Abbotsford’s Adam Hadwin will be playing at The Masters on Saturday.

Hadwin shot a two-over round of 74 to sit at five-over through two rounds. With four leaders finishing at four-under-par, those sitting at six-over and better will make the cut and guarantee themselves a payday at the world’s most prestigious golf tournament.

It’s the first time Hadwin has qualified to play at Augusta.

Hadwin – who shot three-over on his first day – started strong, with a birdie on the second hole. He was steady for most of the day, with major hiccups only at 10, which he bogeyed, and on 17, where he double-bogeyed.

His father Gerry spoke to Adam this afternoon after he got off the course.

“He’s fine,” Gerry said. “You always want to play a little bit better … but this is first Masters [and] he made the cut.”

Ledgeview Golf Course, where Adam was a long-time member and Gerry is currently director of golf, will be holding a viewing party Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Watch The News on Saturday for updates, and a story from the viewing party.
