CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) _ Colin Montgomerie won't win his first major at this year's British Open.

The 36-year-old Scot _ Europe's No. 1-ranked player the last six years _ shot a 5-over 76 in Friday's second round, failing to capitalize on lighter winds than Thursday when he opened with a 74.

``I'm afraid this is gone now,'' said Montgomerie, one of the top players never to have won a major. ``I'm out of the tournament now and I look forward to the U.S. PGA.''

Montgomerie, who has missed the cut in five of the last seven British Opens, should make it this time. But it was his bad temper that got the best of him during the round, and he declined to show up for an interview afterwards.

A three-putt bogey on No. 1 set the tone. Two holes, later a fan with a camera was told by the Scot to put it away. On the fourth he berated an entire camera crew.

``You need a break, we need a break _ go away and have a coffee,'' he said. ``We're under enough pressure without you lot.''

Further bogeys at Nos. 7 and 8 landed him with a 3-over 39 at the turn.

Montgomerie did birdie the 10th and 14th, but he also bogeyed the 11th and then had three more in a row from the 15th, his mood getting worse all the time.

``I didn't capitalize on my draw,'' he added. ``I was struggling _ I didn't play well and got no luck.''
