Eight birdies.
 
That’s what Merritt’s Roger Sloan produced at Bear Mountain on Wednesday during an informal round of golf at the course which inked a sponsorship deal with Sloan earlier this autumn.
 
The affable PGA TOUR rookie, just back from cashing a $13,603 cheque in Mexico on the weekend, paid Bear Mountain a visit and was subjected to a round of golf with myself and fellow golf journalists Bob Weeks and Ian Hutchinson.
 
The 27-year-old hit towering drives, laser approaches and barely needed to putt his tap-in birdies, but still found the time to give us ‘the stick’ when we – and I mean me - poked the bear.

Links Golf - Better Than Chocolate...

Over the course of the last few years a dedicated and very talented group of women have represented Canada in a way we can all be proud of both with their excellent play and the manner in which they have carried themselves while wearing the Maple Leaf abroad. A fairly regular member of this most worthy contingent has also taken the time to share some of their experiences as they competed in the Irish and British Senior Women's Championships. They may have taken in the odd historic site as well as partaken of a pint or two along the way -  they are, after all, Canadian. - ed.

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.
