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. Sep 15 - 11:26 PM

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.

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.

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.
Feb 21 - 5:10 PM

Overnight co-leader James Hahn signed for a 3-over-par 37-37=74 following his second round of the Northern Trust Open.

Hahn opened with an eagle from the fringe seven yards away at the par-5 first hole, but he'd go just 3-for-9 in scrambling with six bogeys. His only other par breaker found the cup at the testy par-4 10th of ll places. At 2-under 140, he's suddenly four shots in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Feb 20 - 8:31 PM

James Hahn lapped Riviera Country Club in 5-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open, and then signed his card with a share of the clubhouse lead.

Hahn is the fourth to post 66. His experience featured six birdies against just one bogey. His longest conventional conversion disappeared from 20-and-a-half feet at the par-4 15th, but he also holed out for birdie from the rough 11 yards away at the par-4 ninth to walk off with three consecutive birdies. At last check, the 33-year-old led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 5.825. He entered the week slotted 55th in the FedExCup standings.
Feb 19 - 4:18 PM

James Hahn signed for a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Hahn gathered five birdies and suffered just one bogey on his lap around TPC Scottsdale. Several of the birdies were worthy of applause, beginning with a chip in from 57 feet on the par-4 second hole. He added an 11'1" birdie on the par-3 fourth and closed out his action with a 23'4" birdie on the par-4 18th. Ball-striking was a bit of an issue, as he split just five of 14 fairways and found half of his GIR.
Jan 29 - 2:46 PM

James Hahn spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-30=64 in his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach the midpoint in 7-under 133.

As we reminded you earlier in the week, Hahn made news at Waialae Country Club last year with an albatross at the par-5 ninth hole in the second round. He's played that hole eagle-birdie thus far, but finds himself knocking on the door for history -- his first PGA TOUR victory. He's just only three strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Today's lap included six birdies, three from outside 11 feet. His longest measured 18'2" at the par-3 17th hole.
