Former Masters champion ends 14-year winless streak

Mike Weir wins Champions Tour’s weather-shortened Insperity Invitational by 2 strokes, holding off John Daly and 2 others

14: Number of years since Mike Weir had won a tournament on any major professional tour. Weir, a left-handed Canadian and former Masters champion, shot 4-under 68 on Sunday for a 10-under 134 total and two-stroke victory in the Champions Tour’s weather-shortened Insperity Invitational at The Woodlands (Texas) Country Club. It was the first victory for Weir, who will turn 51 on May 12, since Oct. 21, 2007, when he won the Fry’s Electronics Open for his eighth title on the PGA Tour. Weir won the 2003 Masters in a playoff against Len Mattiace. American John Daly, who was treated for bladder cancer in September, finished two strokes back, in a tie for second with fellow Americans Tim Petrovic and David Toms. (For scores, click here.)
