Golfweek's Dan Kilbridge with some of the fun comments from Adam Hadwin following his 59 at La Quinta Country Club. Hadwin takes a one stroke leading over Dominic Bozzelli into Sunday's Careerbuilder Challenge final round.
Hadwin's 13-birdie, no bogey round was played in a zone of sorts, but Hadwin knew what he was doing. His quote is fun:
“Everybody talks about kind of they were in a zone and I think that’s what happened out there,” Hadwin said. “I was thinking about it. I knew exactly where I was. I knew exactly what I needed to do. It just didn’t seem to matter.”
The 29-year-old Canadian knew he had a decent chance after a birdie on No. 11, which began a streak of five straight birdies on the back nine and followed a stretch of six straight on the front.
“After hole 11, I said to my caddie (Joe Cruz), ‘We need four more,” Hadwin said. “I’m not sure he knew what to respond to me at that point, because he knew I was playing well and he knew that clearly I was thinking about it. But we just went about our business and kept making putts.”
Kevin Casey with other notes from the day and another great quote from Hadwin about shaking over the final putt.
Mike Johnson with the clubs Hadwin used to shoot the 9th sub-60 score in PGA Tour history.
The final up and down for 59:
