THE GOLFER - MIKE WEIR
One of the highest-profile athletes to ever call Canada home, Mike Weir has been the country’s most dominate golfer over the past decade. A three-time winner of the Lionel Conacher Award as Canada’s top male athlete, an eight-time PGA Tour winner, including the 2003 Masters, as well as a representative for Canada on four Presidents Cup teams, Weir is recognized as a leading professional golfer not only in Canada, but around the world.
Always regarded as a scrappy, tactical golfer who utilizes a world-class short game and putting as his weapons to make birdies, Weir has excelled on many of the greatest and most challenging courses in the world. Many of his outstanding showings in major championships have occurred on some of the game’s most fabled stages, including U.S. Opens at Shinnecock, Winged Foot and Bethpage Black; British Opens at Royal Troon and Camoustie; as well as PGA Championships at Medinah, and Oak Hill.
Additionally, several of his victories have come on the best courses in the world, including the Masters at Augusta National, the World Golf Championship at Valderrama, and two victories at the Nissan Open at Riviera Country Club. Additionally the world watched his stunning victory at Royal Montreal over Tiger Woods in the singles competition during the final round of the 2007 Presidents Cup.
Recent studies show Canadians view Mike as a proud Canadian, and a consummate family man with wide appeal inside and outside of Canada. They also see him as honest and with a strong sense of integrity, who acts professionally on and off the course. These are traits that make Weir Golf Design an ideal partner for those seeking to create a legacy and business within the golf course industry.
