Adam Hadwin could be forgiven if he did a little rain dance after Sunday’s final round was washed out at the Web.com Tour’s season-opener in Colombia.
That bad weather was worth about $16,000 to Hadwin, who was moving the wrong way on the leaderboard when play was halted and the tourney declared a 54-hole event.
After finishing a five-under 66 in his third round Sunday morning, Hadwin went back out onto Bogota Country Club and began his fourth round. The Abbotsford resident started making bogeys and had slipped all the way from a tie for eighth place into the mid-30s when play was suspended.
He earned $19,500 for his tie for eighth and would have likely made less than $3,000 had the fourth round been completed.
Hadwin need not make any apologies. He has been on the other end of weather-related suspensions when he has had birdies, not bogeys, washed away.
The cancellation of Sunday’s final round likely cost fellow Abbotsford resident Nick Taylor some money. He was one-under for his fourth round when play was called. Taylor ended up finishing tied for 41st and made $2,775 in his debut as a Web.com Tour regular.
The tour resumes its swing through South and Central America March 6-9 in Santiago, Chile.
