In his fourth season on the PGA TOUR, Jim Herman makes his FedExCup Playoffs debut at The Barclays in Edison, New Jersey.
Herman was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and resides in Palm City, Florida, but his club affiliation is Trump National in Bedminster, New Jersey. While it's not the venue for this week's Playoffs opener, which is Plainfield Country Club, and never has been, it is noteworthy in a 120-man field that has only one New Jersey native in it (Morgan Hoffmann). Also noteworthy, of the 18 first-timers to make it to the postseason, Herman shares elder-statesman honors with 37-year-old Steve Wheatcroft. Herman ended the regular season 89th in the FedExCup standings, easily eclipsing his previous best of 139th in the standings in 2013. He made 17 of 25 cuts on the season, with seven top 25s, two for top 10s, including a season-best T4 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at the end of April.
