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. Jun 4 - 6:35 PM

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.
May 21 - 6:58 PM

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.
May 20 - 5:53 PM

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.
May 19 - 6:49 PM

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.

James Hahn hoisted the hardware after the 2016 Wells Fargo Championship hosted at Quail Hollow Golf Club, and will attempt to defend his title this week as the host track moves to Eagle Point Golf Club.

With Quail Hollow prepping for the PGA Championship, Hahn will have to attempt his title defense at another Tom Fazio design, Eagle Point Golf Club. Just like the usual host venue, this week's track is a lengthy par 72. The most spectacular part of Hahn's 2016 victory was the fact he arrived on the heels of eight straight missed cut. This time around his form is much better, earning paychecks in six of his last seven starts. Currently ranked outside the top 80 in all sub-categories of strokes gained, it would be a bit surprising to see him play his way back into the winner's circle this week.
May 1 - 7:01 PM

World No. 80 James Hahn preps for his second Masters Tournament and has a first-round tee time of 11:29AM (EDT) with 1991 champ Ian Woosnam and amateur Brad Dalke.

The 35-year-old has two TOUR titles in 120 career starts, both in extra time. The first, the 2015 Northern Trust Open, earned his first invite to ANGC seven weeks later, where he missed the cut (by one) after rounds of 73-74. The UC-Berkeley alum earned his second invite with his win at the 2016 Wells Fargo Championship, where he entered the week off eight consecutive missed cuts. Overall, this is his eighth major appearance with a T49 (2016 U.S. Open) his best among three cashes. The Scottsdale, Arizona, resident checks in at 79th in the FedExCup standings going 9-for-12 on the season with three top 25s and one top 10, a T9 at the no-cut CIMB Classic back in October.
Apr 5 - 2:19 PM

World No. 74 James Hahn back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 37-35=72 in the second round of the Valspar Championship to post 5-under 137, down four spots to T8 with play still in progress.

The 35-year-old conjured four (of 13) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 0.781 strokes approaching-the-green but losing strokes in all other categories, lowlighted by a -0.774 SG: Off-the-Tee. The UC-Berkeley alum overshadowed birdie-2s at holes 4 and 13, from 19'2" and 16'6", respectively, with bogeys at 1, 8 and 10, all failed scrambles. He posted 1.818 putts per GIR and took 30 swipes with the flat stick.
Mar 10 - 5:56 PM

James Hahn coasted to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of the Valspar Championship, finding himself three strokes off the early pacesetter Jim Herman.

Hahn was striking it well all day, splitting 11 (of 13) fairways en route to 14 greens in regulation. He let his flat stick go to town from there, splashing home three putts from outside 11 feet. That includes a 20'3" birdie roll at the par-4 12th. Hahn walked off the course gaining 3.056 strokes putting on the round. In eight previous rounds at the Copperhead Course, his best was a 2-under 69 so this will go in the books as his new low here at the Valspar.
Mar 9 - 2:19 PM

James Hahn hoisted the trophy at the 2015 Genesis Open and returns this week for another crack at Riviera Country Club.

Prior to his maiden win in 2015, Hahn arrived with five straight cuts made including a T29 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am the week prior. This time around he's 5-for-7 since a ninth-place finish at the CIMB Classic. While that's not quite as good, it's certainly better than the eight straight missed cuts ahead of his 2016 Wells Fargo Championship win. During the 2015 victory at Riviera CC, Hahn opened with a 5-under 66 to share the lead after day one. It wasn't wire-to-wire as he drifted to T11 after R2 and moved up to T7 after R3. Instead, it was a 2-under 69 in the finale that secured his spot in a playoff with Paul Casey and Dustin Johnson. Hahn missed the cut in his 2016 attempted title defense, but he should bring in a little extra confidence this week, knowing he can win on this classical layout.
Feb 13 - 6:34 PM

James Hahn heads to Maui for a second straight appearance at this week's SBS Tournament of Champions.

The late-bloomer finished T31 in his Kapalua debut last year, posting rounds of 76-76-74-69=295 on the week. On the bright side he finished strong with a 3-under 69 so perhaps he finally figured out the layout. However, he was the only golfer in the field with three over-par rounds on the week, leaving a lot of room for improvement. Hahn won another golden ticket back to Hawaii with his win at the Wells Fargo Championship. Everyone is in play this week for fantasy purposes given the field is just 32 golfers and there is no cut, but gamers should keep their expectations reasonable for Hahn, given his disappointing 2016 debut.
Jan 4 - 8:42 AM

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.

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.

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).
