Bill Haas enjoyed a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Quickens Loan National to post 11-under 202, three shots back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Troy Merritt.
The 2013 QLN champ began Moving Day at 4-under (T35) and seven shots adrift. He circled six birdies and an eagle to smother a lone bogey at the par-3 16th to jump 28 spots on the live leaderboard. The 33-year-old found the short grass 10 (of 14) times and peppered 16 greens in regulation, registering 5.676 strokes gained: tee-to-green at last check. His split included three conversions from outside 16 feet, including a chip-in birdie from the fringe on the par-3 14th and a 42'5" prayer that rolled in for eagle at the par-5 fifth. Haas won the Humana Challenge back in January but has posted just two top 10s over his next 14 events, the last coming at THE PLAYERS (T4). He's also missed his last three cuts entering the week.

Bill Haas heads into the 144th Open Championship in search of his first top 10 in a major championship.

Haas continues to be an anomaly in majors as a golfer of his cachet should have multiple top 10s after 23 starts. He was close to turning that trick at this year's Masters, ultimately settling for a T12. Haas missed the cut in 2010, the last time The Open rota stopped at the Old Course. He remains a safe option for gamers, but his upside has proven to be limited in majors.

Bill Haas has never finished inside the top 20 at a U.S. Open but looks to change that as he takes on Chambers Bay this week.

Haas backed up his win at this year's Humana Challenge with seven top 25s in his last 11 starts. That includes a career-best T12 at the Masters, so his T23 at the 2011 U.S. Open is certainly not unattainable. While his record in major championships is surprisingly poor for a golfer of his cachet, his form is undeniable. Haas enters with cuts made in 39 of his last 42 starts and that should earn consideration in all formats this week.
Jun 15 - 8:45 PM

Bill Haas readies for his 10th playing of the Memorial and enters the week 17th in the FedExCup standings.

Haas didn't finish better than T30 in his first seven loops at Muirfield Village GC, but he's bagged a T4 and T8 in his last two editions, so he's figured something out. The 33-year-old is 11-for-13 on the season with seven top 25s, including his victory at the Humana Challange in January. Haas is coming off a disappointing T68-finish at the Wells Fargo Championship in his home state of North Carolina, but he's come up big in the season's higher-profile events. This includes a T4 at THE PLAYERS, T12 at the Masters, and a T7 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.
Jun 3 - 9:58 AM

Bill Haas submitted a third-round 4-under-par 34-34=68 to post 9-under 207 and sits just one stroke off the 54-hole lead at THE PLAYERS.

Haas, who has finished in the top 25 only once in eight previous visits to the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, circled five birdies against a lone bogey en route to three-way tie for second heading into Sunday. It could have been better yet, but the 32-year-old struggled with proximity to hole, averaging 37'2" and converting on just five of 14 par breaker opportunities. Haas opened with five consecutive two-putt pars before breaking through from 19'4" for birdie on the sixth, his only conversion from outside eight feet on the day. He found the short grass off the tee 11 (of 14) times and went 3-for-4 in scrambles but racked-up 29 putts on his round.
May 9 - 7:56 PM

Bill Haas enjoyed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of THE PLAYERS.

It's his lowest score in 26 competitive rounds on TPC Sawgrass and moved him to 5-under 139, one stroke off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and went 3-for-3 in scrambling with five birdies. His longest dropped in from 13'9" at the par-4 first hole. This will be his fifth payday in nine appearances. He's fared no better than T25 in 2012.
May 8 - 1:06 PM

Bill Haas recorded a 3-and-1 victory over Henrik Stenson in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Both played well, but Haas was just a little better. He scored bogey-free 5-under-par with five birdies, three of which led to wins, including at the par-3 17th hole where the match concluded. They were all square twice but Stenson never sat on a lead. The Swede finishes the week at 1-2. Haas is 2-1, but he was mathematically eliminated when he lost to John Senden (2-0) in the second round. The fourth member of this group, Brendon Todd, reached 0-2 on Thursday.
May 1 - 5:05 PM

Bill Haas closed out Brendon Todd 3 and 2 in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

This battle among the Americans took a while to get going. They opened with pars at the gettable par-5 first hole. After pars at the par-3 second, both bogeyed the par-4 third. Having enough of that, Haas then circled birdies at Nos. 4, 5, 6 and 8, all for wins. Todd fought back to go 2-down after 13, but Haas took the 14th with birdie. The match concluded with birdies at the par-4 16th. With this win in the bank, Haas has to like his chances of escaping this group as he faces struggling John Senden on Thursday. Todd will continue his debut in the tournament in a second-round tilt with Henrik Stenson.

With inclement weather expected this afternoon in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, the final round of the RBC Heritage began at 7:30 a.m. ET

Tournament organizers sent threesomes off split tees with the leaders going off No. 1 at 9:30 a.m. Bill Haas went out in the first group off the first tee and carded a 2-under-par 33-36=69 to post 6-under 278. At last check, he sat T30 on the leaderboard. It was almost predictable, too. Since opening the season with a T22 at The McGladrey Classic, Haas has alternated finishes outside the top 45 with top 25s. He shared 12th place at last week's Masters, so this week's effort projects to break the drought without a top 45 every other week, but it's hardly impressive on its own.
Apr 19 - 12:07 PM

Bill Haas capped his week at Augusta National with a 2-under-par 37-33=70 to post 6-under 282.

He walked off positioned two strokes off the 72-hole clubhouse lead and outside the top 10 on the leaderboard, so it appears that he'll remain without a top 10 in a major in 26 appearances. Nevertheless, he's still a stalwart in fantasy circles. Today's loop featured five birdies against one bogey and a double. He shot par or better in every round and will head to the RBC Heritage with confidence.
Apr 12 - 5:43 PM

Bill Haas settled for an even-par 36-36=72 in today's third round of the Masters.

Haas stood over 14 opportunities to pour in a par breaker today, so he signed his card with some disappointment. He exchanged three birdies with three bogeys before landing at 4-under 212, two strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead. If he wants to point to his primary challenge, it's the par 5s, surprisingly enough. He's converted birdies on half of the 12 attempts, but also squared two bogeys.
Apr 11 - 6:33 PM

Bill Haas signed for a 1-under-par 37-34=71 following his second round of the Masters.

He'll take it given he landed only 11 greens in regulation and squared four bogeys today. Haas opened with a birdie at the par-4 first hole, so that was kind of like stealing. He added four birdies, including on both par 5s on the inward nine for the second straight day. His last birdie was a virtual kick-in at the last. It cleared the stage for playing partner Ben Crenshaw to finish alone in his last of 44 appearances at Augusta National. Haas will enter the weekend at 4-under 140, 10 strokes back of the 36-hole lead.
Apr 10 - 6:39 PM

Bill Haas shot 3-under-par 33-36=69 in his opening round of the 79th Masters and sits just two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Haas missed the cut last week in Houston, but that yielded a little more time to prep for the season's first major. He capitalized on 16 greens in regulation with five birdies, including three on the par 5s. Bogeys at the par-4 14th and 18th holes tainted the round, but only minimally. He's perfect in five trips to Augusta National but has no better than a pair of T20s (in his last two visits). Today's score is second in his 21 rounds only to last year's opening 68.
Apr 9 - 3:29 PM

Bill Haas looks to tackle Golf Club of Houston's Tournament Course at this week's Shell Houston Open.

Haas got off to a sour start when introduced to GC of Houston, missing four straight cuts starting in 2006. First impressions aren't everything as he returned in 2013 with a T10 and compiled a T37 last year. He has been hit or miss since his January win at the Humana, parlaying a pair of top 20s with a pair of finishes outside the top 70. The six-time PGA TOUR winner still deserves serious consideration any time he make an appearance.
Apr 1 - 8:06 PM

Bill Haas could only muster a 2-over-par 38-36=74 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Haas ends his week at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course safely inside the top 10 at 2-under 286. He went his first 17 holes of the day without a birdie, squaring three bogeys. After hitting his drive on the par-4 18th just beside a fairway bunker on the par-5 first hole, he hit an incredible approach to 5'11" for an unlikely closing birdie. This is his first top 10 since winning the Humana Challenge in January.
