Monty puts kids on the fairway to heaven
3 September 2009
Colin Montgomerie got a glimpse of the future as a group of young apprentices were treated to master class from the Ryder Cup captain. The Scot took a break from the BMW International Open in Germany to host the Emirates Airline Golf Clinic for some starlets dreaming of one day lining up in the European team to face the U.S in the sport’s greatest team event.
The kids from Golf Club Munich-Eichenried got a close up look at the skills which Montgomerie later used to notch a hole in one with a 156-yard eight iron at the eighth hole of the Nord-Eichenried course.
The 46-year-old, who holds the record for aces in European events with nine, shared technical tips and fielded questions from the youngsters who quizzed him on how to make the grade before showcasing their skills to the Ryder Cup great.
Dubai-based golfer Henrik Stenson was also on hand at the Emirates Airline Golf Clinic to offer advice to youngsters earlier in the day.
As a leading supporter of golf tournaments across the globe, Emirates is the Official Airline at 12 events, including the Austrian Open, BMW International Open, Dubai Desert Classic, HSBC Champions, Malaysian Open, Africa Open, The Hong Kong Open, Volvo Asian Masters, Hero Honda Open, Australian PGA Championship and the Dubai Ladies' Masters.
