European golf legend Colin Montgomerie will be among the speakers at KPMG's tenth anniversary Golf Business Forum at St Andrews from 3-5 June 3-5.

Montgomerie will join a range of golf industry leaders, including Troon CEO Dana Garmany, Marc Player, CEO of his father Gary's Black Knight Enterprises group and R&A boss Peter Dawson at the event, which is being held at the Fairmont resort outside the Scottish city. Over 300 delegates are expected.

PGA Tour and European Tour leaders Tim Finchem and George O'Grady will jointly be presented with the event's Lifetime Achievement Award.

KPMG golf practice boss Andrea Sartori said: “George O’Grady and Tim Finchem have made outstanding contributions to the development of golf as a sport and business. Professional tournament golf, and the television and media coverage it generates, has been a critical factor in the development of golf, in both mature and emerging markets, worldwide.”
