After making the cut at the PGA Tour’s Greenbrier Classic on the weekend, Adam Hadwin is now the top Canadian in the World Golf Rankings.
Fresh off a fourth-place finish at the RBC Canadian Open at Vancouver’s Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club the previous week, Hadwin shot 70-71-68-68 at The Old White TPC in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. The 23-year-old Abbotsford golfer finished at three under par, tied for 32nd, and earned $32,486.
Hadwin, a Canadian Tour regular, earned his spot in the Greenbrier Classic field by virtue of his top-10 finish at the Canadian Open.
The result boosted Hadwin from 214th to 211th in the World Golf Rankings – one spot ahead of Calgary’s Stephen Ames. David Hearn (267), Graham Delaet (365) and Jon Mills (434) round out the top five Canadians. Mike Weir, the longtime standard-bearer for Canadian men’s golf, is ranked No. 521, ninth among Canucks.
