The trials of Mike Weir at Pebble Beach

Friday morning: Weir one off lead at U.S. Open
Saturday morning: Mike Weir implodes in Round 2
Monday morning: Mike Weir says rueful goodbye to Pebble Beach

70. 79. 83. 75.

Not exactly a weekend to remember for Sarnia's Mike Weir, and why should he? This is a guy who has not won a PGA tournament since 2007. He's been in the top 10 just once in his last 11 major tournaments. This is a guy who hasn't cracked the top 100 more times than he's come in the top 20 this year.

Sure, for some of us, we'd just love to be out on the course breaking 80 half the time. But Mike Weir was formerly #3 in the world after placing third in the US Open, coming two months after he won the Masters.

After the Skins game next week, Weir is going to head to Italy to drink wine until the British Open where he'll change his swing. That'll help. Get the man some waitresses, and anything can happen in this crazy sport.
