Weir still searching for success

By making the cut last week at the AT&T National, Mike Weir ended a streak of nine consecutive starts without making the cut (10 if you include his WD in Puerto Rico).

It was a step in the right direction for Weir, who has been plagued by a torn ligament in his right elbow since last season. It was also a short-lived one for Weir, who is 3 over through 16 holes here in the opening round of the John Deere Classic.

Still, just making it to the weekend would give confidence to the Canadian.

"It would," Weir told the Montreal Gazette. "I need to play on weekends. I need to start gaining some confidence back for sure. I need to get some good rounds under my belt so I can start seeing things. Take some positives and move forward."

So far in the first round at TPC Deere Run, Weir, however, has six bogeys to just three birdies.

"I got into bad habits with my game when I was injured," Weir told the newspaper. "I'm trying to iron them out and take the things that I'm working on and trust them.

"I need to start finding some more fairways and I need to start having fun myself. Finding fairways and making some putts brings the enjoyment back. Playing out of the trees and deep rough is not much fun at all."
