Adam Hadwin has made the cut at the U.S. Open, thanks to a clutch performance on his final hole of the second round.

Hadwin, playing in his first major championship at Congressional Country Club at Bethesda, MD, was only able to finish 17 holes on Friday before play was suspended due to darkness. The 23-year-old Abbotsford golfer came back on Saturday morning to play his final hole – the par-5 ninth – knowing that he needed a birdie to get to four under par for the tournament and make the cut.

Hadwin did just that, capping an impressive rally where he birdied three of his final four holes of the round.

He followed that up by carding a two-over 73 in third-round play on Saturday morning. That left him at six over par, and in a tie for 55th as of noon Pacific time.
