Retief Goosen named Golfer of the Month

World number five Retief Goosen has been named the European Tour's player of the month for September when he won consecutive titles in Europe and Asia.

The 36-year-old South African led after every round on his way to a six-shot victory at the China Masters in Beijing on Sept. 4 before winning the German Masters by a stroke at Gut Larchenhof, Cologne the following week.

Twice U.S. Open champion Goosen also finished as the leading points scorer for the losing Internationals team in last month's Presidents Cup against the U.S. at Lake Manassas, Virginia, where he beat Tiger Woods 2 and 1 in the last-day singles.

Goosen held off competition from Briton Colin Montgomerie, who ended a 19-month title drought with victory at the Dunhill Links Championship, and New Zealand's Michael Campbell, winner of the World Match Play Championship at Wentworth.

A panel comprising European Tour players and journalists chooses the award, which is presented each month to honour the best performance by a member on the European Tour and in worldwide competition.
