Bill Haas moves on to the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide this week looking to build on his momentum from a week ago.
Haas snapped an ugly three-event missed cut streak with a 14th-place finish at the Fort Worth Invitational. There hasn't been a lot to like about his game this season, as he isn't strong off the tee, he has been extremely inaccurate from the tee box and he ranks 113th on TOUR in Scoring Average (71.183). The only thing which has saved Haas this season has been his work in the Scrambling and Putting departments or he would be completely lost. Wait to see some longer-term consistency from Haas before investing too heavily in him in DFS play. May 30 - 3:23 PM

World No. 77 Bill Haas enjoyed a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the RBC Heritage to conclude on 9-under 275, up five spots to a season-best T7.

The South Carolina resident, who was a passenger in a serious car accident back in February, records his first top 10 of the season in 10 events and first since a back-door T10 at the Dell Technologies during last year's FedExCup Playoffs. He improves to 7-for-14 at the RBC with three top 25s, bettering a T14 in 2016. After kicking off in 69-66-71, the Wake Forest alum began T12, six back of leader Ian Poulter. Playing out of the sixth-to-last threesome, with eventual champ Satoshi Kodairi (66), he hit nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 1.668 strokes approaching but gaining 2.068 around-the-green. The 35-year-old carded five birdies at holes 1, 5, 6, 13 and 15, taking some luster off with bogey-5 at 10 (3-putt from 42'11") and a 1-putt double bogey-6 at 11. He registered 1.636 putts per GIR and 1.999 SG: Putting with 25 total putts.

Bill Haas overcome a big blemish en route to a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during round two of the RBC Heritage, good for a share of eighth place on the live leaderboard.

The South Carolina resident is making his 14th appearance at this event and is now 7-for-14 in his career. He is still searching for his first top 10 here at Harbour Town Golf Links. He's off to a good start this week, largely due to his strong putting performance. Today, he splashed home three putts from outside 20 feet. The highlight was an eagle-bomb from 22'7" at the par-5 fifth hole. That help offset a double bogey at the par-3 14th hole. Making his 10th start of the season, Haas picked up a T17 in his first start but hasn't found a top 25 since.

World No. 71 Bill Haas authored a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round of the Valspar Championship to reach 1-under 141, up 54 places to T14 with play still in progress.

The morning wave on Friday is still coming in but Haas is the first to go blemish-free on Day 2 and just the third of the week thus far. He found nine (of 13) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.488 strokes around-the-green and 2.727 tee-to-green. The Wake Forest alum carded a birdie-4 at hole 1 from 14'11" and an eagle-3 at 14 from 32'3". He registered 1.818 putts per GIR and 1.592 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. This is the South Carolinian's 10th Valspar with three prior top 25s and one top 10, a playoff loss two tries ago in 2016 where he was the 54-hole leader by one.

Bill Haas will tee it up for the first time since the tragic car accident that took place ahead of the Genesis Open, turning his attention toward Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course for this week's Valspar Championship.

Haas was the passenger in a fatal car crash that resulted in the loss of his family friend, Mark Gibello. The Wake Forest alum walked away with a deep bruise on his left leg and soreness in his ankle. It will likely be an emotional week at Innisbrook, with this being his first time returning to competition since the accident. In the past, we've seen golfers like Vaughn Taylor have a career revival after a near-death experience but each situation is surely going to be different. Looking to play it safe, gamers should tread lightly with Haas and then remember to live each day to the fullest.
Mar 5 - 1:22 PM

Bill Haas was taken to the hospital Tuesday night after being involved in a car accident near the host course of this week's Genesis Open. He has withdrawn from the event, returning home to the Carolinas.

Haas was the passenger in a Ferrari that clipped an SUV (driven by actor Luke Wilson who did not sustain serious injuries) and then collided with a BMW. The driver of the Ferrari has not been identified but they were pronounced dead at the scene. Haas and a 50-year woman (BMW driver) were both taken to the hospital, in serious condition. UPDATE: Todd Lewis of Golf Channel has reported that Haas was released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. There were no broken bones but Haas did report some pain and swelling in his legs.

First-round leader and World No. 65 Bill Haas styled a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a 54-hole total of 11-under 202, up 14 places on the live leaderboard to T5, and matching Beau Hossler for the early clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Haas is T8, three shy of leader Rickie Fowler. UPDATE #2: Haas shot 2-over 74 in R4, finishing T26 on 8-under 276, and dropping to 1-for-8 when leading/co-leading after 18 holes.

After kicking off in 64-72, the 35-year-old began T19 on 6-under, four adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Rickie Fowler and Bryson DeChambeau. He hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.936 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.619 tee-to-green. The Wake Forest alum squared three straight bogey-5s at holes 8, 9 and 10, outpaced by eight birdies at 2-4, 11-13, 15 and 17, three from between 10 and 34 feet and adding a pitch-in 2 at 12 from 24'1" away. He recorded 1.615 putts per GIR and 1.299 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.
Feb 3 - 5:38 PM

Overnight leader and World No. 65 Bill Haas stumbled to a 1-over-par 37-35=72 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, falling 10 spots on the live leaderboard to T11 on 6-under 136, three adrift of 36-hole clubhouse leader Daniel Berger.

The 35-year-old opened with bogey-free 64 to lead by one over five players. It was his eighth 18-hole lead/co-lead in 347 career events, and so far, is 1-for-7 converting (2010 Viking Classic, now Sanderson Farms). In Haas' seven previous R1 leads/co-leads, his R2 scoring average was 71.86, so today's lap mirrors his former efforts. On six (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, he mustered two circles at the par-5 15th (two putts from 55'10"), and from 34 inches at the drivable par-4 17th, outbalanced by double bogey-7 at 3 and bogey-5 at 14. The Wake Forest alum lost strokes in four of five strokes gained sub-categories and 2.323 total at the time he signed his card. He posted a pedestrian 1.929 putts per GIR and -1.404 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts.
Feb 2 - 3:58 PM

Bill Haas caught fire with the flat stick en route to a 7-under-par 33-31=64 during round one of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, separating from the field to grab sole possession of the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Haas has a two-shot lead over five players.

The Wake Forest product kept a clean card today but it wasn't all rainbows and butterflies. Throughout the round, he needed three par-savers from outside six feet to keep his snowball rolling. That was no problem for Haas today who was splashing home putts from all over the place. The longest was a 28'7" birdie putt at the par-4 second hole but the most notable came five holes earlier when he sank a 19'1" eagle putt. Fast starts have not been a thing for Haas lately, as this is the first time he's inside the top 10 thru R1 since October of 2016 (WGC-HSBC) and it's his first time leading after R1 since the 2014 Masters. Overall, it's his eighth career first-round lead/co-lead, converting just one of those into victory (2010 Viking Classic).
Feb 1 - 7:45 PM

Bill Haas returns to the Palm Springs area for an event he's won twice, prepping for this week's CareerBuilder Challenge.

The all-time money winner at the CBC, Haas scooped up victories here in 2010 and 2015. On top of that, he is 12-for-13 overall, finishing inside the top 35 in 11 of those cuts made. Despite the constant shuffling of the course rotation here, Haas doesn't seem to mind since he's performed well regardless of the courses in play. On a week where course history has little merit, Haas is one of the few golfers that stands out above the crowd in terms of tournament history. Gamers should give him a strong look in all formats.
Jan 15 - 6:19 PM

World No. 56 Bill Haas went 2-for-3 in the fall portion of the wraparound schedule, missing the cut at The RSM Classic and cashing a T62 at the WGC-HSBC Champions and a T17 at the Safeway Open.

The Wake Forest alum is a six-time TOUR winner in 343 career events but not since the 2015 Humana Challenge 74 starts ago. He finished 35th in the FedExCup standings last season, missing the TOUR Championship for a second straight year following a T53 at the BMW Championship, which dropped him from 30th in FEC points to 35th. Overall, the 35-year-old and 2011 FEC Champion, recorded 12 top 25s among 20 cashes in 25 starts but only four top 10s, highlighted by a T5 at the U.S. Open and a solo 3rd at the WGC-Dell Match Play. The last time he's led or co-led after any round was as the 54-hole leader (by one) at the 2016 Valspar, eventually finishing P2 after a 1-over 72. Following Haas's MC at the RSM six weeks ago, he dropped out of the Top 50 in OWGR for the first time since the second week of 2011.

World No. 39 Bill Haas orchestrated a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the Safeway Open for a three-day total of 10-under 206, up one place to T7, two shy of 54-hole clubhouse leader Bud Cauley and four back of the leader on the course Tyler Duncan, who's playing the 18th.

The 35-year-old landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.997 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.005 around-the-green. He squared two bogey-4s at holes 2 and 15 (failed scrambles), outpaced by five birdies at 5, 9, 12, 14 and 18, all from inside of nine feet. The Wake Forest alum posted 1.667 putts per GIR and -0.461 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. He's most recent of six TOUR titles was the 2015 Humana Challenge in La Quinta, California.

World No. 39 Bill Haas torched the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa to the tune of a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 during round two of the Safeway Open, staking a very early claim of the 36-hole clubhouse lead on 7-under 137.

The Wake Forest product had an up-and-down opening round, trading five birdies with five bogeys. He added two more bogeys today but erased all of those bogeys on day two. The key asset was his flat stick as he caught fire and splashed home four putts from outside 23 feet. That was good for 5.270 strokes gained putting at the time he entered the scorer's tent. It's unlikely we see him replicate this putting performance over the weekend, or come anywhere near it for that matter. Luckily, he does have room for improvement in the ball-striking department, currently ranked T116 in fairways hit and T27 in GIR percentage. With three of his six career wins coming in the Golden State, he definitely feels comfortable on the West Coast.

Bill Haas saved his best for last this week at the Dell Technologies Championship, closing with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 to walk off TPC Boston at 10-under 274 for the week, good for a spot inside the top 15.

Haas was making his 12th appearance at TPC Boston this week, but it took him four days to fully capitalize. He opened with an even-par 71 before improving each round (71-70-68-65). Today his round was all set up with good iron play, hitting 15 greens, three more than his next-best round this week. Haas would also catch fire with the flat stick, most notably sinking a 20'11" birdie bomb at the par-3 eighth hole. This will go in the books as his fifth top 15 at TPC Boston while also catapulting him inside the top 30 on the projected FedExCup standings. Next up for Haas is the BMW Championship in two weeks where he owns finishes of T28 (2013) and T19 (2015).

World No. 37 Bill Haas double bogeyed his final hole en route to a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship and at 1-under 209, missed the secondary 54-hole cut by one shot.

A total of 85 pros made the 36-hole cut of 3-under 147 so a second cut of low 70 and ties took place after 54 holes (2-under 208). Haas, a pre-tourney 22/1 outright, opened in 73-64, one of 20 players to make the cut on the number, and similar to Day 1, had little success. On nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, he outbalanced two birdies with two bogey-5s (both 3-jacks) and the closing double bogey-6. The Wake Forest alum, who had finished in the top 25 in his last five visits, three of those top 10s, posted a dismal 2.091 putts per GIR and took 31 total putts. Others without a Sunday tee time: 209- Gonzalo Fdez-Castano; Aaron Baddeley; Stuart Appleby; Dru Love .. 210- Ken Duke; Zac Blair; Padraig Harrington .. 211- Seamus Power; Jonathan Randolph .. 212- Brett Stegmaier.
