Two-time Tour grad and World No. 127 Chesson Hadley patched together a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the final round of the Safeway Open, dropping one spot into a two-way T3 on 12-under 276, three short of back-to-back champion Brendan Steele.
After opening in 72, course-record and career-low 61, and 70, the 30-year-old began in solo 2nd, one shy of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Tyler Duncan. Playing out of the final threesome, he landed seven (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 1.109 strokes off-the-tee and 0.395 approaching-the-green, but gained 1.103 around-the-green. The Georgia Tech alum carded three birdies at Nos. 9, 16 and 17, all from inside of seven feet, outbalanced by two bogey-5s at 8 and 10 (3-putt from 38'8"), and double bogey-6 at 12 after hitting his tee ball OB. He posted 1.800 putts per GIR, No. 1 in that stat for the week (1.583), 1.094 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. The North Carolinian, No. 1 in the WCT Priority Rankings, was chasing his second TOUR title in 97 career starts but settles for his second career top-3 finish. Oct 8 - 9:41 PM

World No. 127 Chesson Hadley carved out a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in the third round of the Safeway Open to reach 13-under 203, up one place to solo 2nd, one shy of 54-hole leader and fellow Tour grad Tyler Duncan.

The 30-year-old, playing his fourth TOUR season, is vying for his second TOUR title in his 97th career start. He won the 2014 Puerto Rico Open during his rookie campaign as 54-hole leader. After opening in 72 and a course-record career-low 61, the North Carolinian began in solo 3rd, two back of Duncan. Playing out of the final threesome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing strokes off-the-tee and around-the-green, but gaining 0.924 approaching-the-green. The Georgia Tech alum squared four bogeys at Nos. 2, 3, 7 and 15 (failed scrambles), outbalanced by six birdies at 4, 9-11, 16 and 18, two from between 10 and 27 feet. He recorded 1.455 putts per GIR, No. 1 in that stat thru 54 holes (1.526), -0.003 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.
Oct 7 - 9:26 PM

Chesson Hadley bombarded the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa with birdies en route to an 11-under-par 30-31=61 during round two of the Safeway Open, posting his career-low round on the PGA TOUR while positioning himself one off the 36-hole lead on 11-under 133.

Hadley could do no wrong today as he gave himself 12 scoring chances inside 16 feet, converting on nine of them. On top of that, he also drained a 21'9" eagle splash at the 9th and a 28'6" birdie bomb at the 14th. Today's round matches the tournament record but eclipses the course record (62, Scott Piercy). This also goes in the books, easily, as a new personal best for Hadley, previously posting rounds of 64 on two occasions. At the midpoint, he sits inside the top 20 in all four sub-categories of strokes gained with putting being the biggest weapon (+3.441 SG Putting, ranked 8th in the field). After the round, he cited a personal round where he fired a 60 but that was only 10-under so this is his best score relative-to-par, ever.
Oct 6 - 8:39 PM

Sponsor invite and World No. 226 Chesson Hadley contests his sixth consecutive Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, NC., and checks in at 210th in the FedExCup standings.

The Raleigh, NC., native and resident missed four straight cuts at the par-70 Sedgefield CC before T57 last year on 5-under 275 (68-69-68-70). This is his eighth start of the season on the main circuit (Past Champion status) and has made three cuts with one top 25, a T25 at the John Deere as an alternate three starts ago. The 30-year-old won his third Tour title in 40 career events two starts ago and followed up with solo 3rd last week. He ranks 2nd on the WCT Money List so he'll be back on the PGA TOUR full-time next season.
Aug 16 - 6:24 PM

Alternate and World No. 281 Chesson Hadley tossed up a career-tying-low bogey-free 7-under-par 31-33=64 in the second round of the John Deere Classic to post 9-under 133, up 36 places on the live leaderboard to T1, good for the low round in the clubhouse and the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Hadley is T5, four back of 36-hole leader Patrick Rodgers, while Kevin Tway had the low round with 63.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 30-year-old striped 12 (of 14) fairways and peppered 17 greens in regulation, gaining 1.726 strokes off-the-tee and 1.263 approaching-the-green. He carded seven birdies at Nos. 10, 14, 17, 2, 5, 7 and 8, three from between 12 and 14 feet, adding a long of 24'10" at the par-4 eighth. The Georgia Tech alum posted 1.647 putts per GIR and 3.287 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts. This was his 281st career round on TOUR and matches a career-low 64 at the 2015 AT&T Pebble Beach/R1. The North Carolinian checked in off his third Tour title last week, which regains his card on the main circuit next season.
Jul 14 - 1:49 PM

Chesson Hadley is riding a wave of momentum ahead of his appointment at this week's John Deere Classic.

Hadley is just 1-for-2 this season as he's been focusing on the circuit. That focus paid off as he just pieced together four sub-70 rounds at the LECOM Health Challenge to secure a victory. That victory locks up his TOUR card for the 2017-18 season, perhaps unlocking a free-swinging version of himself for the remainder of the year. Gamers should give Hadley a long look this week if they need a deep sleeper.
Jul 11 - 9:35 AM

Past champion Chesson Hadley settled for a 2-over-par 37-37=74 in round three of the Puerto Rico Open to give him a three-day tally of 2-under 214, making him one (of 10) golfers to miss out on the secondary cut this week.

The 2014 Puerto Rico Open champion started the week with rounds of 69-71=140. He failed to find his approach game today, finding just nine greens in regulation, despite preferred lies being in effect. Playing on conditional status, he's struggled to find many starts recently as this week was just his third of the 2016-17 season. Other golfers who made the 36-hole cut but will not have a fourth-round tee time include: 213- Cyril Bouniol, Richy Werenski, Greg Owen, Tag Ridings; 214- Jonas Blixt, Tyrone van Aswegen, Jonathan Byrd; 215- Fabrizio Zanotti, Joel Dahmen
Mar 25 - 7:03 PM

Past champ and World No. 519 Chesson Hadley arrives at Coco Beach Golf & CC for his fourth Puerto Rico Open.

Playing this season on Past Champion status, the 29-year-old is making his first start of the calendar year and third overall. He's 1-for-2 with a T45 at The RSM Classic back in November, where he was solo 5th thru 54 holes (65-66-67), closing in 7-over 77. The North Carolina native and resident's lone TOUR title (in 90 career events) came on debut here in 2014 as a TOUR rookie in his 13th career start. He won that as 54-hole leader in a tournament record 21-under 267 (68-65-67-67), and chased with T16/2015 and a missed cut last year (by one) on rounds of 69-75.
Mar 22 - 4:43 PM

Playing this season on Past Champion status, Chesson Hadley carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to post 14-under 198, down two places to solo fifth, two back of 54-hole leader Mackenzie Hughes.

After beginning his fourth appearance in 65-66, the 29-year-old began the third round in a four-way T3 on 11-under, three back of Hughes. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he digressed to seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, circling four birdies against a lone bogey-5 at the fourth on a failed up-and-down. The Georgia Tech alum (2010) dropped two birdies from between 15 and 17 feet and also canned a 47-foot par-saver on the par-4 10th.

Playing the Plantation Course, Chesson Hadley spun a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of The RSM Classic to post 11-under 131, up 20 places to T3, three shy of 36-hole leader Mackenzie Hughes.

The 29-year-old, playing this season on Past Champion status, is making just his second start of 2016-17 after a missed cut three weeks ago at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms. This is his fourth consecutive RSM, cashing a T32 in 2015 (66-70-70-68) and missing the cut last year and on debut in 2014. The Georgia Tech alum opened with a seven-birdie two-bogey 65 (Seaside Course) and circled NINE in R2 on 13 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, recording a stellar 1.429 putts per GIR. He took some luster off with bogey-4 at the 11th and double bogey-5 at the seventh after putting his tee ball into the water.

Chesson Hadley heads home for his fifth start at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Raleigh, North Carolina, native is 0-for-4 at this event, so local knowledge has not helped him so far. He's posted five of his eight round at par or worse, despite Sedgefield Country Club playing as one of the easiest par 70s, annually. On the status front, Hadley is set to lose his winner's exemption at the end of the season (from winning the 2014 Puerto Rico Open). Now he finds himself 159th in the FedExCup standings in need of a big week in order to retain his PGA TOUR card.

Chesson Hadley coasted to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open.

Hadley split six (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation. He took advantage of the reachable par 5s, playing them at 3-under on the day, including an 11'3" birdie splash at the 13th. That was one of just two putts rolled in from outside seven feet. Hadley is making his second appearance at Glen Abbey. Last year he opened with a 5-under 67 before back-pedaling to rounds of 74-73-73 to finish T72.

Chesson Hadley handed in a 2-under-par 36-34=70 after today's final round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a four-day total of 4-under 284, up five on the live leaderboard to T12.

This was the North Carolina native's third appearance with a previous best of T20 last year. He was T3 after 36 holes this week after opening in 71-67, but a third-round one-birdie 76 knocked him out of contention, beginning the final frame T17 on 2-under. Hadley is currently T2 in total birdies with 19, including six in R2 and seven today, and is a respectable T11 in bogeys with 11, but squared four of those in the finale, lowlighted by a 3-putt from 38'4" for a walk-off 5 that knocked him out of the top 10. The 28-year-old also swallowed three doubles, T74 of 78 players, but will depart for Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, with a personal best at Quail Hollow.

Chesson Hadley torched Quail Hollow Club with a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship, arriving at the midpoint at 6-under 138.

The North Carolina native (and resident) circled seven birdies today and had just one blemish. It was a big blemish, as he didn't reach the green on the par-4 fourth hole until his fourth shot, and swallowed a double bogey after a two-putt. It was all about the flat stick for Hadley today. He rolled a 21'2" birdie bomb on the par-4 first hole and stretched it out to 35'1" to save par at the par-4 fourth. Hadley would splash in one more in from just outside 21 feet, and also sprinkled in five more putts made from outside six feet. At the time he signed his scorecard, he was gaining 4.687 strokes over the field with his flat stick.

Chesson Hadley grinded out a T20 last week and now turns his attention toward Quail Hollow Club for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Hadley battled rain delays in NOLA and five days later he walked away with a T20. His prep for this week might be a little lighter than usual, due to the Monday finish at the Zurich Classic. However, the North Carolina native will feel right at home this week so there is not as much prep work needed. Hadley missed the cut in his 2014 Wells Fargo debut, but returned with a T20 last year. Gamers should consider Hadley in deeper fantasy formats this week, as the home state advantage can't be ruled out.
