TREWS COMPANY; GOLF LATEST ... What a turn-up as Monty eyes Daly trousers.

Byline: Bernie McGuire

JOHN DALY reckons a pair of strident strides would help old pal Colin Montgomerie beat the pants off golf's young guns.

The American is threatening to kit Monty out in his trademark Loudmouth trousers as they pair up today in the Castellon Masters in Spain.

And the Scot says he's game for a fashion show - but only if he's cut loose in tartan trews.

The weekend field includes 18-year-old defending champ Matteo Manassero and 20-year-old Tom Lewis, last week's Portugal Masters winner, making Daly, 45, and Monty, 48, two of the oldest swingers in town.

Daly has been dazzling galleries in his unique brand of garish gear tailored in fabric some argue would be better suited for flags or curtains.

The former Open champion persuaded cricketing legend Ian Botham to wear Loudmouths when they played in the recent Dunhill Links Championship and admits he may send several pairs to Monty's hotel room and ask him to take his pick.

LAUGHED Last night Daly said: "I'd love Monty to wear them but I don't know if he'd warm to the idea of being seen in my pants. I did manage to get Ian into a pair and I've sent Nick Faldo a ton of clothing, including a Union Jack sports jacket.

"I haven't partnered Monty for as long as I can remember so I'm looking forward to it as we get along great."

Monty laughed and said: "I could be tempted if John sends round a nice pair of Loudmouth tartan trousers for me to wear. I will keep an eye out for packages."

Nine Scots are chasing the pounds 290,000 first prize, including Monty and Richie Ramsay.
