'Olly' sticks the pace

COLIN Montgomerie has revealed the reason behind his decision to draft in former Ryder Cup hero Jose Maria Olazabal to his back-room team for Saturday.

'Olly' was at Celtic Manor as an ambassador for Nespresso Coffee, but Monty jumped at the chance to use the Spaniard's experience for the rest of the event. Unfortunately for 'Olly', they couldn't give him a buggy.

Monty said: "I felt with his rheumatoid arthritis that he would have struggled, but he was up for it and the adrenalin kept him going all day."
