2014 Senior PGA Champion
Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid
Colin Montgomerie learned something about playing major championship golf at the age of 51 in the 75th Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Michigan.
"I learned today to concentrate on me, and possibly I haven't in the past," the Scot said on May 25, after shooting a 6-under 65 for a four-stroke victory over 64-year-old Tom Watson. "We're always learning and today I concentrated on my own play and could only worry about myself."
Montgomerie is the third Scot to win senior golf 's most historic and prestigious championship, and the first since Jock Hutchison won his second Senior PGA in 1940. He is also the third-straight foreign-born player to hoist the Alfred S. Bourne Trophy.
Bob Friend, PGA director of golf operations at Pikewood National Golf Club in Morgantown, West Virginia, and Craig Thomas, PGA head professional at Metropolis Country Club in White Plains, New York, shared honors as the low PGA Club Professional in the Senior PGA Championship. Friend and Thomas were the best of the 12 PGA Club Professionals who made the 36-hole cut at Harbor Shores.
The 2015 Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid will be held May 21-24 at French Lick (Indiana) Resort.
