Adam Hadwin
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Hadwin has four seasons on the PGA Tour under his belt and he's batting about .500. He's had two decent seasons and two above-average seasons. His two most recent seasons have been his best and there's reason to think he'll continue to improve. Hadwin picked-up his first and only win on the PGA Tour during the 2016-2017 season and it helped him surpass the $3 million mark. That price tag made him nearly impossible to select in a salary cap format, but with the drop in production last season, he's back in the range where it's feasible to take him. His ceiling has been established around $3 million, but he's only been there once, which makes it a risky play to take him at this price. He'll likely finish somewhere between where he finished last season and the season prior, which if that's the case, he won't be worth the price in salary cap leagues. Read Past Outlooks
Misses cut in season opener
October 9, 2018
Hadwin missed the cut by five strokes at last week's Safeway Open after posting a two-day total of two-over-par.
Hadwin carded three doubles or worse en route to a first-round 77 before bouncing back with four birdies during his second round, ultimately missing the cut against an extremely weak field. The Canadian had racked up three consecutive finishes of T21 or better prior to the recent MC, so he'll look to return to form in his next start.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Hadwin had a great start to the 2016-2017 season, and although he faded during the second half of the season, his play was strong enough early-on to carry him into the top-30 at seasons end. Hadwin played well during his first two seasons on the PGA Tour, earning his card during each season. This past season really came out of nowhere, however. Hadwin had zero top-3s in his first two seasons on the PGA Tour, but he posted a win and a runner-up last season, which was the main reason for the huge jump in earnings. Hadwin appears to have the skills to maintain or even increase his level of performance, but buying into his salary at this price point is putting a lot of faith in him.
Hadwin's first two seasons on the PGA Tour have been fairly nondescript. He's essentially grinding his way to a card each season and there's nothing wrong with that, but the upside is a bit limited until he can show the ability to finish well. He has five top-10s in two years, and nothing in the top-3, so it's probably wise to hold-off on Hadwin in salary cap formats this season. In draft leagues he'll go very late.
Hadwin has a chance to be an absolute star. He lit it up in the Tour Finals, going missed cut (MC)-1-T10-T7 over the four events. The win, his second of the year, came at the Chiquita Classic, and aided by his victory earlier in the season Chile Classic and eight other top-10s, Hadwin was able to supplant Ortiz at the Tour Championship for the leading Tour Regular Season + Finals Money List earner, which gets him fully exempt, into the 2015 Players, and off of the Reshuffle List. With fellow Canadian and rising PGA Tour star Graham DeLaet as a resource to help ease his entry into the PGA Tour, look for his rookie season to be one that could include a victory, and possibly a fall win at that. With the PGA Tour season starting October 9 at the Open, Hadwin could be a player who carries that momentum into an early season run on the biggest stage in golf.
Hadwin has the distinction of making the cut in every PGA Tour event he's played. That's six in all for those of you counting at home. OK, so it's a small sample size, but it's still impressive. Here's the problem, though. He didn't quite make enough to earn his card in the same fashion that Bud Cauley did and his trip to Q-School did not work out so well, so he's stuck without a card entering the 2012 season. He'll get a few exemptions this year, but probably not enough to make him a viable player on your roster this season.
