Adam Hadwin shot a 6-under 65 on Friday to take a share of the lead in the 3M Open.

“I drove it really well today. Wasn’t in any trouble, hit a lot of good quality iron shots. Again, fat sides of the hole, I gave myself opportunities. My speed control’s been really good. It’s been as stress-free a 65 as you’re going to have.”

Hadwin came into the tournament following three consecutive missed cuts and a drop to 120th in the FedEx Cup standings, a difficult position with the playoffs in just a few short weeks.

“I think the biggest thing coming in this week, I’ve just been a little bit more committed to the process and less on the outcome,” said Hadwin. “Certainly playoffs, maintaining status, all that stuff has probably been creeping in a bit in the last little bit and I probably got away from some of the little details that make this game happen for us. So, I’ve gotten back to that these last three rounds and it’s worked out a lot better for me.”

Ryan Armour also shot a 65 to join him in the lead at 10-under 132, he and Hadwin managing to go low in spite of the wind picking up following the heat and humidity of the morning with temperatures reaching 100 degrees.

Armour came fifth at last week’s Barbasol Championship and started the week 135th in the FedEx Cup standings.

“I’m trying,” said Armour. “We’ll worry about the points later. I don’t feel like I’ve really had as bad a year as 135 sounds. I missed five or six cuts by a shot, so you’re always kind of around that cut line and I just fell on the wrong side of it a few times. That’s what kind of gnaws at you because you feel like, man, it’s not that bad, so maybe I should be higher, but you’ve got to go out and get it done and we’re just trying our hardest right now.”

Bo Hoag (66), Chez Reavie (67), Jhonatton Vegas (69) and Roger Sloan (69) are tied in third place at 9-under.

Vegas will take part in the Olympics for Venezuela next week and has had a tie for 11th or better in three of his last five starts.

“I feel I like I’m keeping the ball in play pretty well, giving myself enough chances, making a few putts, which is always good. The wind is blowing and it’s kind of that intensity that is a little bit annoying, especially some of those shots with so much water around this place, but played solid. I can’t really complain too much.”
