Adam Hadwin burst onto the golf scene in 2011 with dominant performances on the Canadian Tour and high finishes at PGA events. The Abootsford, British Columbia resident made a name for himself on the Canadian Tour with victories at the Colombia Tour Championship in March and at the Vancouver Open in September. Yet his biggest moment came at the RBC Candian Open in July, where he finished T4 on his home soil and drew a passionate following from the gallery.
Hadwin also qualified for the U.S. Open and made the cut at Congressional, and he earned a T7 at the Frys.com Open in October. Hadwin was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and he attended the University of Louisville, where he was an All-America Honorable mention in 2009.
