James Hahn polished off the CIMB Classic with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 to post 21-under 267, good for outright sixth place, four shots back of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.
He missed only one of the 14 fairways and two greens in regulation today, but still dropped two shots with bogeys. Elsewhere, Hahn collected an eagle (at the par-5 fifth hole) and four birdies. He ranked T2 in the field with 45 (of 56) fairways hit and led with 64 GIR. This is his first top 10 in his last 10 starts and just his seventh in 84 career starts. Nov 1 - 1:53 AM

With a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-34=64 in today's third round of the CIMB Classic, James Hahn established the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 17-under 199.

And even that won't hold for the overnight lead despite Hahn's second blemish-free card in as many days. After Friday's 7-under 65, he hit all 18 greens in regulation at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club's West Course today. The perfect precision yielded eight birdies, including four in a row beginning at the par-4 second hole. He's missed only six GIR all week.

James Hahn hung a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 in today's second round of the CIMB Classic.

Hahn sandwiched four birdies with two bogeys in the lid-lifter, walking off with bogey-5 at the ninth hole, but it didn't affect him today. He missed only one green in regulation at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club today and converted seven times for birdies, including four in a row on his inward nine. He arrived in Malaysia having gone seven starts without a top 30, but at 9-under 135, he's just five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

James Hahn tees it up in his second consecutive CIMB Classic at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.

Hahn went T56 at last season's CIMB on rounds of 74-77-68-71, a distant 19 shots adrift of champion Ryan Moore. He had 17 par breakers, including 16 birdies, but squared 14 bogeys, a double, and a quadruple bogey-8. The 33-year-old finished T66 (of 77) in putts per round averaging 31.25 per, totaling 125 for the week. He ended last season a career-best 51st in the FedExCup standings, primarily on the strength of his first PGA TOUR title, winning the Farmers Insurance Open in late February in a three-way playoff. Post-Riviera, he mustered just one more top 10 (T6, The Greenbrier Classic) over his last 17 events. The South Korean-born Hahn took up residence in California after graduating from UC-Berkeley in 2003 and turned pro that same year, but didn't make it to the TOUR until 2013.

James Hahn heads into this week's BMW Championship ranked 53rd in the FedExCup standings.

It's been a career season for the once-journeyman, to say the least. He's won his first PGA TOUR event and racked up over $2,000,000 in earnings along the way. The FedExCup Playoffs are not his forte though, evidenced by a 1-for-4 record over his career. Perhaps a no-cut event like this week's BMW is just what the doctor ordered, but gamers should not get their hopes up.

James Hahn arrives at this week's Quicken Loans National ranked 34th in the FedExCup standings.

Hahn closed out last week's RBC Canadian Open with a T11, signing for red numbers in all four rounds. It was his second top 15 over his last three starts. Nothing jumps off the page when looking at his statistical profile, but there are no red flags either, as he ranks 58th in the all-around ranking. Hahn is worthy of consideration this week, but gamers shouldn't let his last three starts steal the entire conversation.

James Hahn crafted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in today's final round of The Greenbrier Classic to reach the finish line at 11-under 269, one stroke back of the clubhouse leader Russell Henley.

Hahn, making his 74th career start on the PGA TOUR, won his maiden TOUR title this past February at the Northern Trust Open in a playoff. He began the Sunday festivities in a 15-way logjam at 7-under, four swings back of the 54-hole leaders. On his round, he hit nine (of 14) fairways but landed just 11 greens in regulation. It didn't cost him the whole day; that is, until the last, where he squared his lone bogey of the round after failing to get up-and-down from the right rough short of the green. An untimely bogey as they come, as it dropped him out of a share of the clubhouse lead. It remains to be seen if it will cost him a qualifying spot into the 144th Open Championship, which will go to the low four in the top 12 not already exempt. Hahn sits second in that chase and T2 on the live leaderboard. The 33-year-old's personal-best in two career Greenbrier appearances was T41 in 2013.
Jul 5 - 3:42 PM

James Hahn enjoyed a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic, reaching the halfway point in 7-under 133, one stroke off the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After hitting 15 greens in regulation and trading five birdies with a bogey in the lid-lifter, Hahn went 5-for-5 in scrambling today with three birdies. All ranged 10-13 feet. While this is his sixth payday since breaking through for victory at Riviera in late February, Hahn is still chasing his next top 25.
Jul 3 - 12:56 PM

James Hahn makes his third trek back to The Old White TPC for this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Hahn is still trying to get his groove back. Since his maiden win back in February, he's finished inside the top 50 just once, with no top 25s to his name during that stretch. Hahn's course history at The Old White TPC isn't terrible, but doesn't inspire confidence with a T41 and 89th-place finish on his resume. Gamers should look elsewhere when piecing their rosters together this week.
Jun 30 - 8:44 AM

James Hahn enjoyed a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in today's opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and assumed outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Hahn went an incredible 8-for-12 in scoring chances today with eight birdies. Five of them ran longer than 10 feet. The highlights disappeared from 21'6" at the par-4 10th hole and 54'8" at the par-4 first. He also squared a trio of bogey-5s, but still signed for his lowest aggregate since winning the Northern Trust Open in February. In fact, it's his lowest score since a second-round 65 at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am the week prior.

James Hahn is in the published field at this week's PLAYERS and enters the week ranked 25th in the FedExCup standings.

Hahn won the Northern Trust Open back in February and was unable to make his first WGC start at Doral due to the birth of his first child. The 33-year-old took four weeks off in total for the birth. He returned to miss cuts at the Valero Texas Open and the Masters and went T60 in his last start at the RBC Heritage. Hahn has opened with 2-under 70s in each of the last two PLAYERS but it hasn't translated into much success, missing the cut last year after a second-round 76 and a T62-finish in 2013.
May 6 - 11:09 AM

James Hahn will make his first start since the birth of his first child as he tees it up this week at the Valero Texas Open.

Hahn will also be making his first start since earning his breakthrough PGA TOUR win via playoff at the Northern Trust Open. He was on a six-start streak of cuts made prior to these major life changes, but a lot can change after a month without competitive golf. We recently saw Robert Streb take a noticeable dip in form after returning from the birth of his child, so gamers should take the wait-and-see approach with Hahn before jumping right back on the train.
Mar 24 - 12:33 PM

As suspected, James Hahn has decided not to compete in this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, according to's Will Gray on Twitter.

Gray alerted his followers by writing, "Tour officials confirmed that while @JamesHahnPGA got into Doral via top 10 in FedEx Cup standings, he is opting not to play." Hahn's wife is due with their first child next week. They live in the Bay Area, so it's hardly convenient to make a trip to Miami and take it one day at a time.
Mar 2 - 2:16 PM

James Hahn managed a 2-under-par 32-37=69 in the final round of the Northern Trust Open and survived a three-hole playoff to win his first PGA TOUR event at 6-under 278.

Hahn circled four birdies without a blemish on his first 11 holes, but could only muster five pars and two bogeys over his final seven holes of regulation. The highlight of his round was easily his 57'3" birdie from just off the green on the par-3 fourth hole. The amazing thing is that he hit just six of the 18 greens in regulation. He flipped a switch in the playoff, securing a par on the par-4 18th. He and Dustin Johnson each got up and down for a birdie on the par-4 10th -- the second playoff hole -- to oust Paul Casey and advance to the par-3 14th. It would be settled at the par-4 14th where Hahn converted a 23'6" birdie putt and DJ failed to match from 12'2". With this victory, Hahn is exempt into the Masters, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship.
Feb 22 - 6:21 PM

James Hahn battled for a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open and is one off the clubhouse lead at 4-under 209.

Hahn spread four birdies and two bogeys across Riviera Country Club in the third stanza of the tournament. Three of those birdies fell from longer than 12 feet, including a 48'8" bomb at the par-4 18th to end the day. Already in the midst of a solid 2014-15 campaign, his spirits could shoot through the roof with a breakthrough win in Sunday's final round.
