Monty Shoots 69 In First Champions Tour Event

Colin Montgomerie entered new territory this week when he played in his first Champions Tour event in Pittsburgh.

After turning 50 last week Monty played alongside good friend Bernhard Langer and made a solid start with an opening round of 69 which is one over par for the tournament, but finds himself four shots behind leader John Houston who opened up with a 65.

It was a day dominated by Americans who fill the 10 top spots but i’m sure the Europeans will fight back in great Ryder Cup fashion!

The Irish Open is taking nice shape where another Ryder Cup legend Jose Maria Olazabal is near the top of the leaderboard, one shot behind Robert Rock and Peter Uihlein.

Rory McIlroy will be hoping for a better day after his opening round of 74 yesterday, he finds himself eleven shots off the lead as it stands and is in danger of missing yet another cut this year.

Another great weekend of golf coming up. Enjoy!
