MONTY’S MAR­VEL­LOUS YEAR

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Hats Off -

Colin Mont­gomerie added the John Ja­cobs Trophy for win­ning the Euro­pean Se­nior Tour Or­der of Merit to his bulging trophy cab­i­net of eight Euro­pean Tour Or­der of Merit ti­tles (be­tween 1993 and 2005) and 44 world­wide tour­na­ment vic­to­ries. The 51-year-old won four times in 2014, in­clud­ing two Amer­i­can ma­jors, the Se­nior US Open and Se­nior PGA, and was sec­ond to Langer in the Se­nior Bri­tish Open. Monty be­came the quick­est player in Euro Se­nior Tour his­tory to win five times, achieved in just 10 events, and set a new Or­der of Merit record of €624 543 to beat Carl Ma­son’s 2007 ef­fort of €412 376. The Scot also made his 600th Euro­pean Tour ap­pear­ance at the Turk­ish Air­lines Open in Novem­ber.
