Hadley latest Raleigh golfer with PGA ambitions

Posted June 18, 2013

Had a chance to meet Chesson Hadley today. Remember that name.

Hadley is a 25-year-old golfer from Raleigh who is competing on the Tour and doing quite well.

As you may know, the tour is at TPC Wakefield this week for the Rex Open.

I stopped by Chessonโ€™s home to meet him and his wife. What a delightful couple. They met in high school and cultivated their relationship at Northridge Country Club. Both families were members.

Chesson talked about the tour, told me how he's living a life-long dream โ€“ to make it on the PGA Tour.

If you havenโ€™t already, check out his blog at  It will give you some insight into this rising star, who is No. 9 on the money list.

    Nice job about Hadley. I've never heard of him. Loads of golfers have this dream and I wish him well. I see many right here in Southern Pines, Pinehurst, Laurinburg, Fayetteville, and all around that have been playing for years on various tours. It's maybe the hardest Sport of all in breaking into the Professional ranks.
