Monty & Wie to tee up in Japan

Eight-times European number one Colin Montgomerie will take on Michelle Wie at next month's Casio World Open, organisers said on Tuesday.

The 43-year-old Scot tees up at the Champions Tournament in Shanghai next week in the official start to the 2006-07 European season before taking part in the Nov. 23-27 tournament in Kochi, western Japan.

Montgomerie finished ninth on this year's European order of merit and has been confirmed alongside Wie and rising Australian talent Won-joon Lee, who turns professional next month.

Honolulu schoolgirl Wie narrowly failed to make the cut at last year's Casio World Open when she bogeyed the final two holes and walked off the 18th green in tears.

She became the first woman to make the cut in a major men's tour event in more than 60 years at the SK Telecom Open in South Korea in May.

The previous woman to make the final two rounds of a men's tournament had been Babe Zaharias at the 1945 Los Angeles Open.
