WATCH: Chesson Hadley gets very emotional after earning PGA Tour card

Chesson Hadley was one of the hot young players coming onto the PGA Tour in 2014. He didn’t disappoint either, winning his first tournament on tour that year, netting him the Rookie of the Year award.

Since then, Hadley has quietly fallen off the map, but some great play on the always competitive Web.com Tour led him to get his third win on the tour defeating former University of Texas star, Beau Hossler. Now, after his victory, he has regained him PGA Tour status, earning his card once again.



The emotion clearly got to Hadley, as he cried into his hat. Moments like this makes you want to give a round of applause.

You worked so hard to make it the PGA Tour the first time, and played well. But then, some struggles led you back to the Web.com Tour, one of the most ferocious tours in all of golf with its rich depth of hungry young golfers.

After his win at the LECOM Health Challenge, Hadley can safely press the refresh button on his career. With a tour card back into his inventory, this gives him opportunities to potentially capture a major championship.

His best finish was a tie for 61st at the 2015 PGA Championship. His only other major appearance was at the 2014 Open Championship where he missed the cut.

With him being on the PGA Tour again, he’ll not only have a chance to redeem himself at those majors, but can also try his hand at the Masters and U.S. Open.

For now, there’s no doubt that Hadley is feeling a sigh of relief.

Rust-Oleum Championship: Interviews with the players

A few weeks back, I had the chance to go cover the Rust-Oleum Championship, a tournament on the Web.com Tour that takes place at Ivanhoe CC in Ivanhoe, IL. During the tournament, I had the chance to walk around and explore a bit of the beautiful course as well as inside of the clean and polished clubhouse.

I also had the chance to interview six of the players on the Tour, two of them were within the Top 25 and another was ranked 31st at the time. Anders Alberton, Bhavik Patel and Jonathan Randolph were these golfers.

Also had the chance to chat with Greg Eason, Andrew Yun and Denny McCarthy.

Here is the playlist of the interviews. Feel free to take a listen.

It was a fun tournament and I hope to get back again next year.
