Colin Montgomerie targeting Senior Open success this season

Colin Montgomerie has revealed his number one ambition for this season is to win the Senior Open.

The Scot has only just returned to action since suffering a three-month layoff with a serious ankle ligament injury, but already has his sights on capturing a trophy.

The 53-year-old has three senior major titles under his belt, having won the PGA Championship in 2014 and 2015, while also adding the US Open to his cabinet three years ago at Oak Tree National.

However, Montgomerie has never won the Senior Open--and it’s the tournament he’s most determined to taste victory at when it kicks off at Royal Porthcawl at the end of July.

"Having been second in The Open at St Andrews and second in the Senior Open at Royal Porthcawl, I would love to go one better," Montgomerie was quoted as saying by bunkered.co.uk. "It is right on my radar – my No.1 target and the most important event on my calendar – and I am looking forward to it."
