Ryder Cup "edge" must survive says Montgomerie

Colin Montgomerie believes golf cannot afford to let the competitive edge disappear from the Ryder Cup.

The former European number one fears that the fierce rivalry of the Ryder Cup may be tamed down following the outrageous scenes at the last Cup meeting in Brookline.

"The Ryder Cup just would not work without its competitiveness and fire. There will be incidents at The Belfry," he predicted.

"There are always incidents in matchplay and certain things creep up to make the rivalry even more intense which is good. This is what it needs. "

Montgomerie said: "There is no point in going around giving each other five-foot putts all day long. So let's be competitive, but at the same time respect the etiquette of the game."
