For Hadwin, Masters berth trumps honeymoon

PALM HARBOR, Fla. – Adam Hadwin’s honeymoon plans are on hold after he broke through Sunday at the Valspar Championship.

Set to be married March 24, he has already said that he won’t play in the upcoming WGC-Match Play. It’s the second World Golf Championships event that he’s overlooked this month, after declining to play the Honda Classic despite sitting 12th in the FedEx Cup standings. He wanted two weeks off.

“There’s going to be plenty of WGCs to come,” he said.

One event will shake up his personal life, though.

Now that he’s qualified for the Masters, Hadwin and his fiancée, Jessica Kippenberger, will reschedule their honeymoon. They were supposed to depart for a 10-day trip to French Polynesia two days after the wedding.

Hadwin said that they booked refundable airline tickets – “In case I made it to the Masters. There’s always a chance, right?” – but were hoping to recover the hotel deposit at the Four Seasons.

“I understand I won a nice check this week,” he said, “but I don’t like to throw money away.”

So, given the change in plans, and the $1.2 million windfall, will the bride-to-be ask for a new honeymoon itinerary?

“Ohhh, yeah, that’s a good idea!” Jessica said on the 18th green. “I’ll have to think about that!”
