Hadwin grabs four-shot lead at Valspar

Adam Hadwin's third round at the Valspar Championship was not quite as dazzling as his second, but 29-year old from Canada came up clutch when he had to on Saturday.

Both parred the 17th and found the fairway with their drives on the par-4 18th, but Cantlay failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker and Hadwin made a short par putt to win.

Hadwin had a four-shot lead to start the day, but that evaporated. That is, of course, until a watery tee shot on No. 16 led to a costly double bogey and allowed Cantlay to draw even.

He shot par 71 in the final round for a total of 14-under 270, which gave him a one-shot victory over Patrick Cantlay (68).

At Least 40 Killed in Twin Bombings against Pilgrims in Damascus
These include the Islamic State jihadist group, which Iraq is battling at home, but which also holds significant ground in Syria. The cemetery is one of the capital's most ancient and is where several prominent religious figures are buried.

The combatants traded birdies at the long 11th as well as the par-three 13th, where Hadwin holed a monster 53-foot putt for a two before Cantlay followed him in after a pure iron to five feet. But Hadwin steadied his nerve, closed with a pair of pars and now has his first career win - and first Masters invite - two months after shooting a 59 at the CareerBuilder Challenge.

Remember that bad break at the 10th hole we told you about earlier for Adam Hadwin when he hit the flagstick with an approach shot?

Quote of the day: "I'm just lucky that 1-footer (on No. 18) wasn't 1 1/2 feet".
