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.

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.

Bill Haas heads to a familiar Quail Hollow Club ahead of this week's PGA Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Charlotte native didn't grow up in the city, but still considers this a semi-home game. His father is a member at Quail Hollow, and might be able to give him a few pointers on the course changes that took place since last year. Despite his knowledge for the course (and area) his record here is spotty with seven missed cuts in 14 starts appearances. His notable finishes at Quail Hollow include a T4 (2006) and solo 4th (2011). More recently, Haas has a pair of top 15s over his last five starts. The Wake Forest product needed 28 major championship appearances before picking up his first top 10 (T9, 2016 Open Championship). He wasted no time getting a second top 10, grabbing a T5 at this year's U.S. Open. With the top-10 hurdle in the rearview mirrory, perhaps Haas is ready to take it to the next level and hoist the Wanamaker Trophy.

Past champ and World No. 38 Bill Haas carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to wrap on 3-under 277, up seven places to T11 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Haas finished T13.

The 2013 winner at Congressional CC was making his ninth appearance and posts a fourth top 25 and potentially a fourth top 10, joining his win and T4 in 2015 and T3 last year. It'll be his 11th top 25 of the season in 17 starts, fourth straight, and possibly a fourth top 10, arriving off T5 at the U.S. Open, which was a career best in 31 majors. After opening in 69-70-71, the Wake Forest alum began T18 on even-par, two adrift of the overnight top 10. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, he overshadowed bogeys at holes 8 and 10 with five birdies at 2, 5, 9, 13 and 17, posting just 0.088 SG: Tee-to-Green but 3.392 SG: Putting.

World No. 46 Bill Haas fashioned a 4-under-par 36-33=69 in the final round of the 117th U.S. Open to post 10-under 278, up five spots into a three-way T5, six shy of champion Brooks Koepka.

This was the 35-year-old's ninth U.S. Open, second top 25 and first top 10. His previous best was T23 in 2011 (Congressional). It was his 31st major appearance, 10th top 25 and just a second top 10, brushing aside a previous-best T9 at the 2016 Open Championship (Royal Troon). While just a second top 10 in a major, it was Haas' seventh consecutive made cut. After opening in even-par 72, he chased with 68-69-69, squaring just two bogeys over his final 55 holes and just four for the week, No. 1 in that stat. The Wake Forest alum conjured eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 2.130 strokes around-the-green. He silenced a lone bogey-5 at three with four birdies at Nos. 2, 11, 16 (from 21'5") and 18, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 2.021 SG: Putting. This is Haas' 11th top 25 of the season in 16 starts and third top 10.

World No. 46 Bill Haas tacked on a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the 117th U.S. Open for a three-day total of 7-under 209, up two places to T11 with play still in progress.

The 35-year-old found 12 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, camouflaging a lone bogey-5 at four (failed scramble) with four circles at Nos. 1, 5, 7 and 14, posting 1.813 putts per GIR and 0.582 SG: Putting. At 92.86 percent, he's currently T1 in driving accuracy thru 54 holes (39/42), and currently T1 in GIR at 85.19 percent (46/54). The Wake Forest alum's conversions were all from 10 feet and in, needing a pedestrian 32 total putts to get around.

World No. 46 Bill Haas enjoyed a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the second round of the 117th U.S. Open to post 4-under 140, up 36 places on the live leaderboard to T9 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With R2 play completed, Haas' 68 was one of only three blemish-free laps while Chez Reavie and Hideki Matusyama had the low rounds with 65s.

This is the 35-year-old's ninth U.S. Open with one previous top 25, a T23 in 2011 (73-73-68-71). Today's lap was his 26th career round in the U.S. Open and matches that 68 in 2011 for his best. The Wake Forest alum is making his 31st overall major appearance with one prior top 10, a T9 at the 2016 Open Championship. He kicked off with a two-birdie two-bogey 72 on 13 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, and striped all 14 fairways in R2 and hit 15 GIR again, the current leader in driving accuracy at 96.43 percent (27/28). Haas circled four birdies at Nos. 1, 2, 7, and 12, two from between 10 and 15 feet, adding a long of 27'8" at the par-4 12th. He posted 1.733 putts per GIR and 2.612 SG: Putting, needing 29 total putts.

World No. 43 Bill Haas fashioned a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational for a three-day total of 4-under 206, up two places to T9 with play still in progress.

This is the 34-year-old's eighth appearance and is now 7-for-8 after kicking off in twin 69s. He has three previous top-25 finishes and one top 10, a T8 in 2011 (67-67-71-69). The Wake Forest alum found nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0-436 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 0.960 around-the-green. He squared bogey-5s at 3 and 12, the former a 3-putt from 59'7", and circled four birdies at 1, 7, 9 and 15, all from between seven and 19 feet. The North Carolina native posted 1.750 putts per GIR and 1.945 SG: Putting.

World No. 41 Bill Haas contests his 14th Wells Fargo Championship, this one at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, North Carolina, and checks in at 23rd in the FedExCup standings.

The last time the TOUR played in Wilmington was in 1957; the Azalea Open won by Arnold Palmer, a Wake Forest product. Haas is a Wake Forest alum, so that's definitely a story line. The first 13 editions of the WFC were at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, where Haas was born, and he made seven cuts but missed six. He had sporadic success there, posting four top 25s and two top 10s, both 4th-place finishes, most recently solo 4th in 2011. In his last five however, he's MC'd three with a best of T44 in 2014. The South Carolina resident has seven top 25s this season in 11 starts with two top 10s, both doubling as top 5s, and both at WGC events (3rd, Match Play; T4, HSBC Champions). His last two show T36 (Masters) and a MC (by six) at the Heritage (71-76).

42-seed Bill Haas rallied to a 2-and-1 win over 54-seed Hideto Tanihara in the consolation match of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and claimed 3rd place with an overall record of 5-2-0.

This was Haas' seventh Match Play with a previous-best T9 last year where he won his Group but lost in the Round of 16. It was his 28th overall WGC event and eclipses a previous-best T4 at this season's HSBC Champions. The 34-year-old bounced back from a 3-and-2 loss to Jon Rahm in the morning semis. He was 1 DOWN thru four holes against the Japanese first-timer but squared the match with birdie-3 at five. Tanihara moved back to 1 UP with an ace at the par-3 seventh, and 2 UP at the turn, winning the ninth with par. Haas leveled the contest claiming the 10th and 11th, the latter with birdie-2 (from 28 inches) after a fortuitous bounce off the hill. He lost the 12th (concession) but moved back to 1 UP with par wins at 13 and 14, and closed out at 17 with par while Tanihara 3-putted from 37'4" for bogey.

42-seed Bill Haas upended 14-seed Phil Mickelson 2-and-1 in quarterfinal action of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and advances to the Final Four against 21-seed Jon Rahm, while Mickelson departs his 13th Match Play with a 4-1-0 record and a T5, tying his previous best in 2004.

Haas never trailed in the contest, taking a 1 UP lead with an 8-footer for birdie at the par-4 first. It was all square one time, after the par-4 second, when the Hall of Famer won with par. The Wake Forest alum took the lead (for good) on the very next hole, with another birdie-3, and circled the fourth and fifth, both from inside of six feet to go 3 UP. The lead would stay the same thru nine before Lefty trimmed the margin to 2 DOWN with birdie at 10, and 1 DOWN with par at the 12th. Haas moved to 2 UP with birdie-3 at 15 and for the first time this week, Mickelson had to play the par-5 16th. He had an eagle try from 10'4" to win the hole, but slid by right. The duo headed to the par-3 17th with Haas clinging to a 2 UP lead and Haas ended it after a conventional 2-putt par.
