Montgomerie wins Senior PGA Championship at Harbor Shores

Posted:
In 1991, Hall of Fame Golfer Colin Montgomerie made his PGA debut in America, but heading into Sunday's final round of the Senior PGA Championship, he had still never won a Major.

However, the 23 year drought finally came to an end  as the 50 year old Scottish golfer won the tournament at Benton Harbor's Harbor Shores, shooting an impressive 13-under-par over his four day win.

"It's a great feeling," said Montgomerie. "I've been very lucky to have won the 40 or so times worldwide and now that's 41 I believe, but it's very special being a Major Champion. I treat it as such, I really do. It might have a senior connotation to it, but it is a major championship. I am thrilled to be part of this history, 75 years it's been going, which is a long, long time and I just love now to be part of history."

U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Tom Watson finished 2nd in the tournament shooting -9.
