Jim Herman fashioned a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the RBC Canadian Open
Herman missed his last two cuts but he's 100th in the FedExCup standings and poised to make his debut in the Playoffs. With more rounds like today's, he'll stick around for a while, too. Today at Glen Abbey, he traded six birdies with one bogey before landing three shots off the clubhouse lead. Herman's most impressive conversion occurred at the par-4 17th hole where he jarred a bunker shot from 14 yards for birdie. His longest conventional conversion disappeared for par from 34-and-a-half feet at the par-4 11th. Jul 23 - 3:49 PM

Jim Herman arrives at Glen Abbey for this week's RBC Canadian Open ranked 100th in the FedExCup standings.

Herman enters the week on the heels of two straight missed cuts. Prior to that, he'd collected seven straight paydays. The University of Cincinnati product has landed 72.38 percent of greens in regulation, ranking fifth on TOUR. A third straight missed cut would call for concern, but gamers should expect that slump to end this week.
Jul 21 - 10:28 PM

Jim Herman preps for his fourth career Travelers Championship and enters the tournament ranked 86th in the FedExCup standings.

Herman is 13-for-19 on his 2014-15 campaign posting five top 25s, including a season-best T4 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. His resume post-NOLA reads: T13-T33-T73/MDF-T40. The 37-year-old has missed two of three cuts at TPC River Highlands, with his lone payday coming in 2013. In that edition, he was T7 after 54 holes, fading to T18 on a final-round 2-over-par 72. Herman began the year at No. 386 in the Official World Golf Ranking and has improved his position to No. 222 entering the week. He ranks a lofty second on TOUR in greens in regulation and third in ball-striking, but 145th in strokes gained: putting. The flat stick has been improving however, registering positive numbers in SGP in five of his last seven starts.

Jim Herman bobbed and weaved to a 4-under-par 31-37=68 in today's third round of the Wells Fargo Championship and at 8-under 208 will enter the final round in a five-way tie for ninth, 10 shots back of the 54-hole lead.

It was a story of two nines for the 37-year-old Herman. His bogey-free outward nine was highlighted by a chip-in eagle from nine yards out on the par-5 seventh and was augmented with birdies on Nos. 1, 2 and 8. His misfortunes began immediately after the turn with a one-putt bogey on the par-5 10th and he added another dropped shot on the 12th, failing to get up-and-down from the right rough 28 yards from the hole. His three-putt bogey on the 17th put a stamp on the proceedings and quickly erased the positive memories of his back-to-back birdies on the 14th and 15th.

Jim Herman painted a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 19-under 269 and the early clubhouse lead.

Herman began his final frame at 12-under (T14) and four shots back of the 54-hole mark. He circled his first birdie on the par-5 second, converting from 10'6", but it was his second par breaker that set the tone, canning a 47'5" bomb on No. 6. That led to four birdies over his next five holes, adding a final birdie on the par-5 18th. The 37-year-old's career-best finish on the PGA TOUR is T7 at Honda (this year) and this outing will surely best that.

Jim Herman enjoyed a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Zurich Classic to post 12-under 204, four shots adrift of the 54-hole leaders.

Prior to this week, Herman was 0-for-3 at TPC Louisiana. The Tour grad sits 20th on the reshuffle list and was looking for a big week in NOLA. The 37-year-old striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to his seven birdie, two bogey loop. You knew it might be Herman's day when he holed a 35'9" monster for birdie on his opening hole. He added par breakers on Nos. 2, 7, 12, 13, 16 and 17 and squared his second (and last) bogey on the par-4 15th, three-jacking from 36'8".
Apr 26 - 1:20 PM

Jim Herman is in the published field at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans and enters 123rd in FedExCup points.

Herman is 0-for-3 at TPC Louisiana and shot 74-70 last year to miss the cut by two. In his last four starts, he book-ended a T57 at SHO and T7 at the Honda with missed cuts at Valero and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The 37-year-old Tour grad sits 20th on the reshuffle list and is 4-for-9 in 2015 with the Honda-T7 as his only top-30 finish.
Apr 22 - 10:39 AM

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.
Mar 9 - 11:30 AM

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.
Feb 28 - 11:45 AM

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.
