Bill Haas stumbled to a 4-over-par 37-38=75 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open.
He converted three birdies, including at attempt from just inside 12 feet at the par-4 10th, but Haas went just 3-for-9 in scrambling en route to five bogeys and a double. His bogey at the par-3 16th measured 10'10" and he added a par save from 14'7" at the par-4 seventh. Given that his second child is due in eight days, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if he misses the cut -- he sat outside the top 100 on the leaderboard at last check -- but it would feel unfamiliar to him. While he withdrew during last year's RBC Heritage with a wrist injury, Haas hasn't officially missed a cut since the Deutsche Bank Championship during Labor Day weekend in 2013. Feb 19 - 7:57 PM

Bill Haas remains committed to this week's Northern Trust Open even though his wife is very pregnant.

OK, you're either pregnant or you're not, but timing is everything in our world. Haas' better half is due on Friday, Feb. 27, but he's a regular and former champ (2012) at Riviera Country Club. If he doesn't withdraw, this will mark his 10th consecutive appearance dating back to his rookie season of 2006. But it's that threat of a phone call at any time that may preclude him from finishing this edition. "I'll have my phone and probably be checking it every couple of holes," he said on Tuesday. "I assume somebody would contact the tournament or the TOUR and a rules official would probably find me before I even check my phone to know if anything was going on. ... "[My wife] said, ‘Don't unpack your suitcase. Just keep it packed up ready to go just in case.’ Yeah, I'll certainly make the family decision if I have to."

Bill Haas turned in a 2-under-par 35-35=70 for his work in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open and is 7-under 209 with 54 holes in the books.

Haas bagged threee birdies, including a 20'11" effort on the par-4 15th, to go with just one bogey on his lap around Torrey Pines. He's already picked up one win in California at the Humana Challenge just two weeks ago. Now just two off the clubhouse lead, he could snare another trophy with a strong final round.
Feb 7 - 4:51 PM

Bill Haas steadied a 5-under-par 33-34=67 at PGA West's Palmer Private to reach 22-under 266, securing his second victory at the Humana Challenge.

Haas got off to a shaky start, missing the green at the par-3 fourth that led to a bogey. He immediately bounced back with a 12'5" birdie roll on the par-4 fourth. The Wake Forest product added an eagle on the par-5 sixth and three more birdies along the way. Finally, he arrived on the 18th tee needing a par to win the tournament, but a poor drive resulted in an awkward lie just outside a fairway bunker. He recovered nicely and found himself two-putting for his sixth career PGA TOUR title. With this win, Haas secures his spot into the PGA Championship and World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Bill Haas settled for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 at Nicklaus Private at PGA West, reaching the 54-hole mark of the Humana Challenge with a share of the current clubhouse lead at 17-under 199.

After 46 holes of blemish-free golf, Haas finally squared his first bogey of the tournament at the par-3 11th hole. The Wake Forest product hit 16 greens in regulation but his putter's conversion rate held him back to just four birdies on the day. He now has seven straight Humana rounds of 67 or better. It is unlikely Haas will enter Sunday with the clubhouse lead still intact but he will surely be one of the favorites to take home the hardware.

Bill Haas toured La Quinta Country Club in bogey-free, 34-29=63 in today's second round of the Humana Challenge to reach the midpoint in bogey-free, 14-under 130, one off Matt Kuchar's 36-hole pace.

Haas loves himself this tournament. He won here in 2010, and then lost in a playoff in his title defense. And while he missed the cut in 2013, today's score is his 33rd consecutive under par. He missed only three greens in regulation while picking off nine birdies. That set included seven in a row beginning at the par-4 second hole. Through 36 holes, he's 10-for-10 in scrambling and has circled 14 birdies. Haas will finish his rotation at Nicklaus Private at PGA West on Saturday.

Bill Haas gets his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season back on the rails at this week's Humana Challenge.

Even though he hasn't competed since a T48 in the WGC-HSBC Champions, gamers should still be drooling at the possibilities Haas offers this week. He ranks third in all-time earnings in this event, with a win in 2010, a playoff loss in 2011 and a T6 in 2014 among the highlights. Expect this tournament to always hold a sentimental spot on his schedule, as it was the site of his first TOUR win. He has managed to break par in 43 of his 46 rounds and been over par just once.
Jan 21 - 2:23 PM

Bill Haas teed it up twice on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15 before the holiday break.

The returns were relatively forgettable for a player of his caliber, tying for 22nd at The McGladrey Classic ahead of a T48 in the WGC-HSBC Champions. All of that adds up to a 104th ranking in the FedExCup standings. Haas went winless on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14 for the first time since 2009, so expect him to have a sense of urgency to get back in the winner's circle this season. His father, Jay, is the captain of the U.S. Presidents Cup team. There is little doubt that Bill will want to compete for his father's squad in South Korea, meaning a little extra inspiration this season.

Bill Haas toured Sheshan International Golf Club in 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Haas hasn't placed worse than T22 in his last six starts; he totaled 17 top 25s last season after piling up 16 in the compressed scheduled of 2013. Needless to say, that form made the trip to China. He circled two birdies on each nine to outbalance one bogey-5 on either side to finish three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Bill Haas crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his second round of The McGladrey Classic to post 5-under 135 at the midpoint and sit four strokes off the 36-hole lead.

Haas is the newest member of the Wake Forest University Hall of Fame having been inducted last weekend. His dad, Jay, went on to win the Champions Tour event in North Carolina on Sunday, so the family never ceases to made headlines. Bill hit 16 greens in regulation at Seaside today and rolled in four birdies, three of which stretching 10-17 feet. He squared only one bogey on Thursday. He hasn't played in this tournament since the inaugural edition in 2010 when he painted four red numbers en route to a solo second, so it was just a matter of getting back on the bike this time around. Either that or he's eager to steal the label of latest Haas winner away from Jay.

Bill Haas added The McGladrey Classic back to his schedule and makes his second start in Sea Island, Georgia later this week.

Haas finished alone in second in 2010 but has skipped the three events at the Seaside Course since. There is plenty of room for speculation as to why he chose to start the 2014-15 season this week. For starters, he's coming off his first season without a win since breaking through in 2010. That could have him hungry to get back in the winner's circle. His father, Jay, is the Presidents Cup captain in 2015. Perhaps he's hoping to bag some points in an effort to make that squad on merit and prevent putting his father in the awkward situation of potentially burning a captain's pick on him. Either way, Bill is among the elite in the field and his only history here was excellent.

Bill Haas chased his opening 68 at the TOUR Championship with a 1-over-par 35-36=71 to post 1-over 139 at the break.

Haas split eight (of 14) fairways, but hit only nine greens in regulation at East Lake Golf Club today. Neither of his birdies were gimmes. The first was a bit of a gift in that he holed out from 13 yards from well off the green at the par-3 second. His conversion at the par-4 14th traveled 16'6" before tumbling in. Haas also squared three bogeys, including at the par-5 15th where he didn't find the putting surface until his fourth stroke. He's five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Bill Haas posted a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the TOUR Championship, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The 2011 winner at East Lake and FedExCup champion went 5-for-5 in scrambling today, but he walked off 18 having three-jacked the par-3 green from just outside 10 feet. Prior to that, he circled three birdies, but his longest conversion of the round dropped for par from 11'8" at the par-3 sixth hole. At last check, Haas led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 3.135.

Bill Haas hoisted the hardware at the 2011 TOUR Championship and returns for this week's edition.

After finishing the regular season with a runner-up finish at the Wyndham Championship, Haas has kept the pedal to the metal, finishing 16th or better in each leg of the Playoffs. His win in 2011 catapulted him from 25th to 1st, so he is certainly within striking distance as he enters this week ranked 16th in the FedExCup standings. The consistency and course history converge to make Haas a reliable option for gamers this week.

Bill Haas posted a 2-under-par 32-37=69 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to end his tournament at 9-under 275.

Haas started out fast, scoring a 13'4" eagle on the par-5 second and following that with back-to-back birdies at TPC Boston. After a bogey at the par-4 sixth, he bounced back with a 12'11" birdie at the par-5 seventh. Rather than keep up the pace, he played his final 11 holes with nine pars and two bogeys. He began his week 21st in the FedExCup standings and it would seem that he will improve his position marginally.
