Quiet Please: Monty Speaks on Tiger Woods

Straight from the UK:

“It is a shame that this has happened to our iconic sportsman and I say that as a fellow golfer to a player I have admired,” Montgomerie said. “Nobody is quite sure how long this absence is going to be. We hope he gets back playing and winning tournaments as soon as possible.

“He will come back, but whether he will retain that mystique as an iconic player, I’m not sure. It will be tougher for him, but he’ll be out to prove he do this under extreme pressure,” Montgomerie told BBC Radio. “He has got four more to go to tie [Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major wins] and five to beat him. He will come back and win more majors providing his drive and ambition are still there. And let’s hope they are.”

“There is no question there was an aura about Tiger Woods over this incredible record he has, not just in majors but in other world events. That wall has been split slightly and there are cracks. It gives us more opportunity to find ways of winning these events now and I am thinking of myself as well as my peers.”
