Continued: Monty's Ball? Colin Montgomerie looking to rejuvenate career in Champions Tour debut

Then again, so is Montgomerie when his game is clicking. The change of scenery — and the slightly easier setup the Champions Tour provides — have provided him with a needed confidence boost.

There used to be a time he knew he could win on any given week. Not so much anymore.

"On the European Tour, the last say 5 years, I have been hoping that I would do well," Montgomerie said. "There's a big difference between the two."

Even with the modest returns of the last few years, Montgomerie doesn't need to look far for inspiration. Rocco Mediate won his first Champions Tour start at the season-opening Allianz Championships in February then backed it up with three straight Top 10s.

Montgomerie would settle for being in the mix and putting some red figures on the scoreboard. He's managed just 10 rounds under par in his last 25 events, a stunning slide for the player who ranked in the Top 10 in stroke average with regularity during his 30s and early 40s.

His metronome-like swing can still find the fairway. If his putter cooperates on the more reasonable greens, the guys he will play alongside expect to see Montgomerie's name somewhere on the leaderboard soon.

"I would think this would be a great start for him," Fred Couples said. "It's a perfect course. He drives it like a machine, but I think anyone would tell you that he's going to be a huge factor for this tour and he's going to be great for this tour."
