Hadwin making strong bid for PGA Tour card

Abbotsford golfer Adam Hadwin is halfway home in his quest to earn a PGA Tour card.

Abbotsford’s Adam Hadwin is halfway home in his quest to earn a PGA Tour card.

Through three rounds at the final stage of PGA Q-School in La Quinta, Calif., the 24-year-old Abbotsford pro is tied for 19th at seven under par. The top 25 (plus ties) in the six-round event, which wraps up Monday, will earn their PGA Tour cards.

On Friday, Hadwin shot an eventful two-under 70 at PGA West’s Stadium course. Starting on the back nine, he birdied the 13th and 14th, but gave those strokes back with a double-bogey on 17. After a bogey on hole No. 1, Hadwin finished strong, with birdies on his last three holes of the day. He’s six strokes back of leader Will Claxton.

Hadwin, a Robert Bateman Secondary grad who played his NCAA golf at the University of Louisville, earned a pass to the final Q-School stage by finishing in the top 150 on the PGA Tour money list despite playing a limited schedule as a non-member. He made just over $440,752 US in five starts, including a made cut at the U.S. Open, and top-10 finishes at the RBC Canadian Open and the Frys.com Open.
