“It was a wee bit further than I thought,” Montgomerie said. “But I was already on the road and just kept going. A lot of ‘me’ time.”

Montgomerie used the 400 -or-so miles to think about his putting, which he said has been off since joining the Champions Tour in June.

He spent a considerable amount of time on the practice green Wednesday.

“If you’re not putting well, you can forget it,” Montgomerie said, nodding to his putter resting nearby. “I’ve been told to love it, but if you don’t see it tomorrow morning you’ll know I’ve fallen out of love with it and it’s in about three pieces.”

Berry’s back

Don Berry’s reward for claiming one of the final two spots into the 3M Championship field after Tuesday afternoon’s event qualifier? A 7 a.m. pro-am tee time Wednesday.

Not that Berry minded.

“I’d just be at work anyway,” the Edinburgh USA club pro said.

Instead he’s guaranteed another paycheck this weekend in the no-cut tournament.

“I know I can play with these guys — most of them,” said Berry, who collected $6,300 last year for his 46th-place finish as a sponsor’s exemption. “I feel like I semi-belong.”

Tee times

Friday’s first round features a wave of notable groups. Lehman is paired with Roger Chapman and Mark Calcavecchia at 11:20 a.m. Hale Irwin, Tom Kite and John Cook tee off two groups later, followed by Mark Wiebe, Jay Haas and Nick Price at noon and Kenny Perry, Craig Stadler and Mediate at 12:10 p.m.
