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. Feb 26 - 10:33 AM

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 It's the ninth time he's withdrawn mid-tournament in 415 career PGA TOUR starts.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"

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.

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.
