Montgomerie back on and off course

Manager Guy Kinnings said: "Colin's mind has not been focused on golf for about six months, but he and Eimear are in good shape now." This follows weeks of speculation over the state of the Montgomeries' marraige. Kinnings continued.

"His priorities have changed as a result of what happened, but that does not mean that his ambition has changed. He still wants this to be a big year.

"Because of his nature and the competitive streak within him I doubt whether his intensity will alter, but he wants to leave it on the course.

"Every shot has always mattered to Colin and that's his appeal. I don't think we'll ever see him Fuzzy Zoeller-like whistling down the fairways, but I think he will attack his golf with a different perspective now.

"He realises what is most important and maybe that might help him achieve what he wants."

Back in action in a couple of weeks at the Australian Masters. Allsport.

Colin Montgomerie said: "Life can't be much fun for the wife of any top sportsman who becomes as ambitious, dedicated and blinkered as I was.

"There was pressure on us to come across as the perfect family, but with the atmosphere so tense it was becoming harder to keep it up."

"I would sooner be married to Eimear and have my children around me than win any number of tournaments."
