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. Jul 1 - 12:24 PM

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.
Apr 30 - 10:31 AM

Jim Herman has been added to the published field of this week's Shell Houston Open.

Herman was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Briny Baird withdrew. Herman is riding a consecutive cuts made streak of five, but hasn't cracked a top 25 among seven paydays this season and sits 149th in FedExCup points. He's 2-for-3 at Redstone with a T14 in 2012.

Jim Herman takes his third crack at the Valero Texas Open later this week.

In Herman's previous two trips, he missed the cut last year following a T59 in 2011. He's made six of his nine cuts this season, but has yet to crack the top 25. That's a big reason why he's down the FedExCup points list in the 144th position. He has made his last four cuts, but has only seen action once since Pebble Beach. The reshuffle is proving to be a tough category in 2013-14.
Mar 25 - 8:48 PM

Jim Herman posted a 1-under-par 31-38=69 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

We last had our eyes on him in México in mid-November when he withdrew after one round of the Mayakoba when his wife went into labor with the couple's second child. It was the best kind of withdrawal, especially since the proud papa wasn't injured. Today at Waialae, he found three birdies and an eagle to help offset two bogeys and a double. Herman rolled in conventional birdies from 10'11" and 18'7" at the third and seventh holes, respectively, but his birdie-3 at No. 6 was the highlight. After finding the rough left of the fairway on the 460-yard test, his approach found the rough right of a greenside bunker. He then jarred his third from 27 yards.
Jan 9 - 7:17 PM

Jim Herman is listed in the published field of next week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

The 36-year-old PGA TOUR junior departed México in mid-November after an opening 71 when his wife went into labor. With what was no doubt a fulfilling holiday break behind him, he'll be making his third appearance at Waialae where he's 1-for-2 with a T57/MDF in 2011. Herman has cashed twice already this season, but he's gone five consecutive starts on both the PGA and Tours. He turned in a spirited second half of 2013, so we know he's capable. Even though he's in the reshuffle again, keep a close eye and invest if he flashes signs of that form again.
Jan 3 - 7:04 PM

Jim Herman withdrew from the OHL Classic at Mayakoba following his opening round because his wife went into labor with the couple's second child.

Herman signed for an even-par 36-35=71 before calling it a week. He canceled four birdies with four bogeys. Unlike when Hunter Mahan withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open while leading that tournament at the midpoint, Herman doesn't necessarily have the kind of financial cushion of Mahan, but the non-winner will probably rise a couple of notches when the first reshuffle occurs following the OHL. He began in the 26-hole, and then posted paydays in the first two events.

Jim Herman has been added to the published field of this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Herman started the week as the fifth alternate, and then gained entry when Hideki Matsuyama withdrew this morning. Herman has been on a roll even though he slipped to shared 26th place at the Open. He needs to be on your short list of guys that will make a cut when you need one.

Jim Herman settled for a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the Open, improving to 10-under 203.

On a day where most of the top 10 signed for deep numbers, Herman circled three birdies to two bogeys. He had a chance to take it one deeper with a 9'3" birdie on 18, but missed. That came on the heels of a 3-putt bogey on the par-4 17th. After gaining over two strokes with the putter in the first two rounds, he lost more than a stroke in his third round. That was the real difference.

Jim Herman spun a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in his second round of the Open to post 9-under 133 at the midpoint, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He just keeps on keepin' on. Saddled by only one bogey again today, he went 4-for-5 in scrambling and found six birdies, including conversions from 14'11" and 12'11", respectively, at the 17th and fourth holes. Herman reached the house today with a 36-hole strokes gained-putting split just under 2.700, so his confidence remains high. Given his form over the last few months, it would not be a surprise if he emerges with his first PGA TOUR title this weekend.

Jim Herman turned in a 4-under-par 32-35=67 for his opening round of the Open.

If you were paying attention to how the 35-year-old polished off last season, then you're not surprised at today's effort. After an awful first half of 2013, he closed out 8-for-9 with four top 20s before regaining fully exempt status via the Tour Finals. Today he hit 13 greens and suffered just one bogey against five birdies, three of which dropping in from 11 feet or longer. Herman also poured in a par save from 13'3" at the third hole. He's three strokes in arrears of the overnight lead.

Jim Herman spun a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the opening round of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship and leads by two, as action was suspended due to darkness.

Rain delayed play not long after the first tee balls were in the air on Thursday, but that didn't stop Herman from circling seven birdies and adding 11 pars in his opener. Among the highlights, he landed 14 GIR and putted to a 1.50 average. He almost avoided the Tour playoffs all together, finishing inside the top 11 in three of his last five PGA TOUR starts and ending the season 139th in the FedExCup standings.

Jim Herman swallowed a double bogey on his final hole of the third round of the Wyndham Championship, settling for a 2-over-par 35-37=72.

Herman's a guy that needs a big week at Sedgefield Country Club, entering the tournament at 149th in the FedExCup standings. Even though he is inside the top 10, he must continue to move up if he is to sneak inside the top 125. He enters the finale at 5-under 205.

The third round of the Wyndham Championship is scheduled to begin at 7:15 a.m. ET on Saturday.

Rain is expected to fall at some point on Saturday. Because the area has been inundated with precipitation in recent weeks, thus causing the water table to rise, PGA TOUR officials want to get out in front of potential delays as much as possible. Threesomes will be scheduled to go off the first and 10th tees with the leaders scheduled to go off No. 1 at 9:15 a.m. Jim Herman will begin his third round from the antepenultimate grouping off the first hole. He turned in a 4-under-par 33-33=66 today with five birdies. The set included rolls of 11'2", 39'1" and 18'5" at the 16th, fourth and fifth holes, respectively. He reached the halfway point in 7-under 133, four strokes in arrears of the overnight lead.
