I'm Going out on a Limb Here and Saying He's Probably the Hometown Favorite


We as Americans just can't really grasp how important it is for our countrymen to win things. The reason being we have so many good athletes and sports teams that other than soccer, we're the sports mecca. People want to play on the PGA Tour, in the MLB or the NFL and definitely the NBA. We get the best because we host the best, and mostly because we produce the best. It taints our view on nationalism in sports.

That is why it's refreshing and exciting to see guys like Mike Weir, a full-blood Canadian, tied for the lead at the Canadian Open, an event he has never won (However, his first PGA Tour victory was the Air Canadian Championship, in 1999).

Weir is golf to Canada. He has made the game popular and with his Masters victory in 2003, put our northern neighbors on the map.

I hate to keep saying this, but it seems every week a new story unfolds to make us forget how much golf sucks without Tiger around. If Lefty could duel someone like Sergio or Vijay at the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup could be somewhat competitive, I'd consider the second half of 2008 as good, if not better, than the last few years on tour.
