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. Aug 23 - 9:53 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.
May 7 - 5:23 PM

James Hahn patched together a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a 36-hole tally of 3-under 141, up five places to T12 with play still in progress.

Hahn hasn't cashed a paycheck since T17 at the Phoenix Open the first week of February, where he led outright after 36 holes but closed in 74-72. It's taken him awhile to get over it, chasing with eight consecutive missed cuts, but he's finally gotten the monkey off his back. The 34-year-old opened his fourth Wells Fargo with a five-birdie three-bogey 70, his best at Quail Hollow and only second in the red on 11 rounds. He circled five again today, but squared four, including back-to-backs on holes 17 and 18 to end on a sour note. Hahn managed 13 greens in regulation despite finding just four (of 14) fairways and posted 1.615 putts per GIR.
May 6 - 2:13 PM

Defending Northern Trust Open champion James Hahn took a step backwards in round two, signing for a 5-over-par 36-40=76 to end his bid at a repeat, missing the cut by five strokes.

Hahn opened the week with an even-par 71 and was still battling as he made the turn at 1-over 36. An errant tee shot into the trees at the par-4 10th started the decline. Hahn pitched out to the runoff area but was nowhere near the green. Needing to pitch over the bunker, he landed over the green and into the opposite bunker. From there he splashed on and two-putted for double, but the damage had been done. Feeling the pressure, Hahn added three more bogeys coming in before circling his lone birdie of the day, on the difficult par-4 18th, no less. The pressure of defending your first PGA TOUR title cannot go overlooked, and gamers should fire him back up when the TOUR returns to Riviera Country Club next year.
Feb 19 - 8:41 PM

James Hahn opened his Northern Trust Open title defense with an even-par 32-39=71, five shots off his pace from last year.

Hahn was slow out of the gates as he bogeyed the par-4 12th, par-5 17th, and par-4 18th on his outward nine. Making the turn at 3-over 39, the easiest hole on the golf course helped him turn things around, as he tapped in for birdie on the par-5 first hole. The highlight of his round was a 61'3" birdie bomb on the par-3 fourth. This is not the opener that Hahn was hoping for, but he did throw in a second-round 74 on his way to victory last year. A low round tomorrow would put him right back on track.

Defending champ James Hahn makes his first title defense at this week's Northern Trust Open at Riviera CC.

Hahn was a pre-tourney 200/1 (outright) when he prevailed in a three-man playoff here last year. In his third NTO appearance, he posted 66-74 before playing the weekend in 69-69, overcoming a four-stroke deficit in the final round. The 34-year-old dispatched Paul Casey first (after two holes of sudden death) and then eliminated Dustin Johnson with birdie-2 on the third playoff hole. It was his maiden TOUR title and it came in his 65th career start. In his last four full-field starts in 2016, Hahn is 3-for-4 with a best of T17 two weeks ago at the WM Phoenix Open, where he led by two thru 36 holes (67-65) but closed in 74-72. He missed the cut by three at last week's AT&T Pro-Am (74-72-72).

Overnight leader James Hahn back-pedaled to a 3-over-par 34-40=74 in today's third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a three-day tally of 7-under 206, down six places on the day and into a three-way T7.

Hahn began the day with a one-shot advantage over playing partners Rickie Fowler and Danny Lee. He ended it six strokes in arrears to 54-hole leader Lee. The one-time TOUR winner was cruising at 2-under on the day thru his first 11 holes, outpacing bogey-5 at three with birdies at Nos. 3, 4 and 10, and then the bottom fell out. The 34-year-old played holes 12-14 in bogey, double, double before exchanging birdie at the par-5 fifth with a failed scramble at the par-4 18th. He led the field in scrambling thru 36 holes, but went 2-for-7 in the third round.
Feb 6 - 7:06 PM

James Hahn hung a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 on TPC Scottsdale in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and at 10-under 132, is the 36-hole leader.

In his 65th career start, Hahn won his maiden (and only) TOUR title last February at the Northern Trust Open. At Riviera CC, he was T11 thru 36 holes (66-74), and closed in 69-69, eventually winning a three-man playoff. He's in the top spot after two days in Scottsdale, one better than overnight tri-leader Rickie Fowler and Danny Lee. The 34-year-old went off No. 10 tee and holed-out from 23 yards for birdie-3 to kick things off. He added a 32'2" bomb at the par-5 13th and a six-footer at the 15th for birdie-4. Hahn scrambled for pars on 16 and 17 to turn 3-under. He circled three after the break at 2, 3 and 6 (each from inside seven feet) to complete his scoring. The UC-Berkeley product missed five greens but saved par each time and ties Scott Piercy for low lap of the day.
Feb 5 - 8:00 PM

James Hahn caught fire late and wrapped day two at the Sony Open in Hawaii with a 5-under-par 33-32=65 to post 8-under 132, currently T5 on the leaderboard.

Last week's debut on Maui with his new PXG sticks could not have ended much worse for Hahn, sharing tied last in the winners-only event. With two more rounds now under his belt, he's settling in, reaching the Sony midpoint with a cumulative 5.107 in strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. Fifteen greens in regulation on day one regressed to just 13 today, but the flat stick saved him on Friday, recording a 2.590 at last check in strokes gained: putting. The 34-year-old was 1-under thru 13 holes today, outpacing two bogeys with three birdies, but ripped off four par breakers over his last five holes, two from between 10 and 12 feet. Earlier, he canned two from distance, including a 17-footer at the par-4 fifth, and a 29-foot-two-inch bomb at the par-4 third.
Jan 15 - 6:34 PM

James Hahn concluded his Hyundai Tournament of Champions debut with a 4-under-par 32-37=69 and a 72-hole tally of 3-over 295, tied last with J.J. Henry.

After recording just six birdies over his first three days and a 54-hole aggregate of 7-over 226, Hahn circled six on Sunday to offset a double bogey-6 at the par-4 12th. It was his third double of the week to go along with nine bogeys. Five of his six par breakers in the finale traveled less than 10 feet with a long of 17'5" at the par-4 third. The 34-year-old was one of three players on Maui to debut his new Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) equipment along with Zach Johnson and Chris Kirk. Perhaps they'll fare better for him next week at the Sony in Honolulu as he and Henry were the only two players to not finish under par for the week.
Jan 10 - 7:27 PM

James Hahn joins 13 other first-timers at this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Maui, Hawaii, and secured the invite with his maiden title at the Northern Trust Open in his 65th career start. UPDATE: In a Monday, Jan. 4th announcement, Hahn has switched clubs to Parsons Xtreme Golf.

The 34-year-old has posted just two top 10s in 19 events post-NTO but one went for solo sixth in his last start nine weeks ago at the 77-man no-cut CIMB Classic in Malaysia. He finished T2 in the CIMB field in fairways (45/56) and first in greens in regulation (64/72) en route to rounds of 70-65-64-68. The California resident is coming off a career-best 51st-place finish in the FedExCup race and has made the Playoffs in each of his first three seasons. He barely remained above water his first two campaigns with 27 made cuts against 26 missed cuts, but found his footing in 2014-15 going 19-for-28, although just two went for top 10s.
