Montgomerie and Westwood take a rest

London  - Lee Westwood and Colin Montgomerie have both withdrawn from this week's MCI Classic in Hilton Head, South Carolina after their exertions in the US Masters.

Montgomerie, eighth at Augusta, has flown home to Surrey to be with his wife Eimear, who is expecting their third child next month.

Westwood felt his four-week stretch in the United States, highlighted by his victory in New Orleans, had taken enough out of him.

The 24-year-old from Worksop finished a disappointing 44th in his second Masters, 21 strokes behind winner Mark O'Meara.
