Hadley makes Wyndham cut despite son’s hopes for the opposite

Chesson Hadley can confirm … kids still say the darndest things.

After carding a second-round 64 to jump into the mix at the Wyndham Championship, Hadley revealed that he’d be playing the weekend despite his son’s hopes for the opposite.

The 32-year-old tweeted that his son, Hughes, delivered the ultimate burn in response to Hadley laying down the law earlier this week, saying he hoped his dad missed the cut at the season-ending PGA Tour event.

My son was mad at me earlier this week for not letting him do something. In his anger, he told me that he hoped I’d miss the cut. I remembered that while I was playing. Don’t poke the bear. Playing the weekend. Let’s go! #StillLoveMySon

The angry retort from his kid was apparently all the motivation Hadley needed, tweeting that he thought about it on the course at Sedgefield Country Club.

The 2014 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year is still looking for his second career Tour win.

Hughes was so young that he fit in the trophy after his victory at the 2014 Puerto Rico Open.


If Hadley can keep up the strong play over the weekend, perhaps his son will play a cool starring role in dad’s second victory as well.
