Past champ and World No. 43 Bill Haas twirled a season-low 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open to reach 7-under 206, up 51 places on the live leaderboard to T11 with third- and final-round play in progress.
After opening in twin 71s, the 2012 playoff winner was one (of 10) players to make the cut on the number, T62 on even-par. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he didn't get any of his third frame completed on Saturday, so he toured all 18 on Sunday morning. The 34-year-old circled five birdies on his first half, including three straight on holes 15-17, and camouflaged a lone bogey-5 at eight with birdies at 1, 6 and 9 the rest of the way. He converted seven conventional par breakers, two from between 16 and 24 feet, adding a pitch-in 2 at the par-3 16th. Haas entered the week with 19 of 20 rounds on the season in the red, all 20 par or better, and this is a season low, eclipsing 66 (x4). Feb 19 - 2:57 PM

Bill Haas' bogey-free 4-under-par 32-36=68 was the low round on the Stadium Course in Saturday's third-round action at the CareerBuilder Challenge. Adam Hadwin (59) was the low at La Quinta CC while Webb Simpson (66) had the low lap on the Nicklaus Tournament Course. UPDATE: Haas finished up with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 on the Stadium Course, currently up 14 spots to T18.

After opening in 68-72-68, two-time champ Haas is T32 on 8-under, nine adrift of 54-hole leader Hadwin. He birdied his first four holes in R3, beginning with a pitch-in 3 at the first (47 feet from the target) and chasing with three conventional from inside of 16 feet. That would be it for the World No. 42, wrapping up with 14 straight pars on 9 (of 14) fairways, 14 greens in regulation, and -0.067 SG: Putting.

Following a seven-year hiatus, World No. 41 Bill Haas returns for his sixth Sony Open in Hawaii.

The 34-year-old's last visit was a missed cut in 2010. Overall, he's 2-for-5 with one finish inside the top 70, a T9 in 2009. The Wake Forest alum is in the last season of full exempt status from the most recent of his six wins on TOUR, a 1-shot win at the 2015 Humana Challenge, where he was a 54-hole co-leader. He's off to a good start this season with three top-20 finishes in three starts, highlighted by a solo 4th at the WGC-HSBC Champions. The transplanted South Carolinian has put all 12 rounds in the red and ranks 6th on TOUR in scoring average at 69.135.

Bill Haas registered his best finish in a world golf championship event after securing T4 at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China with a final-round 3-under-par 34-35=69.

The American's previous best was T6 in the WGC-Cadillac Championship (2010 & 2014) so this is another forward step for Haas' curiously poor record in big events. Earlier this season he posted his first top 10 in a major thanks to T9 at the Open Championship. He arrived at 15-under 273 today after a steady lap of Sheshan International featuring four birdies against a single bogey at 15. His first three circles came at 3, 6 and 14 before he sweetened the pot with a walk-off birdie at 18. Haas, who finished eight shots behind runaway winner Hideki Matsuyama, hit just 5 (of 14) fairways today but still managed to find 14 greens in regulation (5th for GIR overall). He was T11 for Putts Per GIR this week.

Bill Haas dropped two spots on the leaderboard to T4 with a stuttering 2-under-par 34-36=70 in round three of the World Golf Championship-HSBC Champions in Shanghai to post 12-under 204 after 54 holes.

The tall American lies five back of the leader Hideki Matusyama heading into the final round after a lap of the course which failed to take advantage of a smart start in which he posted birdie at 2, 4 and 6. His first mistake was to make a bogey-six at the par-five 8th hole and he added another bogey at the par-four 11th. He took advantage of the par-five 14th to add a final birdie, but both the short par-four 16th and par-five 18th failed to yield shots. He found 14 (of 18) greens in regulation in rounds one and two, a figure that dropped to 13 on Saturday, but he ranks T3 in the field all week.

Bill Haas nudged two spots up the leaderboard to T2 after compiling a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in round two of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China to post 10-under 134 at the midpoint.

Looks like he's got the hang of Sheshan International GC now. Haas broke 70 for the first time there on Thursday when handing in a 67 and he repeated the trick today. He made his mark early with circles at 2, 3 and 5 and before slotting four straight pars. The American made another move with back-to-back birdies at 10 and 11 before dropping his only shot of the day at 13. He got it back at 16 and two pars left him three behind halfway leader Hideki Matsuyama. The six-time PGA TOUR winner upped his fairways hit count by four to 10 (of 14) today. He again hit 14 greens in regulation and is ranked T3 in that category so far.

Bill Haas crafted a 5-under-par 34-33=67 first lap of Sheshan International GC in the WGC-HSBC Champions.

The Wake Forest grad is making his fourth visit to Shanghai and is yet to crack the top 20 in all that time. But in notching his best-ever (and first sub-70) opening circuit he gives himself a chance of changing the tune. He started from the 10th tee and made good early headway with birdies at 11, 14 and 16, but gave a shot back at 17. He repeated that on the front nine ticking 3, 4 and 5 before squaring 8. But a chip-in birdie at the 9th, from short of the green, was a good way to end the day. His 67 was good enough for T5 when he signed his card. He found just 6 of 14 fairways, but improved that to 14 of 18 greens in regulation.

Bill Haas claimed the early clubhouse lead at the Safeway Open following a 2-under-par 34-36=70 to reach 8-under 136 at the midpoint.

The Wake Forest product went out early and battled the toughest of the elements, getting plastered with a light but steady rain for most of the round. He fought through the elements to split nine (of 14) fairways and land 14 greens in regulation. It was a very solid round, but he got stuck playing against some tough conditions. Haas will now have plenty of time to rest before round three as today's afternoon wave will spill over into Saturday morning. The 34-year-old is positioned nicely to make a weekend run at what would be his seventh career PGA TOUR win.

Bill Haas ripped through Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course on his way to a 6-under-par 34-32=66 during the opening round of the Safeway Open, positioning himself four strokes off the early pace set by Scott Piercy.

The Wake Forest product split just four (of 14) fairways but still managed to avoid all but two bogeys. The key was great recovery play with his irons. Despite the lack of accuracy off the tee, he still landed 16 greens in regulation, gaining 2.621 strokes approaching-the-green. His putter helped out in a big way, also. The 34-year-old splashed home three putts from outside 18 feet, the longest being a 60'10" birdie bomb at the par-3 seventh. With three of his six career wins coming in the Golden State, Haas is a serious threat to keep his name in the mix and contend all week. Haas also ended the day as the low score from the afternoon wave, with only Peter Malnati and Hudson Swafford reaching 5-under for the day.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, past FedExCup champion Bill Haas painted a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the BMW Championship to post 4-under 212, up 31 places on the live leaderboard to T26 and matching Billy Horschel and Adam Scott for the low rounds in the clubhouse.

The 34-year-old won the 2011 TOUR Championship and the FedExCup crown in his first time advancing to the Playoffs finale. He didn't make it back to East Lake in 2012, but has in each of the last three seasons. The Wake Forest alum has a lot of work to do if he wants to keep that streak alive, entering the week 46th in FEC points. After opening in 73-72, he was a distant T57 on 1-over, but began the long road back up the leaderboard with four birdies and an eagle-3 against a lone bogey-5 at the fourth, 3-putting from 53'10". Haas played the four par 5s in 5-under, highlighted by a 33-footer for a '4' at the fifth and a 22'8" eagle at the 15th, adding a birdie-2 at the 13th. He hit a week-best 14 greens in regulation and posted a tidy 3.606 SG: Putting.

Bill Haas fashioned a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-32=65 in today's third round of the Wyndham Championship to throw 11-under 199 on the board, up two places to T9 with play still in progress.

The Charlotte, North Carolina, native is now bogey-free over his last 38 holes. Back in June, he played his final 61 holes blemish-free at the QL Nat'l en route to a T3. The 34-year-old circled birdie-2s at Nos. 3, 7 and 12, each from between six and seven feet, before adding a 25-incher for birdie at the par-5 15th and a 35-incher for birdie-3 at 17. He's 9-for-9 in scrambling over his last 36 holes and kept the card clean with a 21-foot eight-inch par save at the 11th.

Bill Haas carved out a bogey-free 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 6-under 134, up one place to T7 with play still in progress.

The 34-year-old went off No. 10 tee and opened with eight straight pars before breaking the ice with a chip-in birdie-3 on the 18th from 27'7" away. He missed birdie tries of 7'3" at the 10th, 5'9" at the 11th, but did save par from 6'8" at the par-4 14th. Seven more pars awaited the Wake Forest alum after the break, including a 6'7" par save at the fourth, before carding a lone conventional birdie from 8'7" at the par-4 eighth. He hit 12 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.917 putts per GIR, but gaining 1.824 strokes around-the-green, going a perfect 6-for-6 in scrambling.

Bill Haas navigated a familiar Sedgefield Country Club en route to a 4-under-par 32-34=66 during round one of the Wyndham Championship.

Haas cruised along with four tap-in pars before reaching the easy par-5 fifth. It was there he stuck his 190-yard approach to 2'2" for another tap-in, this time for eagle. He backed it up with a 7'1" birdie roll at the par-4 sixth, easily his longest putt on the entire round. The Wake Forest added two more birdies (13 inches at the par-3 12th and 3'2" at the par-5 15th) before swallowing a lone bogey at the par-4 17th. Through day one, Haas ranks third in strokes gained tee-to-green but just 111th in strokes gained putting. If the flat stick heats up, he could add a fifth top 10 to his Sedgefield CC resume.

Bill Haas back-pedaled to a birdie-less 4-over-par 39-36=75 in today's final round of The 145th Open for a four-day total of 2-under 282, down six spots into a three-way T9, 18 shots in arrears of champion Henrik Stenson.

The 34-year-old, playing his seventh Open and his 28th overall major championship appearance, finally has a top-10 finish. His previous best was T12 two times, at the 2011 PGA Championship and the 2015 Masters. It's also the Wake Forest alum's sixth top 10 of the season in 19 starts. After opening in 68-70-69, he began the finale on 6-under in solo third, five back of Phil Mickelson and six adrift of 54-hole leader Stenson. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he didn't muster a single par breaker, squaring four bogeys.

Bill Haas fashioned a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in today's third round of the 145th Open Championship to reach 6-under 207, up three spots to solo third with play still in progress.

After opening in 68-70, the 34-year-old began the third frame T6 on 4-under, six shy of 36-hole leader Phil Mickelson. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 10 greens in regulation, requiring just 25 putts and posting his third straight sub-par round for the first time in his seventh appearance. Haas outpaced bogeys on Nos. 5, 9 and 16 with birdies on holes 1, 4, 6, 8 and 16, taking advantage of each of the three par 5s. He'll play out of the penultimate pairing in the final round and will be looking for his first top-10 finish in a major in his 28th try.
