Finding time to date while you’re grinding to keep your PGA Tour card is no easy feat. Fortunately, the digital age has made it infinitely easier to meet people with certain apps, with one of the most popular being location-based Tinder.
This past week, Canadian Adam Hadwin, who shot 59 earlier this year at the Career Builder Challenge and won the Valspar Championship, went on the record explaining how he and his wife met. Sure enough, they both swiped right.
Adam Hadwin found success with the app, in which you swipe left or right depending on whether you take interest in another user: a left for no, a right for yes. If the person you swiped right for also swipes right, you’re matched. Lucky for Hadwin, his wife Jess also swiped right one week in Kansas.

“Jess and I have always said that we met in Wichita when I was playing an event, and we kind of just left it at that,” Hadwin told GOLF Live’s Ryan Asselta. “Then we had to bring up how, and of course you bring it up now but, it is the truth. We were Tinder-matched in Wichita there, and we went out once when I was there that week, had dinner.”
The rest is history for the couple; Hadwin and his wife married March 24th, just after his win at the Valspar Championship guaranteed him a spot in the field at the 2017 Masters. That’s the week the couple were supposed to be honeymooning, but Jess understandingly obliged a change of plans.
“You know, it’s funny. It’s been almost three years now since we met, and I don’t think we’ve gone a day without talking,” Hadwin said.
Unfortunately, Hadwin missed the cut in his nation’s Open this week at Glen Abby. However, the good news is he and his wife are currently living happily ever after.
