PALM HARBOR, Florida – Adam Hadwin started the back nine with five straight birdies and posted a 7-under 64 to build a one-shot lead going into the weekend of the Valspar Championship.It was another low round for Hadwin -- not a 59 like the score the Canadian shot in the California desert this year, but enough to surge past Jim Herman and into the lead on a warm and occasionally blustery Friday afternoon at Innisbrook.Herman had to settle for an even-par 71.Hadwin was at 10-under 132.[caption id="attachment_51510" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Adam Hadwin acknowledges the crowd moments after making a birdie at 17 while playing in the second round of the Valspar Golf Championship at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club's Copperhead Course on Friday, March 10, 2017, in Palm Harbor, Florida.

He was three shots behind and shared one highlight that had nothing to do with golf. His 2-year-old daughter, Alice, ran out to the second fairway when she saw him.
