Montgomerie Returns to SAS Championship to Defend Title

CARY, N.C. (July 17, 2018) – World Golf Hall of Fame Member Colin Montgomerie (@montgomeriefdn) will return to Cary in October to defend his 2017 SAS Championship title. The SAS Championship, held annually at Prestonwood Country Club, will take place October 12 – 14.

Montgomerie ran away with the Championship on Sunday, finishing the week 16-under par. Vijay Singh and former champion, Doug Garwood, tied for second, three-strokes behind the lead. The victory was Montgomerie’s first on the PGA TOUR Champions in 2017.

“The tournament is pleased to welcome Colin back to Cary in 2018,” Tournament Director Jeff Kleiber said. “This will be his sixth appearance at the SAS Championship, and he will compete against an elite field of champions once again, in what is turning into an unbelievably exciting PGA Tour Champions season.”

Montgomerie is currently ranked 17th on the Charles Schwab Cup Money List and has three top-10 finishes under his belt in 2018.

“It's one of the favored ones on the Tour, one of the big ones,” Montgomerie said of the SAS Championship after his 2017 victory.

The SAS Championship will again play host to ‘Wildcard Weekend’ on the PGA TOUR Champions – the last full-field event before the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs. The event allows for one player who finishes in the top-10, but is outside of the top-72 on the money list, to advance to the Playoffs.

Additional player commitment announcements will be made throughout the year.

Watch Colin Montgomerie compete in October from the most exciting spots on the course with tickets in the Mellow Mushroom Chill Club. Hospitality and one-day tickets are available at www.SASChampionship.com/Tickets.
