Playing this season on Past Champion status, Chesson Hadley carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to post 14-under 198, down two places to solo fifth, two back of 54-hole leader Mackenzie Hughes.
After beginning his fourth appearance in 65-66, the 29-year-old began the third round in a four-way T3 on 11-under, three back of Hughes. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he digressed to seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, circling four birdies against a lone bogey-5 at the fourth on a failed up-and-down. The Georgia Tech alum (2010) dropped two birdies from between 15 and 17 feet and also canned a 47-foot par-saver on the par-4 10th. Nov 19 - 6:47 PM

Playing the Plantation Course, Chesson Hadley spun a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of The RSM Classic to post 11-under 131, up 20 places to T3, three shy of 36-hole leader Mackenzie Hughes.

The 29-year-old, playing this season on Past Champion status, is making just his second start of 2016-17 after a missed cut three weeks ago at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms. This is his fourth consecutive RSM, cashing a T32 in 2015 (66-70-70-68) and missing the cut last year and on debut in 2014. The Georgia Tech alum opened with a seven-birdie two-bogey 65 (Seaside Course) and circled NINE in R2 on 13 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, recording a stellar 1.429 putts per GIR. He took some luster off with bogey-4 at the 11th and double bogey-5 at the seventh after putting his tee ball into the water.

Chesson Hadley heads home for his fifth start at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Raleigh, North Carolina, native is 0-for-4 at this event, so local knowledge has not helped him so far. He's posted five of his eight round at par or worse, despite Sedgefield Country Club playing as one of the easiest par 70s, annually. On the status front, Hadley is set to lose his winner's exemption at the end of the season (from winning the 2014 Puerto Rico Open). Now he finds himself 159th in the FedExCup standings in need of a big week in order to retain his PGA TOUR card.

Chesson Hadley coasted to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open.

Hadley split six (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation. He took advantage of the reachable par 5s, playing them at 3-under on the day, including an 11'3" birdie splash at the 13th. That was one of just two putts rolled in from outside seven feet. Hadley is making his second appearance at Glen Abbey. Last year he opened with a 5-under 67 before back-pedaling to rounds of 74-73-73 to finish T72.

Chesson Hadley handed in a 2-under-par 36-34=70 after today's final round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a four-day total of 4-under 284, up five on the live leaderboard to T12.

This was the North Carolina native's third appearance with a previous best of T20 last year. He was T3 after 36 holes this week after opening in 71-67, but a third-round one-birdie 76 knocked him out of contention, beginning the final frame T17 on 2-under. Hadley is currently T2 in total birdies with 19, including six in R2 and seven today, and is a respectable T11 in bogeys with 11, but squared four of those in the finale, lowlighted by a 3-putt from 38'4" for a walk-off 5 that knocked him out of the top 10. The 28-year-old also swallowed three doubles, T74 of 78 players, but will depart for Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, with a personal best at Quail Hollow.
May 8 - 4:40 PM

Chesson Hadley torched Quail Hollow Club with a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship, arriving at the midpoint at 6-under 138.

The North Carolina native (and resident) circled seven birdies today and had just one blemish. It was a big blemish, as he didn't reach the green on the par-4 fourth hole until his fourth shot, and swallowed a double bogey after a two-putt. It was all about the flat stick for Hadley today. He rolled a 21'2" birdie bomb on the par-4 first hole and stretched it out to 35'1" to save par at the par-4 fourth. Hadley would splash in one more in from just outside 21 feet, and also sprinkled in five more putts made from outside six feet. At the time he signed his scorecard, he was gaining 4.687 strokes over the field with his flat stick.
May 6 - 12:58 PM

Chesson Hadley grinded out a T20 last week and now turns his attention toward Quail Hollow Club for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Hadley battled rain delays in NOLA and five days later he walked away with a T20. His prep for this week might be a little lighter than usual, due to the Monday finish at the Zurich Classic. However, the North Carolina native will feel right at home this week so there is not as much prep work needed. Hadley missed the cut in his 2014 Wells Fargo debut, but returned with a T20 last year. Gamers should consider Hadley in deeper fantasy formats this week, as the home state advantage can't be ruled out.

Chesson Hadley headed straight to the top of the leaderboard following a 3-under-par 36-32=68 during the first round of the Valspar Championship, where he currently sits one back of the co-leaders.

The Georgia Tech product looks happy to be done with the West Coast Swing. He recorded nothing better than a T58 during that stretch of four starts, but he's kicked off the Florida Swing with a T21 at The Honda Classic and now today's fantastic opener. Hadley did his damage on the greens, walking off the course with a 3.687 strokes gained:putting. This 3-under round goes in the books as the low-round of the afternoon wave thus far.
Mar 10 - 5:19 PM

Chesson Hadley took care of business on the South Course at Torrey Pines, signing for a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in round one of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Hadley fell three shots shy of the cut line last week, but is off to a good bounceback so far in La Jolla, California. The Georgia Tech product opened his round with an 8'1" birdie putt on the par-4 10th hole. It was a sign of things to come with the flat stick as he made six putts from outside seven feet on the round. That includes a pair of birdie bombs from outside 23 feet. Hadley finished the round with 4.24 strokes gained:putting. It's an unsustainable number, so he will need some help from his tee-to-green game if he wants to remain in contention this week.
Jan 28 - 8:39 PM

Chesson Hadley readies for his second visit to the Farmers Insurance Open and hasn't registered a top 10 on TOUR in his last 18 starts.

Hadley's last top 10 was T8 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans last April. He's in the final year of full-exempt status on TOUR from his lone win at the 2014 Puerto Rico Open, which remains his only podium in 66 career starts. In his last 11 events dating back to last season, he's not finished better than T61 (PGA Championship) and missed five cuts, including three of five in 2015-16. The 28-year-old missed the 36-hole cut by one in 2014 (73-72) in his only prior appearance at Torrey Pines.

Chesson Hadley has a lot of work to do in 2016 after collecting a measly nine FedExCup points during the fall portion of the schedule.

The Georgia Tech product has kicked off the 2015-16 season with a 2-for-4 record, with nothing better than a T62 at the Shriners. On the bright side, Hadley failed to impress last fall and still went on to finish 98th in the FEC race. His sophomore season consisted of seven more cuts made than his rookie season and six less missed cuts. Gamers should keep Hadley on their watch list early in the season.

Chesson Hadley heads overseas to Malaysia for this week's CIMB Classic.

Hadley signed for a disappointing T65 in his debut last year. On the bright side, his final round 3-under 39 was five strokes better than his next best. Perhaps he figured the course out just a little by week's end. Hadley has finished outside the top 60 in both of his starts to kick off the 2015-16 campaign. Gamers should look elsewhere this week unless they'rein the mood to roll the dice.

Reigning PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year Chesson Hadley blew up to a 9-over-par 38-42=80 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to wrap his second appearance at 10-over 294, good for a firm hold on last place.

With 284 rounds completed thru three-plus days at TPC Boston, Hadley holds the dubious distinction of carding the only score in the 80s. After opening in 73-71-70, Hadley squared five bogeys in the finale, adding two doubles and a triple bogey-7 at the 12th. At the time he signed his card, the 28-year-old sat T72 for the week in greens in regulation (38/72), including a dismal four today, and is dead last in strokes gained: total with a not surprising cumulative of -11.164. Hadley advanced to the third leg of the FedExCup Playoffs last season, finishing 49th in the final FEC standings. His 2014-15 campaign ends with 20 made cuts on 30 starts, but just three for top 10s, and is eliminated at 98th in FEC points.

With the top 70 advancing after this week to the BMW Championship at Conway Farms on Sept. 17-20, Chesson Hadley enters his second career visit to the Deutsche Bank Championship at 97th in the FedExCup standings,

Hadley is the reigning PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year, claiming his maiden TOUR title at the Puerto Rico Open in his 13th career start. The win was the highlight of four top-10 finishes on a 29-start season, which nearly ended at the TOUR Championship, bowing out in the third leg of the Playoffs at 49th in the FEC standings (T70/The Barclays, T9/Deutsche Bank, T12/BMW Championship). In his sophomore season, the 28-year-old recorded his first top 10 in his eighth start (T10, AT&T Pebble Beach), and added a season-best T4 (on 29 starts) at the Valero Texas Open at the end of March. Hadley posted four straight top 25s between a T8 at the Zurich Classic and a T24 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational to bump to 53rd in FEC points, but has faded to 97th over his last nine events by missing four cuts, including back-to-back at the Wyndham and last week's Barclays.

American Chesson Hadley turns his attention to the 97th PGA Championship in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and is in the first group off the first tee on Thursday (6:45 a.m CT) with South Africa's Rory Sabbatini and club professional Ryan Helminen of Appleton, Wisconsin.

Hadley has made two prior appearances in major championships. He missed the cut by five strokes in last year's PGA at Valhalla (par 71) on rounds of 74-73, and also missed the cut by five in the 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. Hadley is exempt on TOUR thru 2015-16 via his win at the 2014 Puerto Rico Open, his lone title in 57 career starts. This season, he's cashed 18 times on 26 starts, with eight top 25s, three for top 10s. His last top-10 finish came 10 starts ago at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans (T8). The 28-year-old enters the week 78th in the FedExCup standings.
