Monty recieves OBE

Monty has recieved an OBE for his services and contribution to golf. Choosing to dedicate the award to his European Ryder Cup team-mates, he was awarded the medal by the Prince of Wales at a ceremony which took place at Buckingham Palace.

"This was awarded - I think - on behalf of The Ryder Cup Team of 2004.We won in America and I was probably the oldest player. I was the one at the helm of it I suppose, and in a way I take it for them - the whole Team. It's nice to be rewarded again for one's accomplishments, this one especially.”

Monty was the man who holed the winning putt to seal the Ryder Cup for Europe, last year
at Oakland Hills.

Currently ranked 16th in the world rankings, the 42yr-old Scot still remains optimistic that he can clinch one of the four majors. Winning the European Order of Merit for the eigthth time this year, Monty was also awarded a MBE in 1998.
