Chesson Hadley heated up in the middle of his third round of the BMW Championship for a 2-under-par 26-32=68 and improves to 4-under 206 for the tournament.
Hadley's five birdies at Cherry Hills CC came in a binge, as he got the party started with a 13'1" birdie at the par-4 ninth and ended it with a 3'3" effort at the par-4 13th. The highlight was his 19'1" birdie at the par-3 12th, producing his familiar snaps. He only played two holes above par, with a bogey at the par-3 sixth preceded by a double bogey at the par-4 fifth hole. Currently 57th in the FedExCup standings, he needs a big finish to crack the top 30 for inclusion into the field at the TOUR Championship. Sep 6 - 6:23 PM

Chesson Hadley carded a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the BMW Championship, coming to rest just one stroke behind the threesome sharing the clubhouse lead.

His T9 at TPC Boston lifted him to 57th and into the field at Cherry Hills. He'll need a very high finish to advance to the finale, but he didn't hurt his chances today. Hadley split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. The rookie circled four birdies, the longest from 13'4" at the par-3 12th hole, to cover bogeys at Nos. 4 and 5.
Sep 4 - 6:56 PM

Chesson Hadley settled for a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and ends his week at 9-under 275.

The rookie began the week as the only man still standing in the FedExCup standings, but at 84th in the rankings he was in danger of missing the final two legs of the Playoffs. He came the the 18th hole on Monday needing a par to advance, and did one better. In all, he circled four birdies to just two bogeys on his lap around TPC Boston. While three of the birdies were from close range, the snaps came out with a 33'10" roll at the par-4 12th. This is his best finish since winning the Puerto Rico Open back in March.
Sep 1 - 5:08 PM

Chesson Hadley enjoyed a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing three strokes off the overnight lead.

At 84th in FedExCup points, Hadley is the remaining PGA TOUR rookie alive in the Playoffs after Brice Garnett got bounced at last week's Barclays. The winner in Puerto Rico hadn't scored as low as today since second-round 65 en route to his breakthrough. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation at TPC Boston today, picking off six birdies along the way. His longest of the set measured just 12'7" at the par-5 18th hole. Hadley also buried a par save from 11'1" at the par-3 11th, his second hole of the round.

Chesson Hadley enters the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 84th in the FedExCup standings.

Hadley is the final rookie remaining in the FEC Playoffs, and is fading fast. He's missed the cut in 10 of his last 12 starts, finishing alone in 70th at The Barclays last week. He played well early this season, winning in Puerto Rico, but perhaps the grind of the full season has worn him out. It would be a surprise if he was still standing at week's end.
Aug 26 - 8:50 PM

Chesson Hadley readies for Valhalla Golf Club this week at the 96th PGA Championship.

Hadley failed to earn a weekend tee time in his major championship debut earlier in the season at The Open, but has another shot this week. He enters Valhalla ranked 64th in the FedExCup standings but has also missed eight of his last nine cuts. Hadley is 90th or worse in driving accuracy, driving distance, strokes gained-putting, and scoring average. He's flashed his upside many times this season, but it's easy to lower your expectations once you see those statistical rankings.
Aug 5 - 10:04 AM

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.
Jul 1 - 9:44 PM

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.
Jun 6 - 2:58 PM

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.
May 1 - 3:12 PM

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.
