Jim Herman crashed the field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Herman was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday. He gained entry following a trio of withdrawals. After a career-best T7 at The Honda Classic, he withdrew early from Puerto Rico, and was then bumped from the field at Copperhead following the wave of top-10 qualifiers from the PRO. So, Herman arrives for his debut at Bay Hill with a couple of weeks of rest from competition. He's currently 96th in the FedExCup standings. Mar 16 - 11:28 AM

Chad Collins, David Lingmerth, Fabian Gomez and Jim Herman has assumed the respective positions of the first four alternates at the Valspar Championship.

With seven top 10s at the Puerto Rico Open crashing the field and only three withdrawals this morning, these guys are the odd men out. Herman was an early withdrawal from the PRO following a T7 at The Honda Classic, so his shift is particularly stinging. Collins tied for 16th in the opposite event on Sunday, one stroke outside the top 10, which would have guaranteed a tee time at at Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course this week.

Jim Herman has been removed from the published field of this week's Puerto Rico Open.

And why not? The 37-year-old is fresh off a career-best T7 at The Honda Classic. It vaulted him up 36 spots to 81st in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 2 - 2:51 PM

Jim Herman carded 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his final round of The Honda Classic to post 3-under 277, good for a share of seventh place.

The opening-round leader held it together nicely all week. Herman ranked T10 in fairways hit (37 of 56) and T7 in greens in regulation (50). He went 3-for-13 in birdie chances in the finale, the most notable an eight-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 sixth hole. Herman also poured in a par save from 12-and-a-half feet at the par-4 second. He had two top 10s in 76 previous PGA TOUR starts, both occurring in 2013, but today's is a career-best. He's scheduled to make the trip to Puerto Rico this week.
Mar 2 - 11:26 AM

Jim Herman signed for a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in the third round of The Honda Classic, falling to 2-under 208 for the tournament.

Herman found three birdies, including a 21'3" roll on the par-4 13th, on his navigation of PGA National's Champion Course. Unfortunately his two bogeys and a double bogey on the par-3 17th erased all of his handiwork plus one. The 18-hole leader has slowly retreated, but remains inside the top 10 with 18 holes to play.
Mar 1 - 3:36 PM

First-round leader Jim Herman turned in a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in his second round of The Honda Classic.

He went just 1-for-12 in birdie chances and all his conversion were inside eight feet. Yet, he didn't miss from inside 9'11", so Herman's precision on approach was not strong. He reached the break in 3-under 137 and sits four strokes off Padraig Harrington's 36-hole lead.

Jim Herman turned in a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of The Honda Classic to assume sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

The Tour Finals grad was one of the five bounced from the field when the second reshuffle of the season occurred after last week's Northern Trust Open, so perhaps he's connected with a little motivation given that midseason plight. He went 4-for-4 in scrambling at PGA National today, a slate protected with a zero-putt five-yarder for par at the par-4 11th hole. His longest of five birdies traveled 34'8" at the par-4 16th.
Feb 26 - 1:54 PM

Jim Herman regained entry into this week's Honda Classic.

He was bumped to second alternate after the second reshuffle of the season at the conclusion of the West Coast Swing, but rejoined the party following two withdrawals. Herman has survived six of 10 cuts this season, but both of his top 30s occurred in the fall. He's never played PGA National in competition.

Jim Herman has regained entry into this week's Northern Trust Open.

Herman was bumped to first alternate after the top 10s at Pebble Beach were officially added, but he's back in at Riviera after Chez Reavie's withdrawal. Herman needs a good week to avoid tumbling a bit in the reshuffle. He's cashed six of nine times this season and sits 107th in the FedExCup standings, but by no means can he rest on his laurels. He'll be making his debut at Riviera Country Club.
Feb 17 - 11:30 AM

Jim Herman has been squeezed to first alternate in the field of 144 at the Northern Trust Open.

With a trio of top-10 exemptions at Pebble Beach where Herman placed T65/MDF, it was likely that someone was going to get elbowed out this morning. His spot in the overall pecking order was just low enough that he's paying the price. One sponsor exemption and four open qualifiers will eventually complete the field, but it's rare that the first alternate on Monday morning doesn't get in by the time the tournament starts on Thursday morning.
Feb 16 - 10:53 AM

Jim Herman arrives at this week's Farmers Insurance Open ranked 111th in the FedExCup standings.

Herman has moved up the FEC ladder via volume, not quality. He's teed it up seven times already in the young season, missing the cut on three of those occasions. He has two top 25s, beating his 2013-14 total of zero. Herman is 2-for-3 at Torrey Pines, but neither cut made resulted in anything better than a T47 finish.
Feb 3 - 11:24 PM

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.

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.
