Mike Weir submitted an 8-over-par 42-37=79 during the two-day opening round of the John Deere Classic before withdrawing from the event. No injury has been cited at the time.
The Canadian opened on the back and traded eight pars with one bogey before the turn. Things took a turn for the worse from there, carding two doubles, four bogeys, and a lone birdie as he made his way into the clubhouse. With the second round set to spill over into Saturday, he likely didn't want to bank on a 9-under round or something of that nature to make the cut, and called it quits early. This goes in the books as Weir's 13th career mid-event WD and he's now posted 25 straight missed cuts on the PGA TOUR. Aug 12 - 3:16 PM

Mike Weir checks into TPC Four Seasons Resort for his 14th playing of the AT&T Byron Nelson. UPDATE: Weir posted 9-over-par 73-76=149 to miss the cut by 11 strokes and as a result, reverts to Past Champion status for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

This is the 46-year-old's final start (of four) on a Minor Medical Extension. He's already burnt thru four in the Major Medical category. If the Canadian doesn't collect $669,670.00 (solo second or better), he'll drop to Past Champion status. He finished solo second here in 2014, his lone top 10 in 13 appearances, but at least it gives him a fighting chance. Weir has not made a cut this season in six starts and WD after a first-round 78 at the Heritage in his other. In fact, he's not cashed a paycheck in his last 35 events.

Mike Weir withdrew from the RBC Heritage following a 7-over-par 40-38=78 in the opening round. No injury has been reported as of yet.

The Canadian slammed his trunk early last week at the Masters and will slam his trunk even earlier this week. He walked off the course with a strokes gained:putting of 0.138 but lost 6.326 strokes:tee-to-green. He split five (of 14) fairways and landed just seven greens in regulation. Weir is now 1-for-24 since the start of the 2014-15 season. We will provide an update if any further news arises about a possible injury.

Mike Weir makes his first start of the 2015-16 TOUR season with his 19th straight visit to the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am where he's finished runner-up two times, most recently the weather-shortened 2009 version (54 holes) and again in 2005.

Overall, Weir has tallied seven top 10s at the AT&T, but missed seven cuts as well, including four of his last five. He's already burned both of his career money list exemptions and begins his 19th TOUR season on a combo of major and minor medical extensions (four apiece). The Canadian ended last season on a personal leave of absence following a mid-tourney WD at the John Deere, on the eve of his national open. Prior, he cashed one check in 18 starts (at a no-cut event). The 45-year-old, who announced his return on Dec. 1, shunned potential Tour rehab starts, opting instead for a pair of events on the European Tour over the past three weeks (both missed cuts), followed by some skiing at Alta. Three of his eight career titles have come in California, the last being the 2004 Nissan Open (his second win at Riviera CC), next week's TOUR stop.

Mike Weir and Sean O'Hair shot 7-under 65 in the first round of the Franklin Templeton Shootout.

This is the first we've seen of the lefty in televised golf since he took time off to attend to his family in the wake of a divorce. Weir competed in the TaylorMade Pebble Beach Invitational the week before Thanksgiving, where he made the 54-hole cut on the number before finishing 17 strokes adrift of champion Jeff Gove. As we relayed last week, the Canuck plans to resume his PGA TOUR schedule back at Pebble Beach in mid-February.

Mike Weir has planned to return to the PGA TOUR at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on Feb. 11-14.

The Canadian is scheduled to have fun at next week's Franklin Templeton Shootout first, however. Assuming he sticks with the commitment, it'll mark his first public action since taking time off for personal matters following the John Deere Classic in July. "I just want to get back to playing good golf, which I think I'm capable of doing," he said. "Right now I'm very motivated and I'm giving it one good go." Weir has eight starts on a medical extension to earn $669,670 or 410 FedExCup points. The second four starts are via a Minor Medical, so he'll be demoted to that category if he can't retain status in the Major Medical category in the first four. "I might mix in a few [ Tour] events to stay sharp, and I may even look at some events in Europe," added the 45-year-old. "I need to play, and play a lot to get back mentally as much as physically. That just takes you playing."

Mike Weir is scheduled to participate in the Franklin Templeton Shootout on Dec. 10-12.

This may or may not be Weir's first public action since leaving the PGA TOUR during the John Deere Classic July to address personal matters related to his children and divorce, but don't be surprised if it is. The lefty is in no hurry to return to the grind and he's equipped with a couple of medical extensions when he does. He and Retief Goosen tied for last in the 2014 Shootout, which is held at Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida.

Mike Weir starts the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season with a pair of medical extensions, but he doesn't have a firm time frame as to when he'll return to competition.

The lefty departed life on the road in July to attend to the needs of his two teenage daughters as he settled a divorce from his wife. Three months later, the sky has cleared a bit, so he's taking the moment to enjoy the view. "My peace of mind is better," he said. "Right now, not to have a time table for when I’m going to return lets me just work on my game at my pace. I’ll know when I’m ready." When he does, Weir will have eight starts on a medical extension to earn $669,670 or 410 FedExCup points. The first four starts (for his family crisis) are on a Major, the other four (for an elbow injury) are on a Minor. From our standpoint, it's merely status housekeeping as the 45-year-old hasn't had fantasy usable and consistent fantasy value in years.

In a follow-up to the news that we relayed earlier, Mike Weir released a statement to explain why he's taking time off indefinitely.

Here it is in its entirety: "To all my fans, I will be taking an indefinite leave of absence from golf competition effective today. Family is incredibly important to me and I have decided to take some time to focus on my personal life and children. Although there is no set timeline for my return, I love the game and will return when the time is right. It was extremely difficult to make the decision to forego this year’s RBC Canadian Open, as I love playing in front of the Canadian fans. At this time though I know the focus needs to be on my family. I look forward to teeing up again in front of Canada at our National Open very soon. Thank you to all my fans for their understanding and continued support." The lefty has missed play for injuries in recent years, but there's no timetable on recovery from emotional distress.

Mike Weir's 25th appearance at the RBC Canadian Open will have to wait as he's stepping away from golf for the time being, according to Lorne Rubenstein on Twitter.

Rubenstein wrote, "@MikeWeir has played 24 Canadian Opens. Will not play @RBCCanadianOpen next week. Taking indefinite leave from @PGATOUR for family reasons." After his debut in his national open in 1989, the Ontario native competed in every edition of the Canadian Open since 1992. His golf has been awful for most of this season, so he's unlikely to miss the grind.

Mike Weir has pulled out of this week's Barbasol Championship.

The lefty walked off TPC Deere Run on his second hole of the second round, citing personal reasons. Having turned 45 in May and with no form of which to speak, Weir is in the proverbial no-man's land of his career. Certainly set for life financially, tough decisions may be looming. He's played through slumps and injury with little success and there are only so many golf courses that he can tackle when the stars are aligned.

Mike Weir withdrew from the John Deere Classic during his second round due to personal reasons.

This is a strange one. He bogeyed the par-4 first hole, teed off on the par-5 second, and then walked off. With a 2-over 73 on Thursday, the lefty was 3-over through 19 holes and facing a mountain to climb to make the cut. That he didn't cite an injury is telling, but we don't have the information necessary to determine if his actual reasoning is regarding himself or something else in his life. What we do know is that this is his 11th mid-tournament WD in 423 PGA TOUR starts as a professional; it's his third this season. A T21 at the CIMB Classic remains his only payday in 18 starts in 2014-15. He's full exempt via the 2013-14 money list, so at least he's not burning exemptions a younger talent could use. For the time being, Weir is scheduled to play in next week's Barbasol Championship.

Mike Weir has decided not to compete at this week's Greenbrier Classic.

It's been an atrocious season for the eight-time PGA TOUR winner. He's just 1-for-17 and hasn't broken par in the 2015 portion of the schedule. Weir turned 45 years of age in May, so he's in no-man's land on his career arc. Of course, injuries haven't helped and his game is overwhelmed on most tracks.

Mike Weir preps for his 16th start of the season as he turns his attention to TPC Southwind at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The bottom has dropped out for the Canadian who is just 1-for-15 on the season. His lone cut made was back in the Fall Series, a T21 at the CIMB Classic. The lefty has two starts at the St. Jude Classic, finishing top 40 in both, but not returning since 2007. At this point, gamers should not be considering Weir for their rosters any week, unless they are playing a low-ball format.

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.
