The oldest senior championship in Europe will this year enjoy the backing of one of the continent’s most successful golfers.

Eight-time European Tour Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie will be on hosting duty when the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship takes place at Trump International Golf Links Scotland at the end of July.

Peter Baker won the 2023 event, with record crowds watching the former Ryder Cup player claim victory by six shots in a season where he won four times and went on to take the season long MCB Road to Mauritius title as well.

Speaking about his new role, Montgomerie said: “I am thrilled and honoured to have become a host on the Legends Tour. Over 50’s golf brings together some great friendships and great competitiveness too, it is something I am immensely proud to be a part of.

“The strength of the Legends Tour comes from the players, and it is great to see how it has grown as a Tour over recent years since Ryan Howsam got involved.

“To be hosting the oldest Senior championship in Europe is a distinct privilege. The Staysure PGA Seniors Championship promises to be a fantastic event again this year, with it returning to Trump International Golf Links. The facilities are superb, and the course is incredible. It will provide a great test for the players, while displaying a stunning spectacle for those watching on.

“I cannot wait for the tournament week, where I will be doing my best to be a good host, while also focussing on competing against a very strong field.”

Phil Harrison, CEO of the Legends Tour, added: “Colin Montgomerie is a name synonymous with European golf and the success it has enjoyed over the past forty years. We are delighted to have Colin on board as a host on the Legends Tour as we look to take it to the next level and continue our growth over the past four years.

“Having a marquee name to host our flagship event makes things extra special. The Staysure PGA Senior Championship is a week which all our members want to be a part of. The return to Trump International Golf Links where we enjoyed such a great event in 2023 and now with Colin hosting makes it a week to savour this summer.”

We are thrilled to host The Staysure PGA Seniors Championship for a second year and can think of no better host for this fantastic tournament featuring so many great legends of the game.”

The Staysure PGA Seniors Championship will be staged at Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeenshire from July 31 to August 4 with several major champions among the names set to be confirmed over the coming days and weeks.
