Mike Weir turns his attention to Quail Hollow Club for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.
The Canadian will need all ten fingers to count his Wells Fargo starts after his week, and he'll have the chance to make his seventh weekend appearance. The lefty has three top 25s at Quail Hollow but none since 2007. Entering the week with one cut made in 12 starts this year, the odds are not in Weir's favor this week. May 12 - 8:36 AM

Mike Weir shot 10-over-par 41-41=82 in today's opening round of the Masters.

The 2003 champ has battled an injury to his right forearm for a while. It led to withdrawals during his last two starts, but he's not taking a spot in the field at the invitational-only Masters. He split only six (of 14) fairways, which are eminently findable, and totaled only seven greens in regulation. Weir erased a lone birdie at the par-5 13th hole with seven bogeys and two doubles. This is his highest score in 53 career competitive rounds on the track.

Mike Weir did not commit to next week's Shell Houston Open.

While disappointing to fans of the face of Canadian golf, this clears his schedule to simplify his plan to play in the Masters in two weeks. Weir was a late withdrawal before his opening round of the Valero Texas Open with the recurring injury in his right forearm. Gamers won't miss him, of course, but he's been a mildly intriguing source of morbid fascination as he maintains a positive outlook despite an unending series of setbacks.

Mike Weir withdrew from the Valero Texas Open prior to his tee time in today's opening round.

Weir alerted his followers on Twitter about his decision, writing, "Frustrated to withdraw from Valero Texas open but my forearm still not right!" Last we heard, he was dealing with soreness in his right elbow, but close enough. Weir honored his word by not trying to play if he wasn't completely ready.

Mike Weir is planning on returning to competition at the Valero Texas Open on March 26-29.

This is the report by Bob Weeks at, who wrote, "Weir has been home in Utah undergoing physio, including something called cold needling, which is kind of like acupuncture. Apparently it’s working." Weir withdrew during his last two starts with soreness in his right elbow. He's riding an 0-for-6 skid and should be avoided in all fantasy formats, as if you weren't already adhering to that cue. At this point of the season, it's all about the lefty getting back to the Masters where he has a lifetime exemption courtesy of his title in 2003. No matter how he's felt, he hasn't missed a start at Augusta National Golf Club since.

Mike Weir withdrew from The Honda Classic during his opening round.

His right elbow just wasn't ready. The lefty sprayed his tee ball at the par-4 11th well left of the fairway before calling it quits. He was 6-over-par through 10 holes with one birdie, three bogeys and two doubles. Golf writer Lorne Rubenstein was walking with Weir, who told Rubenstein, "I'm not going to hit another ball until I get this figured out. ... "I can't swing the way I want to. I like to have a cup in my right wrist, and I can't do that." There is no timetable for recovery and treatment. While all of this happened this morning, Weir would need to make a significant turnaround to warrant our attention in any format in the future.

In an interview on Tuesday announcing the teams for the RBC Canada Cup on July 6, Mike Weir added some detail about his sore right elbow.

"It’s not pain it’s just really tightness and a lack of mobility from that tightness that’s bothering me and causing me some problems," he said. "The doctor has assured me it’s not re-injured . . . I just have to get it to calm down a little bit." The lefty withdrew after just 25 holes of the Northern Trust Open. He was 11-over-par at the time. It was his fifth straight week on the road, none of which yielded a payday. In fact, he hasn't broken par in 13 consecutive rounds. Given the condition of his injury, consider him a question mark for this week's Honda Classic, but only duffer leaguers should have any interest in an investment.

Mike Weir is scheduled to compete in next week's Honda Classic.

After withdrawing from the Northern Trust Open today, Weir wrote two entries on Twitter: "Thx everyone for ur concern. Training hard lately, and I’m feeling some tenderness in my elbow in the last 2 days. ... Decided to get it checked out now to prevent injury. Looking forward to getting back in the action very soon." If he's able to give it a go at PGA National next week, he'll be attempting to end an 0-for-4 skid in the tournament. He's also gone 10 consecutive rounds in competition on the course without a red number.

Mike Weir withdrew from the Northern Trust Open during his second round, citing an elbow injury.

The lefty started on the 10th hole at Riviera Country Club and sat 4-over-par through seven holes before calling it quits. He was 11-over through 25 holes. It's the ninth time he's withdrawn mid-tournament in 415 career PGA TOUR starts. Today's drops him to 1-for-8 on the season. He hasn't broken par in 13 consecutive rounds that he's completed. UPDATE: Jeff Brooke of the The Globe and Mail added on Twitter: "Mike Weir WD @NTrustOpen with injury to same elbow he had surgically repaired in '11. Elbow has bothered him for 2 weeks. h/t @AP, @PGATOUR"
Feb 20 - 12:38 PM

Mike Weir has won the Northern Trust Open two times and returns for another crack at Riviera Country Club this week.

The lefty has finished outside the top 70 in each of his last six trips here, but the two wins are still nice to look at. He arrives ranked 173rd in the FedExCup standings after missing six of his seven starts to open the season. His glory days have come and gone but this is one of those weeks where a return to the top of the leaderboard isn't out of the question.
Feb 17 - 11:11 PM

Mike Weir took home the super-sized check at the 2003 Humana Challenge and returns for another look this week.

The Canadian has four top 10s on his Humana resume but any good hiring manager would be quick to point out his recent slide of three straight missed cuts at the event. Weir is just 1-for-3 to start the new season after finishing an impressive 109th on the money list last season. Followers of the lefty may choose to pick this stop as a worthy investment given the ease and short nature of the courses, but his best days are still behind him.
Jan 21 - 8:37 PM

Mike Weir secured his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card almost entirely due to his solo-second finish at the 2014 HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The money earned from his lone top-40 finish last season, along with a few other dollars along the way, was enough to place him inside the top 125 on the PGA TOUR money list last season, but his 139th standing in the FedExCup standings caused him to miss the Playoffs. Three starts into the new season, he has made just one cut, but it did go for a respectable T21 at the CIMB Classic. Fans of the Canuck shouldn't celebrate too much, as the limited-field event didn't feature a cut. One of his goals this season should be to become a more consistent player on a weekly basis, but it's too soon for gamers to buy into that being a reality.

Mike Weir will get introduced to Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club at this week's CIMB Classic.

The Canuck missed the cut at the Open for his 2014-15 season debut, but won't have to worry about that in a no-cut event like the CIMB. Weir showed flashes of a bounce-back at times last year, but he still remains 20-for-77 since the start of 2011. Anything can happen when four rounds of golf are guaranteed, but the Canadian is a long-shot this week.

Mike Weir is set to play the Open after finishing inside the top 125 on the 2013-14 PGA TOUR money list.

It was nice to see the Canuck earn his spot on TOUR this season after using a career earnings exemption a year ago. Weir earned $745,200 of his $854,413 with a runner-up finish at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. That's hardly a reason to invest too much equity in his direction, as it appears he may have captured lightening in a bottle for one special week.

Mike Weir missed the cut at the Wyndham Championship by two strokes and won't compete in the FedExCup Playoffs, but he'll be fully exempt in 2014-15 by virtue of finishing inside the top 125 on the money list.

The lefty went 9-for-25 with just one top-40 finish, but it was a lucrative solo second at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. His prize money from that start was worth more than 87 percent of his season haul of $854,413. That slotted him 104th in earnings, his best effort since placing 26th in 2009.
