Chesson Hadley polished off a good week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to post 15-under 272.
He was tied for seventh at last check and will likely secure his first top 10 of the season. However, it didn't end as well as he wanted. After rinsing his second at the par-5 18th hole, he'd eventually three-putt from 25'7" for double bogey. Prior to it, he rattled home seven birdies, including two sprints of three in a row. His first run began with a four-yard conversion from the fringe at the par-3 fifth. Hadley authored his second burst on Nos. 15-17, the latter two conversions measuring 17'10" and 17'11", respectively. The PGA TOUR sophomore will try to connect top 10s for the first time in his career at the Northern Trust Open this week. Feb 15 - 5:27 PM

Chesson Hadley answered his opening 64 at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 at Spyglass Hill Golf Club in today's second round.

Every touring pro experiences a day like this. While he'll beat the field average on the toughest of the three tracks, Hadley probably feels like he should have scored lower. He piped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to five birdies, but also swallowed a pair of bogey-5s mid-round to stymie momentum. In fact, he needed birdies on three of his last four holes to snipe the sub-70. He posted 10-under 133 and is positioned just two strokes adrift of the overnight co-leaders. The PGA TOUR sophomore will take his turn on the host course on Saturday.

Chesson Hadley enjoyed a 7-under-par 34-30=64 on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Hadley has sputtered a bit in his sophomore season, but there are a lot of guys that wouldn't mind sitting 128th in the FedExCup standings at this point. He's poised for a jump this week, however. He hit 15 greens in regulation and poured in eight birdies before parking it one stroke off the clubhouse lead (even though pacesetter J.B. Holmes shot the same aggregate at Pebble Beach). Hadley signed his card with the added bonus that this is his lowest score on the PGA TOUR. The AT&T is his 39th career start. He'll slide over to Spyglass Hill for the second round.

Chesson Hadley tied for 10th in his first AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am last year, and he's back to give it another go this season.

Hadley has struggled to get things moving in the right direction in 2014-15, failing to crack the top 30 in a full-field event. He entered Pebble Beach last season having missed his most recent five cuts leading into that event. Perhaps this will once again prove to be a catalyst to success in the near future. He followed up last year's T10 with a MC-T24-1-T14 run.
Feb 9 - 8:20 PM

Chesson Hadley spun a 5-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and enters the finale at 8-under 211.

Hadley put on a bit of a firework show on The Plantation Course at Kapalua. His first birdie of the round came at the par-4 seventh hole from just off the green, dropping from 17'10". He quickly followed that up with an eagle from 23'4" on the par-5 ninth hole. The back nine featured three birdies, including a 25'1" effort on the par-3 11th hole to go with just one bogey. It would take something very special for him to have a shot at a win on Monday, but he is in position to sneak a top 10 out of the back door.
Jan 11 - 6:46 PM

Chesson Hadley picked up a win in the Puerto Rico Open during his rookie season on the PGA TOUR and enjoys the fruit of that with his first start in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Hadley made three of his four cuts on the PGA TOUR to begin the 2014-15 season, but posted nothing better than a T32 in The McGladrey Classic. He finds himself 126th in the FedExCup standings entering this week. In addition to his four PGA TOUR starts, he also missed the cut in the Thailand Golf Championship. The winds surrounding The Plantation Course at Kapalua generally mean veterans of this event have an advantages, so consider hedging an investment in the sophomore with an experienced competitor.
Jan 4 - 10:37 PM

Chesson Hadley posted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, finishing one stroke off the early clubhouse lead.

The PGA TOUR sophomore has competed in each of the first three events, but he's still looking for a spark after a T57-MC start. He may have found it on Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course today. Hadley hit 12 greens and buried six birdies, three of which from outside 11 feet, the longest stretching 36'3" at the par-4 11th hole. If there was a negative, it's that he walked off with a three-jack bogey from 40'1" at the par-4 ninth, but he saved par twice in notable fashion. The first came courtesy of a 12-footer at the par-4 16th. The other was a four-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 second.

Chesson Hadley picked up the second-best finish of his 2013-14 season at last year's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and is back in Las Vegas this week.

Hadley locked up his rookie-of-the-year honors with a win in Puerto Rico, but his T5 at TPC Summerlin earlier in the season laid the groundwork for his success. As enticing as his course history is, his T57 in last week's Open is a pause for concern. If making the cut is of value in a certain format, he's a worthy investment.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
