Orion signs Colin Montgomerie memoir

Orion has signed a memoir by golfer and Ryder Cup-winning captain Colin Montgomerie for publication this autumn.

Publisher Alan Samson bought world rights to Monty from Guy Kinnings and Sarah Wooldridge at IMG. The book will be published in September.

The book is described by the publisher as "the story of both a prodigious talent and complex personality who at 47 remains determined to add to his already impressive achievements". In addition to captaining the winning 2010 Ryder Cup team, Montgomerie has won more than 40 international tournaments and eight European Order of Merit titles.

Samson said: "We are thrilled that Colin is continuing his long and happy relationship with Orion. As a sports star who has sustained a wonderful career for many years, as a superlative team player, and as a triumphant leader, Colin has a unique tale to tell."

Montgomerie said: "I am delighted to be working with Orion and am enjoying the cathartic process of regaling my life to this point and especially reliving that wonderful week in Wales last year."
