Montgomerie believes the course at the event in Dubai fits well
Eight-time winner of the European Tour Order of Merit Colin Montgomerie believes he can win the Dubai Desert Classic this week & # 39 ;, even at age from 55.
A previous winner of the event, the Scot's last European Tour victory was in 2007 and he now plays mainly on the senior Tour.
Montgomerie admits that golf has become a "power game", but says the course at the Emirates Golf Club suits him.
"If there were one or two courses in the European Tour that I could win – this would be", he told BBC Sport.
"Provided we have extremely good putts and we do not make foolish mistakes …
" How often do you come from a golf course and do you & # 39; so alone & # 39; Well, if I can remove the & # 39; as but & # 39; pieces and do everything right, there is a chance. "
Major winners Ernie Els and Jose-Maria Olazabal will be Montgomerie's playing partners when he finishes on Thursday, a 32nd European Tour title.
Many of the top players of the game are in the field and Montgomerie admits that the ball will drive the most "30 or 40 yards" further than him.
"They have let the ball stay longer in the air, they have let the ball stay more straight," said he." Whether the ball is on the fairway or not is another matter.
"They have overseeded this course and brought all the rough, the greens are very small and that would benefit my iron game."
