Global Golf Post: Hadwin's U.S. Open Hopes

This week’s Global Golf Post column focused on Adam Hadwin, who tips it up today in the U.S. Open.

Does Hadwin have a chance? Probably not. He’s not played well this year, which isn’t a good sign. That said, he’s one of those rare players who seems to be able to pick himself up for big tournaments, which is quite impressive. Stephen Ames once told me he just couldn’t do that — and was envious of the players who could somehow elevate their games on the grandest stages.

The U.S. Open is a long way from the Canadian Open, where Hadwin last contended two years ago, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he made the cut, along with David Hearn and Mike Weir. I suspect Ryan Yip and Mackenzie Hughes might struggle with this one.
