…it's pretty easy to leave the past the past when Thursday gets here,” the 39-year-old told pgatour.com. 

"It's a whole new week and no one cares what you did last week. It's a fresh start.

"I did all I could last week and I had one guy out play me. To win a major championship… it's really exciting. To be so close and not win the event is a little bittersweet but I'm definitely going to take as many positives as possible."

Kuchar arrives at Glen Abbey this week, a course where he has fond memories, earning two top ten places in the recent past.
"I've enjoyed coming to Glen Abbey, I enjoy the course and I feel like I can manage my way around it pretty well," added the world number 12

"It's great to carry any momentum you can, but when you peg the tee into the ground Thursday, it doesn't matter what you did last week. Everyone starts at even par and you need to make the most out of this week that you can."
