Monty samples 'honking' Cup clash

Monty
COLIN MONTGOMERIE

When it comes to football, it's cliche but we all love the ‘magic’ of the Cup. And it appears 2010 Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie is no different.


The 52-year-old spent his Friday night in Paisley at a freezing St Mirren Park – but may have wished he hadn’t bothered after watching a Scottish Cup fourth round clash in which the Daily Record described the first half as ‘honking’.

We aren't sure who Montgomerie, a big football fan, was there supporting, but he saw Scottish Premiership outfit Partick Thistle progress 2-1 over hosts and Championship side St Mirren to ensure their place in the hat for the next round.

The 31-time European Tour winner is currently enjoying some downtime after clinching the Senior Tour Order of Merit at a canter after his win at the MCB Tour Championship.
