Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., is just one shot off the lead held by Bo Van Pelt at the RBC Canadian Open at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver.
Hadwin, who won the Rivermead Trophy as low Canadian at last year’s Open, combined five birdies with three bogeys to record a two-under par 68, which leaves him at four-under. If he should go on to win, Hadwin could become the first Canadian to win the Open since Pat Fletcher in 1954.
“The whole objective today with the caddie was to put myself in a position to win tomorrow. It’s been a very simple process this whole week and that’s just picking a target, picking a yardage and committing to itand that’s it,” said Hadwin.
“This golf course is so difficult once you get off line that you just can’t play from the trees and from the rough. That was our focus going into today. Obviously, getting off to a start like I did, birdieing the first, the third, and the fourth made it very easy,” he added.
