"It's been a long time. It's a very special moment," said Montgomerie, who finished a runner-up in five majors on the regular tour.
"We've come close on a number of occasions and it's great to finally break that duck.
"I learned today to concentrate on me, and possibly I haven't in the past. We're always learning and today I concentrated on my own play and could only worry about myself."
As well as being his first official win in the United States, Montgomerie's victory was his first as a senior and first title for seven years.
