Adam Hadwin capped off an impressive weekend with a top five finish at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.
The 29 year-old BC native finished his tournament at 7-under par which left him tied with Rory McIlroy, Paul Casey and Russell Knox in fifth which was well back of the eventual winner Hideki Matsuyama.
Hadwin came into the weekend in 14th spot on the FedEx Cup standings looking to get back into the top 10 as well as garner some recognition in an attempt to make the Presidents Cup International Team. His performance in Akron could do both.
Matsuyama finished 16-under par which was five shots better than second place finisher Zach Johnson.
The 25 year-old from Japan won his fifth PGA title after firing a course record 61 on Sunday.

In his post tournament press conference, Matsuymaya said he wasn’t really sure of his swing today which is scary to think of the possibilities when is feeling better about his game.
He now ties Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas with three wins each this year on the PGA tour.
