Adam Hadwin continued his great play this season by notching his second victory of the year on the Web. Richie Incognito Jersey .Com Tour with a two-shot win at the Chiquita Classic, one of four events on the circuits season-ending Finals. The victory earned the B.C. golfer $180,000 (U.S.) pushing his season winnings to just shy of $500,000. “It was just an awesome week,” Hadwin said moments after hoisting the trophy. “I just felt in control all week. I stayed aggressive and made some putts.” Hadwin, 26, has already locked up a spot on next years PGA Tour by virtue of finishing fourth on the tours regular season money list, but there is still more to play for. The win pushed him to second on the money list and one out of the coveted No. 1 spot of the projected priority standings for the Finals – the combination of money from the regular season and the four-tournament Finals. If he were to finish there, hed earn a full exemption on the PGA Tour next year – meaning hed avoid any reshuffles – as well as a spot in the field at The Players. “At the start of the Finals, it certainly wasnt something I was thinking about,” said Hadwin of the possibility of finishing first. “But this puts me in good position now. “Still, Im going to go into next week and try not to focus on that. Im going to do the same thing I did this week and just give myself some chances for birdies.” Hadwin came into the Finals without too much pressure, knowing he was going to the PGA Tour next season regardless of how he played. That freed him up to play some relaxed golf. “I had a good priority ranking already,” he said. “I was really just out there enjoying myself. And you wonder what comes first? Do you play well because youre having fun or are you having fun because youre playing well?” Hadwin had just five bogeys over the four rounds and equaled his best score on the Web.Com tour with a 63 on Thursday. That round included a personal-best six consecutive birdies. “That was just an unbelievable start,” Hadwin reflected. “I made everything I looked at, just went crazy.” On Sunday, Hadwin birdied the first two holes, added another at the sixth before a bogey on the eighth. Back-nine birdies on 11 and 16 pushed him to 18 under par and he finished the day with two pars to earn the victory. He admitted that there were some nerves on the day as he battled for his second victory. But he was happy to keep them in check as he came to the final holes. “I knew the nerves were coming,” he stated. “Its just part of it but I really felt comfortable out there and in control. I was really proud of how I handled the nerves. I never hit a nervous shot.” Its been a sensational year for Hadwin, who is finishing his third full season on the Web.Com Tour. He jumped out of the gate and has never been out of the top 10 on the money list. He had no idea of how he was planning to celebrate the latest victory. He was headed to Louisville for a team fund raiser for his alma matter on Monday and then off to Columbus for the third leg of the Finals. LeSean McCoy Jersey .

Lions were stumbling along winless and looking like a team with no chance at playing in a championship Grey Cup game that they are set to host. That feels like a long time ago now after quarterback Kevin Glenn had 301 yards and two touchdowns Saturday, as the Lions rolled over the Montreal Alouettes 41-5 for their second straight victory. Glenn was impressive, going 23-for-31 before leaving late in the third with a minor muscle strain that he says isnt serious. As for those critics coming after Glenn and his Lions after Week 2 -- when they lost 24-9 to the Als in Montreal -- the quarterback says everything is right on track. "Its a marathon, and you want to gradually get better every week," he said. "Last week we werent perfect and naturally this week we werent perfect, but we made plays when they were called upon. "We want to make sure were growing as a team till the end of the year when youre playing your best football." Wide receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux caught three touchdown passes, including both of Glenns, as the Lions moved to 2-2 after last weeks impressive 26-13 win in Regina. The Als (1-3), meanwhile, have just one win on the season -- against B.C. -- and it was a tough outing for Montreal quarterback Troy Smith, who finished with a scant 45 yards passing before being replaced in the fourth. "Its not what we are, but it was what we were tonight," said a downcast Als head coach Tom Higgins. "Credit the B.C. Lions, they did almost everything that they needed to do. We did not execute." The West Coast has rarely been kind to the Alouettes as theyve now been outscored 163-30 in their last four games in Vancouver. Their last win in B.C. was way back in 2010, when the Lions played in Empire Field for one season. But as easy as it is to point to Montreals damning history in Vancouver some of the credit must go to an improving quarterback in Glenn. The 35-year-old veteran, brought in in the off-season to back up injured started Travis Lulay, has been steadily improving as of late and feeling more comfortable with the Lions offense. "Thats what happens when youre a new guy on a new team -- it takes a little time to get comfortable and get going," said Glenn. "And everybody wants it to happen faster, but sometimes its just what happens. It takes a couple games to get in the groove and the game plan running your way." Glenn surpassed a milestone on the first play of the game. He ducked a hard tackle before throwing a 16-yard bullet down the middle to slotback Courtney Taylor that put him over 40,000 career yards. Glenn then found Andrew Harris, who carried it for a gain of 33 yards to put B.C. at the 23 and a ffirst down. Nathan Peterman Jersey. Two incompletes later and Paul McCallum kicked a 30-yard FG for the games first score. Glenn was efficient on the Lions next possession, getting his team to the 36 before heaving a 35-yard TD strike to wide receiver Arceneaux for an early 10-0 advantage. That drive took only five plays and 62 yards. The Als got on the board soon after as Brandon Whitaker took Montreal 41 yards on two rushes before a B.C. roughing the passer call put the Alouettes at the 35. After Troy Smiths pass was nearly picked off, Sean Whyte kicked in a 42-yarder to make it 10-3 at 4:31 of the first. McCallum kicked B.C. to a 13-3 lead at 3:48 of the second thanks to a drive by Glenn. He slung a 25-yard pass to slotback Shawn Gore before finding both Stefan Logan and Taylor to put B.C. inside the red zone. Glenn couldnt finish the drive, so McCallum kicked it in from 16 yards out. It got worse for Montreal minutes later when a blocked punt by Khreem Smith was recovered by defensive tackle Eric Taylor, who huffed it 19 yards to put the Lions back in scoring position. Courtney Taylors 7-yard TD was called back to the one, but backup QB Travis Partridge punched it in - his first pro TD - and the Lions had a 20-3 lead at the half. B.C. went right back to work in the third as a scampering Glenn found Arceneaux for a 35-yard gain and then again down the middle to put the Lions back in the redzone. From deep in the pocket it was once again Glenn connecting with Arceneaux as B.C. took control with a 27-3 lead at seven minutes. Smiths nightmare game continued on the next possession when rookie DE Alex Bazzie sacked him for a quick three and out. "Some of the challenges that people just dont know is theres times when its just not the quarterbacks fault," said Higgins. "(Smith) is standing there and someones not running where theyre supposed to. We need to examine all of those things." Lions backup John Beck came in for the third and picked up where Glenn left off, hitting Arceneaux with a 27-yard touchdown pass to make it 34-3 and put the game out of reach. That was Arceneauxs third major of the game. "Mannys an elite player," said Lions head coach Mike Benevides. "Hes a big time player. As hard as he works and as gifted as he is, Im not surprised at all (hes playing well). Im so grateful thats he on our team." Notes: The Lions honoured the 1994 Grey Cup Champion team at halftime ...
