Mike Weir Profile Information

  • I’ve had many moments that stand out over my career and life — the one that stands out the most to me is in the days following the 2003 Masters when I had the honor of dropping the ceremonial first puck at the @NHL playoffs between the @MapleLeafs and the @PhiladelphiaFlyers. The crowd was so loud I think I can still hear them. ❤️

Thank you Canada and all of my fellow Canucks for the support and love over the years. Proud to be Canadian today. 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

  • Rolling putts gives you better distance control and allows the ball to take its true break and follow your read. As you strike, your goal is  to minimize how much the ball SKIDS after impact — you want to get the ball ROLLING end-over-end as soon as possible.

A simple drill I use is drawing a line on the ball and then watching that line as you putt with an iPhone video. 

Here’s what you’re looking for: you want to ball to launch straight at first and THEN start to tip down.
⬇️———

If the line starts to tip down too early you might not have enough loft on your putter or you may be forward pressing too much. ⬇️⬇️⬇️———

If the line starts to go UP ⬆️——— or backwards you are getting too much loft and your ball will skid.

Give it a try and notice how your ball is rolling after you strike — getting this just right will result in better speed control and more consistent putting.

  • We couldn’t be more thankful to those who donated to bring us to our goal! The Mike Weir Foundation has matched the $200k and @michellemoney and I couldn’t be more excited to hand over a big, $400,000 check to the new ACCESS Open Minds center in Sarnia, Ontario!

Children’s mental health has been a long passion of mine and through the foundation, we have been privileged to help a handful of groups across Canada. 
The work they are doing is important — there is a lot of talk about the problems related to mental health in kids, teens, and young adults but not a lot of discussion about what approaches work. This is where ACCESS Open Minds is focused. 
This donation will help with the launch of their new site at the corner of Lochiel and Front streets in downtown Sarnia — meaning that a lot of youth will have access to the help they need. 
Thank you everyone for your generous donations, thank you to ACCESS for partnering with us, and  thank you Wendy Bennett, Jim Weir, and Rob Ravensberg for helping to make this a reality!

  • A “KEY THOUGHT” or feel is crucial and helps tie all the elements of your swing together without overwhelming your brain.

There can be so much running through your head about posture, stance, rhythm, grip, ball flight, conditions, etc... and a busy mind is not a good mind for golf.

A feel or simple thought lets your athleticism be fully realized.

My key thought for my game is “ROTATION IN GOOD POSTURE.” What’s yours???

  • Growing up in Sarnia, Ontario I always thought I would be a hockey player. 🇨🇦 This flashback is when I was 10 while I still had my real teeth 😂 you tend to loose some playing that sport.
