Olazabal & Montgomerie seeking return of form

Colin Montgomerie and Jose Maria Olazabal hope to swing back into form this week when both men feature in the French Open on the back of missed cuts in previous events.

Olazabal was disappointed to miss the weekend in his home Spanish Open two weeks ago, a tournament he has yet to win.

Whereas it was the double U.S. Masters champion's driving that again let him down, Montgomerie's putting is fast becoming his Achilles Heel.

Olazabal will be hoping for a return to form this week. Allsport.

The 37-year-old Scot will be anxious to get it right this week in Lyon, as he defends the title he won at Le National last year.

The seven-time European No. 1 took 35 and 32 putts, respectively, for his two rounds in last week's Algarve Portuguese Open as he missed the cut by a single stroke.

That made it two missed cuts in succession after failing to make the weekend at Augusta in his previous tournament, the first time he had missed two in a row since 1998, when he failed in the European Open and BMW International.

"It's not so good just now. I shouldn't be missing cuts. My putting let me down. I'll have to go and work on it and see if I can get out of it," the disappointed Scot said.

Montgomerie's missed cut in Portugal relegated him to 60th place on the rankings he won for seven successive years until conceding to Lee Westwood last season.
