Montgomerie Secures fifth victory of the season
Colin Montgomerie secured a three-stroke victory in the BMW International Open, closing with two-under-par round of 70 to finish 20 under par for the tournament. It was his fifth victory of the year and one more win will equal the European Tour record of six titles in a season.
Irishman Padraig Harrington finished in second place, which was enough a guarantee him an automatic place in the European Ryder Cup team for Brookline in September.
MONTGOMERIE LEADS - BUT HARRINGTON IN RYDER FRAME
Colin Montgomerie will attempt to collect his fifth title in one season – one outside the European Tour record – while his nearest adversary, Padraig Harrington, chases the Holy Grail of a Ryder Cup place in the BMW International Open at Golfclub Munchen Nord-Eichenried.
