Golf News, Souce European Tour.- Colin Montgomerie, who won The European Tour Order of Merit yesterday for a record eighth time, will lead the European challenge at the inaugural 'HSBC Champions' tournament in Shanghai at the Sheshan International Golf Club, from November 10-13.
"I am thrilled to have won my eighth Order of Merit title and, after a such a long gap where everyone probably thought I wouldn't be able to do it again, it is particularly satisfying," said Montgomerie on being presented with the Harry Vardon Trophy as European Number One.
"I am now looking to get my 2006 campaign off to a great start and to consolidate my position on The Ryder Cup Rankings and a win or a good finish at the HSBC Champions would certainly do that." Montgomerie and McGinley will be joined by a host of European stars including Padraig Harrington, a two-time winner on the US PGA Tour this year and other 2004 Ryder Cup team-mates Paul Casey, David Howell, Thomas Levet, Miguel Angel Jiménez, Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood, all of whom will also be hoping to make an impact at the HSBC Champions, where the prize fund of US$5 million is the largest in the history of Asian and Chinese golf.
