Defending champ Bill Haas bobbed and weaved to a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in today's final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to conclude his 12th straight appearance on 19-under 269, currently T8 on the leaderboard.
Haas' bid for back-to-backs and his third CBC title overall were derailed with 3-under 69 in R3, dropping him seven places on the leaderboard after opening in 66-66. He was just three back after 36 holes, but began the finale eight in arrears to 54-hole leader Jason Dufner. The 33-year-old circled six on the card on Sunday to outpace two bogeys but didn't have enough firepower this week to contend. He ended the tourney with two eagles, four bogeys and just 19 birdies, T39 in that stat at the time he signed his card. Jan 24 - 6:50 PM

Defending champ Bill Haas fell off the pace with a third-round 3-under-par 34-35=69 at the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 15-under 201, down seven places on the leaderboard to a three-way tie for 10th-place.

After opening in twin 66s, the two-time CBC winner began day three in a five-way tie for third, three adrift of 36-hole leader Jason Dufner. Following a four-birdie against one-bogey showing on the TPC Stadium Course, he now trails Dufner by eight. The 33-year-old looked up to the task early with back-to-back birdies out of the gate, converting from 22'8" and 7'3", respectively, and then added a four-inch gimme at the par-5 fourth. He played his last 13 holes in even-par however, exchanging bogey-6 at the eighth with his final par breaker of the round from 21'11" at the par-4 10th. Haas had no other scoring chances from inside of 10 feet on 12 greens in regulation, but did drop three par putts from between eight and 11 feet.

Two-time CareerBuilder Challenge champion Bill Haas painted a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round to reach the midpoint at 12-under 132, good for a five-way tie for third and three swings back of 36-hole leader Jason Dufner.

The defending champ (and 2010 winner) shot 6-under 66 in round one at La Quinta CC and further displayed his wears in the desert with a four-birdie, one-eagle effort at the Nicklaus Tournament Course on day two. The 33-year-old was T2 after 36 holes in last year's triumph, one adrift, and was six shots back after two rounds in the 2010 playing, but that was when the tourney was 90 holes. Point is, he's in familiar territory, even as he heads to his first look at the TPC Stadium Course on Saturday, which has statistically played as the most difficult of the three courses over the first two days.

Bill Haas fashioned an opening round, 6-under-par 33-33=66 as he looks to defend his title at this week's CareerBuilder Challenge.

Haas missed the fairway on his opening hole at La Quinta Country Club. From there, the defending champion threw a wedge dart and backed it up straight into the hole for an eagle-two opener. Haas continued to miss fairways throughout the round, splitting just eight (of 14) on the day, but circled five more birdies anyway. His lone blemish came at the par-4 16th hole. Despite this year's course switcheroos, Haas continues to shine at the CareerBuilder.

Defending champion Bill Haas returns for his 12th consecutive playing of the CareerBuilder Challenge in Partnership with the Clinton Foundation.

The Wake Forest product is a six-time TOUR winner with two coming here at the CBC. The first was in come-from-behind fashion, claiming the 90-hole edition in 2010 by one shot after trailing by one entering the final round. The second came last year, where he co-lead after 54 holes, and won by one again following a 5-under 67. In addition, Haas also lost in a playoff in 2011, so that gives a glimpse into how well he defends his title here. The 33-year-old has made just two (official) starts thus far in 2015-16, posting a T33 nine weeks ago at the RSM and a T18 two weeks ago at the 32-man Hyundai TOC (71-69-70-70). In-between, he went for T5 at the 18-man Hero World Challenge.

Bill Haas heads back to Maui for his fifth appearance at this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The Wake Forest product punched his ticket with a victory at the Humana Challenge. It was his second time winning the event, and sixth overall in his PGA TOUR career. Haas posted an eighth-placed finish in his Hyundai debut but returned with disappointing 20-T23-T24 finishes in the three trips since.

Bill Haas kicks off his 2015-16 season with The RSM Classic in Saint Simons Island, Georgia.

This is Haas' first stroke-play start since finishing 26th (of 28) at the TOUR Championship, where he posted 13-over 293, 22 shots behind champion Jordan Spieth. He did win his sixth TOUR title at the end of January at the three-course rota Humana Challenge, so he checks the box for winners of multiple-course tournaments. This week's RSM, the sixth edition, incorporates a second course for the first time, the par-72 Plantation Course. The 33-year-old's record on the par-70 Seaside Course is stellar, posting a T22 last year and solo second in the 2010 inaugural. All eight rounds have been sub-70 with a scoring average of 67.50.

The 11th edition of the Presidents Cup was decided in the last match of Sunday singles during which Bill Haas defeated Sangmoon Bae 2 up, giving the United States a 15½-14½ victory over the Internationals.

It wasn't until late that the attention drifted to the anchor match at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in the final session, but that's the ebb and flow of a match-play competition with only so many points up for grabs. Alas, it was hard to watch at the par-5 last. Needing to win the hole to share the Cup, Bae failed to pitch his third onto the green. He crouched in disappointment before gathering himself for his fourth, which came to rest 16 feet and three inches from the cup. Haas was in a greenside bunker, but blasted to just 67 inches. As Haas (1-1-1) went to mark, Bae (2-1-1) scooped up his own ball and extended his hand in defeat. The U.S. is now 9-1-1 with six consecutive victories in the biennial competition. The 2017 Presidents Cup will be contested at Liberty National in New Jersey.

Bill Haas and Matt Kuchar settled for a halve with Hideki Matsuyama and Sangmoon Bae in Saturday foursomes at the Presidents Cup.

In a tussle in which neither side held more than a one-hole margin, Bill Haas' inefficiency over key putts stood out. Sitting 1 up through 12, he whiffed on a par try from just 4'5" at the par-3 13th and lost the hole. His tee ball at the par-3 17th came to rest inside 12 feet from the hole and applied pressure to the hosts, who eventually conceded after finally finding the green with their third stroke. But at the par-5 last and with an opportunity to win a full point, Haas' attempt for birdie from 17'7" was unimpressive. The Internationals walked off with a kick-in 4 to even and steal the tie. The bout wasn't without some fireworks, however. After Kuchar buried a birdie from 44'7" at the par-5 15th, Bae dropped a zero-putt birdie on top from 16'4". With one match remaining in the session, the competition is knotted at 6½.

Bill Haas preps for his third appearance at The Presidents Cup as he sets his eyes on Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea.

Long-time NCAA basketball fans are well aware of the coach's son phenomenon where the sons of head coaches seemingly take their game to levels previously unseen during March Madness. That could be the case for Haas this week as he plays the captain's son role. Bringing a career Presidents Cup record of 3-5-2, gamers should look for Haas to improve upon that record as he proves he really belongs on this team.

Bill Haas enters this week's TOUR Championship slotted 26th in the FedExCup standings.

If you ever needed evidence to cite why motivations don't matter, cite this guy. Knowing that he needed a strong start to the Playoffs to automatically qualify for the Presidents Cup, he finished T53 and T60 in the first two legs, respectively. His day, Jay, burned one of the two captain's picks available on the 33-year-old anyway. Bill Haas then rose to the occasion at Conway Farms and placed T19 to secure a spot in the field at East Lake. He's a former FedExCup champion, of course. It's already been four years since he won the season finale and benefited from the other stars aligning as Haas started that edition as the 25-seed.

Past FedExCup champ Bill Haas went bogey-free 5-under-par 32-34=66 in today's final round of the BMW Championship to conclude his seventh appearance at 10-under 274, currently T14 on the leaderboard.

Haas won the 2011 TOUR Championship in a playoff over Hunter Mahan and subsequently the FedExCup trophy to boot. He entered his debut at East Lake Golf Club that year ranked 25th in the FEC standings. Next week, he'll be back at the tournament and after today's blemish-free loop, he projects 25th in the FEC standings yet again. For today's effort, the 33-year-old circled five on the card at Nos. 5, 7, 9, 10 and 18 to finish the week with just 13 birdies, T56 in the field at the time he signed his card. However, he squared just five bogeys over the four days, T3 in that category.

Bill Haas toured Conway Farms in 3-under-par 36-32=68 in today's opening round of the BMW Championship.

Fresh off the nod as a captain's pick for the Presidents Cup, Haas made zero noise on his first 14 holes during which he surrounded a bogey-5 at the fifth hole with 13 pars. However, he closed like a trooper. The spurt was sparked by a birdie from 10'10" at the par-4 15th. After a par at the par-4 16th, he rolled in his look from 28-and-a-half feet for birdie at the par-3 17th. Finally, sitting 2 and in the rough nine yards from the cup at the par-5 18th, Haas holed out for eagle. Overall, he hit 15 greens in regulation and fanned on seven tries inside 10 feet, but he signed his card positioned just three strokes off the clubhouse lead. In a tournament with no cut, aggressive play can be rewarded. That was definitely the case for the 33-year-old late today.

Captain Jay Haas used one of his two available picks to select his son, Bill, to join the Americans at the Presidents Cup.

Bill Haas finished 11th in automatic qualifying, so he was first on the outside looking in when the window of opportunity shut on Monday. Yet, despite a strong season that has included a win (Humana Challenge), another four top 10s and yet another six top 25s, the only lock, seemingly, to make the team was Brooks Koepka, who was bypassed, anyway. So it goes. Bill Haas will be making his third appearances in as many Presidents Cups. He's 3-5-2 with losses in both tries in singles. The 33-year-old will take on Conway Farms at next week's BMW Championship slotted 27th in FedExCup points.

Bill Haas spun a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the finale of the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club to conclude at 14-under, 266, three adrift of champion Davis Love III.

After opening in 65-66-68, Haas began the day at 11-under (T10) and four back. Playing in his 11th Wyndham in Greensboro, North Carolina, the Charlotte native overshadowed one bogey with four birdies to move up four places on the leaderboard to a four-way tie for sixth. It's his fourth top 10 in the tournament in 11 attempts and second consecutive following his runner-up finish last year. The 33-year-old now boasts five top 10s on the season (21 starts) and second in his last four events (T4, Quicken Loans National). Haas striped 10 (of 14) fairways on Sunday, landed 15 greens in regulation and circled birdies at Nos. 3, 4, 8 and 15 against a lone bogey at the par-4 sixth. For the week, he totaled 17 birdies (T26 in the tournament), but squared just three bogeys to rank second in the field in that category.
