A Legend of the game, Colin Montgomerie has enjoyed an incredible career in golf which now also includes nine wins on the Legends Tour.

Having been runner-up in five Major’s throughout his younger years, Monty has claimed three Senior Major’s since turning 50 – the Senior PGA championship in 2014 and 2015 as well as the US Senior Open in 2014. He would win the Legends Tour Order of Merit in both 2014 and 2015 too.
In 2015 he would win the Travis Perkins Masters for a third successive year before going on to claim the MCB Tour Championship too.
He personifies European golf – an engaging, entertaining, emotional player, Colin Montgomerie has been a star attraction in the sport for over three decades.
The Scot won 31 DP World Tour events during a 25-year stint on the circuit, the most by any British player and he would be crowned Europe’s number one player with an Order of Merit title eight times, including seven in a row from 1993 to 1999. He spent more than 400 weeks in the top ten of the Official World Golf Rankings, made 632 appearances on the DP World Tour and was named their Rookie of the Year in 1988.
While he never seemed quite as comfortable playing in the USA, Monty loved to play against them in the Ryder Cup! An on-course leader, who relished that role, he would line up in eight consecutive editions of the team event from the “War on the Shore” at Kiawah Island in 1991 through to the K Club victory in Dublin in 2006. He took 23.5 points from his 36 matches and was never beaten in a Sunday singles match.
He added significantly to his legendary status on the Tour with his successful Ryder Cup captaincy in 2010 at Celtic Manor, inspiring his European team to win the trophy back – by a single point in a rain-soaked event which went to Monday finish.
Monty was a master at hitting fairways and greens, his trademark fade shot worked to great effect to ensure he was devastatingly consistent throughout his career. Off the golf course, Monty, who was awarded the OBE in 2004 and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2013, has never been short of an opinion or two, one of the sport’s most quotable players.
