After a promising start at Q-School

Hadwin comes up short at Q-School

Adam Hadwin will have to wait at least one more year to play full-time on the PGA Tour.

Adam Hadwin will have to wait at least one more year to play full-time on the PGA Tour.

The 24-year-old pro from Abbotsford fell short at the final stage of Q-School in La Quinta, Calif., finishing in a tie for 100th place at one over par. He had been aiming to finish among the top 25 (plus ties), which would have yielded him a PGA Tour card for next season.

Hadwin found himself in solid position through three rounds, sitting in a tie for 19th at seven under par after opening with rounds of 70, 69 and 70.

But Q-School is a grueling six-round grind, and Hadwin ran into some turbulence on Saturday, shooting a 76. On Sunday, he bogeyed three of his final four holes en route to a 75 that all but ended his hopes, and he finished up with a 73 in Monday’s final round.

The disappointment of Q-School aside, Hadwin’s exploits this season have thrilled Canadian golf fans. The Canadian Tour regular earned $440,752 US in five PGA Tour starts, including a made cut at the U.S. Open, and top-10 finishes at the RBC Canadian Open and the Open. He’s currently the highest-ranked Canadian in the World Golf Rankings, 237th overall.
