Prior to the Valspar Championship Adam Hadwin was presented with a gold-plated replica of his Odyssey Tank Cruiser V-Line putter that he used to shoot 59 with at the CareerBuilder Challenge. Cool as that might be to receive, Hadwin’s actual V-Line turned out to be his money club at Innisbrook Resort and Spa’s Copperhead course.
Hadwin used the putter – a club he has used since 2014 – to great effect all week, holing more than 400 feet of putts over 72 holes (an average of close to six feet per hole). None proved more important than the 53-foot bomb he dropped for birdie on the par-3 13th hole, the unexpected stroke providing enough of a cushion to survive a double-bogey three holes later.
For the week Hadwin was an impressive 1.720 in strokes gained/putting.
