Colin Montgomerie eager for Woburn return

2014 05 Monty

Colin Montgomerie has pledged to defend his Travis Perkins Masters crown on August 29, after he won the event at Woburn last year, his first on the Senior Tour.


Monty captured his maiden senior’s victory in style winning the tournament by six-shots and finishing 10-under-par. As well as it being the Scotsman’s inaugural win as a senior it was also Montgomerie’s first for six-years, and he is eager to defend his crown.
"There’s a great camaraderie, but we all still want to win."

“It was fantastic to get my first victory so soon in my Senior Tour career. Getting your debut win on any tour is a very special moment, so I’m very much looking forward to going back to Woburn to defend my title,” said Montgomerie.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time on the tour so far – seeing some familiar faces I haven’t seen for quite a while has been a real treat. There’s a great camaraderie, but we all still want to win – and hopefully I can come out on top again at Woburn in August.”

Since Colin Montgomerie triumphed at the Travis Perkins Masters his form has gone from strength to strength. He finished in a tie for fourth place in the Russian Open Golf Championship and took sixth in the season-ending MCB Tour Championship.

This year his fine form has continued on the over-50s circuit with an impressive run of top-ten finishes on the US Champions Tour followed by a historic maiden senior major triumph last week, when Monty held off Tom Watson and Bernhard Langer to win the US Senior PGA Championship.
"Colin Montgomerie's debut win in last year’s Travis Perkins Masters was definitely one of the highlights of the season."

Andy Stubbs, managing director of the European Senior Tour, is delighted to see Colin Montgomerie heading back to Woburn.

Colin Montgomerie's debut win in last year’s Travis Perkins Masters was definitely one of the highlights of the season, so it’s great for everyone involved with the tournament that he’ll be returning to Woburn to defend his title,” said Stubbs.
