Colin Montgomerie has never registered an official win of any kind in the United States, so forget the whole Senior major thing, just winning Sunday's Senior PGA would be a big deal. It might even get him a look from the World Golf Hall Of Fame (*I'm still in denial)
However, as if his track record isn't enough of a burden, it's clear Monty is dealing with Bernhard Langer's slow play as well as he can after three days (and one more) with the notorious turtle.
T.J. Auclair reports:
In the third round, however, Montgomerie seemed visibly annoyed at times by how long it took Langer to ready himself for a shot.
"Bernhard is different," explained Montgomerie, who has successfully teamed with Langer many times over the years in the Ryder Cup. "You have to adjust your own pace. There's no point in playing faster to make up for someone who isn't as fast. So you have to adjust your own pace and form and that's what I do playing with Bernhard. There's no point in me rushing around. I'm going nowhere on my own.
"So you just have to abide by what's gone on and you play accordingly," Montgomerie added. "And I know the situation, I've known Bernhard for 30 years and I played golf with Bernhard for 30 years and I've enjoyed it. We have had great success and great times together. I really enjoy walking the fairways with him. So you just have to adjust accordingly.”
He handles it well in the post round interview posted below. Let's see if he's as chipper tomorrow after another day of watching Langer take too long. NBC televises from 3-6 pm ET.
