Mike Weir, coming off his second-place finish at Pebble Beach, will try to keep up some momentum as he returns to George Thomas’ Riviera for the Nissan. He’s won there the last two years in a row. If he’d had even a few putts fall in the final round at the AT&T, he’d have given Phil Mickelson a run for his money. But at least he is making some putts, a big improvement over his earlier rounds this year.
While Weir’s looking to win, golf historian and architect Geoff Shackelford continues his series on Golfobserver.com about the problems in restoring Riviera. Guess what? I don’t think Geoff’s a big fan of Tom Fazio.
