MONTY’S MARVELLOUS YEAR
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.
