World No. 79 Chesson Hadley, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, withdrew on Sunday during the third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba citing an illness. UPDATE: Hadley returned to action Nov. 16th at The RSM Classic and after two rounds, is T23 on 6-under 67-69=136, eight back of 36-hole leader Austin Cook.
This is the 30-year-old's first mid-tourney WD in his 100th career start. After opening in 71-70, including an up-and-down par at the par-4 18th to make the cut on the number, he was bogey-free 1-under thru nine holes, 2-under total when he packed it in. With his WD, there are now 78 players remaining, so no secondary, 54-hole cut will take place now. The Georgia Tech alum, who arrived off T4 at last week's Shriners, his third straight top-5 finish to open the season, is in the published field at next week's RSM Classic. Nov 12 - 10:15 AM

Two-time Tour grad and World No. 86 Chesson Hadley signed for a 3-under-par 31-37=68 after the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open for a 72-hole total of 8-under 276, good for a three-way T4, one shot shy of a three-man playoff involving Alex Cejka, Patrick Cantlay and Whee Kim.

This was the 30-year-old's third start of the season and third straight top-5 finish, following T3 (Safeway) and solo 2nd at last week's Sanderson Farms. He was chasing his second TOUR title, first in 86 starts (2014, Puerto Rico Open), but settles for his 10th career top 10 in 99 career events. After opening in 74-65-69, the Georgia Tech alum began T4, four back, and hit seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation out of the penultimate threesome. He went out in 4-under 31, outpacing bogey-5 at 2 with five circles at 1, 5-7 and 9, but stalled out with eight pars and a walk-off bogey-5 that knocked him out of the playoff. Hadley posted 1.643 putts per GIR and 2.173 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts.

World No. 86 Chesson Hadley authored a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open for a 54-hole total of 5-under 208, up nine spots to T6 with play still in progress.

The 30-year-old conjured five (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.641 strokes around-the-green but gaining 0.739 approaching-the-green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 6 (bogey-save from 10'7") and 7, offset by four birdies at 2, 13, 15 and 16, all from inside of 12 feet. The North Carolinian posted 1.769 putts per GIR and 3.005 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.
Nov 4 - 6:52 PM

Chesson Hadley matched the low round of the week so far when he recorded a 6-under-par 34-31=65 to climb back into contention with a two-day tally of 3-under 139.

Hadley arrived in stellar form this week but it looked like that was coming to an end after an opening 3-over 74. The scoring conditions got tougher for his second round, but he turned it up a few notches to climb back into the mix. He got the job done with steady striking but his short game was also tidy. Throughout the round, he splashed in six putts from outside nine feet. The highlight came at the par-4 15th though, as Hadley holed out from the fairway (78'8") for an unconventional eagle. Entering on the heels of finishes of T3 and solo second, Hadley is now right back in the mix.
Nov 3 - 4:18 PM

Odds-fave and World No. 114 Chesson Hadley carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to reach 14-under 274, good for solo 2nd, five in arrears of overnight leader and champion Ryan Armour.

After kicking off in 68-70-68, the 30-year-old began in solo 2nd, five short of playing competitor Ryan Armour (68). He found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.801 strokes tee-to-green, No. 1 in SGTTG with a cumulative 11.730. The Georgia Tech alum squared two bogeys at holes 4 (3-putt from 8'6") and 12, overshadowed by four birdies at 3, 6, 9 and 13 (from 12'5"), and eagle-3 at 14 (5'1") that completed his scoring. He recorded 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.532 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. The one-time TOUR winner, 2-for-2 on the season after T3 at the Safeway three weeks ago, nets his first runner-up in his 98th career start.
Oct 29 - 5:56 PM

Odds-fave and World No. 114 Chesson Hadley crafted a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to reach 10-under 206, up seven spots to T2, good for the new 54-hole clubhouse lead though five swings back of the leader on the course Ryan Armour. UPDATE: With play completed, Hadley is solo 2nd, five back of Armour.

The two-time Tour grad was the pre-tourney fave outright (14/1) and is living up to the billing. After opening in 68-70, he began T9 on 6-under, four shy of 36-hole leader Armour. The Georgia Tech alum found 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation, gaining 3.696 strokes tee-to-green, currently No. 1 in SGTTG with a cumulative 8.687 and GIR at 83.33 percent (45/54). He squared a lone bogey-5 at 12, outpaced by five circles at 1, 3, 4, 8 and 17, all from between six and 12 feet. The North Carolinian recorded 1.706 putts per GIR and 0.349 SG: Putting with 31 total putts.
Oct 28 - 4:57 PM

Two-time Tour grad and World No. 114 Chesson Hadley makes final preparation for his second Sanderson Farms Championship and is the pre-tourney fave outright.

The 30-year-old missed the cut (by one) in his debut last year (74-69). He's a 14/1 fave this week and second-highest in OWGR to No. 75 William McGirt. The Georgia Tech alum began this season No. 1 in the WCT Priority Rankings and opened with a T3 at the Safeway, where he was solo 2nd thru 54 holes, highlighted by a career-best 11-under 61 in Round 2 (72-61-70-73). He posted 46-P2-1 in the WCT Finals, kicking off the run with his four WCT title, second of the season, at the Albertson Boise Open. Hadley's lone TOUR title in 97 career starts came at the 2014 Puerto Rico Open (as 54-hole leader) 85 starts ago during his rookie season.
Oct 25 - 8:59 PM

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.
