Mike Weir will be playing in Spain after 12 years
Mike Weir is in the field of the Open de Andalucía Costa del Sol, a European Tour staged event, scheduled to start from March 15 to 18, 2012.
The 41-year-old Canadian professional golf player will be playing in Spain for the first time in 12 years and is confident to display some good skills at the Aloha Golf Club, Andalucia, Spain.
"I'm looking forward to returning to Spain next week for the Open de Andalucía," Weir said.
He stated, "I have very fond memories of winning a World Golf Championship event in Spain early in my career, and it will be special to play there again".
He further added, "I have always enjoyed the golf courses in Spain and have heard that Aloha is an outstanding golf course. It will be a fun week".
The 2003 Masters Tournament winner is making the field more attractive. He will be joining and competing against the other major winners like José Paul Lawrie, María Olazábal, Rich Beem and Michael Campbell.
Weir had also won the title of the American Express Championship in 2000, a World Golf Championship event.
He defeated Lee Westwood by two strokes lead and displayed an amazing performance throughout the four-day tournament.
This was his only WGC win, as he impressively bagged the glory at the same golf course, where the Open de Andalucía Costa del Sol is scheduled to be staged this year.
He has several memories from the Spanish golf course. He is planning to repeat the winning history there and will try to card some good scores on the leaderboard.
Weir has been playing at the Professional Golf Association Tour since February. He has played three tournaments up till now and was unable to make the cut at all.
It was AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Mayakoba Golf Classic and The Honda Classic where he lost the cut and faced disqualifications.
Hence, now he has different plans for the European Tour events. He is trying to improve his game and also hopes to be the winner this year.
Since 2010, he has not won any professional event and needs to improve his game for better safe future.
The Open de Andalucía Costa del Sol may be a career turning event for him, as he loves to play at the Spanish Aloha Golf Club.
