MONTY'S INSPIRATIONS: HIS WIFE AND HIS MOTHER'S LEGACY
 
Colin and Gaynor Montgomerie
 

Feb. 6, 2009: Colin Montgomerie credits his wife Gaynor with bringing perspective to his life. Recently, when he stormed in from the course, declaring his performance a 'disaster,' Gaynor, 41, told him: 'Four children left without a father - that's a disaster. A bad game of golf isn't.'
 
Colin decided that he wanted to build a support centre as a lasting legacy to his mum Elizabeth, who died of lung cancer in 1991.
 
He said: 'Meeting Gaynor and hearing her story has moved this project forward, accelerated it towards becoming a reality.'
 
The Elizabeth Montgomerie Foundation have formed a partnership with Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres to build a new centre in Lanarkshire.
