Colin Montgomerie questions Rory McIlroys approach to upcoming Sandwich Open
Should have played again before British Open
Former European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie thinks Rory McIlroy wouls have been wise to play an event before next week's British Open at Sandwich.
Instead the Irish superstar took three weeks off after his astounding eight-shot victory at the US Open.
'I can understand two out of three, but I would like to have seen him play a competitive tournament between the two majors,' Montgomerie told The Daily Mail.
'He's so natural I don't think there are any fears about his game, but it's the locker room - there are going to be so many people wanting to congratulate him.
'Whether it was the French or the Scottish Open he could have got that out of his system and out of the way so he can start the Open afresh.
'Now he's got that ahead of him and on the first tee I think he will be mentally tired - but who am I to say?'
