Colin Montgomerie Seems Nice
We can all agree that Colin Montgomerie has a bit of a short fuse. He's has flipped out before, and will flip out again at some point before the Ryder Cup.
Maybe this time was Sunday, when Monty was finishing up his final round at the Spanish Open. It appears that a nearby tent was playing a little disco music at the event, having some fun for the patrons enjoying the spirits that accompany a private area at a golfing event.
Monty was putting for a birdie on the 18th, three-jacked it, and then went a little apeshit on the music.
Montgomerie had put together a solid opening round and needed a birdie on his last hole to lie only four shots off the lead when he three-putted for a bogey to the accompaniment of loud disco music from a nearly tent.
"Is this a f***ing party or a golf tournament?," the 46-year-old Briton fumed after signing for a one-under-par 71 which left him six strokes behind early leader Ricardo Gonzalez of Argentina.
Well, to be fair to Monty, it was a golf tournament, but Mr. Rabbit Ears himself once again let something inconsequential ruin his round, and possibly his day.
