Canadian golfer Adam Hadwin racked up disappointments and frustrations last season, and his confidence was shattered.
“I felt like for some tournaments all I needed was a putt at a convenient time to build confidence or keep a momentum going, and I just couldn’t pull it off, or to strike an opportunistic iron blow, Hadwin said. I felt like I was going to put in a good performance, that I was among the leaders, that I was going to squeeze into the top 10 of a tournament. Then it all fell apart and I finished 50e. ”
The principal person admitted that he had found it difficult to turn the page on a poor performance, especially when they started to follow one another. And his mistakes were starting to affect him in the next tournament. One small mistake and he was immediately frustrated.
” It’s very difficult. It was very difficult to manage last year; I was just unable to get out of this mess, he said. I was starting a tournament off on the right foot and, you know, I was feeling good and suddenly everything was falling apart. Then, a little mistake or a bad putt happened in the first rounds, and I was back to square one.
“I hope my six weeks of rest have been good for my head, cleared my mind,” he added.
Hadwin therefore spent the last month and a half visiting his loved ones, a break “which passed in a gust of wind.” But he believes he pressed the “reset” button (reset).
“I didn’t finish the season the way I wanted. So it was good to take some time for myself and get away a bit, to recharge my batteries and start a new year in a more favorable position, ”said Hadwin.
He will begin his 2021 season Thursday at the American Express Championship in La Quinta, Calif.
Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, Roger Sloan of Merritt, BC, Michael Gligic of Burlington, Ont., And David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., Are the other Canadian golfers entering the competition this week.
