Canadian upstart Adam Hadwin, aka Vinny Chase, doesn't have an entourage...yet.

On Wednesday evening I chatted with Canadian Tour player Adam Hadwin, who is trying to earn his PGA Tour card and playing in this week’s McGladrey Classic in Sea Island, Georgia.

Just for some background — Hadwin is in a unique position to potentially bypass PGA Tour Q-School (similar to Bud Cauley’s situation, but Hadwin has had fewer starts so he has a little more work cut out for him). The 23-year-old Canadian has made four cuts in four starts on Tour in 2011, including two top 10s — T4 at the RBC Canadian Open and T7 at last week’s Frys.com Open, which gained him a spot in the McGladrey (by finishing in the top ten, a player automatically gets a spot in the next event).

I was trawling the practice areas, like I usually do on Mondays when I’m at a tournament, just trying to get the lay of the land (which is huge, by the way). While I was trying to take pictures with my new non-crappy real camera, I noticed a theme — I couldn’t get clear shots even inside the ropes because almost every player was surrounded by a group of dudes.

Like in the picture above, somewhere behind that mob is 18-year-old Ryo Ishikawa, who was patiently sitting in a chair while reporters, handlers, equipment reps, coaches, family, friends and pets hovered. You get the point. Okay, so Ryo’s case was (obviously) a tad more intense than the others, but still, just see for yourselves…
