SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – This week’s Monday finish at the Farmers Insurance Open afforded a strange situation for 16 players who were looking ahead to the next event.
Because of the late restart, players who made the cut but weren’t already in the Waste Management Phoenix Open field were not able to compete in the Monday qualifier.
Well, all except for one.
Adam Hadwin posted scores of 66-74-69, good for a share of ninth place through 54 holes, just seven shots behind leader Tiger Woods. Instead of claiming a big paycheck, though, Hadwin withdrew – a decision which seemed strange when he later competed in the Monday qualifier in Phoenix.
He explained to GolfChannel.com: “I felt something – call it a twinge or a pinch – in my wrist. Something small, but that got my attention. I iced it and had it looked at in the morning and after taping it, felt well enough to try and give the Monday a go.”
Hadwin failed to qualify in the three-spot qualifier, which yielded spots in the field for Alistair Presnell, John Hurley and Edward Loar.
