Mike Weir scored his first win on the PGA’s senior tour last week.

The Bright’s Grove native finished the Insperity Invitational in Texas with a 10-under 134, helping him jump from 16th to 8th on the Champions Tour money list.

Weir, the 2003 Masters Champion, edged out John Daly, Tim Petrovic and David Toms at the 36-hole event, which wrapped on May 2.

Weir joined the senior tour a year ago after turning 50 and has earned $1.07 million through 14 events this season.

Before joining the senior circuit, Weir won eight times on the PGA Tour between 1999 and 2007, including The Tour Championship and a WGC event. He also posted 10 runner-up finishes.
