Monty gives Garcia Ryder Cup confidence vote

Monty named golfer of the month

Colin Montgomerie's commanding victories in the Benson and Hedges International and Volvo PGA Championship - first by three strokes, then by five - have won him the Asprey and Garrard European Tour golfer of the month award for May.

The 35-year-old Scot, back to the top of the Order of Merit he has lifted for the past six seasons, earns £1,000 for the Golf Foundation after being the unanimous choice of a panel of Association of Golf Writers members and Golf Channel commentator Warren Humphreys.

The other leading candidates were South African Retief Goosen - first in the French Open, second in the Deutsche Bank and fourth in the Volvo PGA Championship - 19-year-old Sergio Garcia, who in his first US Tour event as a professional was joint third in the Byron Nelson Classic, and Ryder Cup captain Mark James, runner-up to Montgomerie at Wentworth on Monday.
