It was the tale of two 46-year-olds here yesterday morning. While Vijay Singh showed there may well be a major left in his creaking old bones, Colin Montgomerie seemingly has only the groans of frustration left in his.

Colin Montgomerie has admitted Sandy Lyle's derogatory comments about him this week have affected his game at the Open in Turnberry.
Thursday 16 July 2009
On the day the European Tour stopped short of publicly reprimanding Sandy Lyle for accusing their Ryder Cup captain of cheating, one of the leading names in the game warned Colin Montgomerie of the "stigma" that shall always follow him.

Just so you can get the full flavour of the task facing the world's best golfers in The Open at Turnberry this week, let me pass on some idea about the state of the rough on the Ailsa course.

Now, before you call up an image of Monty's derrière and think to yourself "wow, that will be some squeak", feel a little sympathy for the burly Scot. Europe's Ryder Cup captain has not missed an Open Championship in 19 years – but this could be his last. Monty has never won – sorry, "has yet to win" – a major and, seeing as he went into last week's French Open without a top-10 finish in a whole year, the chances of him qualifying for St Andrews next year via any money-list is on the Camelot side of remote. So his best chance of extending his run to 20 could be to finish in the top 10 next week. Not as unlikely as it might seem. Monty has his training academy at Turnberry. He might even pop in there himself.

Retief Goosen is not in the habit of reducing galleries to giggling fits, but when he topped his first shot of the morning and it proceeded to trundle off the tee-box and hop up the fairway like an embarrassed duck the muffles barely concealed the laughter. But if ever the first act was unfaithful to the conclusion, it was this drive.

Over the years Colin Montgomerie and Ian Poulter have had their differences, had their ding-dongs, had their words. Yet at least they are agreed on one incontrovertible truth – that a good Saturday in Paris does absolute wonders for one's sense of well-being.

Nick Dougherty's first win after the sudden death of his mother was always going to be emotional and that the young Englishman had to endure the worst 12 months of his career before eventually returning to the winner's enclosure was to make the tears which flowed in Munich yesterday that bit more inevitable. On holding a short putt to lift the BMW International Open, Dougherty pointed to the sky with a Frank Lampard-like dedication.

With respect to Nick Dougherty, riding high on the top of the Wales Open leaderboard on five-under, this first day was always going to be all about the respective performances of the two Ryder Cup captains. In that respect, Europe will feel that Colin Montgomerie fired the first shot in the 2010 battle as Corey Pavin, "Mr Desert Storm" himself, ended up lost in a Welsh jungle.
