Hadwin gets Presidents Cup pick

4 0 0

TSN Senior Reporter


Adam Hadwin is heading back to the Presidents Cup and this time, he’d like to be on the winning side.

On Wednesday evening, the Abbottsford, B.C., product was named to the International team by captain Ernie Els as one of four picks, joining Jason Day, Sungjae Im and Joaquin Niemann.

“I wasn’t quite sure it was going to happen, to be honest,” said Hadwin. “There were a lot of players playing really well these last few weeks and I truly felt Ernie’s decision could have gone either way.”

It will be Hadwin’s second trip to the team competition, having posted an 0-2-1 record two years ago at Liberty National when the Internationals lost to the Americans.

In making the pick, Els praised Hadwin’s complete game, saying the Canadian had few weaknesses throughout the bag.

“I love his game,” Els said in a conference call announcing the pick. “He's just very solid all around. There's not really any weakness there.”

But clearly, the International captain is hoping Hadwin’s putter will shine when his side takes on the U.S. squad in Melbourne, Australia........
