Prior to the start of the event, Chesson Hadley had withdrawn from this week's AT&T Byron Nelson.
Hadley posted a strong T11 at last week's PLAYERS Championship. When in contention early in the week he mentioned that he was battling a "man cold" so it comes as no big surprise that he's now opting for rest. Gamers should remove him from all weekly lineups but shouldn't be worried about any long-term impact. May 14 - 3:25 PM

First-round co-leader and World No. 69 Chesson Hadley rebounded for a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to wrap on 11-under 277, up 14 spots to T12 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Hadley finished T11.

After opening with 66, the Georgia Tech alum was one of six co-leaders, followed with 69 that ended in double bogey-5 and bogey (now T5), and ballooned to 75 in R3, beginning T26 on 6-under, two short of the overnight top 10. On 13 greens in regulation, he carded six birdies against one bogey, currently 2.882 strokes gained: total in R4. For the week, the 30-year-old totaled one eagle and 21 birdies versus 10 bogeys and one double. This was his fourth PLAYERS and second cash, bettering a T24 two tries ago in 2015, and improves to 16-for-18 on the season with 11 top 25s, six straight.

Chesson Hadley was cruising along in round two of THE PLAYERS Championship before a few late hiccups, still managing a 3-under-par 34-35=69 to reach the midpoint on 9-under 135, just one of the current clubhouse lead.

Hadley stated that he's battling a bit of a "man cold" this week but that has bothered him on the golf course so far. He tossed in birdies at 1 and 4 on his outward nine and then picked up the scoring after the turn. The next four circles came at 10, 12, 15, and 16 with the most notable coming at the par-4 15th where he drained a 23'9" bomb. Putting has been key for him as he ranks third in the field in strokes gained putting on the live leaderboard. Just as crucial, he saved par at the par-5 11th despite finding water on his approach shot. Water would eventually cause a late slide as he splashed his tee ball at the famous par-3 17th which led to a double bogey and then backed that up with a bogey on 18. In three previous starts at TPC Sawgrass, Hadley has never been better than T46 at the midpoint.

Chesson Hadley caught fire during round one of THE PLAYERS Championship, piecing together a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to find himself in a share of the clubhouse lead with play winding down for the day. UPDATE: This is Hadley's first 18-hole lead/co-lead in 114 events and his first lead/co-lead after ANY round since winning the 2014 Puerto Rico Open.

It was a roller-coaster out of the gate with bogey-eagle-birdie-bogey, starting on the 10th tee. He added long-distance birdies at the 15th and 18th, both from outside 20 feet. After the turn, he added four more birdies, including a 44'7" birdie bomb at the par-4 fifth hole. Entering on the heels of five straight top 20s, this round should come as no surprise to any fans or gamers that have been watching Hadley closely. In three previous visits to TPC Sawgrass, Hadley was 1-for-3 with a T24 being the highlight (2015). During that top 25 he twirled a 6-under 66 in R3 so this matches his low round here. Hadley walked off the course gaining 5.180 strokes putting.

In alternate-shot action at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, World No. 70 Chesson Hadley and World No. 121 Brice Garnett and World No. 70 Chesson Hadley stalled out to a 1-under-par 32-39=71 in the final round, good for a two-way T4 on 19-under 269, three swings shy of champions Billy Horschel and Scott Piercy.

After kicking off in 64-73-61, the teammates began in solo 4th, two back of leaders Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown. Playing out of the penultimate group, they went out in bogey-free 4-under, and after Hadley drained a 9'9" par-saver at 10, were leading on 22-under, one clear of Horschel/Piercy. The duo went flat from there, however, squaring three bogeys at 13, 14 and 17. Both players were making their tourney debuts in the team format while Hadley records a second top 10 after T8 on debut in 2015.

Chesson Hadley didn't light the lamp often but he did manage to keep a clean card, signing for a bogey-free, 1-under-par 35-36=71 during the second round of the Valero Texas Open, earning him a share of eighth place at the midpoint, sitting on 5-under 139.

Hadley split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation but most of his chances were just outside of scoring range. He did miss a 6'3" birdie chance but the rest of his misses came from outside 10 feet. That included seven missed opportunities from the 11-to-20 foot range. A combination of low proximity and a cold putter held this round back. On the bright side, Hadley didn't try to push the envelope and settled for pars. On the week he has just one bogey and has gone 27 straight holes without a blemish. That should give the finger-snappin' Georgia Tech product plenty of confidence heading into the weekend.

Battling tough conditions on day one of the Valero Texas Open, Chesson Hadley manhandled the AT&T Oaks Course to the tune of a 4-under-par 33-35=68, placing him just one off the pace set by Grayson Murray.

For a string bean that calls himself the Wind Sock, some of Hadley's best career rounds have come in windy conditions. We can add another to his wind resume today as he circled five birdies while dropping just one shot. That came on a day where the morning wave averaged 73.83 strokes (5.83 shots more than Hadley). Strong short game was the name of the game today as he sank two putts from outside 13 feet and also holed out twice from just off the green (21'3" and 26'0"). Playing his 11th career round at TPC San Antonio, this goes in the books as his new personal best. That's saying a lot since he recorded a T4 here back in 2015 (71-72-71-71). Entering the week ranked 2nd on TOUR in strokes gained approach, Hadley should continue to give himself scoring chances this week. He should keep his name in the mix as long as he can avoid the big number.

World No. 74 Chesson Hadley back-pedaled with a 1-over-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the RBC Heritage, dropping one spot to T7 on 9-under 275.

After kicking off with 66-68-69, the North Carolinian began T6, three back of leader Ian Poulter. He conjured eight (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, losing 2.560 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 1.164 approaching-the-green. The Georgia Tech alum carded four birdies at holes 4, 6, 7 and 15, two from between 16 and 18 feet, overshadowed by three squares at 8, 9 and 12, and double bogey-7 at 2 (tee ball OB). He registered 1.636 putts per GIR and 1.061 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. This is the 30-year-old's seventh top 25 of the season in 14 starts and fifth top 10. He improves to 2-for-4 at the RBC, brushing aside a T38 on debut in 2014 during his rookie campaign.

World No. 74 Chesson Hadley patched together a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the RBC Heritage, dipping two places to T6 on 10-under 203, three shy of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Ian Poulter.

After opening in 66-68, the Georgia Tech alum began T4, two back of leader Bryson DeChambeau. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.048 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.921 around-the-green. The 2017 Tour Player of the Year squared a lone bogey-4 at hole 7, outpaced by three birdies at 5, 6 and 12, two from between 14 and 16 feet. He posted 1.769 putts per GIR and 0.336 SG: Putting, needing 29 total putts. The North Carolinian is a one-time winner in 109 events, claiming the 2014 Puerto Rico Open (as 54-hole leader) during his rookie season.

World No. 74 Chesson Hadley tacked on a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the second round of the RBC Heritage to reach 8-under 134, currently solo 3rd and one back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Si Woo Kim. UPDATE: At the end of play, Hadley is T4, two back of leader Bryson DeChambeau.

The Georgia Tech alum was serviceable from tee-to-green but similar to Day 1, the flat stick did most of the talking. He hit eight (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 0.169 strokes around-the green and 0.413 strokes tee-to-green. The North Carolinian squared two bogeys at 12 and 14 (failed scrambles), offset by five circles at 2, 5, 9 15 and 18, walking off with birdie-3 from 18 feet, his longest conversion on the round. He posted a tidy 1.500 putts per GIR and 1.759 SG: Putting with 25 total putts.

Chesson Hadley enjoyed his first lap around Harbour Town Golf Links this week, styling a 5-under-par 34-32=66 to grab a share of second place, two off the torrid pace set by Rory Sabbatini.

Hadley split 10 (of 14) fairways today and also pelted 13 greens in regulation. The ball-striking was okay but his putting is what separated him from the field. By day's end, he knocked in three birdie putts from outside 15 feet, including a pair from the 21-to-25 foot range. With the course playing more than a shot tougher than in the morning today, Hadley is currently the only golfer to come out of the PM wave to post anything better than 3-under 68. In three previous Heritage starts, Hadley is 1-for-3 here with a T38 in 2014 being the clear highlight. Playing his ninth competitive round at Harbour Town GL, this is just the second round that Hadley has recorded at par or better.

World No. 73 Chesson Hadley authored a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in the third round of the Houston Open to post 11-under 205, up four spots on the live leaderboard to T7, three shy of 54-hole clubhouse leader Ian Poulter.

The 30-year-old conjured seven (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.634 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 1.967 approaching-the-green. He was bogey-free 4-under thru 13 holes, circling birdies at 1 and 2 and eagle-3 at 8 (from 25'5"), before sandwiching a final birdie at 15 with bogey-4s at 14 and 16. The Georgia Tech alum registered 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.574 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.
Mar 31 - 5:31 PM

The Georgia Tech alum also owns four top 10s, all doubling as top 5s, most recently a T5 at the Phoenix Open five starts ago. He kicked off with a bogey-free 68 (four birdies) and added five more circles against a lone bogey-5 at 11 (tee ball in the water) on Day 2. The North Carolinian lost 1.000 strokes off-the-tee but gained 1.507 approaching and 1.831 on-the-green. He recorded 1.583 putts per GIR with 25 total putts.

This was the 30-year-old's third WMPO and second cash, brushing aside a T60 on last visit in 2016. He's 8-for-8 on the season with five top 25s and four top 10s, first since a T4 at the Shriners. After kicking off with 66-68-68, the Georgia Tech alum began T8 on 11-under, three adrift of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. On six (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he squared a lone bogey-4 at hole 4, outpaced by four circles at 2, 7, 11 and 15, two from between 10 and 20 feet.

UPDATE: With play completed, Hadley is T5, two shy of 36-hole co-leaders Rickie Fowler and Bryson DeChambeau.

In total, he outpaced three squares at holes 4, 5 and 7 (3-putt from 41'8") with six circles at 2, 6 (from 31'8"), 8, 13, 15 and 17, two of those 2-putt varieties.
