Hadwin’s Stellar Performance at the Memorial Tournament

After expressing hope to challenge the best player in the world, Scottie Scheffler, at the Memorial Tournament, Canadian golfer Adam Hadwin delivered an impressive performance on Sunday. Despite Scheffler’s dominance, winning for the fifth time this year, Hadwin secured a remarkable third-place finish, his best of the season on the PGA Tour. This achievement also granted him a coveted spot at The Open Championship, marking his return to the prestigious event.

Furthermore, Hadwin’s strong showing at the Memorial has positioned him to potentially overtake Corey Conners for a spot on Canada’s Olympic golf team. With Nick Taylor likely securing the first qualifying spot, Hadwin’s rise to 35th in the world rankings after the tournament puts him in a favorable position. However, the competition remains fierce, with Taylor Pendrith and Mackenzie Hughes also vying for Olympic berths.

Reflecting on his performance at Muirfield Village, where the tournament took place, Hadwin expressed pride in his ability to contend with the world’s best on a challenging course. Despite some late struggles, he remains optimistic about his upcoming opportunities, including the U.S. Open.

Looking ahead to Pinehurst, where he will be one of seven Canadians in the field, Hadwin sees the tournament as valuable preparation, anticipating another stern test from the USGA. Alongside his longtime friend Nick Taylor, Hadwin hopes to secure an Olympic spot, showcasing the depth of Canadian talent on the PGA Tour.
