Mike Weir goes into this week’s U.S. Open at Pebble Beach with impressive putting statistics, which is comforting considering the slick greens that traditionally characterize the second major of the year.
As for the rest of his game lately, Weir himself describes it as “not good,” but if he can find his A-game, which traditionally features precision over power, the stage could be set for a fine showing at Pebble Beach.
Although he’s best-known for the green jacket he won at the 2003 Masters, Weir also has a pretty impressive record at the U.S. Open, where he’ll be joined this year by Calgary’s Stephen Ames and Canadian Tour player Kent Eger of Regina.
Weir visited Pebble Beach recently and talks about what he’ll be facing there in my recent Sun Media column. You can read that here.
