Adam Hadwin robbed of a hole-in-one at Arnold Palmer Invitational


Adam Hadwin picked up his first PGA Tour win last week at the Valspar Championship, and he was in contention again on Sunday at Bay Hill to pick up his second win in as many weeks.

Hadwin came to the par-3 17th, two holes removed from a nasty double bogey that cost him a chance at winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational. However, that didn’t stock the Canadian from taking dead aim on his tee shot from 215 yards. Hadwin hit a perfect shot, which rolled up to the hole, struck the flagstick head on and somehow didn’t drop for a hole-in-one.

Hadwin wound up making birdie on the 17th hole and finished alone in sixth place, a shot out of a tie for fourth with Rory McIlroy and Tyrrell Hatton, three shots behind winner Marc Leishman.

Yeah, Hadwin didn’t get the ace, but it’s been a really good year so far: a 59, a first win, making big bucks on Tour. And the year is about to get better for Hadwin, who will get married on Friday and then prepare for his first Masters appearance.
