WOODS HAS LOST AURA - MONTY; GOLF.
World number one Woods will take an "indefinite" break from golf in a bid to save his marriage after admitting being unfaithful to wife Elin.
Montgomerie believes the sport will be more competitive as a result and argues it will be a less dominant Woods who he and others will face if and when he returns to the professional circuit.
The Scot said: "There is a mystique which has been lost and let's hope that golf isn't damaged by that, and it shouldn't be.
"There was an aura, and that wall if you like has been split slightly, so there are cracks and I feel that it gives us more opportunity of winning these big events now."
Woods's long-time caddie Steve Williams insists he had no knowledge of any of the player's indiscretions, which have come to light since a car crash outside his home just over a fortnight ago.
"I had no knowledge of what Tiger's indiscretion was," Williams said.
"I am an honest person. I had no knowledge of what was going on. If I did, I would say I did."
