When he was at the peak of his powers on the main Tours Colin Montgomerie couldn’t win a major title for love nor money.
Now, since moving into senior service, he’s won three in quick succession.It’s clearly a different ball game as far as Monty is concerned after he successfully defended his Senior PGA Tour Championship title yesterday.
The 51-year-old Scot shot a final round 69 to finish four clear of Mexican Esteban Toledo in Indiana, USA.
Monty registered a 2-under-par 70 on Saturday on the Pete Dye Course at French Lick resort, to take a three-shot lead into the final round.It is his third senior major championship triumph after successes in the 2014 Senior PGA and US Open.
Montgomerie said: “It was a difficult position to be in at the start of the day, being three ahead. I could never relax at all.”And very, very tiring mentally. Every shot had to be executed or you could be in trouble – that’s a test and a half.”
Former Masters and Open champion Sandy Lyle finished on +2 the tournament with Ian Woosnam 10 over and Sir Nick Faldo a further four shots back.
