Mike Weir beats Tiger Woods in Presidents Cup
MONTREAL - Mike Weir did today what few have done: Survive a Tiger Woods comeback.
Trailing by one stroke with two holes to play, Weir held on to beat Woods 1-up in what was today’s most highly anticipated match-up.
Woods was down by as many as three points, but went on a torrid run on the back nine, winning four or five holes. But Woods could not close the deal on the 17, barely missing his birdie putt. Weir stepped up and made birdie.
On 18, the first time Woods had played the hole this week, his drive found the tall grass near the water. He ended up in the green side bunker in three. With Weir 15 feet from the pin, Woods needed to hole his chip. He nearly did, the ball stopped a foot short of the hole.
Woods then conceded the match.
“I had to play my absolute best today to beat him. It was a heck of a match,” Weir said.
