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. Aug 26 - 12:32 PM

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.
Aug 21 - 4:57 PM

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.
Aug 20 - 12:00 PM

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.

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.
Jun 24 - 1:51 PM

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.
May 16 - 9:14 PM

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.
Apr 26 - 3:50 PM

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.
