Adam Hadwin’s first PGA Tour event of the season was a roller-coaster ride to say the least.

After earning a spot in the field for the $6.1 million Farmers Insurance Open with a scorching 11-birdie performance during Monday qualifying, Hadwin took up residence on the first page of the leader board during Thursday’s opening round at Torrey Pines in San Diego. He put together a terrific six-under 66, carding six birdies and no bogies, and was tied for third, one shot back of co-leaders Brandt Snedeker and K.J. Choi.

The 25-year-old Abbotsford golfer shot a two-over 74 on Friday, dropping him to T31, but he was still well inside the cut line at -4.

Heavy fog on Saturday delayed the third round, and when play resumed on Sunday, Hadwin came back with a solid three-under 69.

But the wheels fell off in the fourth round – Hadwin found himself at 12-over through 15 holes before play was suspended on Sunday night, after registering seven bogies, one double-bogey and one triple.

That left Hadwin tied for 83rd overall at +5, and rather than finish off his final three holes on Monday afternoon, he withdrew. He explained via his Twitter account (@ahadwingolf) that he had suffered a wrist injury on the course. He traveled to Phoenix, site of the next PGA Tour stop, the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and had it looked at by a doctor and was told it was “nothing major.” He participated in Monday qualifying for the tournament, but was unsuccessful.

Tiger Woods cruised to victory at the Farmers, finishing at -14 to win by four strokes for his 75th career PGA Tour triumph.

Hadwin has full status on the second-tier Tour this season. He came very close to earning his PGA Tour card in 2012, finishing one stroke shy of the top 25 on the Tour money list.
