Abbotsford’s Adam Hadwin made the biggest move of the day at the Shriners Hospitals for Children’s Open in Las Vegas on Sunday, firing a bogey-free round of 63 to move 43 spots up the board and finish in a tie for 10th and earn a cheque for $137,433 and 64 Fed Ex Cup points.   
 
After opening up with 3 tap-in pars on his first three holes, Hadwin went on a tear on the front nine, carding birdies on 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9.
 
He continued his assault on the TPC Summerlin course with birdies on 11 and 13 to get to (-12) for the tournament.

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.

The SLDR name has been synonymous with TaylorMade's "Loft Up" message since the launch of the SLDR driver in August, 2013. Excuse the acronym. The SLDR, pronounced SLIDER, is actually the name given to this driver period. It refers to the slider track on the bottom of the TaylorMade SLDR Driver, which allows the weight to be repositioned to encourage a fade or a draw. Following the success of the original, the SLDR S is the latest in this series of clubs -- promising "distance for all". The S is for the club's new look – a silver matte crown paired with black accents.

Both the American and Canadian flags flew high at Pinehurst #2 on Sunday.
 
American prodigy Michelle Wie finally won her first Major, fulfilling the promise she showed more than a decade ago when she burst on the golf scene and looked set to rule the world of women’s golf.
 
But after injuries and growing pains set her back – and would see Wie win only 3 LPGA tournaments since she turned pro 9 years ago – Wie took control of this U.S. Open on Friday and doggedly hung on until there were no competitors left to vanquish.

Forgive me, but this script seems awfully familiar.
 
An unheralded South Korean golfer with the last name of Yang comes out of nowhere to vanquish an American golf hero whose last name starts with W in a blistering hot course in the middle of the United States.
 
But unlike 2009, when YE Yang conquered Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship at Hazeltine, it’s 24-year-old Amy Yang who threatens to upset Michelle Wie’s apple cart.
 
Amy Yang hasn’t won anything yet, but getting herself into the final group with Wie has eerie reminders of five years ago during a steamy week in Minnesota.
