Monty Offers McGinley Assistance, Offering Hope For Sky Viewers Longing For A Monty-Free Telecast

But Ewan Murray, who reports Colin Montgomerie's remarks offering to help in 2014 any way he can, says a cart driving role is unlikely.

It is also unlikely that McGinley would call upon Montgomerie as an assistant. Padraig Harrington is a firm favourite for such a role with Paul Lawrie the most legitimate Scottish option. Lawrie was spoken about as a 2014 captain but, with a top-30 world ranking position, retains proper aspirations of playing at Gleneagles.
