Yesterday was Colin Montgomerie’s birthday. He turned 50, which means we’ll be seeing him on the Champions Tour soon. Very soon. As in this coming weekend, when he debuts at the Constellation Senior Players Championship in Pittsburgh. The member of golf’s Hall of Fame—with 31 Euro Tour victories, eight Euro Tour Order of Merit (money list) titles, and an outstanding 16-7-5 record in six Ryder Cups—said he’s excited to be “competing on more of a level playing field.” Searching for his first tournament win since 2007, Monty will bounce back and forth between the US and Europe this year, including trying to qualify for the British Open at Muirfield, followed by the British Senior Open. By the way, playing the old guys’ tour gives the man generally acknowledged as the best player to never win a major a whole new set of chances to win a big one.
