On the eve of the Players' Championship at Sawgrass in Florida, Colin Montgomerie has been speaking out about the awesome talent of Tiger Woods.

Referring to Woods' latest victory at Bay Hill last week, Monty described how after the first round, the talk in the locker room was not about who was going to win, but who would be runner up.

Some people have said that Tigers' dominance over the last 12 months is not good for the game, but Monty (rightly - Ed) disagrees. He sees the influence that Tiger has had as beneficial.

The prize pool for the "fifth major" is $6 Million, and Tiger Woods is starting round one as the firm favourite.
