In the traveling circus that is the PGA Tour, rife with players, caddies and officials hop-scotching the globe, the muscular Weathers is at tournaments 36 weeks during the year. His latest recognition came from massaging Phil Mickelson’s injured left wrist during the Memorial Tournament and the United States Open, but Weathers has worked with as many as 40 players on the Tour.
The son of a Choctaw Indian father and a mother of Irish descent, Weathers took a circuitous route to his occupation. He grew up in Napa Valley, Calif., graduated from high school and joined the Army before becoming a Green Beret.
