How many times has Phil won outside of the U.S??????????
Maybe the correct question should be-"Why do the greatest golfers of all time play and win all over the world-not just in the U.S?"
Ernie Els has be the role model of any budding golfer today-it was good enough for Jack Nicklaus to play all over the world as it is for Ernie.
Maybe it's time to stop bagging Monty and and realise that the world does not revolve around the U.S!!!!!!!

Wow, mooey, have a bit of "U.S.!!!!!" issue there?

My post had nothing to do with the U.S., just that Monty hasn't shown he can win anywhere in the world, which is what a champion needs to do. Ivan Lendl was a terror on the tennis court, and likely on any given day could beat any player in the world in his day. But his greatness is seriously tampered because he couldn't win Wimbledon.

Ernie Els has won everywhere in the world, including the U.S. Open. You notice you'll never see anyone write much questioning Els' greatness. He has proven his greatness. Monty just hasn't.

Montgomerie has won in countries the Americans have never even heard of (e.g. any American hear ever heard of Scotland?). Americans need to pull their heads out of their asses and realise that a golfer does not need to win in America to 'prove himself.'

For the most part, the conditions on the PGA Tour are exactly the same week after week. Don't dispute that; it's true.

Proving yourself is winning in a wide range of climates and landscapes, like Monty.

Monty has proven himself to be one of the best golfers ever.

(By the way, Montgomerie was pretty much the top golfer in the U.S. when in college. He hasn't lost his ability to play in America; he just gets sick of all those rowdy 'golf fans' who apparently think they're at an ice hockey match.)
