Monty invites Tiger to Europe

8:16 am on 19 August 2011

Colin Montgomerie is urging Tiger Woods to play some European golf events in the next few months.

35 year old Woods has failed to qualify for the US PGA tour's season-ending FedExCup series, leaving him without any golf for nearly three months until he plays the Australian Open in November.

Montgomerie thinks it would be a change of scene for Woods and European fans would still flock to see him play.

As tournament chairman of next week's Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in Scotland, Montgomerie has already invited Woods to play in the event.
