Monty brushes aside questions about personal life


2010 PGA ChampionshipSHEBOYGAN, Wis. – Colin Montgomerie has brushed aside questions about his personal life.

The European Ryder Cup captain is trying to patch up his marriage after reports of a fling with an old girlfriend surfaced in June. He was asked Wednesday about an alleged injunction against a British newspaper to bar information about his personal life.

On the eve of the U.S. PGA Championship, Montgomerie said “let me clear this up, though. I can categorically say that there’s no injunction … regarding anything.”

Another reporter asked if there was an injunction in place against a woman, and Montgomerie replied: “Excuse me, I’m here to talk about the Ryder Cup, OK?”

U.S. Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin said: “Let’s stick to golf subjects here.”
