Monty 'unhappy' at Lyle apology

GOLF: Sandy Lyle&rsquo;s apology for accusing Colin Montgomerie of cheating at an event four years ago was last night branded as &ldquo;strange&rdquo; by his fellow Scot.<br /><br /> &ldquo;I want to be clear that I regret bringing up the 2005 incident,&rdquo; Lyle said. &ldquo;Colin and I are not at war &ndash; he&rsquo;s a great champion and a good friend.&rdquo;<br /><br /> But Ryder Cup captain Montgomerie hit back: &ldquo;It's a rather strange apology to be honest. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m just trying to compete in the Open and my preparations have been dented. I&rsquo;m not very happy at all.&rdquo;
