OAKVILLE, ONT. - Mike Weir put on a show for Canadian golf fans on Friday morning at Glen Abbey, and it could have been even more spectacular had it not been for a couple of unforced errors down the stretch.
The veteran golfer fired a second-round five-under-par 67 to get to four under for the tournament and ensure that he will be around for the weekend rounds of the Canadian Open. It’s looking as if minus-1 is going to be the projected cut line and Weir will easily be inside of that.
“It was a great day. It was one of those rounds that could have been really anything. I could have been 10 under pretty easily, I think,” Weir said after his round. “But I played great, and it was exciting to do that for the fans. Yesterday was so dull, one birdie and nothing happening at all, so it was great to feel that kind of support out there and give them something to cheer about.”
