The Official "When Will Mike Weir Make A Cut?" Thread

13 posts in this topic

Poor guy, almost could have called it the "When Will Mike Weir Break Par?" thread.  Weirsy did however break par, (once), 11 WEEKS AGO at Pebble Beach.  Please tell me this isn't a Duval/ Ian Baker-Finch situation....he looked pretty bad last year too.

Based on what I've read and heard about his injury problem he might be lucky to get back to David Duval status. The guy has been saying for months his elbow is feeling better and his game is improving yet his scores don't show it. I'd be more worried he ends up like Michael Campbell which ironically I thought I saw he was playing decent this week.

No, he really didn't. Of all the guys in the S&T; before and after charts, Mike Weir should be left out of the discussion. They didn't get his game anywhere near where it was from 2002-2005. Weir may have needed the change of direction that S&T; provided, but in the end it was just delaying the inevitable. By the time he went that route, his career was over.

He spent 110 weeks in the OWGR top 10 from 2001 to 2005. He did seem to have a resurgence with A&P;, but like a lot of players with "new" coaches, he plateaued and lost interest. The injury bug might have hit before or after the split, but it didn't help. When going back only as far as 2007, it does appear he was more successfull with S&T;, but there's no way to prove he made a mistake, that he wouldn't have been struggling with S&T; as well. There are a few guys doing quite will now with it, but Dean Wilson and Charlie Wi aren't exactly burning up the OWGR either these days.

Weirsy played to his potential for a handful of seasons - more than most players ever do. Now he seems to be done until he gets healthy, which isn't likely to happen while he's still slogging away trying to make cuts..

Lots of guys with injury problems never make it back, especially if, like Weir, they lack the distance necessary to easily birdie the par 5's. The rest of their game has to be spot on. As late as 2010, he had an OK, but not great year, but 2011 is really tough. Hope he can get back to his usual self, but you never know.

Swing patterns matters less to pros. If they are on the PGA Tour, they got a good swing. S&T; might work for some, others not. Even with a good swing they will vary in performance and still need a world class shortgame and putting to compete in the top. Only Tiger Woods has shown inhuman abilities over the last 15 years. A small change in impact angle can make a huge difference. On top of everything else you got the mental part.

I don't know specifically what Weir is struggling with, but I do hope he re-gains form soon.

I am a Mike Weir fan but his game has disappeared, some of that could certainly be attributed to his nagging injuries. His stats are brutal as noted above, really I cannot foresee him ever returning to the form he had previously.

I hope he can make a comeback. He's a Canadian golfer whom I admire, and he's a lefty! :)

It's 100% related to his injury problems and not him changing coaches. He was one of the best golfers in the world for a long time and a swing change might set him back a little but not to the lows he has reached. I wish the guy luck but a nagging injury can easily end a great career.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
