Colin Montgomerie BURNS Patrick Cantlay (and Bernhard Langer!) after trip to zoo

Colin Montgomerie has burned World No.4 Patrick Cantlay and his PGA Tour Champions rival Bernhard Langer following a trip to the zoo this afternoon.

Montgomerie, 59, posted a photo on his Instagram Story that took aim at Cantlay, who was ripped for what was deemed slow play by a number of golf fans on social media in the final round of The Masters

The eight-time European Tour Order or Merit winner also took aim at 65-year-old Langer

"Found a quicker partner for Langer and Cantlay," read Monty's caption on a photo of him in front of a giant tortoise. 

Montgomerie's Insta post came 48 hours after golf social media was up in arms over Cantlay's pace of play at The Masters. 

Amateur Sam Bennett was also being targeted by golf fans for his pace of play, while Paige Spiranac was aiming her frustrations at those using AimPoint Express such as Viktor Hovland, who was playing alongside Cantlay in the final round. 

In one video that went viral on Sunday night at The Masters, Hovland seemingly could not wait any longer for Cantlay! 

Brooks Koepka also blasted the grouping of Cantlay and Hovland in front of him and eventual Masters champion Jon Rahm as "brutally slow."

Langer was competing in The Masters as a two-time winner (1983, 1995) but he missed the cut by two shots on 5-over par.

We can only assume Monty has had enough of the German's pace of play over on the over 50s Tour right now.

On the subject of Langer, there has been one major topic of discussion and it hasn't involved his apparent tortoise-like pace.

Langer has been seriously questioned over his putting stroke, which many believe is still being anchored into his chest. 

The anchored putting ban was brought into play in 2016. 

Some golf fans have gone as far to say Langer is "cheating", but golf's governing bodies believe he is still well within the rules. 

Adam Scott recently told how Langer was told to "sit down" by the Augusta National chairman at the annual Champions Dinner.
