Abbotsford golfers impress at World Cup of Golf

The Ledgeview Golf and Country Club duo of Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor helped lead Canada to its best finish since 1985 at the World Cup of Golf event, which wrapped up in Australia on Sunday.

After opening rounds of 68 and 73, the duo shot a second-best 64 in round three and a fourth-best in round four to finish with a four-round total of 271 to finish tied for fourth overall. Round three saw the pair combine for eight eagles.

The performance was Canada’s best showing since 1985 when Dave Barr and Dan Halldorson won the event.

Hadwin and Taylor both played several years at the Abbotsford golf course, and Hadwin, as the highest ranking Canadian player on the PGA Tour, got to choose a fellow Canadian to play with him for the World Cup. He chose his Ledgeview mate.

The Belgian team of Thomas Pieters and Thomas Detry took home the top prize shooting 265, with Australia and Mexico both shooting 268. Canada and Denmark both had equal scores of 271.

Ledgeview president Chris Gaudet said the club is proud at the efforts of two of its most distinguished alumni.

“As a society we feel so privileged that Adam and Nick chose to announce their intention to play together at the Ledgeview member appreciation event this summer,” he stated in a press release. “To have two gentlemen coming from not only the same city but the same home club representing Canada on the national stage is a truly extraordinary. As a board we are so honoured that Ledgeview could play some part in both Adam and Nick’s development as not only great golfers but truly amazing global citizens. We are so proud of their performance.”
