Montgomerie steals into second

Colin Montgomerie gained the most remarkable par three of his career after having his ball stolen at the last hole during the third round of the Lancome Trophy in Paris. Montgomerie finished in 69 for a seven-under- par total of 206 to share second place two shots behind the Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez who shot a 67. However, in a bizarre moment, a woman spectator picked up Montgomerie's ball after his tee-shot at the 18th and threw it to a young boy in the crowd. Both had disappeared by the time Montgomerie arrived to play his second shot but officials allowed the Scot to play from where the ball had landed. The American, Mark O'Meara, who also shot 69, and New Zealand's Greg Turner (68) are tied with Montgomerie for second place.
