Monty's rabbit ears in fine form

Colin Montgomerie is notorious for allowing noise on the golf course to get the best him and it did so again in the first round of the Spanish Open on Thursday. Montgomerie seemed to blame an 18th-hole bogey on music coming from a nearby hospitality tent.

"Is this a (bleeping) party or a golf tournament?" he said after signing for a one-under par 71 that left him six shots off the lead.

He no doubt would not be amused to know that the leader, Paul Waring, was a former disc jockey, as the Telegraph pointed out.
