Weir rolls in ridiculously long putt

By Mike McAllister, PGATOUR.COM

FORT WORTH, Texas – Not much has gone right for Mike Weir this season. He’s only made one cut in eight starts this year, and had to withdraw at another event. And unless he makes a late rally, he’s not in position to make the cut this week at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

But he did have a nice moment at the par-3 13th on Friday, rolling in a putt of 85 feet, 1 inch for a birdie. It’s the third longest putt made on the PGA TOUR this year.

Weir is 2 over on his round and 4 over for the tournament with seven holes to play. The projected cut line is even par.
