Monty wins at Oak Tree
EDMOND — Seventy-two holes of golf was not enough to decide a winner at the U.S. Senior Open at Oak Tree National. Colin Montgomerie and Gene Sauers had to play a three hole playoff to decide the championship with Montgomerie winning.
Montgomerie has now won the Senior PGA Championship and the U.S. Senior Open titles since May which is quite a feat especially considering he had not won a major in 71 PGA tour events.
"I think I've matured on the golf course. I'm more patient than I was," said Montgomerie." I think I felt that in Majors when I was contending that I had to play perfect golf, I had to go out and score 64 and it's amazing the quality of the golf courses and the toughness of them, you don't. You have to play intelligent golf and I think I've matured enough to realize that and play more within myself."
Bernhard Langer, a favorite to win the event, entered the final round four under but he shot a 77 on Sunday and ended up two over for the tournament.
