American Chesson Hadley turns his attention to the 97th PGA Championship in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and is in the first group off the first tee on Thursday (6:45 a.m CT) with South Africa's Rory Sabbatini and club professional Ryan Helminen of Appleton, Wisconsin.
Hadley has made two prior appearances in major championships. He missed the cut by five strokes in last year's PGA at Valhalla (par 71) on rounds of 74-73, and also missed the cut by five in the 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. Hadley is exempt on TOUR thru 2015-16 via his win at the 2014 Puerto Rico Open, his lone title in 57 career starts. This season, he's cashed 18 times on 26 starts, with eight top 25s, three for top 10s. His last top-10 finish came 10 starts ago at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans (T8). The 28-year-old enters the week 78th in the FedExCup standings. Aug 11 - 9:20 PM

Chesson Hadley authored a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the RBC Canadian Open.

Hadley has grinded through a respectable sophomore season that has yielded three top 10s and another five top 25s, but it's been two months since he's cracked a top 35. However, at 72nd in the FedExCup standings, he's all but assured of going at least two events deep into the Playoffs. But thus far as Glen Abbey, he's shown the kind of form that could propel the 28-year-old even further. Hadley connected for six birdies, including on all four par 5s. Three of his conversions ranged 10-12 feet. He suffered only one bogey and came to rest three swings in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Chesson Hadley enters his first John Deere Classic 68th in the FedExCup standings.

Hadley, who celebrated his birthday on July 5th, is 15-for-22 in his second season on the PGA TOUR with eight top 25s. His last was a T24 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational finishing up a streak of four consecutive T25-finishes or better, including a T8 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to begin the run. His T49 at the Memorial snapped the streak and he missed the cut in his last start at the FedEx St. Jude Classic (by nine shots) on rounds of 75-75. The 28-year-old owns a season-best T4 at the Valero Texas Open, and a T10 at the AT&T Pebble Beach joins the Zurich Classic mentioned above for his three top 10s on the season. Hadley's one win on TOUR (in 53 career starts), came at the 2014 Puerto Rico Open.

Chesson Hadley contests his second FedEx St. Jude Classic this week at TPC Southwind.

Hadley has an average finish of T13 at the St. Jude. Of course, that's inclusive of just one prior start, his T13 in last year's debut, where he book-ended rounds of 69-72 with 3-under-par 67s in rounds one and four. The 27-year-old is 61st in the FedExCup standings going 15-for-21 on the season, including eight for top 25s. He finished T49 at last week's Memorial, breaking a streak of four straight top-25 finishes, highlighted by a T8 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, his third top 10 on the season. If Hadley is looking to repeat his top-15 showing at the SJC, he'll have to score better on the par 4s at this week's par-70 layout. He enters the week ranked 118th in par-4 scoring (4.06) thus far on the season.
Jun 10 - 12:05 PM

After opening the Wells Fargo Championship with a 5-under 67, Chesson Hadley blew up for a 5-over-par 37-40=77 to post even-par 144 and make the cut on the number.

Despite his, um, worst efforts, Hadley will play the weekend at Quail Hollow Club. He piped only five (of 14) fairways and hit nine greens in regulation today. His card features two birdies and squares around three bogeys and a pair of double bogey-5s. He's one of 12 golfers at T70, so a second cut of low 70 and ties will fall after 54 holes are in the books.
May 15 - 7:36 PM

Chesson Hadley spun a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

With top 25s in his last two starts, the 2013-14 Rookie of the Year continues to rebuke all notions of a sophomore slump. He's 64th in the FedExCup standings and well on his way to qualify for the Playoffs. Today at Quail Hollow, he hit just 12 greens in regulation but collected seven birdies to hide a pair of bogeys. Hadley's longest birdies measured 27'1" and 11'9" at Nos. 1 and 4, respectively, but he also poured in a par save from 19'5" at the par-4 16th. At last check, he ranked inside the top 15 in both strokes-gained stats and sat two strokes off the clubhouse lead.
May 14 - 6:03 PM

Chesson Hadley crafted a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's third round at THE PLAYERS and reached the three-quarter pole at 7-under 209.

Hadley found just six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation but he made the most of the opportunities he had by circling seven birdies. The 27-year-old's set included six birdie putts (all from inside of 10 feet) and one chip-in on the par-3 eighth from the left fairway six yards short of the hole. He went on to add four additional par breakers on Nos. 10, 11, 16 and 17 propelling him well up the leaderboard. On the round, Hadley went 6-for-7 in scrambles, dropping his only shot on the par-4 14th after failing to get up-and-down from a green-side bunker.
May 9 - 4:13 PM

Chesson Hadley authored a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and posted 17-under 271 to finish in a four-way tie for eighth.

Hadley started his final round at 11-under (T20) and five shots off the pace. On the round he split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to a seven birdie, one bogey round. The 27-year-old's split ranged from 3'2" to a long of 16'1" on the par-3 17th. On a day with premium scoring conditions, he may have started too far back to contend, but his loop was good enough to bump him 12 spots and register his third top 10 on the season.
Apr 26 - 8:27 PM

Chesson Hadley carded a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, finishing three strokes back of the overnight co-leaders.

He missed only two greens in regulation and dropped five birdies at TPC Louisiana today. His only notable conversion measured 15'2" for birdie at the par-5 18th, Hadley's ninth of the round. This mark's the 2014 Rookie of the Year's debut in the tournament. It was just four weeks ago that he registered a season-best T4 at the Valero Texas Open. The 27-year-old is 77th in the FedExCup standings.
Apr 23 - 7:54 PM

Chesson Hadley carded a 1-under-par 26-35=71 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to tie for fourth place at 3-under 285.

Of his four birdies at TPC San Antonio, his 19'3" effort at the par-5 eighth was easily the highlight. Hadley squared a double bogey and a bogey, which prevented him from going even higher up the leaderboard. He ranked inside the top five in both putting average and strokes gained: putting. He has the reputation for snapping his fingers when he makes a big putt, and with stats like that here were plenty of snaps this week.
Mar 29 - 5:43 PM

Chesson Hadley signed for a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open to join the clubhouse lead at 2-under214.

Snaps for that, as Hadley should enter the final round inside of the top five. He circled six birdies, but succumbed to three bogeys and a double bogey. Two of his birdies fell from longer than 10 feet, with a 26'4" birdie at the par-3 13th the highlight. He gained well over two strokes from tee-to-green and barely broke even with the flat stick. He will try and capture his second PGA TOUR win on Sunday.
Mar 28 - 5:20 PM

Chesson Hadley looped TPC San Antonio in even-par 34-38=72 in today's second round of the Valero Texas Open and reached the midpoint in 1-under 143, five strokes in arrears of the 36-hole lead.

Hadley hit 13 greens in regulation and poured in five birdies, including respective gems from 28'6" and 26'7" at the second and 15th holes. He also squared a pair of bogey-5s where he missed the GIR at Nos. 1 and 17. But the crookedest number was an 8 at the par-5 14th where he skulled his fourth out of bounds and eventually two-putted. Hadley's 14th club has been the savior, though. At last check, he ranked second in the field in strokes gained: putting with an aggregate clip of 5.785.
Mar 27 - 7:17 PM

Chesson Hadley signed for a 1-under-par 36-35=71 following his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

The 2013-14 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year is quietly going about his sophomore season pretty much as expected. He's 8-for-13 with one top 10 and another pair of top 25s and sits 109th in the FedExCup standings. Today at TPC San Antonio, he went 5-for-10 in scoring chances with five birdies, the longest falling in from 14'3" at the par-4 17th hole. He also poured in a par save from 16-and-a-half feet at the par-4 third. Alas, he couldn't avoid two bogeys and a double, but the overall effort will do just fine on a day when red numbers were hard to find. Hadley sits four strokes off the overnight lead.
Mar 26 - 8:35 PM

Chesson Hadley wrapped up his title defense of the Puerto Rico Open with a 5-under-par 33-34=67.

It was his first sub-70 of the week. He posted 4-under 284, which has him just inside the top 10 overall and with sole possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead. Hadley split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation during his final trot around Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. With five birdies against two bogeys, he sat 3-under through 17 before walking off with an eagle-3 at the last. The PGA TOUR sophomore will now take his talent to the Valspar Championship where he tied for 14th the week after his breakthrough in Puerto Rico a year ago.
Mar 8 - 1:18 PM

Chesson Hadley answered his opening 71 at the Puerto Rico Open with a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in his second round to post 3-under 141 at the break, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The defending champ bogeyed the first two par 3s today and sat 2-over through seven, but he finished in style. Hadley birdied four of his last 11, including the par-4 seventh and ninth holes to join Jonathan Byrd atop the leaderboard. This tournament is only in its eighth edition, but it's already seen a two-time winner in Michael Bradley (2009, 2011), so don't rule out a back-to-back version from the lanky 27-year-old.
