Adam Hadwin was having a solid morning at Royal Portrush, 2 under through his first seven holes in Northern Ireland. Still, Hadwin was 1 over for the tournament, but had momentum on his side.
It got a lot better in a hurry at the par-4 eighth hole.
Hadwin placed his drive in the short grass and found himself with a green-light opportunity to attack the pin.
The eagle moved Hadwin to 4 under on the day and into red numbers at 1 under for the week. With a par at the ninth, Hadwin made the turn in 32 and finds himself comfortably inside the projected cut line.
