Chesson Hadley's rookie season continues at The Greenbrier Classic later this week.
He's stuck in a rut of late. With the exception of his T13 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, Hadley's missed his last six cuts. It's a bit surprising that he's suffered a hangover after winning in Puerto Rico considering he won multiple times on the Tour in 2013. Perhaps he'll catch his second wind at The Old White TPC.

Chesson Hadley reached the halfway point of the FedEx St. Jude Classic in 4-under-par 67-69=136 and sits eight swing off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Don't let the deficit fool you. Ben Crane is playing a different course, at least metaphorically. Hadley had been reeling of late, missing four straight cuts and failing to break par in 10 consecutive rounds. Today's loop featured three birdies, including a conversion from 17'9" at the par-5 third hole. Half of his eight birdies this week have come on the pair of par 5s at TPC Southwind.

Chesson Hadley has cooled off with the FedEx St. Jude Classic awaiting later this week.

Hadley is still the leader in the clubhouse for rookie-of-the-year honors thanks to a win in Puerto Rico, but his recent form is a concern. While he's still 48th in the FedExCup standings, he's missed his last four cuts. He tallied a 14-over-par 154 at Colonial followed by a 5-over 149 at Memorial in his last two starts.
Jun 3 - 10:24 PM

Chesson Hadley posted a 3-over-par 39-36=75 in an eventful opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

Hadley withdrew early from last week's stop in New Orleans, but at the turn today, his caddie, Josh Svendsen, acted like he was ambling home after a late night in the French Quarter. After a double-bogey 6 at the ninth hole, Svendsen tripped on television cables and went down hard on a cart path. He came away unscathed, but Hadley's putter did not. The PGA TOUR rookie told a rules official that the clubhead had been turned open as a result of the spill. After a look at the stick, the official allowed Hadley to keep it in play and use it if he wished. Hadley then Texas-wedged his third at the par-5 10th, which he birdied with a second swipe of the club, this time on the green. "We didn’t miss any putts we should have made," he said. Indeed, he went 9-for-9 inside 10 feet coming home. His longest conversion with the damaged putter measured 7'11" for par at the par-3 17th.

Chesson Hadley has been removed from the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The rookie has survived six consecutive cuts and is likely lining up starts in the invitationals in May, so you can understand if he's adjusting his schedule. Hadley ranks a lofty 29th in the FedExCup standings.
Apr 21 - 11:46 AM

Chesson Hadley is 3-under-par 72-67=139 through two rounds of the RBC Heritage and sits two strokes off the 36-hole co-leaders.

Hadley returned to Harbour Town this morning to complete his second round. By the time it had concluded, he had wrangled five birdies, including a pair of snaps. The first came courtesy of a four-yarder from the fringe at 5. The PGA TOUR rookie then walked off with a 13'6" conversion at 9.
Apr 19 - 11:51 AM

Chesson Hadley swallowed an 8-over-par 40-40=80 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to miss his bid at earning a Masters invitation.

Hadley needed to finish solo seventh or better to earn enough Official World Golf Ranking points to finish inside the top 50 at week's end to punch a ticket to Augusta National. Considering he closed out Bay Hill with a 79 in last week's finale, it is fair to wonder whether the exemption weighed heavy on his mind. Short of a win at the Shell Houston Open, he'll have to wait until next year for his first drive down Magnolia Lane.
Mar 30 - 4:52 PM

Chesson Hadley smoothed a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, closing one stroke off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

He can do no wrong lately. He was the only rookie to make the cut in the last two events on the Florida Swing after the breakthrough in Puerto Rico. At TPC San Antonio today, after holing a birdie from 10'10" at the par-4 17th to go 2-under, he'd rinse his second at the par-5 18th. After taking a drop, Hadley proceeded to jar his fourth from 111 yards from a lie in the rough for what was his third straight birdie and fourth in the last five holes. Just when you think that his stock couldn't rise any higher.
Mar 27 - 9:14 PM

Chesson Hadley signed for a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is tied for fifth at 10-under 206 with 18 to play.

The rookie thrust himself into contention with four birdies on his first six holes as Adam Scott was slow out of the gates. He stumbled with a bogey at the par-3 seventh after drawing a tough lie in a greenside bunker. His pace slowed considerably on the back nine, trading a birdie for a bogey and failing to take advantage of either of the par 5s. He landed 15 GIR for the second consecutive round.
Mar 22 - 5:49 PM

Chesson Hadley crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

He's really feeling it right now. After breaking through for victory in Puerto Rico, he backed it up with a T14 at Copperhead where he survived the cut thanks to a long-range birdie on his 36th hole. Today at Bay Hill, he went 3-for-3 in scrambling and picked off four birdies, three of which on par 5s, the longest measuring 12'11" at the fourth hole. The rookie also circled a zero-putt nine-yarder at the par-4 15th. He reached the midpoint in 7-under 137, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 21 - 1:09 PM

Chesson Hadley spun a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Valspar Championship, improving to 1-under 212 for the tournament.

Hadley's hangover from his win at the Puerto Rico open was limited to a first-round 75 at the Copperhead Course, as he's rebounded nicely with a 1-under 70 in the second round a a 67 on Saturday. Today's navigation included five birdies to just one bogey. Much like Retief Goosen just ahead of him, the rookie also failed to birdie any of the four par 5s. He did manage 15 GIR and gained well over a stroke on the field with his flat stick. Snaps for that.
Mar 15 - 11:55 AM

Chesson Hadley signed for a 4-over-par 38-37=75 following his opening round of the Valspar Championship.

Last week's breakthrough winner in Puerto Rico opened bogey-bogey-par-bogey on the back side of Copperhead today. He rebounded with birdies at 1 and 2, but double-bogeyed the par-4 third to hand it all back. A bogey-5 at No. 7 piled on. Overall, he split eight (of 13) fairways but landed only nine greens in regulation.
Mar 13 - 1:28 PM

Chesson Hadley picked up his first PGA TOUR win at the Puerto Rico Open when he polished off a final-round 5-under-par 33-34=67.

Hadley didn't relinquish control of his 54-hole lead, picking up three birdies in his first five holes before suffering his only bogey at the par-3 sixth. He bounced back with a birdie on the par-4 seventh, and then tacked on birdies at the par-4 17th and par-5 18th just as Danny Lee began to close the gap. The rookie's 21-under 267 resulted in a two-stroke final margin over Lee. Hadley was a two-time winner on the Tour last season and entered this week as the only PGA TOUR rookie to post two top 10s in 2013-14. Needless to say, this win was essentially fulfilling the promise of his last 12 months. With it, he is exempt into THE PLAYERS and the PGA Championship.
Mar 9 - 5:05 PM

Chesson Hadley will sleep on the 54-hole lead at the Puerto Rico Open following a third-round 5-under-par 32-35=67.

Hadley looked like he would run away with the tournament early, circling four birdies on the first six holes at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. His last 12 holes produced just one birdie to 11 pars, and he managed to keep his round bogey-free by landing 17 GIR. His 16-under 200 has him one-stroke clear of Danny Lee, and two ahead of Jason Gore and Jonathan Byrd. The rookie will try and close the door on his first PGA TOUR victory in Sunday's finale.
Mar 8 - 3:59 PM

Chesson Hadley backed up his opening 68 at the Puerto Rico Open with a 7-under-par 34-31=65 in his second round.

The rookie converted an eagle (at the par-5 second hole) and seven birdies while squaring two bogeys at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today. Although this is only his 13th career start on the PGA TOUR, this matches his personal low of 65 that opened the Shriners in October. He'll wake up on Saturday on the island sitting 11-under 133, one stroke off the 36-hole lead.
