Colin Montgomerie has selected the items to be displayed in his locker at the World Golf Hall of Fame in Florida after his induction next month.

They include the Olympic Torch he carried in Aberdeen as one of the torchbearers for last year’s Games in London, a commemorative trophy celebrating all eight of his European Tour Merit of Order victories and a bag and equipment from the 2010 Ryder Cup, where he captained Europe to victory at Celtic Manor.

The exhibits and lockers celebrating the careers of Montgomerie and fellow Scots Willie Park Jnr and Ken Schofield, along with fellow Class of 2013 Inductees Fred Couples and Ken Venturi, will officially open to the public on 7 May – the day after the Hall of Fame’s annual Induction Ceremony in St Augustine.

Park’s items include the inscribed winner’s medal from the 1887 Open Championship while Schofield, the European Tour’s former chief executive, has opted for various memorabilia from Ryder Cups in the 1980s.
