Jim Herman fashioned a 5-under-par 33-34=67 at Pebble Beach Golf Links to reach the midpoint of this week's AT&T Pro-Am at 7-under 136.
Herman managed the course well today, splitting 11 (of 14) fairways on his way to 12 greens in regulation. It wasn't all tee-to-green, as he gained 2.708 strokes with the flat stick, as well. Most notable was the 14'6" birdie blast on the par-4 11th hole. It was just one of his four putts rolled in from outside eight feet today. Herman climbed 29 spots on the day and will enter the weekend T10 and four shots off the co-leaders. Feb 12 - 6:53 PM

Jim Herman takes his first crack at the Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale in this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Herman finally found his footing last year in his fourth season on TOUR, posting career marks in FedExCup points (74th) and earnings ($1.2M). He ranked second in greens in regulation and ninth in total driving but for the fourth straight season, he finished outside the top 110 in strokes gained: putting. The putting woes continue this season for the 38-year-old as he sits 202nd in SGP thru eight starts (seven made cuts). Herman's ball-striking remains strong (15th-ranked) but his scoring after the cut is lagging -- 50th-ranked in scoring average before the cut and 144th after.
Feb 3 - 12:59 PM

Jim Herman went 4-for-5 in the fall portion of the wraparound schedule with three top 25s, one going for a top 10.

The Ohio native and Florida resident made five starts in the fall and ranks 12th in total driving and 3rd in ball striking but 203rd in strokes gained: putting at -1.395. In his previous four seasons on TOUR, he's not ranked in the top 100 in that latter category, so it's easy to see where he's lacking. That said, he's put up seven top-30 finishes in his last 10 events, including T18-T17-T10 over his last three. The 38-year-old was T5 after 54 holes in his latest start at the RSM (66-69-67) but closed in 1-over 71, breaking a stretch of 11 straight red numbers.

Jim Herman twirled a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of The RSM Classic to post 10-under 202, six swings back of 54-hole leader Kevin Kisner and in a two-way tie for fifth.

Herman's personal best in 96 PGA TOUR starts is T4 at the Zurich Classic back in April. It was one of just five career top 10s, including a T10 three weeks ago at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia. Inclusive of last week's T17 at the OHL Classic, and his first three loops at The RSM Classic, it's apparent that he likes "classics" having now put 11 consecutive rounds in the sub-par category, 37-under-par during that span. The 38-year-old circled four on Saturday on 16 greens in regulation. Thru 54 holes, he's T1 in the field in GIR with 46/54 for an 85.19 percent clip. He's also T2 in driving accuracy (39/42) at 92.86 percent. Herman dropped his lone shot with a three-putt from 38'10" on the par-4 13th. He moved up four places on the leaderboard and will play in the penultimate threesome on Sunday.

Jim Herman backed up his opening 66 at The RSM Classic with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 at Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course in today's second round of The RSM Classic.

He's probably talking to himself a bit this afternoon as he missed only one fairway and four greens in regulation, yet converted only two birdies against one bogey. Both par breakers ranged 10-13 feet, so those weren't even gimmes. Through 36 holes, Herman has totaled 27 (of 28) fairways and 30 greens in regulation. He's 7-under 135 at the break, four strokes back of overnight leader Kevin Chappell.

Jim Herman chipped in for eagle from just off the green at the par-5 18th hole at Sea Island's Plantation Course to post 6-under-par 36-30=66 in his opening round of The RSM Classic and join clubhouse co-leaders David Hearn and Jeff Overton.

Herman arrived in solid form with a T10 in Malaysia and a T17 in México, so it's not surprising that he's making early noise in the Golden Isles. He piped all 14 fairways and missed only two greens in regulation en route to five birdies and the closing 3. The 38-year-old will slide over to the Seaside Course for Friday's second round.

Jim Herman's 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba included an ace at the par-3 15th hole.

Herman used a 7-iron on the 158-yard one-shotter to reach bogey-free 5-under on the round. He bogeyed the par-4 16th and closed par-par to post 6-under 136. That landed him at T10 when he signed his card. His 1 is the sixth on the PGA TOUR this season. Thomas Aiken opened his OHL Classic with an ace at the par-3 10th on Thursday. It's the first time since 1990 that a golfer's first shot of any tournament was a hole-in-one.

Jim Herman completed the 72 holes of the CIMB Classic in 17-under-par 70-66-68-67=271 and sits in a share of ninth place as the tournament nears its conclusion.

Herman is in his fifth season on the PGA TOUR, but it's his first exempt from the reshuffle. He opened 2015-16 with a solo 72nd at the Open, and then missed the cut in Vegas last week. While he coasted along in the first three rounds in Malaysia, he ran through the tape today with five birdies against no bogeys or worse. He should hold on for his best finish in his last 15 events. Overall, Herman sat inside the top 15 in fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts per GIR at last check, so it's hardly a surprise that he earned our attention.

In his fifth season on the PGA TOUR, Jim Herman is in Kuala Lumpur for his debut in the CIMB Classic.

Herman finished a career-best 74th in the FedExCup standings last season with eight top-25 finishes on 27 starts. Two went for top 10s, including a season-best T4 at the Zurich Classic in late April. He made his first appearance in the FEC Playoffs opening with T13 at The Barclays but chased with a missed cut at the Deutsche Bank and a second-round exit. The 37-year-old has made an inauspicious start to his fifth season on TOUR with a 72nd-place finish in the, closing in 5-over 77, and a MC by two at last week's Shriners on rounds of 70-72. He has played one prior no-cut event, posting a T38 at the 78-man WGC-HSBC Champions in 2011 when it was an unofficial money event on the PGA TOUR.

Jim Herman readies for his course debut at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Herman impressed in his FedExCup Playoffs debut last week, finishing the week with a T13. Now he makes the short trip to TPC Boston where loads of birdies will be on the agenda. Entering the week ranked 64th in the FedExCup standings, he is safe for now, but can't afford any missteps this week. With a strokes gained:tee-to-green rank of 53rd, Herman certainly has sleeper potential written all over him.

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.

Jim Herman tossed up a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to put 12-under 198 on the board, three shy of 54-hole leader Jason Gore.

Herman began Moving Day in a five-way tie for 11th (8-under) and three back. After today's effort, he's still three adrift, but jumped six places on the leaderboard to T5. Herman opened with eight two-putt pars and one birdie at the par-5 fifth (from 3'1") to turn 1-under. He missed two scoring chances from 10 feet and in at the third and the eighth. Two additional two-putt pars followed after the break, prior to back-to-back circles on Nos. 12 and 13, from 12'2" and 8'7", respectively. He squared his lone bogey at 14, three-putting from 46'11", but penciled back-to-back circles again on 17 and 18, the former from 41'5". Making his 90th career start on TOUR, the 37-year-old's career best is a T4 at this year's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Jim Herman followed his opening 63 at the Wyndham Championship with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round to post 8-under 132 at the midpoint, three off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Sigh. He landed 15 greens in regulation but bogeyed each of the other three holes, all par 4s, including No. 9 where he concluded his walk around Sedgefield. All of Herman's conversions were from inside 10 feet; all four of his birdies were within seven feet from the cup. He's totaled 31 greens in regulation, which is key to success in this shootout, but he'll need to clean up much better if he's going to make a run at his maiden victory.

Jim Herman cruised to a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-31=63 in today's opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

He missed only three (of 14) fairways and two greens in regulation en route to seven birdies at Sedgefield Country Club today. Herman birdied four of his last five holes, but his longest conversions stretched 12'11" and 19'5" at the par-4 second and sixth holes, respectively. He also poured in a par save from 10-and-a-half feet at the par-4 10th. The 37-year-old started the week slotted 93rd in the FedExCup standings, so he's headed to his first Playoffs, but like so many in the field, he's still chasing his first PGA TOUR title. The Wyndham marks Herman's 90th career on the circuit.

In his fourth full season on the PGA TOUR, Jim Herman warms up for his FedExCup Playoffs debut at this week's Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina.

If you look deep, Herman may get some fantasy action this week. He's 2-for-3 in Greensboro posting a T11 in 2013, and he also finished T13 up the road in Charlotte at the Wells Fargo in mid-May, the last tournament in which he's posted four sub-par rounds in. The three-time Tour grad, most recently in 2013, enters the week 93rd in the FedExCup standings having made 16 cuts on 24 starts with six top 25s. His season best is a T4 at the Zurich Classic and added a T7 at The Honda Classic back in March. The 37-year-old ranks third on TOUR in ball-striking but 139th in strokes gained: putting.
