The most important two weeks of Abbotsford golfer Adam Hadwin’s professional career begin today in Columbus, Ohio.
Hadwin is in the field for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, the third of four stops in the inaugural Web.com Tour Finals. The Finals bring together the top 75 money earners on the Web.com Tour money list and players who finished 126-200 on the PGA Tour FedExCup points list in a four-tournament battle for, essentially, 25 PGA cards for the 2014 season.
Hadwin has had a forgettable first two tournaments, missing the cut in both of the first two stops in this golf playoff. He still has a chance to earn his card, but coming into this week, he sits $15,875 back of the final card-holding position. Winner’s share in this week’s tourney picks up $180,000.
Taylor in tough While Hadwin works towards his PGA card, Abby golfer Nick Taylor is looking to take his next step in the same process – mainly jumping from the PGA TourCanada to the Web.com Tour. Taylor is oh, so close to earning his Web.com tour card, but he is running out of time. The top five money-winners on the Canadian tour this year earn Web.com cards, and Taylor sits seventh overall. He is less than $4,000 from fifth, going into this week’s final tournament, the Tour Championships of Canada, at the Sunningdale Golf & Country Club, in London, Ont.
