Raleigh's Hadley targeted in Fallon segment

— Not even the calm and quiet demeanor of Raleigh golfer Chesson Hadley can hide from the ridicule of late night television.

During a segment on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Monday, Fallon took aim at several PGA Tour players in his “Superlatives” segment where he commented on the players’ appearances.

The 6-foot-4, 160-pound Hadley is admittedly tall and lanky – Fallon noticed. His superlative for Hadley: “Most likely to see one of those giant wind sock guys and say, ‘…Dad?’”

Hadley had fun with the segment, feeling comfortable enough to post it on his blog, HadsCorner.com.

Fallon's head writer, A.D. Miles is also a Raleigh native and attended NC State.

World’s top golfer Rory McIlroy was voted “Most likely to be in a golf boy band called ‘Hole-In-One Direction,’” while Rickie Fowler was dubbed, “Metrosexual Ernie.” Tiger Woods was voted, “Most likely to lose to Jimmy Fallon at his own video game,” referring to a segment the two had in Times Square during a Wii competition.

Other golfers that caught Fallon’s attention included Angel Cabrera, Miguel Jiminez, Victor Dubuisson, Brendon de Jonge, Chris Kirk, Kevin Stadler and Jason Kokrak.

Hadley, who is currently ranked 91 in the world and sits 70th in the FedEx Cup standings, will return to the course this weekend as the PGA Tour plays in Greensboro for the Wyndham Championships.
