Seed No. 56 James Hahn knocked off 25th seed Louis Oosthuizen 3-and-1 during round two of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, resetting the score in Group 8 as they all sit at 1-1-0 heading into Friday.
Oosthuizen entered the week with a stellar track record at this event (17-8-0) but Hahn was not concerned with that history. Making his debut at this event, Hahn lost his opening match to 2016 champ Jason Day but today he birdied the first, gave himself a 15'7" birdie look at the second and then snagged a bonus hole at No. 3 with a par. Hahn found himself 3-up thru 3 at that point and added four more birdies before his day was done. Oosthuizen picked up his pace from that point on but the 3-hole cushion was too much to overcome. Group 8 is now wide open with all four golfers entering day three with a 1-1-0 record. Hahn will now turn his attention toward Jason Dufner ahead of the third round. Mar 22 - 3:48 PM

World No. 83 James Hahn, a pre-tourney 100/1 outright, painted a week-low 8-under-par 32-30=62 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 17-under 263 (67-69-65-62), and then lost to Patton Kizzire on the sixth hole of a two-man playoff, dropping to 2-1 in sudden death. UPDATE: Hahn jumps 24 spots to 59th in OWGR and 110 places to 18th in the FedExCup standings.

Making his 140th career TOUR start, the 36-year-old was looking for his third title, first since winning the 2016 Wells Fargo in a playoff 43 starts ago. His final-round heroics (nine birdies, one bogey) erased a seven-shot deficit at the start of the day, and tied his career low on TOUR, shot two times previous. This was the Scottsdale, Arizona, resident's sixth cash in six Sony's but first top 25. It's also his first top 25 of the season in four starts and his first career runner-up. On 11 (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation, the UC-Berkely alum gained 6.171 strokes against the field, highlighted by seven birdies in an eight-hole stretch. In extra time, he missed his par-saver from 7'9" on the second playing of the par-3 17th, while Kizzire knocked in a par-saver from 2'4".

World No. 69 James Hahn is on Jeju Island, Korea, for the inaugural CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES. UPDATE: Hahn finished T40 on 5-over 293 (74-73-76-70).

The American, who was born in Seoul, South Korea, is coming off a 68th-place finish in the FedExCup standings last season, his sixth consecutive TOUR campaign. His best FEC finish was 39th the season prior, buoyed by his most recent of two TOUR titles 76 weeks at the 2016 Wells Fargo, prevailing in extra time. The 35-year-old posted career bests last season in top-25 finishes (eight) and top 10s (four), highlighted by solo 3rd at the Byron Nelson back in May. He was the 54-hole leader (by one) at the Byron Nelson but closed with 1-over 71. The UC-Berkeley alum opened this season with T28 at the CIMB (72-71-68-69).

Round two of the PGA Championship was delayed at 4:43 p.m. ET, due to dangerous weather in the area, with no current time set for play to resume. UPDATE: Play resumed at 6:26, a 1 hour and 43 delay.

With lightning hanging our nearby, the horn sounded to bring golfers (and fans) off the course, for safety reasons. James Hahn was one of the golfers still out on the course, playing good golf. He opened on the back nine and picked up birdies at 11 and 15 without dropping any shots along the way. Hahn had just struck his tee ball to 34'11" at the par-3 17th when the horn sounded. The weather cell is moving fast but not extremely large, which means we may be in for a delay on the shorter side of things. That should keep preserve some momentum for golfers like Hahn who are off to a fast start.

World No. 68 James Hahn is at Quail Hollow Club for the 99th PGA Championship and checks in at 57th in the FedExCup standings.

The 35-year-old is 1-for-2 at the PGA, cashing a T70 on 3-over 283 last year (67-73-70-73). Overall, it's his 10th major appearance with no prior top 25s and a best of T48 at the Masters back in April. Hahn posted a T74 (of 77) at The Open two starts ago (as an alternate), and chased with T10 at the RBC Canadian Open. He's 17-for-23 on the season with seven top 25s and four top 10s, including three in his last seven starts. The UC-Berkeley product's season best is solo 3rd at the Byron Nelson where he was the 54-hole leader. He won his second (of two) TOUR titles at Quail Hollow at the 2016 Wells Fargo, which is his only top 25 in five WFC's, four at Quail Hollow.

World No. 69 James Hahn awoke to fire a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude on 16-under 272, up 19 places to T8 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Hahn finished T10.

This was the 35-year-old's fourth appearance, second top 25, and might eclipse a previous-best T11 last year. It will a seventh top 25 of the season in 23 starts and possibly a fourth top 10, first since T6 at the Memorial four starts ago. After opening in 66-73-67, the UC-Berkeley alum began T27 on 10-under, four short of the overnight top 10. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.545 strokes off-the-tee but losing 1.008 approaching-the-green. The Scottsdale resident was even-par thru seven holes, trading birdies at Nos. 2 and 3 with bogeys at 4 and 7, but then played his final 11 in blemish-free 6-under. He circled 8 (from 22'0"), carded six straight pars, and then finished birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle, including a walk-off 3 from 12'1". Hahn posted a tidy 1.364 putts per GIR and 3.354 SG: Putting.

James Hahn was striping it tee-to-green en route to a 6-under-par 31-35=66 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, grabbing an early share of the clubhouse lead on Thursday.

Hahn opened his day on the back nine and gave himself plenty of scoring chances early, and often. On the day he gained 1.553 strokes off-the-tee and 3.305 strokes approach-to-the-green. That translated to 11 birdie looks from inside 13 feet on the day. Hahn would convert on seven of those chances to erase a long bogey. With a T11 already on his Glen Abbey Golf Club resume (2015), gamers shouldn't expect any kind of major regression as the week progresses.

James Hahn torched The Old White TPC to the tune of a 6-under-par 32-32=64 during round two of The Greenbrier Classic, matching the low round of the day so far (Jamie Lovemark) to reach 5-under 135 at the midpoint.

Hahn opened his week with a disappointing 1-over 71, but turned on all-out-attack mode in round two. Throughout the round he setup eight birdie looks from inside 10 feet, converting five of them while also adding two from the 14-to-18 foot range. In addition, he also holed out from 39'1" for birdie at the 17th. Hahn walked off the course gaining 2 or more strokes in each of the following strokes gained sub-categories: approach-the-green, around-the-green, and putting. This is the fourth round of 65 or better over his last 16 rounds played. It also sets a new personal best at The Old White TPC, previoulsy carding a 5-under 65 in R1 of the 2014 edition.

James Hahn pieced together a 3-under-par 35-32=67 during round one of the Quicken Loans National, staking out a share of eighth place after day one.

Hahn got started on the back nine this afternoon and fired out of the gate with birdies at 12 and 13 before driving the green at the par-4 14th and converting from 19'1" for eagle. He was one of just two golfers to eagle the 299-yard par 4 today. Hahn walked off the course gaining 1.298 strokes putting today but also missed four putts from inside 14 feet, so there was definitely a few more strokes to be gained today (if we're getting picky). With top 10s in two of his last three starts, Hahn is heating up just in time for the summer stretch.

World No. 73 James Hahn birdied his final two holes en route to a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Memorial Tournament for a 72-hole total of 8-under 280, up five places to T9 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Hahn finished in a three-way T6, five adrift of champion Jason Dufner.

This was the 35-year-old's third Memorial with a previous-best T52 on last visit in 2015. After opening in 74-72 and week-tying-low 65, he began T14 on 5-under, two shy of the overnight top 10. The UC-Berkeley alum had one blemish, a double bogey-6 at 14 (second shot in the water), overshadowed by five birdies at Nos. 2, 8, 12, 17 and 18, four from between nine and 16 feet. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 0.583 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 1.186 off-the-tee. The Scottsdale, Arizona, resident posted 1.500 putts per GIR and 4.133 SG: Putting, saving par two times from between nine and 11 feet. This is his fifth top 25 of the season in 19 starts and possibly a third top 10.

World No. 73 James Hahn painted a week-tying-low 7-under-par 32-33=65 on Moving Day at the Memorial Tournament to reach 5-under 211, up 52 places on the live leaderboard to T8 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Hahn is T14 and his 65 held up for the low round of the day.

This is the 35-year-old's third Memorial, missing the cut in 2013 and T52 in 2015. Today's lap was his ninth overall and first in the 60s, brushing aside a previous best by five shots. The UC-Berkeley product arrived off a missed cut at the DEAN & DELUCA and a season-best 3rd two weeks ago at the Byron Nelson where he was an 18-hole co-leader and 54-hole leader (by one). After opening in 74-72, he began T60 on 2-over, one inside the cut line and landed seven (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 4.152 strokes approaching-the-green. Hahn circled 10 birdies, five in a row on holes 3-7 and again at 11-15, taking some gloss off with bogeys at 2, 16 and 17, all on failed scrambles. His split featured eight conversions from inside of five feet, adding two from between 19 and 24 feet for 1.400 putts per GIR and 1.044 SG: Putting.

First-round co-leader and 54-hole leader James Hahn backed up with a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 11-under 269, down two places to solo 3rd, one stroke shy of a 2-man playoff involving playing competitors Billy Horschel and Jason Day.

This was the Seoul, South Korea, native's fourth Nelson, fourth cash and second top 10, supplanting a previous-best T5 on debut in 2014. It's his fourth top 25 of the season in 17 starts and first top 10. After opening in 64-70-64, rounds 1 and 3 bogey-free, he began with a 1-shot lead over Horschel, two clear of Day. The World No. 83 landed 10 (of 14) fairways but just eight greens in regulation, posting 2.254 SG: Tee-to-Green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 14.320. He played his first half in birdie-less 1-over, squaring bogey-4 at 2, but still co-led with Horschel and Day at the break. The 35-year-old broke the ice with back-to-backs birdies at 10 and 11, now leading by one, but then squared three straight at 12-14, including a 3-putt at 14 from 46'10". He was two back coming to the last and nearly holed his second to the par 4, lipping out a would-be eagle from 122 yards away to improbably join the playoff, settling for birdie from 45 inches.

First-round co-leader and World No. 83 James Hahn fashioned a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a three-day total of 12-under 198, up two places on the day and good for the 54-hole lead by one over Billy Horschel.

After opening in bogey-free 64, the 35-year-old co-led with Ricky Barnes, dipping to T3 with an even-par 70, six adrift of 36-hole leader Jason Kokrak. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, gaining 5.666 strokes tee-to-green, the leader in the latter with a cumulative 12.066. The UC-Berkeley alum circled five conventional at Nos. 7, 9, 10, 15 and 16, two of those 2-putt varieties and two from between 13 and 24 feet, kicking off with a slam-dunk pitch-in 3 at the par-4 third from 65'8" away. He posted a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and -0.476 SG: Putting, missing four scoring chances from inside 11 feet, seven from inside 14 feet. This is Hahn's second career 54-hole lead/co-lead in his 125th career event, joining the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach, where he finished T3 with 2-under 70.

Overnight co-leader James Hahn slowed his pace in round two of the AT&T Byron Nelson but still managed an even-par 34-36=70 to maintain a spot inside the top 5 on 6-under 134.

Hahn was dialed in on Thursday as he peppered 17 greens in regulation. Returning today, he landed just 12 GIR. Hahn started on the back nine and swallowed two bogeys without recording a birdie over his first 14 holes. From there, he converted an 11'2" birdie splash at the sixth and then sank a stress-free eagle from 4'8" at the par-5 seventh. Closing the day, he would have another good look (from 6'11") but burned the edge with his putt. That would be his third missed putt from inside seven feet, losing 0.718 strokes putting on the day. Staying true to his boom-or-bust nature at this course, he now has six rounds of 65 or better and eight rounds at par or worse.

James Hahn blitzed TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas en route to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 during round one of the AT&T Byron Nelson, claiming the early title of clubhouse leader with the afternoon wave just getting started.

Hahn put on a stripe-show today, splitting nine (of 14) fairways and landing 17 greens in regulation. It wasn't just the quantity of GIRs, he also splattered six approach shots inside 10 feet today, gaining 2.759 strokes approaching-the-green. In addition to the close-range birdies, he also converted a pair of birdie splashes from the 18-to-22 foot range as well as a 24'10" par saver at the 14th. If this lead holds by end of day, it will be his fourth career first-round lead/co-lead (most recently the 2016 Deutsche Bank). Hahn has a boom-or-bust history with this course as he's now recorded six rounds of 65 or better but the other seven rounds have all been par or worse. This does go in the books as his new personal best at TPC Four Seasons Resort.
