It's all Dunhill for Monty

Day 150 without playing golf

The golf career of Colin Montgomerie is on an upswing. Yesterday Montgomerie rolled in a four foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland by a stroke. It was Monty’s first golf victory on his native soil since 1999.

The win moved Montgomerie into the top 20 in the world rankings and into second place on the European Tour money list behind U.S. Open champion Michael Campbell.

Coming on the heels of this summer’s second place finish in the British Open at St. Andrews, Monty called Dunhill the most important victory of his career.

Does this portend more good things for Mr. Montgomerie? Will he ever win on the other side of "the pond"?
