Anders Hansen will test out Olympic Club in the 2012 U.S. Open.

Hansen tested the waters in the U.S. leading up to the Masters, where he finished T24. He finished T17 at the Accenture Match Play, followed by a T29 at Doral and a missed cut at the Shell Houston Open. His lone U.S. Open experience came when he posted a T55 in 2007 at Oakmont.

Anders Hansen posted his lowest career round in four trips to Augusta National with a final-round 4-under-par 37-31=68 at the Masters.

In his previous three visits to Augusta National, he did not find a tee time on the weekend. In his final round, he circled seven birdies, but offset those with three bogeys. He managed to hit 83.9 percent of his fairways for the week, but also had to deal with five three putts. He is not scheduled to compete in the RBC Heritage.

Anders Hansen signed for a 5-over-par 38-39=77 following his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

The Dane completed his opener on Thursday. He split 12 (of 14) fairways but went 0-for-13 in birdie opportunities, instead swallowing three bogeys and a double. He incurred three penalties during his round as well, including two at the par-5 seventh where he rinsed his drive, dropped and then sent his approach into the water along the right side of the hole. Surviving the cut is unlikely at this point, so expect him to work on his game in preparation for next week's Masters.

Anders Hansen will be looking to replicate an effort similar to his 2011 third place tie at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship this week at Doral.

Hansen has been a cut-making machine on the European Tour. He also managed a third place finish in the 2011 PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club. Hansen has a knack for showing up on high profile leaderboards, so don't be shocked if he makes a little noise this week.

Anders Hansen dismissed K.T. Kim 5 and 3 in the Player Bracket in the opening round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

To give you an idea of how the vagaries of match play can throw a curveball, Hansen shot even par and won seven holes. He started par-birdie, good enough for a 2-up advantage after two. He was 1 up through 10 and then stepped on Kim's throat with wins at 11, 12 and 13 before a concession at 15 ended the match. This is just the second time in six appearances that Hansen has advanced to the second round. Tomorrow's opponent will be the winner of Rory McIlroy v. George Coetzee.

Anders Hansen is 3-under-par 68-69=137 at the midpoint of the PGA Championship, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Hansen is the first to sign for two rounds in the 60s at Atlanta Athletic Club's Highlands Course. He's circled four birdies in each round, but just one on a par 5. The Dane has had four runner-up finishes worldwide in the last nine months, but has never had a top 10 in 20 previous starts in major championships. He made news in June for opting not to tee it up at Congressional for the U.S. Open, instead opting to rest and spend time with his family in advance of what was four straight starts on the European Tour.

A report at GolfOnline.DK states that Anders Hansen has chosen to rest for two weeks before resuming his full schedule on the European Tour.

The Dane qualified for next week's U.S. Open, but will not be competing. According to his agent, Karsten Aabrink, and translating from the website, Hansen will be in Munich the following week (June 23) for the BMW International Open, and then Paris for the Alstom Open de France on June 30. Reports of an injury are unfounded as Hansen is merely balancing his schedule as he sees fit.

Anders Hansen has qualified for the Masters for ranking inside the top 50 of the latest Official World Golf Rankings.

Hansen is currently 42nd in the OWGR. He's the only golfer inside the top 50 that needed the special exemption awarded following this weekend's slate of five tournaments worldwide to earn a tee time at the season's first major. The Dane ended 2010 ranked 70th in the world, but cashed in five of six starts, including a T2 in Dubai and T3 at Doral. He has an 0-for-2 record at Augusta National.

Denmark's Anders Hansen defeated Ireland's Padraig Harrington 4&2 in the first round of the HSBC World Match Play at the Wentworth Club in England.

Hansen led two-up after the morning 18 and stretched his lead to five-up in the afternoon session before coasting to a victory over Harrington, who made nine bogeys and seven birdies on the day. Hansen will move on to meet the winner of the Henrik Stenson - Woody Austin match, which was all-even and suspended (due to darkness) with just one hole to play.

Anders Hansen won the first playoff hole, after carding a final round of 69, at the BMW PGA Championship.

Hansen was in a playoff with Justin Rose and both were on the green on first playoff hole, the par-5 18th, in three strokes. Hansen sank an 18-foot putt for the birdie, but Rose missed his 15-foot putt to extend the playoff. The win is Anders second at this event, and besides the $973,700 check he receives a five-year exemption on the European Tour, a three-year exemption to the British Open and a spot in next month's U.S. Open.

It was nice to see the good round out of Anders because he has had a brutal start to the year. He has a lot of talent, so he is worth watching to see how he does this week.

Hansen tied for fourth place at the PGA Tour's final stage of qualifying school and finished the 2006 season at No. 33 on the European Tour's Order of Merit.

Anders Hansen earned his PGA Tour card at Q School and has status on both the PGA and European tours this year.

It sounds like he's planning on spending most of his time in the states and could be a deep sleeper this year.
