Adam Hadwin was tackled by security as he tried to celebrate Nick Taylor’s historic win at the RBC Canadian Open

Adam Hadwin was tackled by security as he tried to celebrate Nick Taylor’s historic win at the RBC Canadian Open

Adam Hadwin was trying to party with his friend and fellow Canadian, and after the country’s drought at the Canadian Open, it’s easy to understand why. But at least one security officer on the putting green at Oakdale Golf and Country Club in Toronto didn’t have it.

Hadwin, shortly after Nick Taylor beat Tommy Fleetwood in a four-hole playoff at the RBC Canadian Open, a security officer leveled the floor with a bottle of champagne in hand.

To be fair to the security guard – who did an amazing tackle – it’s hard to blame him. All he probably saw was a guy running towards the golfer who won the tournament, and it’s his job to stop that.

Watching the final holes with fellow Canadians Mike Weir and Corey Conners, Hadwin was there trying to celebrate Taylor’s historic win; The last time a Canadian won this championship was in 1954.

“The corner of my eye I saw he got a nice tackle there,” Taylor said after his win. “I hope he’s okay. He was straight when I saw him later. So I hope he doesn’t wake up tomorrow morning with broken ribs or anything.”

Fortunately, Hadwin is fine — and he seemed to be in a good mood about the whole thing.

Hadwin finished tied for 12th after a final round 68, which put him in 11th place under the week. He had the best score of any Canadian on the field, other than Taylor. Hadwin, 35, has only one career win on the Tour (at the 2017 Valspar Championships). Hadwin scored four top-ten finishes this season.
