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). May 3 - 8:24 PM

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.
Mar 25 - 5:04 PM

42-seed Bill Haas outlasted 46-seed Kevin Na 1 UP in Round of 16 action at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will face 14-seed Phil Mickelson (4-0-0) in the quarterfinals later this afternoon, while Na departs with a 2-2-0 overall record.

Haas was the Group 11 winner (2-1-0), advancing out of the Group Stage with a 6-hole playoff win, while Na was the Group 6 winner with the same record and also in sudden death. For the first time this week, Haas had to go the distance, with neither opponent reaching more than a 2 UP advantage, which is where Haas found himself thru nine holes. On the inward half, Na battled back to all square, winning the 13th and 14th with birdie-3s, but the Wake Forest alum won 15 with par and that's where the match would end with each players finishing with a final birdie at 16 and two pars.

Every scenario fell perfectly into place for Bill Haas, as he defeated K.T. Kim, first in regular play (4-and-2), and then in a play-off, to qualify for the second round of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin CC.

Victory over the Korean was no guarantee of progression for the American; he also required Danny Willett to wake from his week long slumber (0-2) and defeat Russell Knox. Should that happen a play-off would result, but concentrating first on what he could control, Haas found himself in a tight struggle which was all square through seven holes (Haas had claimed the 3rd with birdie, Kim answered in kind at the 6th). Kim’s bogey at No. 8 handed Haas an edge and late in the round he pressed clear, draining from 12’4" at 12 and 19’1" at 13 for birdies and winning holes. At this stage Haas would have known Willett had taken Knox down 4-and-2 and he took advantage, sharing holes until time had run out for Kim. The play-off required 6 holes and Haas clinched it with a birdie-4 (after holing from off the green to make half at the 2nd). He moves forward to a round of 16 tie with Kevin Na.
Mar 24 - 3:41 PM

Bill Haas coasted to a 6-and-5 victory over Danny Willett during round two of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, earning his first point of the week.

Haas and Willett both lost their opening matches on Wednesday and matched scores thru 4 today. From there, Haas put his foot on the gas with back-to-back birdies and then won a third straight hole with a par at the seventh. The defending Masters champ looked out of sync from the start and circled just one birdie all day. The match ended when Willett found the water at the par-4 13th and conceded the hole. The aftermath of this match is that Willett has no chance of advancing to the Round of 16 while Haas will need to win tomorrow's match against K.T. Kim to have any hope.

Past champ and World No. 43 Bill Haas twirled a season-low 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open to reach 7-under 206, up 51 places on the live leaderboard to T11 with third- and final-round play in progress.

After opening in twin 71s, the 2012 playoff winner was one (of 10) players to make the cut on the number, T62 on even-par. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he didn't get any of his third frame completed on Saturday, so he toured all 18 on Sunday morning. The 34-year-old circled five birdies on his first half, including three straight on holes 15-17, and camouflaged a lone bogey-5 at eight with birdies at 1, 6 and 9 the rest of the way. He converted seven conventional par breakers, two from between 16 and 24 feet, adding a pitch-in 2 at the par-3 16th. Haas entered the week with 19 of 20 rounds on the season in the red, all 20 par or better, and this is a season low, eclipsing 66 (x4).
Feb 19 - 2:57 PM

Bill Haas' bogey-free 4-under-par 32-36=68 was the low round on the Stadium Course in Saturday's third-round action at the CareerBuilder Challenge. Adam Hadwin (59) was the low at La Quinta CC while Webb Simpson (66) had the low lap on the Nicklaus Tournament Course. UPDATE: Haas finished up with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 on the Stadium Course, currently up 14 spots to T18.

After opening in 68-72-68, two-time champ Haas is T32 on 8-under, nine adrift of 54-hole leader Hadwin. He birdied his first four holes in R3, beginning with a pitch-in 3 at the first (47 feet from the target) and chasing with three conventional from inside of 16 feet. That would be it for the World No. 42, wrapping up with 14 straight pars on 9 (of 14) fairways, 14 greens in regulation, and -0.067 SG: Putting.
Jan 22 - 8:01 AM

Following a seven-year hiatus, World No. 41 Bill Haas returns for his sixth Sony Open in Hawaii.

The 34-year-old's last visit was a missed cut in 2010. Overall, he's 2-for-5 with one finish inside the top 70, a T9 in 2009. The Wake Forest alum is in the last season of full exempt status from the most recent of his six wins on TOUR, a 1-shot win at the 2015 Humana Challenge, where he was a 54-hole co-leader. He's off to a good start this season with three top-20 finishes in three starts, highlighted by a solo 4th at the WGC-HSBC Champions. The transplanted South Carolinian has put all 12 rounds in the red and ranks 6th on TOUR in scoring average at 69.135.

Bill Haas registered his best finish in a world golf championship event after securing T4 at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China with a final-round 3-under-par 34-35=69.

The American's previous best was T6 in the WGC-Cadillac Championship (2010 & 2014) so this is another forward step for Haas' curiously poor record in big events. Earlier this season he posted his first top 10 in a major thanks to T9 at the Open Championship. He arrived at 15-under 273 today after a steady lap of Sheshan International featuring four birdies against a single bogey at 15. His first three circles came at 3, 6 and 14 before he sweetened the pot with a walk-off birdie at 18. Haas, who finished eight shots behind runaway winner Hideki Matsuyama, hit just 5 (of 14) fairways today but still managed to find 14 greens in regulation (5th for GIR overall). He was T11 for Putts Per GIR this week.

Bill Haas dropped two spots on the leaderboard to T4 with a stuttering 2-under-par 34-36=70 in round three of the World Golf Championship-HSBC Champions in Shanghai to post 12-under 204 after 54 holes.

The tall American lies five back of the leader Hideki Matusyama heading into the final round after a lap of the course which failed to take advantage of a smart start in which he posted birdie at 2, 4 and 6. His first mistake was to make a bogey-six at the par-five 8th hole and he added another bogey at the par-four 11th. He took advantage of the par-five 14th to add a final birdie, but both the short par-four 16th and par-five 18th failed to yield shots. He found 14 (of 18) greens in regulation in rounds one and two, a figure that dropped to 13 on Saturday, but he ranks T3 in the field all week.

Bill Haas nudged two spots up the leaderboard to T2 after compiling a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in round two of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China to post 10-under 134 at the midpoint.

Looks like he's got the hang of Sheshan International GC now. Haas broke 70 for the first time there on Thursday when handing in a 67 and he repeated the trick today. He made his mark early with circles at 2, 3 and 5 and before slotting four straight pars. The American made another move with back-to-back birdies at 10 and 11 before dropping his only shot of the day at 13. He got it back at 16 and two pars left him three behind halfway leader Hideki Matsuyama. The six-time PGA TOUR winner upped his fairways hit count by four to 10 (of 14) today. He again hit 14 greens in regulation and is ranked T3 in that category so far.

Bill Haas crafted a 5-under-par 34-33=67 first lap of Sheshan International GC in the WGC-HSBC Champions.

The Wake Forest grad is making his fourth visit to Shanghai and is yet to crack the top 20 in all that time. But in notching his best-ever (and first sub-70) opening circuit he gives himself a chance of changing the tune. He started from the 10th tee and made good early headway with birdies at 11, 14 and 16, but gave a shot back at 17. He repeated that on the front nine ticking 3, 4 and 5 before squaring 8. But a chip-in birdie at the 9th, from short of the green, was a good way to end the day. His 67 was good enough for T5 when he signed his card. He found just 6 of 14 fairways, but improved that to 14 of 18 greens in regulation.

Bill Haas claimed the early clubhouse lead at the Safeway Open following a 2-under-par 34-36=70 to reach 8-under 136 at the midpoint.

The Wake Forest product went out early and battled the toughest of the elements, getting plastered with a light but steady rain for most of the round. He fought through the elements to split nine (of 14) fairways and land 14 greens in regulation. It was a very solid round, but he got stuck playing against some tough conditions. Haas will now have plenty of time to rest before round three as today's afternoon wave will spill over into Saturday morning. The 34-year-old is positioned nicely to make a weekend run at what would be his seventh career PGA TOUR win.

Bill Haas ripped through Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course on his way to a 6-under-par 34-32=66 during the opening round of the Safeway Open, positioning himself four strokes off the early pace set by Scott Piercy.

The Wake Forest product split just four (of 14) fairways but still managed to avoid all but two bogeys. The key was great recovery play with his irons. Despite the lack of accuracy off the tee, he still landed 16 greens in regulation, gaining 2.621 strokes approaching-the-green. His putter helped out in a big way, also. The 34-year-old splashed home three putts from outside 18 feet, the longest being a 60'10" birdie bomb at the par-3 seventh. With three of his six career wins coming in the Golden State, Haas is a serious threat to keep his name in the mix and contend all week. Haas also ended the day as the low score from the afternoon wave, with only Peter Malnati and Hudson Swafford reaching 5-under for the day.
