Reuters - Colin Montgomerie, who came agonisingly close to winning last month's US Open, predicted he had about 20 more chances to land an elusive first Major Championship. "I have just turned 43 and up until 48 they should be quite good Majors...to compete," the eight time European Number One said. "If I have 20 more, I will hopefully be in contention in four of them. You never know, one of them I might win."
