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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
