James Hahn reached the halfway point of the Valero Texas Open in 3-under-par 71-70=141.
He oscillated outside the top 10 after posting hours ago, but has since floated back in. The wind picked up midday, so the late-early draw benefited. Hahn has traded six birdies with three bogeys and parked it five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. His only notable birdie today measured 23'6" at the par-3 third hole. He chased it with a par conversion from 13'1" at 4. Mar 28 - 7:17 PM

James Hahn carded a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship.

It's been a rough go for Hahn this season, but you could extend that description back a full 12 months and not be wrong. He arrived at Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club ranked 146th in FedExCup points with just four paydays in 10 starts and zero top 25s. He split 11 (of 13) fairways today but hit just 10 greens in regulation. Oddly enough, he went 9-for-10 in scrambling, but added a three-putt bogey from just outside 45 feet at the par-4 third hole. Elsewhere he picked off four birdies, including rolls from 11'3" and 18'7" at Nos. 5 and 9, respectively. Hahn signed his card sitting only one strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

James Hahn travels back to PGA National for his second Honda Classic.

The sophomore was in much better form the last time he took on this event, but still missed the cut. That doesn't bode will for this time around. He's a west-coast guy, so it seems somewhat plausible that the Florida swing could prove uncomfortable both geographically and in course style.

James Hahn achieved the rarest of par breakers in his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii when he holed his second shot at the par-5 ninth hole for an albatross.

Hahn struck his ball from a lie in the fairway 193 yards from the cup. He would go on to sign for a 2-under-par 31-37=68 and reach the midpoint in 5-under 135, five back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but it isn't every day that anyone, much less a professional golfer, can pencil in a 2 on a par 5. In fact, since 2009, this is just the 20th albatross on the PGA TOUR. For the sake of comparison, there were 30 holes-in-one in the shortened season of 2013 alone. What's staggering is that it's his second albatross in TOUR-sanctioned competition. He converted his first on the 18th hole of El Bosque Golf Club in the first round of the 2011 México Open on the Tour. Alas, he shot a 1-over 73, backed it up with a 74 and missed the cut.

James Hahn posted a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

It remains to be seen if he just loves himself the West Coast or if he can translate the success he enjoyed a year ago come March and thereafter. Hahn hadn't signed for an aggregate this low in a first round since the Northern Trust Open in mid-February of 2013. He hit 12 greens at Waialae today and rolled in six birdies, including on each of the two par 5s. His longest conversions dropped in from 31'2" and 13'6" at the par-4 14th and second holes, respectively. He walked off with a share of the early clubhouse lead, but currently sits one back of a trio of co-leaders.
Jan 9 - 5:08 PM

James Hahn returns for a second season on the PGA TOUR due in large part to the work he did on the 2013 West Coast Swing.

During that run, Hahn tied for fourth at the Humana Challenge, danced his way to a share of 16th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and tied for third at Pebble Beach. His only other top 25 came in the form of a T23 at the Reno-Tahoe Open. As a resident of California, perhaps it shouldn't come as a big surprise that essentially all of his success came west of the Rockies.

James Hahn signed for a 1-over-par 37-35=72 following his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Hahn's last-minute withdrawal before last week's Open was due to food poisoning, but he may not be feeling any better after today's round anyway. He stood over 15 opportunities to break par and did so three times, but went 0-for-3 in scrambling and added a three-putt bogey from just outside 75 feet at the par-5 16th hole. Overall, he whiffed on two tries inside 10 feet. He's a likable, young touring pro, but he's failed to regain form since the conclusion of the West Coast Swing during the 2013 season.

James Hahn has been removed from the published field of this week's Open.

After concluding the 2013 season with a missed cut at The Barclays to finish 110th in FedExCup, you'd think that he'd be chomping at the bit to start anew at CordeValle. He's offered nothing on Twitter as to why he pulled out, but we'll keep you posted if an explanation is released in any fashion.

James Hahn limps into The Barclays at 101st in the FedExCup standings.

His best run of the season came during the West Coast Swing. Interestingly enough, one of his best recent finish was a T40 at the RBC Canadian Open on poa annua greens similar to those in many of the California venues. He needs a modest showing at Liberty National to move on.

James Hahn posted a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open, moving to 10-under 206.

Hahn's round featured four birdies to just one bogey. With his play spotty since the West Coast Swing, his ability to remain on the leaderboard at Glen Abbey is a needed boost of confidence. At 100th in the FedExCup standings when the week began, he was already a lock to keep his card for a sophomore season but not highly thought of in terms of a run in the FedExCup Playoffs. That will be up for review if he can finish off a top 10 tomorrow.

James Hahn is 7-under-par 69-68=137 through two rounds of the RBC Canadian Open, six swings off the 36-hole lead.

If you're thinking that there's some synergy between Hahn's sudden good play this week and the fact that Glen Abbey's green are primarily Poa annua, by no means is that a reach. He did all of his heavy lifting on the West Coast Swing before essentially disappearing for over five months. His "Gangnam Style" dance at TPC Scottsdale seems like ages ago, but that kind of perspective often develops as rookies endure the learning curve. Hahn has landed 23 greens at Glen Abbey and limited the damage to two bogeys and a double. He buried five birdies today, but his only notable conversion was a par save measuring 23'4" at 11.

James Hahn will try and tame TPC Deere Run for the first time at this week’s John Deere Classic.

The rookie has continued to be spotty since a nice West Coast Swing early in the year. His most recent finish was a T41 at The Greenbrier Classic last week, but that was needed to stop a skid of four missed cuts. At 88th in the FedExCup standings, his 2013-14 TOUR card appears safe.

James Hahn is set for his first Memorial at Muirfield Village this week.

While the rookie’s made two of his last three cuts, you have to go all the way back to Pebble Beach to find anything inside the top 35. At 66th in the current FedExCup standings he’s still in excellent shape to retain his PGA TOUR card for 2013-14.

James Hahn turns his attention to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans after sharing 35th at the RBC Heritage last week.

Since he tie for third at Pebble Beach, Hahn had gone seven starts without a top-55 finish. While a T35 at Harbour Town last week wasn't exactly stopping the presses, it should be enough to snap him out of his recent slump. At 18th in Par 5 Birdie of Better Leaders, he could have the perfect makeup to tackle TPC Louisiana.

James Hahn signed for an 8-over-par 38-41=79 following his opening round of the Tampa Bay Championship.

Every rookie goes through the ringer at some point. Hahn is cemented in it now. After a wondrous West Coast Swing, he's missed two cuts in as many starts since and hasn't broken 70 in his last eight rounds. He hit 10 greens in regulation in his first career competitive round at Copperhead and came away empty, converting zero birdies. He fanned on four putts inside 10 feet, one of which during a three-putt from just 11'4" at the par-4 seventh hole. Epitomizing the kind of day it was, his longest conversion was a bogey putt measuring 12'10" at the par-3 17th hole.
