James Hahn crafted a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach halftime on 10-under 132, up six places on the live leaderboard to T2, one shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Chris Kirk.
The 35-year-old, who celebrated his birthday on Nov. 2nd, improved to eight (of 14) fairways but dipped slightly to 13 greens in regulation. At the time he signed his card, he's firmly in positive territory across all strokes gained categories totaling 3.344. The UC-Berkeley alum squared a lone bogey-5 at the 12th (3-putt from 35'1"), but camouflaged it with six birdies, including four straight on holes 13-16. Nov 4 - 3:39 PM

James Hahn strung together a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during the opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Hahn found 14 greens in regulation today, despite splitting just six (of 14) fairways. That ball-striking was good enough to gain 2.937 strokes approaching-the-green. The rest of his game looked field-average today as he gained just 0.83 strokes in all three of the other sub-categories combined. Hahn entered the week with an 0-for-2 record at TPC Summerlin but it's looking like the third time may be the charm.
Nov 3 - 8:36 PM

James Hahn slowed but maintained forward momentum with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 36-33=69 during the third round of the CIMB Classic, arriving at the finale on 14-under 202, good for T4 on the leaderboard.

Hahn traded nine birdies with one bogey during round two, but really slowed his pace today. Despite finding three more fairways and landing the same amount of greens, Hahn found the bottom of the cup on just three par-breaking attempts. This is a classic example of a putter cooling off. On the bright side, Hahn has pelted 48 greens on the week, good for first in the field. He now finds himself five strokes off the pace entering round four. Picking up a third career victory may be a tough task, but he's in great position to secure his 10th career top 10 (110th start).

James Hahn put himself in position for a weekend title bid at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia after touring TPC Kuala Lumpur in 8-under-par 33-31=64 on Friday to arrive at 11-under 133 at the midpoint.

The American birdied all the even holes on the back nine to jump 13 spots on the leaderboard to T3, just three swings behind two-shot leader Justin Thomas. Prior to that he'd scribbled front-nine birdies at 1, 3, 5 and 8 against a lone bogey of the day at 2. Hahn appears to have a real liking for this event and today's 64 matched the 8-under lap he produced in round three last year. That helped him finish T6. As in round one, the Wells Fargo winner split 8 (of 14) fairways and found 16 greens in regulation. No-one has made more than his 16 birdies through the first 36 holes while he leads the field in GIR.

World No. 61 James Hahn readies for his third straight Safeway Open at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, California.

The 34-year-old added his second TOUR title in as many seasons last year at the Wells Fargo, improving to 2-0 in sudden death. He only managed three top 10s overall in 26 events, but carved out a career-best 39th-place finish in the FedExCup standings in his fourth season. Beside the win, the UC-Berkeley alum also posted a T5 at the Deutsche Bank -- where he was a first-round co-leader -- before bowing out of the Playoffs with a T24 at the BMW Championship. Hahn won his first TOUR title at the 2015 Northern Trust at Riviera, so he's proven that he can win on both coasts. He's 1-for-2 at Silverado cashing a T41 last year on rounds of 74-66-68-74.

First-round co-leader James Hahn concluded his second Deutsche Bank Championship with a 2-under-par 33-36=69 and a four-day total of 10-under 274, up six places to T5 with play still in progress.

The 34-year-old began the final frame in a nine-way logjam on 8-under (T11), one shy of the overnight top 10. He ended with a thud, playing his final eight holes in a birdie-less 2-over, but earlier, outpaced bogey-4 at the third with birdies on Nos. 1, 2, 6, 8 and 10. The Cal-Berkeley alum played rounds 1 and 3 in bogey-free 11-under, and rounds 2 and 4 in 1-over. For the week, he totaled 18 birdies against six bogeys and a double. It's his third top 10 of the season in 25 starts, first since his playoff win at the Wells Fargo. Hahn is projecting to climb 16 places to 39th in the FedExCup standings.
Sep 5 - 1:45 PM

First-round co-leader James Hahn authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-32=66 in today's third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 8-under 205, up 37 places to T9 with play still in progress.

This is Hahn's second bogey-free lap of the week, joining a first-round 65 that netted him a share of the top spot with Ryan Moore. Following a second-round 74, he began the third frame on 3-under (T47) and landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 3.411 SG: Tee-to-Green and 2.715 SG: Approach-the-Green. The Cal-Berkeley alum circled five birdies, four from inside of 10 feet with a long of 24'6" at the par-3 11th. He posted 1.643 putts per GIR after a dismal 2.000 in R2.
Sep 4 - 3:22 PM

Overnight co-leader James Hahn backed up with a 3-over-par 38-36=74 in today's second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 3-under 139, down 30 places to T31 with play still in progress.

The 34-year-old co-led after an opening bogey-free 65. It was just the second time this season in 25 events that he's led/co-led after ANY round. The other occasion, he led after the final round at the Wells Fargo in May, which after all, is the only time it really counts. Hahn couldn't reproduce the magic in Round 2, recording just two birdies against three bogeys and a double bogey-5 at the 16th. He hit 14 greens in regulation, but suffered through a -3.009 in SG: Putting, 3-putting three times, and a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR.
Sep 3 - 1:46 PM

James Hahn torched TPC Boston en route to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 during the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, staking claim of the clubhouse lead on day one.

Hahn kicked off his week at the par-4 10th by saving par from 11'10" and backed it up with a 7'7" par-saver at the 11th. He settled in after that, holing 10 more pars throughout the round, all from inside four feet. He didn't slow down with the flat stick, though, splashing in five birdie putts from outside six feet in addition to a tap-in at the par-4 fourth. The scoring was all set up off the tee, striping all 14 fairways on his way to 15 greens in regulation. Hahn posted 77-70 in his 2015 DBC debut, but is off to a much better start the second time around.

James Hahn will get his first competitive look at Bethpage State Park's Black Course as he preps for this week's Barclays.

Hahn is making his fourth straight appearance in the FedExCup Playoffs, with last year being the first time making it past the first leg. This year he enters the week ranked 44th in the FEC standings in large part due to the victory at the Wells Fargo Championship which earned him 500 of his current 878 FEC Points. The 34-year-old missed eighth straight cuts prior to his win at Quail Hollow and hasn't found a top 40 in eighth starts since.

James Hahn kicked off the 98th PGA Championship with a 3-under-par 33-34=67, currently two off the early pace set by Jimmy Walker.

Hahn was magnificent, tee-to-green, striping nine (of 14) fairways and landing 16 greens. With that many scoring chances, he was able to convert through quantity over quality. On the day, he circled five birdies and gave back a pair of strokes with two bogeys. The highlight of the round came early with a 34'10" birdie bomb at the par-4 fifth hole. Hahn missed the cut last year in his PGA Championship debut, but Baltusrol Golf Club appears to be a better fit thus far.
Jul 28 - 1:18 PM

James Hahn missed the cut in his 2015 PGA Championship debut and now sets his eyes on Baltusrol Golf Club for the 98th edition.

Hahn vaulted up the FedExCup standings with his victory at the Wells Fargo Championship, jumping from 120th to 26th place. Since then he's finished outside the top 40 in six straight starts and now finds himself 38th in the FEC race. On the season he ranks 114th in strokes gained tee-to-green and 167th in strokes gained putting. Given the statistical profile, he's a long shot to contend this week, but he also won the Wells Fargo Championship on the heels of eight straight missed cuts so anything is possible.

James Hahn rebounded from a slow start to sign for a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson.

Hahn looked sloppy early in his round, missing a six-foot birdie attempt at the par-4 first and a 3'5" par-saving attempt at the par-4 third hole. He added to the damage on the following hole as he found trouble in the fairway bunker and dropped a second shot. The comeback began on the par-5 seventh hole where he landed his second shot in the fringe, just 12'9" from the hole and rolled it in for an eagle. That proved to be a pivotal momentum swing as he circled five birdies from that point on, including a 49'9" bomb on the par-3 17th hole. At 5-under 65, Hahn is just two strokes off the early pace set by Sergio Garcia.
May 19 - 4:47 PM

With a par on the first hole of sudden death, James Hahn won the Wells Fargo Championship in a two-man playoff over Roberto Castro for his second PGA TOUR title in his 97th career start.

The duo matched 72-hole aggregates of 9-under 279, with Hahn bogeying the par-5 18th but posting first out of the penultimate twosome, and Castro came a group later with a par from 6'1". They went back to the 18th with Castro going first and pulling his tee shot into the water. He eventually got up-and-down for bogey-5, but Hahn won it with a semi-routine two-putt par. Both of Hahn's victories have come in playoffs and both have been come-from-behind, having also won the 2015 Northern Trust in a three-man three-hole playoff after erasing a four-shot deficit. This week, he entered the finale two shy of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler and circled three birdies and an eagle-3 to offset three bogeys. The 34-year-old had missed eight straight cuts heading into his fourth WFC where his previous best was T50 on debut in 2013.
May 8 - 6:32 PM

James Hahn painted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 on Moving Day at the Wells Fargo Championship to post 7-under 209, up 10 places on the live leaderboard to T3, and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Hahn is in a two-way T3, two back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler, who also shot 68.

Two players posted 3-under 69s earlier, the only two laps in the 60s for the entire day; that is, until Hahn crashed the party with a six-birdie two-bogey gem. He briefly touched the co-lead on 8-under total after his third straight birdie at the 16th, but retreated one with a failed scramble (using the flat stick from the fringe) at the par-3 17th. Elsewhere, the 34-year-old circled the third, eighth and 10th to overshadow a bogey on the 12th, also a failed scramble. Thru 54 holes, he's currently T1 in total birdies with 16, with today's split featuring a 31-footer at the par-4 third and a pitch-in from 35'7" away for birdie-3 at 14.
