Jim Herman orchestrated a 3-under-par 35-34=69 to kick off his week at the BMW Championship.
Herman arrived at Crooked Stick Golf Club ranked 41st in the FedExCup standings. Thanks to a 3 hour, 33 minute, rain delay he's finally closed out his first round (on Friday morning). Currently, he sits at T11 on the live leaderboard, moving him up just one spot in the projected FEC standings. He'll need to keep rising up the leaderboard as the week progresses, if he wants to punch his ticket to the TOUR Championship in two weeks. If the 38-year-old keeps gaining 1.29 strokes off-the-tee, per round, he has a good chance at keeping his name in the mix. Sep 9 - 9:15 AM

Jim Herman penciled a 3-under-par 33-35=68 during round two of The Barclays and will enter the weekend on 3-under 139, currently T9 on the live leaderboard.

Herman landed just 11 greens but swallowed just one bogey on the day. That blemish came at his opening hole when he missed the green at the par-4 10th and couldn't splash in the 19'6" par-saving attempt. Through two days, Herman is not excelling in one particular area of his game, but using a balanced attack to keep Bethpage Black in check. Entering the week at 41st in FedExCup race, the 38-year-old is playing care-free as he attempts to play his way to East Lake for the first time in his career. Herman made his debut in the FedExCup Playoffs last year and made it to the second leg before getting eliminated.

Jim Herman heads to Akron, Ohio, for his first crack at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Herman earned his way into the field thanks to a victory at the Shell Houston Open in April. It'll be just his second start in a WGC event (T38, 2011 WGC-HSBC Champions). Herman may feel a little more comfortable in this one, though, as he grew up in Ohio and attended the University of Cincinnati. The Bearcat enters the week ranked 34th in strokes gained off-the-tee, which could pay dividends this week on a tough driving course. Gamers should not focus their attention on Herman this week, but he makes for an intriguing sleeper in deeper formats like DFS.

Making his second career start at Colonial Country Club, Jim Herman rattled off a 3-under-par 33-34=67 to open his week at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

Herman split nine (of 14) fairways but managed to land just 10 greens in regulation. His scrambling was on point, as he managed to square just one bogey on the round, missing a 12-foot par-saving attempt at the par-3 fourth hole. The highlight of the round came at the par-5 first hole when he splashed in from a greenside bunker to circle a birdie. Herman finished T33 in his DDI debut last year, and he's opened up four strokes better, this time around.

Jim Herman heads to TPC Sawgrass this week for his debut at THE PLAYERS.

The Palm City resident will be three hours from home this week as he makes his tournament debut. While the tournament will be new, the area is not. Herman spent years on the Golden Bear Tour which plays in the West Palm Beach area. More importantly, Herman broke through on the PGA TOUR just six weeks ago with his victory at the Shell Houston Open. Since then, he's had a bit of a winner's hangover, finishing outside the top 50 in three straight, missing the cut in two of them. Herman's experience with Florida golf is great to boost his sleeper status, but he's still a risky fantasy option in all formats.
May 11 - 9:24 PM

Jim Herman sleepwalked to a 6-over-par 38-40=78 in the second round of the 80th Masters and at 9-over 153, missed the cut by three strokes in his tournament debut.

The 38-year-old was the last man in via his breakthrough at last week's Shell Houston Open, was the first man off in yesterday's first round, and recorded the first birdie of the tournament with a chip-in at the par-4 first. He added circles at Nos. 2 and 13, but squared six for 3-over 75. The Cincinnati native chased with a birdie-less six-bogey 78 on Friday to trunk slam with 31 others. This was his fourth appearance in the majors -- the other three at the U.S. Open -- and first since T67 at the 2013 U.S. Open. His win at the SHO also gained him exemptions into this year's PGA Championship and the WGC-Bridgestone, where he'll be making his debut in both.
Apr 9 - 6:46 AM

Jim Herman sped through his debut at Augusta National Golf Club, posting a 3-over-par 37-38=75 to get the week started at the 80th Masters.

Last week's Shell Houston Open champion went out in the first pairing with Steven Bowditch and they completed their round in just over four hours. Herman opened strong with a chip-in birdie at the first and a tap-in birdie at the par-5 second hole, climbing out to an early lead. His round stalled out from there, adding six bogeys while adding just one more circle. Herman landed 10 greens in his round today and should be pleased with his debut at this iconic venue.
Apr 7 - 12:45 PM

Overnight co-leader Jim Herman, a pre-tourney 300/1 outright, twirled a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's final round of the Shell Houston Open to win his first PGA TOUR title in his 106th career start, fending off Henrik Stenson by one shot with a 72-hole aggregate of 15-under 273.

The 191st-ranked player in the world converted his first career 54-hole lead/co-lead and with the win, is the last invitee to the Masters, where he'll be making his debut. He began the finale co-leading with Jamie Lovemark on 11-under after opening his sixth SHO in 69-69-67. The 38-year-old began with a two-putt par before connecting from 8'8" on the par-4 second. He added a second birdie on the par-5 fourth before hitting his tee shot on the par-4 fifth OB leading to his (lone) bogey and reached the turn at 1-under and one back. The Cincinnati native circled a 13-footer on the par-4 11th, a two-putt '4' on the 13th and then with the shot of his life, pitched-in from the left rough, 39'9" from the hole for birdie-2 at 16 to push one ahead of Stenson. He two-putted the 17th for par, and then after a 10-minute wait, striped his drive on the 18th 316 yards into the fairway. It was the longest of the week on the par-4 finisher. One green and two putts later, he was a champion.
Apr 3 - 6:35 PM

Jim Herman smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Shell Houston Open to post 11-under 205, up seven places on the live leaderboard to T1, and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Herman shares the 54-hole lead with Jamie Lovemark, one clear of three players.

The 38-year-old is making his sixth Shell visit with a best of T12 in 2014 -- his only cash inside the top 50 at the GC of Houston. Before he could get his third frame underway however, he first had to return early Saturday to complete four holes of his second round, which he played in three pars and in a sign of things to come, a walk-off 3 at the par-4 18th. The Cincinnati native and Florida resident began R3 in the fourth-to-last threesome after opening in twin 69s. He circled five on 15 greens in regulation and wrapped with an up-and-down par on the 18th to remain blemish-free. Herman's split included a 14-footer at the par-4 second and a long of 19'6" at the par-5 15th. He's winless on TOUR in 105 career starts with a best of T4 at the 2015 Zurich Classic.
Apr 2 - 5:39 PM

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.

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.
