FRIDAY APRIL 15, 7:30am
Today’s VGT Ledgeview Classic will continue to run, but as a 12:30pm “MODIFIED SHOTGUN” start:
- Golfers with an original start time before 12:30pm will tee-off in a 12:30 shotgun start on the first six holes.
- Any player with an original start time of 12:30pm or later will tee-off at their original start time off the first tee.
Thanks for your attention to this notice and we look forward to seeing you at Ledgeview at the registration in the Pro-shop.
Coming off the heels of back-to-back victories with rounds of 66, #1 Ranked CPGA Pro Bryn Parry will have his hands full at this Friday’s VGT Ledgeview event with two of Canada’s Top Pros in the field – Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor.
Both very familiar to Ledgeview from their Junior and Amateur days, #1 Ranked Canadian Tour Pro Adam Hadwin and former #1 World Amateur Nick Taylor will be looking to knock Parry off his pedestal at this tomorrow’s VGT event.
By far VGT’s most consistent Professional the last three years, Parry has been a force difficult to contend with for a majority of his competitors, hence his three consecutive VGT Order of Merit Titles, three consecutive PGA of BC Player of the Year honours, and recently being ranked #1 on the CPGA’s new Player Ranking System.
Parry will tee-it-up at 11:05 this Friday with Canada’s fastest rising Professional Adam Hadwin who last year chased his way up to #2 on the 2010 Canadian Tour Order of Merit thanks to two 2nd place finishes and his first win at the final Can Tour event in Palm Springs in November. Along with winning VGT’s Vancouver Open in September, Hadwin really found the spotlight when he finished in the top 25 at the Nationwide Tour’s Gretzky Classic and again when he finished t37 and took Low Canadian honours at the 2010 RBC Canadian Open on the PGA Tour. “All-around, 2010 was a pretty stress free year where everything kind of fell into place and I kept playing well from event-to-event” stated Hadwin over the phone. “This year has been a bit less consistent for me” he said.
So far, Hadwin has had a mixture of results this year. First he had two great finishes (13th and 8th) on the South African (Sunshine) Tour in late February. Then Hadwin was off to South America where he missed his first cut in 18 events out on tour. Then out of nowhere he missed a second cut in a row, which perturbed Hadwin quite a bit. Well, not SO much that he couldn’t get right back on his winning ways the following week, blistering the field by 6 shots in the Pacific Colombia Tour Championship, going 25-under par for the event and pocketing $23,400.
As much as he may not feel the progression is as smooth as in 2010, one thing for sure is that Hadwin has enough fire power to win at any time on any tour, period! But he’ll have his hands full with the run-and-gun format of the one-day VGT event tomorrow where any one of the top 25 golfers on this tour could take it deep and pocket the winner’s cheque.
Spectators are encouraged to witness what will no doubt be a showdown to remember at Ledgeview. With the amount of star power in this field, we may just witness one of these future PGA Tour stars firing a course record on the Abbotsford course noted for producing some of Canada’s top golfers as of late.
