New Delhi: Scottish golf legend Colin Montgomerie on Friday said the sport's future lies in Asia as the game has stagnated in Europe and America.

"Golf in America and Europe, I think, has stagnated in the last 10 years. The growth of the game is in Asia," Montgomerie said.

"We have an Asian winner of a Major, Y.E. Yang, who beat Tiger Woods in the PGA championship and that is a proof. We feel there is more to come," added Montgomerie, who conducted a short clinic for budding talents on the sidelines of the opening day of the Hero Cycles Golf Cup, here at the Delhi Golf Club (DGC).
