Having previously finished as runner-up in two USGA Major Championship play-offs, De Vere Golf Ambassador, Colin Montgomerie claimed his second career Senior Major in dramatic fashion at the U.S. Senior Open Championship last weekend.
Following a stunning opening round of 65, Montgomerie carded a final round 2-under par 69 which saw him catch overnight leader Gene Sauers, before emerging victorious in the three-hole play-off. Montgomerie’s victory in the U.S. Senior Open follows his maiden Major victory in May, when he claimed the Senior PGA Championship to end his wait for Major glory.
To celebrate Monty’s continued success on golf’s biggest stage in 2014, De Vere is offering golfers across the UK the opportunity to emulate the 8-time European #1 with green fees available at De Vere resorts for just £20.14.
In Monty’s second year as an ambassador for De Vere Golf, he has broken his Major duck in sensational fashion with victories in two of his last three Senior Majors. His win this weekend also sees Montgomerie become only the fifth player in history to win the Senior PGA Championship and Senior U.S. Open Championship in the same year.
“I am delighted to win the U.S. Senior Open. I’m playing some good golf and really enjoying myself on the Champions Tour. It is a great feeling to be winning again and of course I’m delighted to win my second Senior Major,” continued the 2010 Ryder Cup Captain. “The team at De Vere have been incredibly supportive of me over the last 18 months, so it is very nice to be able to share success with them.”
Keith Pickard, De Vere Group Director of Golf stated his delight at Montgomerie’s victory, “Colin has been an inspiration to club golfers for over 25 years, and we’re absolutely delighted to be a part of his Major winning team! His top quality performances, coupled with his fantastic manner and attitude embody what we strive to achieve across our De Vere Resorts, and we look forward to continuing our successes together in the future.”
