Draper, Utah's Mike Weir

easportsIn this country, we're very proud of Mike Weir. The man won the 2003 Masters and he hails from Bright's Grove, Ontario. He's Canadian and we don't want you to forget it!

Those who play EA Sports' Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 will hear Weir announced as being from Draper, Utah. You see, they don't care about where you're from, only where you primarily reside.

Well that sucks!

Booner,

Weir's just as Canadian as Gretzky and Pam Anderson. I'm sick of these people considering themselves Canadian. If you are so proud to Canadian don't leave your country. Personally I feel Sundin is more Canadian than Mike Weir. I'm glad they say he's from Utah in the game, he ain't Canadian to me...and he's an overrated golfer.

Sundin works for a Canadian franchise. If he played for Colorado, he'd be as Canadian as Jaromir Jagr.

Weir was born in raised in Canada. When it came time to go to university/college, we couldn't offer him the same opportunities in the world of gold as he'd get at Brigham Young University. That sucks, but that's a fact.

Same deal with Pam Anderson and Gretzky. They leave because we can't offer them the same opportunities in their chosen profession. Funnily enough, all three married Americans, meaning we've lost them forever.

Should we ask them to turn in their passports? Should we even blame them for leaving? You can take Weir out of Canada, but you can't take Canada out of Weir.

Honestly, I still hate Weir and think he's overrated....let the Americans take him, I could care less.

Dude, it's golf. Weir could hail from Mars for all I care. Except for weekends he wins a major - then he's pure Canuck.

I think that you're Canadian (or any nationality) when you're "stamped" with the national anthem playing everyday at the same time at school, watching Canadian media, etc. When you grow up in a country you become in tune with the culture, and probably adopt it to a degree. It's always a part of you. This is how a nationality like Poland still exists, despite being wiped off maps for over a century.
