Adam Hadwin seems to be making a seamless transition from the Web.com Tour to the PGA Tour.
The 26-year-old Abbotsford pro fired the day’s best round, an eight-under par 63, to finish tied for 10th place at the $6.2-million Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas on Sunday.
The bogey-free round was Hadwin’s lowest in 13 PGA Tour starts.
The Vegas tourney was just Hadwin’s second as a PGA Tour regular. He recently earned his exempt status by finishing as the No. 1 player on the 2014 Web.com Tour.
Hadwin finished the event at 13-under par. That was seven strokes behind winner Ben Martin of Greenwood, S.C. Hadwin made $137,433.
Fellow Abbotsford resident Nick Taylor, who was also playing in his second event as a PGA Tour member, shot a one-under 70 Sunday to finish at five-under par and tied for 56th spot. He earned $13,764.
Sunday’s finish was Hadwin’s third top 10 on the PGA Tour. He tied for fourth place at the 2011 RBC Canadian Open at Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club in Vancouver and then tied for seventh the following week at the Frys.com Open in northern California.
