Mike Weir makes first cut since 2014 at Rocco Forte Open on European Tour


Mike Weir made his first cut in a professional golf event since 2014 on May 19 when he made the 36-hole cut at the European Tour's 2017 Rocco Forte Open in Italy.

The Canadian shot 5-under total to get through to the weekend, despite making a triple-bogey 7 on his final hole to make it a little closer to the cut line than he would have liked.

The 2003 Masters champion had not made a cut in 36 consecutive tournaments, going back to the 2014 RBC Canadian OpenĀ on the PGA Tour, where he finished T-66. Weir finished T-21 in the 2014 CIMB Classic that October, but that event has no cut.

Weir has won eight times on the PGA Tour and has 11 total worldwide victories, but the 47-year-old has struggled in the last three years.
