Having to write down a snowman “8” on your scorecard is never a good thing and for Abbotsford natives Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor, that’s what doomed their third rounds at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at the TPC Summerlin in Sin City.
Taylor started the day in a tie for 16th, within striking distance of the lead, but when he made a quadruple bogey 8 on the third hole, he could only hold on and salvage a (+2) round of 73 that has him now 13 strokes behind leader Ben Martin, who shot a (-9) round of 62 to rocket into the lead.
