Mike Weir returns to The Old White TPC for his second attempt at winning The Greenbrier Classic.
Weir missed the cut last year in his first try. He looked to be a near lock to make the FedExCup Playoffs and secure a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card when he finished second at the HP Byron Nelson Championship and moved to 87th in the FEC standings, but he's now fallen to 115th. He need to put together one more great week, or a couple of good weeks, to ensure his inclusion in the field at The Barclays in August. Jun 30 - 9:14 PM

Mike Weir has been removed from the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

He chased his out-of-nowhere solo second at the Byron Nelson by missing the cut on the number at the Memorial. Now 98th in the FedExCup standings, the lefty has some freedom to ease his schedule, but he can't get too complacent with a full summer before the Playoffs. NOTE: Ben Kohles and Justin Bolli also withdrew as alternates. Both are slated to compete in the Cleveland Open on the Tour.

Mike Weir closed out the HP Byron Nelson Championship with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 to post 12-under 268, two strokes adrift of champion Brendon Todd

The Canadian hit the ground running today with four short-range birdies on his first five holes. However, he just couldn't keep pace despite two more birdies, including a gem from 20'9" at the par-3 13th hole, as he squared three bogeys, each as a result of missing the green in regulation. Still, we haven't been treated in quite some time to this kind of form from Weir. Today's score is his first red number in a final round since last year's John Deere Classic (67). It's also his first top 40 since the JDC (T27), but more impressively it's Weir's first top 10 since the 2010 Humana Challenge (solo sixth). He hadn't posted a top two since a solo second at the 2009 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Gamers have a right to be excited about this spectacular finish, but should also keep expectations realistic moving forward.

Mike Weir fashioned a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The putter remains hot for the Canadian as his strokes gained-putting sits at 2.367 for the tournament. The lefty converted four times today from outside ten feet, three of them for birdie and the last coming from 10'1" to save par on the final hole. Weir sits one shot off the lead with a 9-under 201 through 54 holes. Expectations should be tempered tomorrow as he's failed to post a Sunday round of par or better this year in six tries, with an aggregate of 15-over-par.

At 6-under-par 68-66=134, Mike Weir owns a piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He's been writing about his confidence on his website for a while, but nothing truly matters until he executes. Weir opened with a bogey-5 at the 10th hole today and hit only 10 greens in regulation, but he played the rest of the course in bogey-free 5-under with five birdies. The longest measured just 11'5" at the par-3 fifth hole. The likeable Canadian hasn't logged a top 25 in a stroke-play start since the 2010 Humana Challenge back when it was still known as the Bob Hope Classic. He entered this week sans a top 40 in 22 consecutive starts. Brace yourself for what could be an epic weekend outside Dallas.
May 16 - 1:59 PM

Mike Weir makes his 19th start of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The Canadian has made six of his 18 cuts, but has nothing better than a T44 at the Masters to show for it. He finished in a share of 33rd here last season, so there is hope that this could result in his best week of the year to date. Considering he is playing this year on his second of two career earnings exemptions, Weir is running out of chances to secure a PGA TOUR card for 2014-15. He sits at 187th in the FedExCup standings.
May 12 - 9:42 PM

Mike Weir rides a relative wave of momentum into the RBC Heritage this week.

Weir tied for 44th at the Masters last week, which represents his best 2013-14 PGA TOUR result. He made the cut at 1-over-par 145, but a third-round 79 removed him from contention. The Canadian has appeared sporadically at Harbour Town over the years, tying for 10th in 1999 but not returning again until a T64 in 2010. He then missed the cut in 2011 and 2012.
Apr 14 - 8:39 PM

Mike Weir returns to the Valero Texas Open field after a two-year hiatus.

Weir is playing on a career earnings exemption this season, but is not making the most of it. He hasn't played a round of weekend golf since November. He has eight missed cuts and a withdrawal during that stretch. The lefty missed the cut in his only attempt at TPC San Antonio back in 2011.
Mar 24 - 11:06 PM

The opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am was suspended at 8:39 a.m. PT due to inclement weather. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 11:30 a.m.

What else is new? It's not the snow that has pelted a good portion of the country, but persistent rain showers with embedded thunderstorms are expected throughout the day. The tournament began at 8:00 a.m., so only 36 golfers across three golf courses completed at least one hole. This includes Mike Weir, who opened birdie-bogey at the back side of Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course. Because the weather was expected, tournament officials are allowing the field to play lift, clean and place in preferred lies today. And since three courses are used, the provision will remain in force until the cut falls after 54 holes.
Feb 6 - 11:53 AM

Mike Weir stumbled to a 4-over-par 38-37=75 in his opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Sigh. Weir, who was in our crosshairs today after a neck injury forced him to withdraw after 26 holes of last week's Farmers, hit 11 greens in regulation at TPC Scottsdale today but lassoed only one birdie, that a 4 at the third hole. He went a mere 3-for-7 in scrambling and added a three-putt bogey from just 22 feet at the par-4 first. Overall, he failed to convert on five chances inside 10 feet. This is the seventh time in eight starts this season that he's opened with a black number.

Mike Weir withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open during his second round.

Weir completed eight holes on the North Course at Torrey Pines before calling it quits. He was birdie-free 2-over on the day and 7-over through 26 holes. He's now 3-for-7 on the season with no top 55s. UPDATE: Lorne Rubenstein later alerted his followers on Twitter that the lefty is nursing a neck injury. "He had three days of chiro/physio but was still hurting," Rubenstein wrote. If he's able, Weir will tee it up at next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Mike Weir is a member of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR by virtue of a one-time career earnings exemption.

The Canadian hasn't finished inside the top 125 on the money list since 2009, batting injuries along the way. Seemingly healthy in 2013, he managed to secure nine paychecks in 22 events, but failed to crack a top 25. The new season hasn't been a complete disaster. He's made three of four cuts, but has yet to post a top-50 finish. Sadly, it seems Weir's game may never return to the elite form that saw him slip on a green jacket to go with seven other wins.

Mike Weir continues his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season at The McGladrey Classic.

Weir has made the predictable decision to burn his second of two career earnings exemption, and has made one of two cuts to date this season. He hasn’t earned a top 10 on the PGA TOUR since finishing sixth at the Bob Hope Classic in 2010, so to say he needs to step on the gas is an understatement. That is also his most recent top 25 in a stroke play PGA TOUR event. This will be his inaugural trip to Sea Island and his first look at the Seaside Course.

Mike Weir is forgoing the Tour Finals and will use his second of two career earnings exemptions in 2013-14, according to SCORE Golf's Rick Young on Twitter.

This is not a surprise, especially since the lefty didn't appear in the published field for next week's Hotel Fitness Championship, which has since been removed from Weir was among 12 golfers that finished 126-200 in FedExCup points that aren't already exempt on the PGA TOUR next season and didn't commit to the lid-lifter of the Tour Finals; he placed 174th. Stephen Ames (173rd in FEC points; 43rd in career earnings) and Robert Allenby (185th; 22nd) are also candidates to burn exemptions. Weir used his top-25 exemption for 2013. He's currently 20th on the all-time money list.

Mike Weir spun a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the midpoint in 4-under 140, seven strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Canada's own opened with a 73 and went just 1-for-16 in birdies opportunities, so today served as redemption. Weir hit only nine greens in regulation today but converted eight birdies, two as a result of greenside hole-outs. Of the remaining six, three were of some distance -- 33'8", 17'10" and 15'5" at the 11th, fifth and seventh holes, respectively. It's the first time he's made the cut at this event since Glen Abbey last hosted in 2009. Of course, the lefty lost in a playoff to Vijay Singh here in 2004, so he has even more redemption potentially awaiting him on the weekend.
