MONTY’S MA­JOR MESS UP

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

Many re­mem­ber Phil Mick­el­son’s col­lapse in the 2006 US Open at Winged Foot. But Colin Mont­gomerie’s fin­ish was equally tragic. He birdied the 71st hole, snaking in a 60foot putt for a share of the lead. Then on the fi­nal hole, he fat­ted a 7-iron ap­proach, pitched long and three-putted for a dou­ble bo­gey. As it turned out, a par would have won. Geoff Ogilvy took the ma­jor in­stead.
