Adam Hadwin will resume his first full season on the PGA Tour out of his comfort zone.The native of Moose Jaw, Sask., now living in Abbotsford, B.C., tees it up Thursday at the Sony Open in Hawaii, the Tours first full-field event of 2015 that comes following nearly a two-month break. Hadwin will be one of five Canadians in the field — joining David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., Nick Taylor, a Winnipeg native now living in Abbotsford, Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., and Calgary native Roger Sloan — as American Jimmy Walker defends his title.But Hadwin will have to get used to more than just the five-hour time difference in Hawaii.It feels weird to start my season this quickly, Hadwin said during a conference call Wednesday. Normally Ive got another month before I start.I went home for Christmas for a week, then straight back down to Phoenix and right back into it. Ive been working hard in Phoenix since Dec. 28th. The reason I worked so hard was a pretty good reason, to play on the PGA Tour.Hadwin will play the full 2014-15 season after topping the Web.com Tour money list last year. The 27-year-old opened the campaign on a solid note, making the cut in four of the five events he entered, finishing tied for 10th at the $6.2-million US Shriners Hospital for Children Open in Las Vegas in October.But Hadwin didnt kick back and enjoy himself over the break. With longtime coach Brett Saunders heading to Australia to visit family, Hadwin said he had to get in as much work with Saunders as possible before his departure. After spending Christmas with family, Hadwin went to Phoenix and resumed preparing for the resumption of the Tour schedule.Still, after a hectic 14 campaign, Hadwin said the time off — while limited — was certainly welcomed.I was definitely drained, I was ready for a break, he said. There wasnt a whole lot of time to enjoy the 2014 year and what went on.By the end of Mexico (the OHL Classic at Playa del Carmen, which ended Nov. 16), I was ready to put some distance between me and my clubs for a while.Hadwin resumes play at No. 100 in the Tour rankings and 682 points behind FedEx Cup leader Robert Streb.I think I got off to an OK start, Hadwin said. I really struggled with my game the first part but the one thing I learned was when I didnt feel my best I was able to kind of hang in there, make the cut and get to the weekend and once you do that you never know what could happen.You might find lightning in a bottle and jump into a top-10 like I did in Vegas. I was really proud that in the first five events I was able to do that.Hadwin, who had two wins on the Web.com Tour, was recently named as Canadas top male golfer for 2014. But Hadwin hasnt set personal goals over the remainder of the PGA Tour.Instead, his focus will be on matters he can control.Im not a huge goal-setter, especially not sort of outcome goals — things like I want to keep my card or I want to be in the top-50, he said. Those are very dependant on how others play.This year Im just more focused on making sure I am as prepared as I can be for each event. I want to be a little bit better with my time management so that Im doing everything each week that I need to do in order to be prepared for that event, scheduling enough time to get into the gym to stretch out and loosen my body and do all those things. If I can take care of the things I can control and prepare on and off the golf course then Im going to set myself up to be successful. From there its anybodys guess on how far I can take this.And although Hadwin is living out his dream of playing on the PGA Tour, he says his life hasnt changed.Im still doing the same things, Im still friends with the same people, still hanging out and enjoying my life, he said. Obviously things on the course have changed a little bit, were playing bigger events, more people are watching.But life off the course hasnt changed.

At last years U.S. Open, she became the first British woman since 1991 to reach the fourth round there. Thanks to a 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 comeback victory Saturday over Marina Erakovic of New Zealand, a match that included a crucial overturned call, Robson is now the first British woman since 1998 to make it that far at Wimbledon. And shes also assured of becoming the first British woman since 1987 -- more than a quarter-century ago -- to climb into the top 30 in the WTA rankings. Robson, a lefty with a fairly big serve who beat Kim Clijsters in the final match of the four-time major champions career, is nonplussed by it all. "I didnt even know about it until you (told) me," Robson said when asked about the significance of some of her milestones. "I just focus on, you know, playing my match, things like that. Things that actually matter." And she noted: "I dont go into the match thinking, If I win this, Im going to be top-30." Needless to say, the attention paid to her by the locals is increasing: Photos of Robson were all over the front pages of Saturdays newspapers, and she was thrilled with the vocal support she heard on Court 2 against Erakovic. The spectators got so loud that their roars could be heard across the grounds at Centre Court. "I dont think they had much to support in the first set," Robson joked, "but they were amazing. I thought they helped a lot." That sort of focus and backing only will increase in a place desperate for tennis success; the last British woman to win Wimbledon was Virginia Wade in 1977. Thats nothing, of course, compared to the wait since 1936 for a male champion at the All England Club, but its enough to get everyone around here rather excited about Robson. "Its good to do well, especially at Wimbledon," said Robson, currently ranked 38th. "But Im going to be playing for, like, another 10 years, so its all bonuses for now." Playing for a second day in a row, Robson did not start well. Not at all. "I was getting my butt kicked, basically," Robson said. "I was really struggling to return her serrve.dddddddddddd She was playing really well. So I just thought: Just going to try as best as I can, work as hard as possible and just stick with it until she starts to get nervous -- which is what happened." Indeed, the 71st-ranked Erakovic, who was trying to become the first woman from New Zealand to get to Wimbledons fourth round since 1959, was up a set and a break and served for the match at 5-4 in the second. But she set up a break point with one of her eight double-faults, and Robson pulled even at 5-all. "I think anyone would be tightening up serving for the match in that situation. And (I) knew that she hadnt made the fourth round of a Slam. That was what I was told," said Robson, who eliminated 10th-seeded Maria Kirilenko in her opening match. "So I kind of just tried to put the pressure on her serve, and she made a couple of double-faults, which helped me. But I knew that that was my chance to get in her head a little bit, and thats what I did." After holding to go up 6-5, Robson got a set point when Erakovic double-faulted to make it 30-40. Then came a key moment. Robson barely got a return back that looped high and just caught the edge of a line, but was called out before Erakovic finished hitting what would have been a winner. Robson successfully challenged the "out" ruling, the point was replayed, and Erakovic double-faulted yet again to cede the set. From there, Robson took complete control, building a 4-0 lead in the third set. After Wimbledons traditional day of rest on the middle Sunday, Robson moves on to Week 2 at Wimbledon. On Monday, she will face 46th-ranked Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, a four-time major quarterfinalist who beat 126th-ranked wild-card entry Alison Riske of the United States 6-2, 6-3. "Its now my second time in the second week of a Slam, so thats pretty cool. Except at the U.S. Open, I played on the Sunday, so it didnt quite feel like a second week," Robson said, "and my brother said it didnt count." Well, as far as all of a certain country is concerned, this one most certainly will count. And if Robson wins again, she will be the first British woman since Jo Durie in 1984 to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon -- or any Grand Slam tournament.
