COLIN MONTGOMERIE: No, we don't have to worry about age. Not at all. We are fitter. I feel fitter and fresher. There are no worries about age. I can keep doing this. I've hit so few balls in my life that, although I am 43, in golfing terms I feel 33, because I haven't worn out my body bashing balls. Actually, I can prolong my career longer than others because I haven't bashed myself up.
I am off in just over an hour and I might hit 30 shots, something around 70 on the course and that's 100 shots. Some poor so-and-so was sent out by Sky, I think it was, to count how many shots Vijay Singh hit on the Thursday of the U.S. Open, including his 70 or 71 that he shot on the course. If I tell you that I would have hit around 150 - a couple of chips, putts, 69 and some shots and putts afterwards - how many do you think he hit? I'll tell you - just short of 1,000 in the day. That included 400 putts after he finished. He's older than me by four months. But he is unique. He is one end of the scale and I am the other. That's the different - 700- or 800-ball difference in a day. You multiply that by six days' play in a week. He does very well.
