Monty marks 600 European Tour events

Colin Montgomerie celebrated his six-hundredth European Tour event at the Turkish Airlines Open. He hosted guests, VIPs and sponsors in a special evening, on the terrace overlooking the 18th green of the Montgomerie Maxx Royal golf course, in Antalya, Turkey.

In his career Monty has racked up 31 European Tour victories, eight Order of Merit titles, two Senior Major Championships, and played in eight Ryder Cups.

He commented, “To be able to mark my six-hundredth tour event at a course I designed and which is hosting such a prestigious tournament on the European Tour is a huge honour for me. We all had a great time last year when we first came to Turkey, and to see the tournament return to the Montgomerie Maxx Royal is a great thrill for me. Despite the weather it promises to be a very successful tournament.” More at:
