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.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 16 - 5:11 PM

James Hahn has found relative success at Waialae Country Club and returns for a third look at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

Many gamers will recall his albatross at the ninth hole of last year's second round. Don't expect a repeat of that amazing shot, but another cut made is not out of the question, adding to his 2-for-2 record here. The tally of missed cuts are racking up quickly elsewhere, as Hahn is currently just 29-for-59 to start his PGA TOUR career.
Jan 14 - 8:00 PM

James Hahn has secured just two of his five cuts to kick off the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

His T17 at The McGladrey Classic was certainly nice, but the three missed cuts to go with a T56 in the no-cut CIMB Classic bring to light the story of his three-year PGA TOUR career; that is, Hahn is inconsistent. Don't be surprised if he gets off to a decent start early in 2015, as he hails from the West Coast and has played well in California and Arizona in the past.

James Hahn has been removed from the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

He competed in each of the first five weeks, capping off the travel with a missed cut in Mississippi. Hahn cashed twice, including a T17 at Seaside, so he's currently T90 in the FedExCup standings. He's fully exempt for finishing inside the top 125 in FedExCup points last season,

James Hahn shared 17th at The McGladrey Classic and hopes to build on that at this week's CIMB Classic.

Hahn missed the cut in each of his first two starts, so his T17 on Sea Island last week was a mild surprise. This will be his first look at Kuala Lumpur G&CC, so it is a bit of a guess as to how he will respond to the course. It's also a variable as to how he will adjust to the lengthy flight without the benefit of an off week. He has yet to break 70 in any of his three first rounds of 2014-15, but has posted rounds in the 60s in all five of his rounds after Thursday. Perhaps a guaranteed four rounds is exactly what he needs for a big finish this week.

James Hahn begins his 2014-15 campaign at the Open.

Hahn played his college golf for the University of California-Berkeley and has traditionally played well in events hosted on the west coast. In fact, the only two top fives of his PGA TOUR career came in California. The North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa is located in Napa, California, so expect Hahn to be licking his chops.

James Hahn will take his first peek at Ridgewood Country Club this week at The Barclays.

Hahn missed the cut last year in his 2013 Barclays debut, and gets to try it all again this week at a fresh venue. Form has been an issue, as he's finished outside the top 40 in 11 of his last 13 events. The pressure will be high for Hahn this week as he enters ranked 121st in the FedExCup standings in need of a high finish. With just three top 25s on the season, there are bushels of safer picks for gamers to pick from this week.

James Hahn makes his second trek to Sedgefield CC for the 2014 Wyndham Championship.

Hahn missed the cut in 2013, failing to break par in either round. At 121st in the FedExCup standings and ranking 115th on the PGA TOUR money list, he is on the right side of the bubble for 2014-15 status heading into the last event of the regular season. He needs to finish inside the top 125 on just one of those lists to keep his card. The only real drama surrounds his inclusion in the FedExCup Playoffs next week, needing to finish inside the top 125 in the FEC standings. If he can make the cut, it's hard to envision him falling to 126th or worse.
