Hadwin during a better week of golf.

I wrote about the struggles of Canadian PGA Tour pros in Global Golf Post this week, where there’s barely one Canadian in the Top 100 (Graham DeLaet, who has fallen to 92), and only two others in the Top 200 (David Hearn, who is again having a solid, if unspectacular year and Adam Hadwin, who has been inconsistent).

Golf at the professional level is a ridiculously difficult sport. DeLaet has been hurt for much of the year, and Hadwin is a tour rookie seeing courses for the first time. Their results aren’t altogether surprising.

At the same time there’s suddenly a group of terrific young players emerging at PGA Tour Canada Mackenzie Tour—just look at the finishes by Taylor Pendrith and Adam Svensson on the Tour this weekend. Of course there’s no certainty any of those players, including Albin Choi, Mackenzie Hughes, Corey Conners, and the like will make it, but there’s an impressive crop of players trying.

The full story is here.
