Mike Weir captures first PGA Tour Champions victory at Inspiration Invitation

Woodlands, Texas – Former Masters Champion Mike Weir won his first PGA Tour Champions match on Sunday, consisting with the 68-year-old under 4, and making the last mistake at the John Daly Inspiration Invitation.

Weir of Prides Grove, Ond., And Daly, built below the extension in The Woodlands, which was reduced to 36 holes by torrential rain earlier in the week.

Daly, who was playing on the team in front of Weir, was showing off his 9-iron 18th green when it cut a section and splashed next to the total head. He double-bogged for 69 and had to settle for runner-up.

Veer, who missed bird chances within 10 feet of holes 16 and 17, unwrapped it all and knew what he had to do. He shot his approach about 15 feet behind the hole and pushed his fist as he walked towards the green. He won by two shots.

“JD played better and it was unfortunate for him in the end,” Veer said. “It means a lot. I played well today. I’m a little further away. I made it harder for myself. But I shot the shots I needed. It’s so good.”

Due to rain in the opening round on Friday, the first round was not completed until Sunday morning and the match was reduced to 36 holes. It turned out to be a shootout, and Daly and Veer provided most of the action.

“It’s a tough battle there,” Veer said. “Thirty-six holes, so it was a fast one. In the end, one more match has come down to the last few holes, where you’re working hard to hit the shots in a timely manner, all I could do.

“It’s a great feeling. You want to stop yourself there, you want to see that you can pay for the hard work you have done. Do not get old in that position. This is what we all work for.”

This is Weir’s first victory on any tour since winning the Fries Electronic Open in Arizona in 2007.

The 50-year-old said there were times in the last few years when he struggled in his sport that he considered leaving the game of golf.

“It probably crossed my mind, but it wasn’t just me,” Veer said. “I’m a person trying to find a solution. That was my mentality.

“This is a new phase of life, the 50s. I tried to turn the page in my 40s. It was pathetic everywhere. So the 50s are the best. The specials of life and my game are on display. In a good place.”

Daley piled on a 25-foot eagle in the Bar-5 13 to get a two-shot lead, which seemed to be on his way. In the next group, Weir hit his approach with 3 on the 13th.

The Canadian fell back with a bogey on the 14th, but when Daly missed his 3-bar into the Bar-5 15 he took a break and had to settle evenly, making the Veer birds to catch him again.

Dolly couldn’t believe he hit the water on the final hole.

“I caught an interest on the 18th,” he said. “I hit 9-iron from about 155, I hit 9-iron from 141 there. I got a mouthful and got a bad break. But I can’t hit the ball better. I’m excited next week.”

This is the second win in several weeks for the Canadian on a major golf tour since Brooke Henderson captured the Hughal Air Premium L Open of the LPGA Tour on April 24. This is Smiths Falls, Ont.

The 50 and over round plays next week in the first of its five majors in the regional tradition.

Wire finished 134 under 10.

Daley finished second with David Toms and Tim Petrovic, who each finished with 71 runs. Bernhard Langer (69) and Bob Estes (68) finished fifth.
