Golf: Monty revels in fresh pastures

TOO OFTEN Colin Montgomerie has had the fag-end of it at the Benson and Hedges International, and the Scot was determined not to let it happen again. Not even the presence of his nemesis, Jose Maria Olazabal, could put Monty off. The Masters champion can count the British Amateur in 1984 and the 1990 Lancome Trophy among his victories over Montgomerie, but the Spaniard was barely a shadow of the competitor Greg Norman came up against at Augusta last month.

Golf: In-form Monty is feeling at home

COLIN MONTGOMERIE found himself in a familiar position going into the last two rounds of the Benson and Hedges International. It is the outcome he wants to do something about. "I've been in contention a lot but not won here," Monty said. "I want to change that this week."

Golf: The Masters - Key hole surgery makes the 17th a formidable obstacle for medium to short hitters

THE TEE has been moved back 25 yards at Nandina to give the 425- yard, par-four 17th hole extra length. Until last year, players could hit a pitching wedge into the green but will now be forced, depending on the wind, to play their approach with either an eight or a five iron.

Golf: Faldo doubles commitment

NICK FALDO said yesterday he aims to play both the United States and European Tours next year in an attempt to win a Ryder Cup place. "It's a lot of golf and a long season but the goal is to make the [European] team as quickly as possible and then decide what to do after that," he said.

Golf: Victory name of Singh's game

LONG AFTER the USPGA Championship was switched from a matchplay to a strokeplay format, Vijay Singh, Fiji's foremost golfing export, overcame Steve Stricker in an 18-hole duel at Sahalee. Only Steve Elkington, the 1995 champion, got close to the final twoball with a birdie at the 17th but he bogeyed the last to settle for third place, three behind. Singh dropped only one stroke in his closing 68 to finish on nine under par and win by two from the American.

Words: twentiethly, adv.

TWENTIETHLY IS, if we are to put total faith in the OED, not a word at all. Firstly, secondly, thirdly and all the ordinal adverbs up to nineteenthly are listed, but there they stop. How splendid it is to think that, on at least one occasion, someone managed to get up to nineteenthly.
