Jim Herman picked up his full status for the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season via the Tour Finals and he is taking advantage of another lap around the big circuit.
Herman played 21 events in 2013-14 but never scratched out a top-25 finish. He's remedied that in the early going in 2014-15, already securing two top 25s in his first five starts to rank 70th in the FedExCup standings. This is his fourth full season on the PGA TOUR, and he has never been able to retain a card without dropping back down to Q School or the Tour Finals. Sat, Dec 6, 2014 08:29:00 PM

Jim Herman authored a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to finish four swings back of the clubhouse lead.

Herman turned 37 years of age on Wednesday, but for most intents and purposes, he celebrated at the Country Club of Jackson today. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and totaled 16 greens in regulation en route to three birdies, two of which on par 5s. His best finish in 68 PGA TOUR starts occurred in this tournament in 2013. Over at Annandale, Herman shared ninth place one week after a T10 at the John Deere Classic, site of his only other career top 10.

Jim Herman earned a career-best 9-under-par 30-32=62 in his bogey-free third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and vaulted inside the top 10 at 11-under 202.

Not bad for a guy who made the cut on the number and began his day on the back nine at TPC Summerlin. Herman picked up four birdies and a 47'1" eagle on the par-5 16th to start his round, and then added three more birdies on the front. His 13'11" birdie on the par-4 seventh was his only birdie that fell from outside of 10 feet, as proximity was clearly a key to his round. He landed 16 GIR and his strokes gained: tee-to-gree was over four strokes and his strokes gained: putting was better than two strokes. Needless to say, he was nearly flawless.

Jim Herman will start in the 12th position of the opening reshuffle after missing out on the FedExCup Playoffs.

Herman finished the PGA TOUR season ranked 182nd in the FEC standings, and immediately took to the Tour Finals to retain his status. He posted three top 15s, including a pair of T4s to easily keep his exempt status. Herman has just two top 10s in 65 career PGA TOUR starts, which means gamers can ignore him in most formats.

Jim Herman is set to compete in his third Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club later this week.

Herman has made both of his previous cuts, highlighted by a T11 last year. Entering the week 182nd in the FedExCup standings, he is virtually assured of a trip to the Tour Finals. There is no way that he will fall outside of the top 200, but it would take a career week for him to crack the top 125 in the FEC standings or the money list. He hasn't cracked the top 25 all season.

Jim Herman makes his way back to The Old White TPC this week for his third start at The Greenbrier Classic.

Herman is a perfect 2-for-2 at The Greenbrier Resort, but has signed for just three red numbers in eight rounds. Lacking a top 50 in his last seven events, it's safe to say his form is not heating up. Sitting at 173rd in the FedExCup standings, it's time to make the final push. Gamers don't need to take an unnecessary risk on Herman this week.

Jim Herman returns to the FedEx St. Jude Classic for his third look at TPC Southwind.

After missing the cut in 2011, Herman returned in 2013 and improved to a T47. In his profitable trip to Memphis, he opened with three sub-par rounds before fading to a 4-over-par 74 in the finale. His T26 in the Open to begin the 2013-14 season remains his best finish of the season, and he's fallen 164th in the FedExCup standings.

Jim Herman returns to Charlotte for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Herman is 1-for-2 at Quail Hollow with three of his six rounds posted in red numbers. Boasting seven cuts made on the season but zero top 25s, he has proven his ability to hover around the cut line. Gamers should expect more of the same this week.

Jim Herman has been added to the published field of this week's Shell Houston Open.

Herman was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Briny Baird withdrew. Herman is riding a consecutive cuts made streak of five, but hasn't cracked a top 25 among seven paydays this season and sits 149th in FedExCup points. He's 2-for-3 at Redstone with a T14 in 2012.

Jim Herman takes his third crack at the Valero Texas Open later this week.

In Herman's previous two trips, he missed the cut last year following a T59 in 2011. He's made six of his nine cuts this season, but has yet to crack the top 25. That's a big reason why he's down the FedExCup points list in the 144th position. He has made his last four cuts, but has only seen action once since Pebble Beach. The reshuffle is proving to be a tough category in 2013-14.

Jim Herman posted a 1-under-par 31-38=69 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

We last had our eyes on him in México in mid-November when he withdrew after one round of the Mayakoba when his wife went into labor with the couple's second child. It was the best kind of withdrawal, especially since the proud papa wasn't injured. Today at Waialae, he found three birdies and an eagle to help offset two bogeys and a double. Herman rolled in conventional birdies from 10'11" and 18'7" at the third and seventh holes, respectively, but his birdie-3 at No. 6 was the highlight. After finding the rough left of the fairway on the 460-yard test, his approach found the rough right of a greenside bunker. He then jarred his third from 27 yards.

Jim Herman is listed in the published field of next week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

The 36-year-old PGA TOUR junior departed México in mid-November after an opening 71 when his wife went into labor. With what was no doubt a fulfilling holiday break behind him, he'll be making his third appearance at Waialae where he's 1-for-2 with a T57/MDF in 2011. Herman has cashed twice already this season, but he's gone five consecutive starts on both the PGA and Tours. He turned in a spirited second half of 2013, so we know he's capable. Even though he's in the reshuffle again, keep a close eye and invest if he flashes signs of that form again.

Jim Herman withdrew from the OHL Classic at Mayakoba following his opening round because his wife went into labor with the couple's second child.

Herman signed for an even-par 36-35=71 before calling it a week. He canceled four birdies with four bogeys. Unlike when Hunter Mahan withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open while leading that tournament at the midpoint, Herman doesn't necessarily have the kind of financial cushion of Mahan, but the non-winner will probably rise a couple of notches when the first reshuffle occurs following the OHL. He began in the 26-hole, and then posted paydays in the first two events.

Jim Herman has been added to the published field of this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Herman started the week as the fifth alternate, and then gained entry when Hideki Matsuyama withdrew this morning. Herman has been on a roll even though he slipped to shared 26th place at the Open. He needs to be on your short list of guys that will make a cut when you need one.

Jim Herman settled for a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the Open, improving to 10-under 203.

On a day where most of the top 10 signed for deep numbers, Herman circled three birdies to two bogeys. He had a chance to take it one deeper with a 9'3" birdie on 18, but missed. That came on the heels of a 3-putt bogey on the par-4 17th. After gaining over two strokes with the putter in the first two rounds, he lost more than a stroke in his third round. That was the real difference.
