Colin Montgomerie has described defending his US Senior PGA Championship title as ‘obviously the highlight of my season’ as he reflected on his second successful year in the senior ranks.


The Scot could have added to his senior major haul this year, too, as he came close in both the US Senior Open Championship and the Senior Open Championship, finishing second and third, but he was happy to have been able to get one over on his ‘old nemesis’ Bernhard Langer.

“He never knows when he’s beaten and he never gives you an inch,” said Monty. “To go head to head with him in the final round and come out on top was very pleasing.

“It was very special to win the Travis Perkins Masters for a third time and obviously to finish with another victory in Mauritius was the perfect end to the season. So when I look back on this year, those will be the standout memories for me.”
'The Senior Open is very much on my radar' - Colin Montgomerie on his aims for 2016

Montgomerie was speaking after he lifted the MCB Tour Championship and became the first player to retain the John Jacobs Trophy, the European Seniors Tour order of merit title, since fellow Scot Sam Torrance did so in 2006.

Looking ahead to next season, he’s set his sights once again on the majors and retaining his European Seniors Tour order of merit title for a third consecutive year.

“Looking ahead to next season, I guess that’s the main focus,” added the 52-year-old. “The Senior Open is very much on my radar, because it’s the only Senior major missing from my collection and of course it’s being held in Scotland. But for now, I’m going to pack away the clubs, enjoy a month off and then get ready for the new season.”
