DeWitt Weaver Jr. will be greatly missed.
#GeorgiaPGAGrandSlamChampionBarbara and I are saddened to hear of the passing of our friend DeWitt Weaver. He was a truly wonderful man, and I was blessed to be able to call him a close friend for a very long time. We played a lot of golf together, and I thoroughly enjoyed our time on the course and off. Our hearts go out to Sheri, his wife of 58 years, and their entire family. The golf world lost a terrific champion and even better friend in DeWitt Weaver, and he will be greatly missed.

Played with Mr Weaver first two rounds at the Georgia Open in 2002. His grandkids were all following us. He was very nice to me. I’ll always remember that.
