Colin Montgomerie teams up with new caddie

Eight-times European number one Colin Montgomerie is joining forces with Ryder Cup team mate Paul Casey's former caddie Craig Connolly.

The duo will work together for the first time at this week's French Open in Paris, Montgomerie's manager Guy Kinnings told Reuters on Monday.

It was not immediately clear how long Montgomerie and fellow Scot Connolly would be working together but the hope is it will be a full-time arrangement.

Connolly split up with world number 16 Casey after the Briton finished joint 10th in the U.S. Open at Oakmont earlier this month.

Montgomerie and his long-time caddie Alastair McLean also decided to go their separate ways before the start of the U.S. Open.

The 44-year-old Scot has slipped to 48th in the world, having gone without a tournament victory since the Hong Kong Open in December 2005.

Casey is giving the French Open a miss but is due to play in next week's European Open in Ireland.
