Montgomerie hopes to play Open again

Colin Montgomerie hopes to play in the Open again despite two disappointing final days at Royal Troon.

The Scot finished 17-over for the tournament after a final-round five-over-par 76, having made the cut with opening rounds of 71 and 75 on Thursday and Friday.

The 53-year-old, who finished third at Gailes Links in June to secure a first Open appearance in six years, accepts this could be his last Open appearance but says he will continue to play the qualifying tournaments.

"You've got to be realistic and think that it might well be the last time I'm here at an Open," he said.

"The Gailes Club, part of the Glasgow Golf Club, were very hospitable and I thank them for allowing me to try and qualify to get here in the first place.

"I'd love to try and do that again."

The eight-time European Order of Merit winner and former European Ryder Cup captain admits his driving from the tee wasn't good enough during Sunday's round.

Montgomerie recovered from three bogeys in his opening six holes to post a birdie-two at the Postage Stamp, but bogeys at nine, 11 and 12 condemned him to a five-over 76.

"I've struggled pulling the ball and the ball is going left. When you are aiming left, expecting a fade, you know, it's doubly bad. So I've just got to sort it out," he continued.

Day 4 of the Open Championship is live on eir Sport on Sunday.
