'No, I don't support it at all,' said Montgomerie when asked whether he approved or not. 'I feel that it's my responsibility to support the Tour. I know what's going on with the accounts and it's all very kosher. If I'm involved with making the rules on the Tour, I can't go behind its back and demand something else.'
Montgomerie is a member of the tournament committee which dictates the Tour's rules and golfers' code of conduct.
Torrance said, 'I trust the European Tour implicitly. I've been on the Tour for 30 years and I've seen it grow incredibly. I don't agree with the reasons for the complaint whatsoever.'
