MONTY’S PLAY-OFF RECORD
Colin Montgomerie’s World Cup victory with Marc Warren today was only the 2nd time he has come out on top in 12 play-off attempts.
Colin Montgomerie’s World Cup victory with Marc Warren today – Scotland’s first-ever in the event – was only the second time he has come out on top in 12 play-offs during his career.
And he twice lost group matches over extra holes in the old Dunhill Cup at St Andrews.
The 44-year-old’s only previous success was against Ernie Els in the Million Dollar Challenge in South Africa 11 years ago.
Most famously, of course, he has twice been beaten over extra holes in two majors – by Els at the US Open in 1994 and by Steve Elkington at the 1995 US PGA Championship.
