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.

Mike Weir served notice in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-32=66.

He went 5-for-5 in scrambling and converted four birdies, including on both par 5s, the latter dropping from 10'9" at No. 15. His longest par breaker of the round disappeared from seven yards away just off the left side of the putting surface at the par-4 10th. Weir's testiest par save measured 15'6" at the par-4 11th where he found the right rough both off the tee and on approach. It's been a successful season for the lefty in the context that he'll be fully exempt in 2014-15 without the use of a career earnings exemption, the second and final of which he burned this season. However, while he's 98th on the money list, he's just 134th in the FedExCup standings. Weir has not qualified for the Playoffs since 2009.

Mike Weir will have the crowd on his side at this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Weir has long been the favorite son of Canuck fans and makes his 24th start in this event. With the exception of his Masters win, it's arguable that the highlight of his career came at Royal Montreal Golf Course in the 2007 Presidents Cup. Tiger Woods awaited Weir in the Sunday Singles match at the Presidents Cup and the diminutive Canadian slayed the giant. At 128th in the FedExCup standings, Weir needs to make a move if he hopes to earn a spot into the Playoffs.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
