Mike Weir has climbed golf’s tallest hill. Back in 2003, Weir became the first Canadian birthed gamer to win a significant. He won The Masters by defeating Len Mattiace in a playoff.
” It’s been a while so it’s hard to keep in mind that yet it’s certainly what you desire for,” said Weir.
Yet that was 17 years earlier. A great deal has actually altered ever since. The 50-year-old now sports glasses and also no more uses the PGA Tour. He’s playing the role of older statesman on the Korn Ferry Tour.
” I enjoy playing them as well as I hope that they delight in playing with me,” Weir stated.
Make indisputable concerning it, the Korn Ferry Tour is not the PGA Tour. So the concern is, why is a golfer as completed as Weir still grinding away in golf’s minor leagues versus players half his age?
” This game can modest you swiftly and you can’t lug your vanity with you when you play this game,” claimed Weir that once defeated Tiger Woods in a songs match at the President’s Cup.
” If I simply had a perspective that I’m a Masters champion as well as I should not be out here, I would not prepare myself well for the PGA Tour Champions as well as I would certainly obtain my butt handed to me out there by those 50 as well as older guys.”
As well as while Mike waits on the 50 and also over circuit to return to, the 8-time scenic tour champion isn’t ready for the sun to set on his golf profession.
” What’s left for Mike Weir to achieve in this video game?” asked CBS4’s Eric Christensen.
” I don’t know, who understands,” claimed the single 3rd ranked gamer worldwide. “I’m heading out there with an open mind so who recognizes.”
Mike understands just how to win. He’s done it before and also he wants to do it once more.
