Monty Far From Finished
Lately, I've read a bunch of articles and listened to several announcers say that Colin Montgomerie probably blew his last shot at winning a major. He definitely screwed up his chance at winning the U.S. Open, but I think these people are wrong about him not contending in future major championships.
Monty has been a very good player for a long time, and he just turned 43. However, in the past 18 months, his game has been excellent. Other players have proven to be able to compete on a grand stage well into their forties - Fred Couples and Vijay Singh are two players who come to mind. Monty has risen to number 13 in the world rankings because of his form in Europe and his runner-up finishes in two of the last four majors. I predict that we haven't heard the last from Monty. He might even get his comeuppance at Hoylake in a few weeks.
