James Hahn has been removed from the published field of this week's John Deere Classic.
At 105th in the FedExCup standings with seven events remaining in the regular season, Hahn would seem to be safe, but he'll need to tee it up again at some point just to lock it in for the Playoffs. He's cashed just 12 times in 23 starts, but recent top 10s (Nelson, St. Jude) provided the confidence boost that he has been lacking. Jul 7 - 11:42 AM

James Hahn opened The Greenbrier Classic with a 5-under-par 32-33=65 to establish the very early clubhouse lead.

He went out in the first threesome off the first tee and made an immediate presence on the leaderboard with a birdie conversion from 36'4" at the par-4 opening hole. He added five birdies, including respective rolls from 11'10", 33'4" and 17'8" at Nos. 9, 13 and 14 to off a bogey-6 at 12. At last check, Hahn's stroke gained-putting registered 2.631. He arrived at the tournament sitting 103rd in FedExCup points.

James Hahn turns his attention to The Old White TPC for The Greenbrier Classic this week.

Hahn tied for 41st in this event last season, which broke a streak of four consecutive missed cuts at the time. His form is considerably better this time around, having tied for sixth at the FedEx St. Jude Classic three starts prior. At 103rd in the FedExCup standings, he is in great shape to retain his PGA TOUR card and earn a spot in the Playoffs.

James Hahn navigated TPC Southwind in bogey-free 3-under-par 34-33=67 during the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to end his week at 7-under 273.

Considering he began his round on the back nine, it's a huge success that he ended his day one off the clubhouse lead and with a top 10 under his belt. The threesomes for the fourth round remained the same as the third, thus the rare top 10 from the opposite nine. He birdied both of the par 5s in Memphis, then added a 21'11" birdie on the par-3 eighth hole. He began his week 114th on the FedExCup standings and is now projected to move inside the top 100.

James Hahn has been added to the published field of this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Hahn was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. While he finished inside the top 10 at the Byron Nelson (T5), he gained entry into this week's stop in Texas due to two withdrawals. The Colonial is an invitational, so his top-10 exemption doesn't apply. Now 104th in the FedExCup standings, he's seeking redemption from missing the cut in his debut in Fort Worth a year ago.
May 19 - 11:10 AM

James Hahn signed for an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, finishing the week at 9-under 271.

Hahn entered the day just one off the leaders but never built any momentum on Sunday. It was a quiet day with just one putt falling from outside of five feet, which came from 12'3" for birdie at the par-4 third hole. Even with a mediocre finale, Hahn earned a T5 finish, his first top-15 finish of the season.
May 18 - 7:17 PM

James Hahn went streaking on his way to a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

There was nothing exciting about Hahn's round before he rattled off five consecutive birdies beginning at the 12th hole. The highlight of this stretch occurred on the par-3 13th when he rolled in a putt from 31'10". Hahn hasn't finished inside the top 10 since the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am but his current 9-under 201 puts him right in the thick of things.

James Hahn enjoyed a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

When you're arguably best known for a dance move, but you're a professional golfer, it's either a blessing or a curse. Unfortunately for the PGA TOUR sophomore, since he blasted out of the gates in 2013, he's gone 38 consecutive starts without a top-15 finish. He missed 22 cuts during the same stretch. Today's walk around Las Colinas was more like it, however. Hahn buried seven birdies, four of which from outside 10 feet, including an 11-yard hole-out from behind the green at the par-4 11th. His aggregate matches his low score of the season (third round, Northern Trust), and at 4-under 136, he's just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 16 - 1:11 PM

James Hahn begins the Zurich Classic of New Orleans ranked 119th in the current FedExCup standings.

This is his second stop at TPC Louisiana, missing the cut last year despite posting a respectable 2-under-par 71-71=142. Last season Hahn made just half of his 26 cuts, but scored four top 25s and a pair of top 10s. While he's making cuts at a higher percentage this time around (eight of 14), he has just one top 25 and no top 10s.
Apr 22 - 9:21 PM

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.
Mar 13 - 5:32 PM

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.
Feb 25 - 9:38 PM

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.
Jan 10 - 10:25 PM

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.
