Caltex Singapore Masters
Thursday, February 22nd through Sunday, February 25th
Singapore Island Country Club (Bukit Course), Singapore


Montgomerie plays first European Tour Event of 2001

The European Tour moves to the Island Golf Club in Singapore for the Caltex Singapore Masters. The Island is an inland course with relatively flat and small greens and at 6751 yds and par 71 low scores can be expected.

One of the key holes will be the 206 yard par three second hole, one of the toughest on the course with the green guarded by a steep slope to the right and bunkers on the left but it is the closing stretch which will undoubtedly decide the tournament.

The 17th may only measure 133 yards from an elevated tee but the green is one of the smallest on the course with a lake running round the front and right hand side. The slopes and grain of the green add to the difficulties.

Water also features on the picturesque par five 18th hole which makes its way up to the Bukit clubhouse. A long drive is needed over water and with the green tucked around a dog-leg left an accurate second shot is needed to find the putting surface.

Total prize money for the Tournament is 927,745. with a first prize of 154,616 - entry is the top 65 from the 2001 PGA European Tour Exemption Category list, 65 players as detirmined by the Asian PGA Tour, 8 sponsors invitations and 6 players from Singapore.

Hot from their play off in Malaysia are Ireland's Padraig Harrington and winner of the Malaysian Open Vijay Singh. They are joined by Colin Montgomerie winner of last week's Australian Masters playing in his first European Tour event of 2001. Others in the field include Seve Ballesteros and Andrew Coltart, justin Rose and Nicholas Colesaerts from Belgium playing in his second European Tour event as a professional.
