In February, Mike Weir was in position to win for the first time—anywhere—in more 13 years. He led by four shots through eight holes during the final round at the Cologuard Classic in Tucson, Arizona, but Kevin Sutherland tracked him down to snatch away the victory and keep Weir’s winless streak alive.
On Sunday, at the Insperity Invitational at The Woodlands, Texas, Weir didn’t let another one slip away.
In his 14th start on the PGA Tour Champions, Weir snapped a winless streak that had stretched to 13 years, six months and two days.
John Daly briefly held a two-shot lead after he eagled the par-5 13th hole but Weir eagled the same hole a few minutes later, knotting things up at 10 under. Those two dueled from there but after smoking a drive on 18, Daly, playing a hole ahead of Weir, came up short on his approach shot and splashed down in the lake in front of the green. He would close with a double bogey 6 and a final-round 69.
Weir, who stuffed several approach shots on Sunday, did so again when he needed to the most on the final hole. He then two-putted for par to seal the win by two over Daly, Tim Petrovic and David Toms.
Daly, who turned 55 four days ago, earned his lone Champions win at the Insperity four years ago.
Toms was trying to make it an LSU double on Sunday. Just a couple hours earlier, Sam Burns earned his first PGA Tour win at the Valspar Championship. Toms, a mentor and friend to Burns, shot a final-round 71.
The Insperity was reduced from 54 holes to 36 with most of Friday and Saturday impacted by heavy rain. It was the first Champions event to get cut to 36 holes since the 2018 Principial Charity Classic in Des Moines, Iowa. Second-round leader Tom Lehman was declared the champion there after thunderstorms throughout the final day.
