This cut will go deeper than most for Mike Weir.
For the 11th straight start, the Canadian failed to make it to the weekend -- this time at the RBC Canadian Open.
“I don't know,” Weir said when asked to put his second straight 2-over 72 into perspective. “I need a little time to think about it, and see what I can draw on it and see what we can get ready for next week.”
Pat Fletcher, who was born in England, was the last Canadian to win this event. Carl Keffer is the only Canadian-born champion, winning in 1909 and 1914.
Weir, who has yet to make a cut this season, has failed to break par in his last seven rounds on the PGA TOUR. He has struggled since tearing a ligament in his elbow in 2010.
Other Canadians were more fortunate this week. David Hearn, Matt McQuillan, Albin Choi, Matt Hill and Graham DeLaet all advanced to the weekend.
