Colin Montgomerie Biography

Colin Montgomerie, OBE, often referred to as 'Monty' was born in Glasgow, Scotland on 23rd June 1963. He was born in Scotland but raised in Yorkshire where father was a company director.

Montgomerie turned professional in 1988, and was named the Rookie of the Year on the European Tour that season. He won his first European Tour event at the 1989 Portuguese Open.

He has had one of the finest careers in European Tour history, having won a record eight Order of Merit titles including a streak of seven consecutively from 1993 to 1999, and 31 European tour victories, placing him third on the all time list.

He first reached the top-10 in the Official World Golf Rankings in 1994 and spent almost 400 weeks in the top-10. His highest ranking was number two.

Montgomerie has represented Europe in eight Ryder Cups as a player and, in 2006, he became the second European golfer, behind Bernhard Langer, to play in five successful Ryder Cup Teams. In January 2009, he was announced as The 2010 European Captain and will lead the Team at The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.

His form fell away gradually in the new millennium, partly due to marriage problems, and his ranking slumped to 82nd in the world, but he came back strongly in 2005, winning a record eighth European Tour Order of Merit and returning to the top ten in the World Rankings. Late in 2005 he became the first man to win 20 million Euros on the European Tour - topping the European Tour's all time highest earners list.

At the end of 2004, Montgomerie was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in the New Year's Honours.

In 2007, following a 19 month winless streak Montgomerie went on to win the European Open at The K Club to surpass Nick Faldo’s previous Tour record of 30 wins. He then went on to cap the season in style by partnering Marc Warren to victory in the Omega Mission Hills World Cup in China, securing Scotland’s first victory in the team event.
