IT may look like a gaggle of Winnipeggers got lost on the way a Minnesota Wild game, but that’s not the case this week in the Twin Cities.
The local lads are cheering on Canadian Mike Weir at the PGA Championship at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minn. They were decked out in Team Canada hockey jerseys and helmets on Thursday, when temperatures reached 28 C, but each had a beer in hand soon after Weir teed off at 8:55 a.m., according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
“That’s kind of a national thing, too,” local firefighter Jason Wiebe, 36, told Star-Tribune’s Jerry Zgoda.
Wiebe’s travelling companions include Casey Case, Jason Miller, Paul Kingerski, Glen Gray, Justin Smook and Brian Milne.
The fans didn’t get to see Weir at his best however, as he finished Friday at 11 over par and missed the cut.
