He shot 77 today. I hope he isn't done, but it is hard to imagine a comeback at this point. Keep in mind that with his length he needs to be really, really good to compete. An average Mike Weir is in trouble, and he is far from even being average right now.
If he was a longer hitter I'd be more hopeful for a turnaround, but as it is I am not too optomistic. Still a fan, but I think he's done.
He's not done if he loses his card.
He is 12th place in PGA Tour career earnings and can use that to get into almost any event he wants this year.
Appleby finished 141st on the money list in 2009 and "lost" his card, but then he played 31 events in 2010 because he was in the top 25 in career earnings as well.
I didn't mean "done" as in not able to play anymore, I meant "done" in the sence that he can't perform anymore. There are a few guys out there who are using various exemptions that are, for all intents and purposes, done.
never clicked on this thread before. here are a few thoughts.
was at us open at pebble last year. only two really wobbly shots i saw were by mike weir and aaron baddely. both stack and tilters. although i think mike was tied for first round lead.
pretty surprised he's #12 in money winning, but also won more tourneys that i thought too.
i haven't seen too much mention of weir in canadian being in danger of losing his card, but i thought he would be in danger. was he in top 150 or even 175 last year?
i will say that the most vociferious "mike weir is finished" was a month before he won the masters. i think it was "is finished". maybe it was that he had absolutely no chance at all in majors (the masters in particular)
It is pretty indicative of the big $$ era he played in. If you look at total tourneys won and placing he'd be much lower. Look where poor Jack is on the overall career earning list...OMG...
Don't want to derail the thread, but imagine how much money guys like him and arnie would make today with the money the way it is. They both make ~25 mil in endorsements as it is, but wow. it's crazy to think of.
