The Outlook

Hadwin is coming off a missed cut at the Canadian Open and hasn’t sniffed the top 10 since early March. Further, he’s never been in the top 20 in a major in his career, and he missed the cut in his only PGA Championship appearance last year. He’s not very long off the tee, which is a problem at Bellerive. When guys like DJ are hitting gaps into long par 4s and 5s, your game has to be nearly perfect to keep up. Hadwin’s isn’t right now.
