This just crossed my desk from the fine folks at IMG Sports. Turns out Mike Weir, who skips the Telus Skins Game because he has Bell Canada on his hat, will turn up to play in PEI this summer in the made-for-TV event Legends of Golf. The first year was Jack Nicklaus versus Tom Watson in a remake of the “Duel in the Sun,” except this one was in PEI, not at Turnberry. Rumor had it that Greg Norman was going to take on Nick Faldo this year, but apparently that is now off.
I have always looked back fondly on playing at Crowbush Cove in 1998 and am very excited about the chance to return to Prince Edward Island this summer, said Weir. Not only is PEI home to some of the best golf in Canada, but its also home to some of the friendliest people you could meet. I dont get the chance to play in Canada as much as I would like, so I literally jumped at the chance to return to play in PEI.
So Weir is in, but who is he going to take on? My choice is clear.
