Adam Hadwin finished Friday’s second round at the Shriner’s Children’s Open with a seven under 64.
At 11 under through the first two rounds, Hadwin is tied for sixth, three shots off the lead in Vegas
“I saw a few putts go in early, some for par, some for birdie, so it was nice to keep momentum going. I did what I needed to do today, kept hitting greens, giving myself chances, and like I said, a few of those longer ones rolled in today,” said Hadwin, who did face some rain.
“It was fine. We never got anything too heavy to really be too worried about. Obviously, we had the umbrella in and out a couple times, but I don’t think it was really enough to affect things,” he said.
“If anything, it just kind of made the golf course maybe a little bit more receptive and it was. There was just no breeze really to speak of either, so I thought a low one was out there,” he added.
Hadwin’s only bogey of the day came on the par four 12th and while that took him back to four under on the day, he eagled the par five 16th.
“I hit a perfect tee shot. We had about just under 230 pin, kind of in between clubs, not quite. It wasn’t quite a full 21, if I missed it at all, it was in the water, so we went one club up to my 2-hybrid,” he said.
“I knew that I could basically cut it as much as I wanted to and I was going to cover the water, so gave myself plenty of room on the left, played a nice big high cut and it worked out perfect,” said Hadwin, who also birdied 17.
Nick Taylor is tied for 17th at eight under after he finished the day with a round of 69.
