Today is both Mike Weir’s and Jim Furyk’s 40th birthday. To celebrate this event, I went golfing today. Thanks guys.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Mike Weir several times. The picture here is of me, Mike and my two youngest kids.
In person Weir is intense, has very “steely” eyes and is extremely athletic looking. Weir lives a few minutes down the road from me so I can call him my neighbor.
Weir improved for 2008?
I’m very happy to see Mike leading into the final round of the Mercedes tomorrow and his swing looks great. He’s made a few swing tweaks and is obviously coming off of some momentum from last season’s finish.
What looks even better than his swing tweaks so far is his putting. His stroke looks very pure, confident and right on line. When Weir is in the zone with his putter, nobody is better from 5-10 feet.
Best of luck Sunday Mike!
