Questions about what professional golfer Adam Hadwin would do after his latest PGA Tour event at Torrey Pines were answered this week.
He’s back enjoying the great golfing weather on his hometown course, Ledgeview Golf and Country Club. Though he did make the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego (Jan. 24-27), he missed qualifying in Phoenix the next week and headed north to see his family and friends.
Hadwin showed up at Ledgeview on Wednesday with four Abbotsford buds – three Chris’s and Adam’s younger brother Kyle. When asked how the round went, he volunteered “It’s always fun coming back to Ledgeview” and by the sounds of the laughter in the group, he enjoys playing with golfers he grew up with.
Score wise, the Web.com Tour regular shot a tidy 66 but lost a small amount to Chris Clark, whose 75 with a 10 handicap secured the loonie but drew some poignant questions! Kyle Hadwin shot 76 as did Kris Howes, and Chris Gaudet’s 79 was high for him though he did manage to drive the 15th green. Everyone in the group remarked on the “great shape” and “dry condition” of the golf course for this time of year.
When asked where he heads next in his international travels, Hadwin revealed another tough trip upcoming. He flies out to Bogota, Colombia, to play in the Web.com Tour event on Feb. 25. Everyone at Ledgeview wishes him all success on the professional circuit again this year.
