Colin Montgomerie leads Europe in the Royal cup as they attempt to reclaim the cup from Asia this week. Standing in for Seve, Monty has also given himself a playing role — a first in the competition’s history. Naturally he will be keeping a close eye on possible candidates for his Europe team to face America at Celtic Manor in October.
The European side includes Swedes Henrik Stenson, Robert Karlsson, Alexander Noren and Peter Hanson, England’s Simon Dyson, Denmark’s Soren Kjeldsen, Spain’s Pablo Martin and Montgomerie.
