The 49-year-old Scot has backed the region, which currently can count only South Korean Y.E. Yang as its solitary Major champion, to produce the next batch of world beaters in men's golf.
Monty, as he is affectionately known by his fans around the world, is so sure of his prediction because he sees plenty of encouraging signs for the sport in Asia.
He has reason to be optimistic.
The official regional sanctioning body for professional golf in Asia is the Asian Tour - and business is booming.
The Asian Tour staged a total of 22 tournaments offering prize money of US$12.3 million in its inaugural season back in 2004 - last year it sanctioned a total of 24 tournaments in Asia worth over US$50 million.
"It [Asian Tour] is third fiddle right now [compared to the European Tour and PGA Tour], but you talk to me in 10-15 years' time and you won't be saying that," Montgomerie told ESPNSTAR.com at the Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore.
"I can guarantee you it [Asian Tour] will be equal or ahead.
"I think the work ethic of Asians is different than we in the West. I think that opportunities given are increasing all the time. There's more courses opening up here all the time in Asia, there's more opportunities given for children to play the game and I think you will find a load of very, very good golfers coming out of Asia.
He added: "I think if you talk to me in 10-15 years' time, there could be a dozen [Major winners from Asia]."
This week, American golf superstar Phil Mickelson is among the big names competing in China at the US$7million WGC-HSBC Champions event. The following week, world number one Rory McIlroy comes to Singapore where he will look to sew up the European Tour's Race to Dubai if he can win the US$6 million Barclays Singapore Open ahead of Mickelson and other strong contenders like Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen.
"It's [Barclays Singapore Open] a big tournament, a big purse, a good field, and I look forward to participating myself and trying to give Rory a run for his money," Montgomerie said.
"I used to start events 12-15 years ago expecting to win. Now it is slightly different."
Monty turned pro in 1987 and, according to his official website, has recorded 41 tournament victories around the world.
He is most famously remembered for his dominance of the European game in the 90s as well as for his heroics as a player and captain in the Ryder Cup.
