Three months after making what he called the "horribly awful" decision not to pick his "friend" for the Ryder Cup, Colin Montgomerie still hasn't spoken to Paul Casey.

Lee Westwood will return home brimming with confidence despite the new world No 1 missing out on the HSBC Champions by a stroke to Francesco Molinari. Westwood could only match the Italian's final round of 67 at Sheshan International GC to finish 18 under par for the tournament, one back from his rival who clinched his second European Tour title.

Even as American hopes of retaining the Ryder Cup were extinguished on a glorious afternoon down by the river Usk, a great individual career might just have been rekindled. Tiger Woods, despite suffering his biggest-ever matchplay defeat on Sunday, ended up as joint-top scorer in the event with Steve Stricker, Luke Donald and Ian Poulter, and although it was the last thing on the minds of thousands of rapturous European supporters as they jigged back to the coach parks, it could be that they had been present at Tiger's competitive rebirth. His card read nine under par when his singles match against Francesco Molinari came to an end on the 15th green. Had it been boxing rather than golf, it might have been stopped sooner.

Colin Montgomerie is starting to sound like a cross between Winston Churchill and Sir Alex Ferguson. On the eve of the final day of the Ryder Cup he put out a rallying call demanding more passion from the crowd – and admitted he gave his players the hairdryer treatment.

Luke Donald and Paul Casey are even closer to a possible £7.2m jackpot – the richest prize in golf – this weekend after making superb starts to the Tour Championship in Atlanta yesterday.
Thursday 23 September 2010
Starting today, Paul Casey has the chance to deliver the ultimate Ryder Cup rebuke to Colin Montgomerie by winning the biggest prize in the history of European golf. But far from fearing a victory in the Tour Championship for the player he overlooked for a wildcard, Montgomerie claims it would actually be a boost to his team.

While Colin Montgomerie was extolling the well-timed charge of Padraig Harrington in New Jersey, Edoardo Molinari was just a few feet away here doing the utmost to get himself noticed in the great wild-card war.
Wednesday 25 August 2010
Edoardo Molinari believes his form and desire are more deserving of a wildcard than the four European heavyweights who have chosen to play in America this week rather than the Ryder Cup's final qualifying event here.
