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).

In fact, with the South African Open happening the same week as the Presidents Cup, he’s not sure which he’ll play and he’s pissed, according to the AP.
