Hunter Mahan coasted to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.
Mahan returned to action this week after withdrawing during his final round at Bay Hill two weeks ago with what was classified as an injury in his lower back. He later revealed that it was a hip issue causing the pain. "I didn’t feel very good and it wasn’t going to get any better," he said about the WD. "I didn’t like that recipe. I was concerned about a few weeks afterward. You kind of have to protect yourself at times." The 2012 champ at the Golf Club in Houston hit 15 greens but didn't make anything longer than 5'8", but he was perfect inside 10 feet. Mahan holed four birdies before ending his round with a bogey-4 at the ninth hole. He's four strokes off the overnight lead. Apr 3 - 9:20 PM

Hunter Mahan is included in the published field of next week's Shell Houston Open.

After he withdrew from last week's stop at Bay Hill due to a lower back injury, we relayed that he was scheduled to compete at Redstone, but today's commitment deadline solidifies it. Surely an update on his status will be provided given he won the SHO in 2012 and has another four top 11s. He's third all-time in earnings at the event.

Hunter Mahan withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational during the final round, citing a lower back injury.

Mahan was playing alongside Cameron Tringale in the third group off and had just bogeyed the par-4 first hole. Mahan then found the green with his tee ball at the par-3 second before calling it quits at 4-over through 55 holes. Given the early hour of his final round tee time, it's obvious that this week hasn't gone as planned for Mahan. After opening with a solid 2-under-par 70, he stumbled with a 75 in the second round and a 74 in the third. Leading into his week at Bay Hill, his form was solid. He tied for ninth in both the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship and the WGC-Cadillac Championship. According to the tournament website, his next scheduled appearance is the Shell Houston Open on April 3. The official commitment deadline will fall at 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, March 28.

Hunter Mahan stubbed his toe in a final-round 4-over-par 37-39=76 at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Mahan played in the penultimate pairing alongside Tiger Woods, but managed just two birdies on his round. Mahan's highlight came at the par-4 18th, holing a 55'4" birdie putt to sneak inside the top 10 at 2-over 290. His mistakes were many in the finale, with four bogeys and a double bogey on the par-5 18th marring his attempt at a victory.
Mar 9 - 6:49 PM

Hunter Mahan fought for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship and joins Jason Dufner in the clubhouse lead at 2-2-under 214.

Two of Mahan's four birdies were erased on the very next hole, and his birdie at the par-4 16th was erased on the 18th. The lone survivor was a birdie on the par-5 eighth. He found 10 of 14 fairways, which proved to be four more than his second round, but gave back strokes relative to the field with the flat stick for the first time all week. Given that each of his three bogeys followed par attempt from outside 10 feet, it's possible the putter didn't cost him as much as it would seem. While it appears he will trail Patrick Reed entering the finale, he is easily within striking distance.

Hunter Mahan rode a bit of a roller coaster en route to a 2-over-par 36-38=74 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

He split six (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation on a treacherous Trump National Doral in challenging wind. Mahan managed to grab a pair of birdies going out, dropping in tries from 23 feet and 12'5" at the 12th and 16th holes, respectively, the second of which pushing him to 1-under on the round. He also rolled in a 61-inch eagle putt at the par-5 eighth, but reached 4-over just before that conversion thanks to three bogeys and a triple at the par-4 fourth where he found water off the tee. Nevertheless, he signed his card as the last of four to share the 36-hole lead at 1-under 143.

Hunter Mahan posted a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to take a share of the clubhouse lead.

He split only four (of 14) fairways but found 12 greens in regulation and limited the negative to a bogey-5 at the seventh hole. He circled four birdies, all of which from inside 10 feet. In fact, all but one of his conversions began their roll inside that range. The exception was a birdie try that missed from 9'4" at the par-5 eighth hole.
Mar 7 - 10:34 AM

Hunter Mahan exhausted Richard Sterne 2 up in the Snead Bracket in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Pretty good match here. Sterne staked the early lead, winning the second and third holes. He sat on it until Mahan took the par-5 eighth with birdie, and then evened with a par at the par-4 ninth. Sterne regained control with a 2 at the par-3 12th, but Mahan eventually countered with a birdie-3 at 15. After trading pars at the par-3 16th, Mahan escaped with a win via par at the par-4 17th to establish a 1-up margin. He added a birdie-3 at the last to solidify his fourth consecutive berth in the third round. He'll tangle with Graeme McDowell in a rematch of their singles tilt at the 2010 Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor.
Feb 20 - 5:48 PM

Hunter Mahan posted a 3-and-2 victory over Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño in the Snead Bracket in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Mahan parred the entire front nine, but it didn't matter as he and the Spaniard were all square at the turn. Mahan then found a groove, winning Nos. 10 and 11 with birdies. Fernández-Castaño cut the deficit in half with a birdie-4 at 13, but Mahan regained the 2-up lead with a birdie at the par-4 15th. A 3 at the par-3 16th not only won the hole, but it secured the match. Mahan's overall record is 16-5 in this tournament. He'll battle Richard Sterne in the second round.
Feb 19 - 5:59 PM

Hunter Mahan stumbled to a 2-over-par 36-37=73 in his second round of the Northern Trust Open to post 1-over 143 at the midpoint.

For the time being, that's just inside the cut, but he won't know until Saturday morning if he'll have a tee time at Riviera in the third round since play was suspended for darkness for the second straight day. Mahan hit 12 greens in regulation today but his only par breaker was one of the highlights of the day. After driving just left of the green at the par-4 10th, he wielded his putter from 23 yards away and curled the ball some 8-10 feet right-to-left for an eagle-2. Elsewhere, he squared two bogeys and a double and fanned on three attempts inside eight feet.
Feb 14 - 8:58 PM

Hunter Mahan could only muster an even-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and finished alone in sixth at 7-under 280.

Mahan had hopes of challenging for the win, if not at least picking up a runner-up finish, but three bogeys to just one birdie over his final 10 holes ruined a bogey-free 2-under start and his chances. He was visibly frustrated down the stretch, clearly signaling that his swing was not up to standards. He gained 1.738 strokes with the putter.
Feb 9 - 7:37 PM

Hunter Mahan patiently posted a 1-over-par 36-36=72 at Monterey Peninsula in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, joining Tim Wilkinson in the clubhouse lead at 7-under 208.

Mahan narrowly missed some early birdie putts early, settling for pars on his seven holes. He then swallowed bogeys on the eighth, ninth and 13th holes, finding himself in a free fall. He stopped the bleeding with a birdie on the par-3 14th, then added a second circle on the card with a birdie at the par-5 16th before parring in. It seems likely he will be several strokes behind Jimmy Walker when the dust settles, but Mahan's late birdies has him primed to contend for the win in the final round.
Feb 8 - 8:08 PM

Hunter Mahan backed up his opening 68 at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with another in his second round to post 8-under 136 at the midpoint, one off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

After Thursday's bogey-free tour of Pebble Beach, Mahan took on Spyglass Hill today. He squared two bogeys but converted six birdies, half of which on the par 5s. Look for him to capitalize on his one shot at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course in the third round. Five of his last six rounds dating back to the WM Phoenix Open are 68 or lower.
Feb 7 - 8:17 PM

Hunter Mahan twirled a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the host course.

Mahan split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation with ball-in-hand. He converted four birdies, three of which on par 5s, including a 15'7" beaut to close out the walk at the picturesque 18th hole. Bogey-free cards are often aided by a gutty par save, and his was no different. He got up and down from a greenside bunker behind the par-4 fourth hole, pouring in the putt from 10'4". Spyglass Hill will test his solid form on Friday.
Feb 6 - 7:50 PM

Hunter Mahan made a valiant run at the Waste Management Phoenix Open title, but his 3-under-par 34-34=68 and subsequent 14-under 270 is a stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Mahan was cruising under the radar for much of his round, circling a birdie and 11 pars to start the day. He then picked off birdies at the par-5 13th and 15th holes, finding the putting surface in two on both. When he rolled in a 13'2" birdie on the par-3 16th, it looked like he might steal the title. The hope was short-lived, has he bogeyed the short par-4 17th after his drive failed to clear a fairway bunker. Consider him a threat at Pebble Beach next week, as he is a past runner-up.
