About Weir


Tim Campbell is a golf writer with the Winnipeg Free Press, Score magazine and other golf publications. The allure of the game didn't present itself to Tim until his first lesson at the age of 12, a session he and brother Chris reluctantly attended, but the seed grew to an ever-increasing attraction and enthusiasm a short time later. A left-handed player himself, Tim's ongoing fascination is with the mental side of the game and trying to shave a shot or two off his single-digit handicap. Originally from the Guelph and Kitchener, Ontario area, Tim now makes his home in Winnipeg. Scott Morrison is the sports editor of The Toronto Sun and a hockey analyst on CTV Sportsnet. He also enjoys the game of golf and hits from the left side. Scott's previous books have focused in the area of hockey, including The Days Canada Stood Still, which was about the 1972 Canada-Russia series, and Fire on Ice, about great international series. His most recent title was a best-seller about Wayne Gretzky called The Great One. Scott lives in Toronto with his wife Kathy and their son Mark.
