Golfer Adam Hadwin was tackled on the green while trying to celebrate fellow Canadian Nick Taylor’s win at the RBC Canadian Open, the first time a Canadian has won that event in nearly 70 years. Not long after the tackle, Jessica Hadwin, Adam’s wife, provided an update on her husband’s condition.
And given how bizarre the incident was, the update is fitting. Hadwin’s reaction to getting tackled was, in the words of his wife, “In true Canadian form.”
When the video of the tackle was posted online, Jessica Hadwin quote tweeted it with a “Get my lawyer on the phone” gif.

That was her last update on Twitter for a little more than an hour. Finally, she provided an update.
“Sorry to leave y’all hanging, had to get the toddler ready for bed,” Mrs. Hadwin tweeted. “I’m thrilled to report that @ahadwingolf is still among the land of the living and in true Canadian form, apologized to the security guard for being tackled.”

As was the case when the video of Hadwin getting tackled went viral, people found a lot of humor in the update.
There is a great Canadian commercial to be made with Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor and the first company to figure out the creative has a can't-miss winner. https://t.co/AA3fXlwusF

Meanwhile, Adam’s first tweet after the incident, much like the intended celebration, was all about honoring Taylor’s thrilling win.
Words cannot describe the magnitude of what you just accomplished. So proud of you @ntaylorgolf59!
