“Calgary –

Par for the course, Mike Weir aims to tee off with a bang at the upcoming Rogers Charity Classic in August. Formerly known as the Shaw Charity Classic, this event has always been a favorite for Weir, and he is determined to make his mark on the leaderboard once again.

Title Sponsorship Shake-up

Weir’s strategy for this year is simple – play smarter, hit more fairways, and sink more putts. After a sixth-place finish at the recent Insperity Invitational, Weir is on a roll and hungry for victory. His main competition? None other than fellow Canadian Stephen Ames, who has been on fire this season with two wins under his belt.

New Beginnings with Rogers

Excited to see Rogers Communications take the reins as the new title sponsor, Weir is grateful for their generous donation to kick-start fundraising for the tournament. With a history of success at Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club, Weir is ready to showcase his skills and hopefully become the first Canadian to clinch a PGA Tour Champions tournament on home soil.

Presidents Cup Captain

As if the stakes weren’t high enough, Weir will also be leading the International squad at the 2024 Presidents Cup. With his eyes set on victory at the Rogers Charity Classic and beyond, Weir is gearing up for an exciting year ahead.

The Rogers Charity Classic promises to be a thrilling event, drawing top talent and enthusiastic crowds. Weir’s journey to the top of the leaderboard is bound to be a gripping one, filled with ups and downs, triumphs and challenges. Will this be the year that Weir claims victory on home turf? Only time will tell.”
