Because of Spite, Weir likely to Turn Down Skins Game Invite
Bell Canada concluded their lengthy relationship with Mike Weir last year, and now Telus, a main competitor of Bell, is interested in having Weir back to their World Skins Game. Last year the event included Fat Boy John Daly, Canadian Stephen Ames, Colin Montgomerie of Scotland, Australian Geoff Ogilvy, and South African Retief Goosen (that’s right… a five-some). Weir hasn’t been invited to the World Skins Game since 2002, and it was at that event Telus decided Weirzy rockin the Bell cap wasn’t the best thing for their business. By doing that, Telus showed they might be somewhat intimidated by Bell Canada. Either that, or they're just doing their best to take the friend out of friendly competition. Now Telus would love to replace Stephen “I shit talked Tiger and then got punked” Ames with Masters champion Mike Weir. What do you think Mike? Are you up to it?
