His second place finish at the CareerBuilder Challenge on Sunday in La Quinta, Calif., not only earned Adam Hadwin a career best on the PGA Tour, but it also launched him from 48th to 10th in FedEx Cup standings.
Rookie Mackenzie Hughes, who won the RSM Classic in November, stands fifth and leads all Canadians in that category. Hughes didn’t play the CareerBuilder Challenge.
Hadwin earned $626,400 for the runner-up spot, taking him from 54th to 12th on the PGA Tour money list with $922,050. Hughes is also fifth on that list $1,354,838.
Justin Shin shot an even par 72 and is tied for 24th after the first round was suspended due to darkness at the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic.
