Chesson Hadley authored a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and posted 17-under 271 and finish in a four-way tie for eighth.
Hadley started his final round at 11-under (T20) and five shots off the pace. On the round he split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to a seven birdie, one bogey round. The 27-year-old's split ranged from 3'2" to a long of 16'1" on the par-3 17th. On a day with premium scoring conditions, he may have started too far back to contend, but his loop was good enough to bump him 12 spots and register his third top 10 on the season. Apr 26 - 8:27 PM

Chesson Hadley carded a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, finishing three strokes back of the overnight co-leaders.

He missed only two greens in regulation and dropped five birdies at TPC Louisiana today. His only notable conversion measured 15'2" for birdie at the par-5 18th, Hadley's ninth of the round. This mark's the 2014 Rookie of the Year's debut in the tournament. It was just four weeks ago that he registered a season-best T4 at the Valero Texas Open. The 27-year-old is 77th in the FedExCup standings.

Chesson Hadley carded a 1-under-par 26-35=71 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to tie for fourth place at 3-under 285.

Of his four birdies at TPC San Antonio, his 19'3" effort at the par-5 eighth was easily the highlight. Hadley squared a double bogey and a bogey, which prevented him from going even higher up the leaderboard. He ranked inside the top five in both putting average and strokes gained: putting. He has the reputation for snapping his fingers when he makes a big putt, and with stats like that here were plenty of snaps this week.

Chesson Hadley signed for a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open to join the clubhouse lead at 2-under214.

Snaps for that, as Hadley should enter the final round inside of the top five. He circled six birdies, but succumbed to three bogeys and a double bogey. Two of his birdies fell from longer than 10 feet, with a 26'4" birdie at the par-3 13th the highlight. He gained well over two strokes from tee-to-green and barely broke even with the flat stick. He will try and capture his second PGA TOUR win on Sunday.

Chesson Hadley looped TPC San Antonio in even-par 34-38=72 in today's second round of the Valero Texas Open and reached the midpoint in 1-under 143, five strokes in arrears of the 36-hole lead.

Hadley hit 13 greens in regulation and poured in five birdies, including respective gems from 28'6" and 26'7" at the second and 15th holes. He also squared a pair of bogey-5s where he missed the GIR at Nos. 1 and 17. But the crookedest number was an 8 at the par-5 14th where he skulled his fourth out of bounds and eventually two-putted. Hadley's 14th club has been the savior, though. At last check, he ranked second in the field in strokes gained: putting with an aggregate clip of 5.785.
Mar 27 - 7:17 PM

Chesson Hadley signed for a 1-under-par 36-35=71 following his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

The 2013-14 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year is quietly going about his sophomore season pretty much as expected. He's 8-for-13 with one top 10 and another pair of top 25s and sits 109th in the FedExCup standings. Today at TPC San Antonio, he went 5-for-10 in scoring chances with five birdies, the longest falling in from 14'3" at the par-4 17th hole. He also poured in a par save from 16-and-a-half feet at the par-4 third. Alas, he couldn't avoid two bogeys and a double, but the overall effort will do just fine on a day when red numbers were hard to find. Hadley sits four strokes off the overnight lead.

Chesson Hadley wrapped up his title defense of the Puerto Rico Open with a 5-under-par 33-34=67.

It was his first sub-70 of the week. He posted 4-under 284, which has him just inside the top 10 overall and with sole possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead. Hadley split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation during his final trot around Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. With five birdies against two bogeys, he sat 3-under through 17 before walking off with an eagle-3 at the last. The PGA TOUR sophomore will now take his talent to the Valspar Championship where he tied for 14th the week after his breakthrough in Puerto Rico a year ago.
Mar 8 - 1:18 PM

Chesson Hadley answered his opening 71 at the Puerto Rico Open with a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in his second round to post 3-under 141 at the break, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The defending champ bogeyed the first two par 3s today and sat 2-over through seven, but he finished in style. Hadley birdied four of his last 11, including the par-4 seventh and ninth holes to join Jonathan Byrd atop the leaderboard. This tournament is only in its eighth edition, but it's already seen a two-time winner in Michael Bradley (2009, 2011), so don't rule out a back-to-back version from the lanky 27-year-old.
Mar 6 - 11:27 AM

Chesson Hadley opened his title defense of the Puerto Rico Open with a 1-under-par 37-34=71.

It's always a little odd when a winner of an opposite event finds himself back the following season. It's not an indictment on the tournament, but rather a reminder that it's much more difficult to crack the field of the primary event than most realize. Hadley found 10 (of 14) fairways today but only 10 greens in regulation, so he should be pleased to walk away with a red number. He rolled in two birdies on each nine to help offset an opening bogey at the par-4 first hole and a double bogey-6 at No. 7. The 2014 Rookie of the Year signed his card today sitting just three strokes back of 2014-15 rookie and clubhouse leader Mark Hubbard.
Mar 5 - 4:26 PM

Chesson Hadley earned his maiden PGA TOUR victory at the 2014 Puerto Rico Open and returns for a chance to defend this week.

Hadley arrived at the course this week only to find his locker-room name plate misspelled. Perhaps a telling sign that it takes more than a win at the Puerto Rico Open to earn household name recognition. After starting the season with five missed cuts in 10 starts, Hadley will enjoy a trip back to this favorable venue and the opportunity to play against a weaker field. Gamers should consider him one of the favorites this week.
Mar 3 - 10:08 PM

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.
Feb 13 - 6:33 PM

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.
Feb 12 - 4:31 PM

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.
