Hunter Mahan slowed his pace in round two of the Farmers Insurance Open but still managed a 2-under-par 34-36=70 to enter the weekend on 6-under 138.
The California native led the field in strokes gained putting in round one (+3.292) but couldn't maintain that pace today. Moving over to the North Course at Torrey Pines, Mahan traded four birdies with a pair of bogeys (both on par 3s) today. Currently playing out of the Past Champions category, Mahan relied on a sponsor's invite to crack the field this week. The 35-year-old will now try to replicate his opening-round putting magic as he returns to the South Course for the final two rounds. Jan 26 - 6:31 PM

Hunter Mahan pieced together a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during round one of the Farmers Insurance Open, tossing his name into contention on day one.

Relying on a sponsor's invite to crack the field, the California native is taking full advantage of this opportunity so far. Starting his week on the South Course at Torrey Pines, Mahan split seven (of 14) fairways en route to 11 greens in regulation. His short game was crucial in recording this round, splashing home four putts from outside 10 feet, including a 24'2" birdie bomb at the par- 3 third hole. He circled birdies on all four of the par 5s, only one of them being the tap-in variety though. Entering the week, Mahan owned a 10-for-13 record here at the Farmers Insurance Open including 10 straight cuts made.

Hunter Mahan continues his attempt at a career revival as he enters 2018 with only Past Champion status in his corner.

The six-time TOUR winner has finished 183rd and 182nd in the FedExCup standings over the last two seasons. He's gone 19-for-48 during that time. Now, he'll take a step down in status, so starts will be tougher to come by in 2018. During the fall, Mahan posted a 3-for-5 record with a pair of top 20s. Currently positioned at 74th in the FedExCup race, Mahan is off to a great start as he attempts to play his way back into full status. With a pair of top 20s fresh in his mind from the fall, gamers should consider Mahan in weekly formats when the TOUR schedule resumes in 2018.

Sponsor invite and World No. 661 Hunter Mahan is back for his second OHL Classic at Mayakoba after a missed cut last year (by six) with rounds of 72-74. UPDATE: Mahan MC by two on 1-over 70-73=143.

The 35-year-old is playing this season on Past Champion status after finishing 182nd in the FedExCup standings. He posted just two top 25s among 10 cuts made in 26 starts. The California native is 2-for-3 on the season, already with two top 25s, including a T18 two starts ago at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms and a T13 at the Safeway. He missed the cut last week at the Shriners (by one) on a sponsor exemption, interrupting a run of three straight top-25 finishes dating back to T16 at the regular-season-ending Wyndham 12 weeks ago.

Hunter Mahan kept his foot on the gas in round two of the Wyndham Championship, carding a 5-under-par 33-32=65 to vault inside the top 5 with a two-day tally of 10-under 130.

Entering the week ranked 197th in the FedExCup standings, Mahan needs a podium finish just to have a chance at retaining his TOUR card and cracking the FedExCup Playoffs. So far, so good, for Mahan who has traded 10 birdies and an eagle with just two bogeys through 36 holes. A hot putter has been the key asset for the Texas resident, who has gained 5.353 strokes putting on the week (6th in the field at the time he signed his card). Mahan is playing the final season on his five-year exemption from winning the 2012 WGC-Match Play, and his game has seen a dip over the last two seasons. The veteran hasn't been inside the top 15 after R2 of an event since the WGC-HSBC Champions in October of 2015.

Past champ and World No. 889 Hunter Mahan fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to wrap on 6-under 274, up 12 places to T16 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Mahan finished T17.

The 35-year-old won his first of six TOUR titles here in 2007 (playoff). He's not won since the 2014 Barclays, but this is his first top-25 finish since T19 at the no-cut 2015-16 WGC-HSBC Champions in November, 2015 (85 weeks and 39 starts ago). It's the Oklahoma State product's eighth top 25 at the Travelers in 16 appearances, first since T24 in 2013. It should be noted that two of his career-best rounds on TOUR (in 1,218 career rounds) have taken place at TPC River Highlands, including a career-best 61 in R4 of the 2012 edition to finish T11. Mahan, making his 20th start of the season, posted rounds of 68-71-68-67, carding one eagle and 16 birdies against 10 bogeys and one double. His previous best was T52 at the Wells Fargo five starts ago.

Hunter Mahan is leaking oil ahead of a home game at this week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational in Fort Worth, Texas.

The Dallas resident is in a rare situation this year since he could potentially lose his TOUR card if he doesn't find some form soon. Mahan has been a staple on the TOUR since 2004 but finds himself searching for his game at the moment. Since the start of last season, he is 14-for-38 and he currently ranks outside the top 200 in the FedExCup race. Mahan's last top 30 came way back at the WGC-HSBC Champions in November of 2015. Perhaps a semi-home game could spark some form for Mahan this week, but gamers shouldn't hold their breathe. His track record at Colonial CC reads as 9-for-13 with three top 30s.

Dallas resident and World No. 739 Hunter Mahan makes final preparations for this week's AT&T Byron Nelson in Irving, Texas, and arrives at 210th in the FedExCup standings. UPDATE: At 3-over 75-68=143, Mahan missed the cut by one shot.

The Oklahoma State product celebrates his 35th birthday (May 17th) at the Nelson. This is his ninth appearance and is 6-for-8 with a best of T39 last year, where he was T8 thru 36 holes (68-64) but played the weekend in even-par with twin-70s. The California native was once ranked as high as No. 4 in OWGR after his sixth (of seven) TOUR titles at the 2012 Shell Houston Open. His most recent win came at the 2014 Barclays and he's recorded just four top 10s in his last 64 starts since, none since T4 at the 2015 Deutsche Bank. Mahan is 5-for-15 on the season with a best of T52 in his last start two weeks ago at the Wells Fargo (72-73-71-74).

World No. 570 Hunter Mahan arrives at Coco Beach Golf and Country Club for his Puerto Rico Open debut.

The 34-year-old is in his 14th season on TOUR and making his 363rd career start. He's a 6-time winner, most recently at the 2014 Barclays, and is playing his last season of fully exempt status from his win at the 2012 WGC-Match Play, which is this week's main event. The Dallas resident is 3-for-10 so far in 2016-17 with three finishes outside the top 50 and checks in at 197th in the FedExCup standings. He ranks 198th on TOUR in birdie average (2.93) and 190th in scoring average (72.787).

Six-time PGA TOUR winner Hunter Mahan prepares for his seventh Shriners Hospitals for Children Open where he's 3-for-6 with a best of T14 in 2009.

More recently, the 34-year-old missed the cut here last year (by two) in his first appearance since a T50 in 2010. He's in the field from his latest win at the 2014 Barclays and arrives off a MC at the Safeway (by eight) on rounds of 73-76. Dating back to last season, where he finished a career-worst 183rd in the FedExCup standings and missed the Playoffs for the first time, the Dallas resident has missed the cut in eight of his last nine events, cashing only a T70 (of 73 players) at the Travelers. He had just one top 25 last season in 22 starts, a T19 at the no-cut WGC-HSBC nearly a year ago. Mahan's full-exempt status from his win at The Barclays (as well as the 2012 WGC-Match Play) expires at the end of this season.

Hunter Mahan carded an even-par 34-36=70 during round two of the Wyndham Championship, compiling 1-over 141 on the week to miss the cut and also miss out on the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time in his career.

There are a total of 22 golfers that have cracked the FedExCup Playoffs field every year since the inaugural 2007 edition. Mahan will not be on that list next year as he entered the week 182nd in the FedExCup race and earned zero points with today's missed cut. The 34-year-old has played in the most Playoff events in PGA TOUR history (35 of 36) with his lone miss coming at last year's TOUR Championship. Of the 22 golfers that have previously made the Playoffs since 2007, there are five others who failed to make it back this year: Jeff Overton, Rory Sabbatini, Ian Poulter, Nick Watney, and Pat Perez.

At 173rd in the FedExCup standings and 178th in the Official World Golf Ranking, six-time PGA TOUR winner Hunter Mahan preps for his debut in the Barbasol Championship. UPDATE: With rounds of 74-70=144, Mahan missed the cut by four strokes.

The 34-year-old has qualified for the FEC Playoffs all nine years since their inception in 2007. He's played the most Playoff events in TOUR history (35 of 36) and has made it to the TOUR Championship eight of nine years. The Dallas resident, whose last win was the 2014 Barclays, did not qualify for the U.S. Open at Oakmont, breaking a string of 36 consecutive major championships appearances, and extends that streak to two after not qualifying for The Open at Royal Troon. Mahan, who made a caddie change in Dec. 2015, is just 8-for-17 this season and has only one finish inside the top 30, a T19 at the no-cut HSBC Champions back in November. He ranks 19th on TOUR in SG: Putting but 193rd in SG: Tee-to-Green.

Hunter Mahan turns his attention to Colonial Country Club for his 13th appearance in the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

The newly minted 34-year-old (May 17th) was the 32nd-ranked player in the world when he arrived at Colonial CC last year (finished T53). He checks-in this week at No. 134. To say the six-time TOUR winner is mired in a slump is an understatement. He's has one top 25 this season on 15 starts -- a T19 in a no-cut event -- and ranks 159th in the FedExCup standings. Mahan made a caddie change the first week of December but it hasn't helped, posting one top-50 finish (T43, Farmers) in 12 events since and missing six cuts. He has one top 25 in 12 attempts at Colonial (T10/2011).

Hunter Mahan preps for his 10th start at the Shell Houston Open as he turns his attention toward the Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course.

The 2012 SHO champion arrives with a 6-for-9 record on the season, ranking 143rd in the FedExCup standings. Besides his 2012 win, he also sports four other top 15s since the event moved to the GC of Houston. Gamers may be turned away by the Dallas resident's recent form, but his course history makes him a very juicy sleeper this week in Humble, Texas.

Hunter Mahan returns to the Valspar Championship after an eight-year absence from the tournament.

Mahan hasn't played the Valspar since a T23 in 2008 when it was known as the PODS Championship. It was a personal best -- and only top 25 -- in five appearances. The 33-year-old, who made a caddie change at the beginning of December, is in the final season of full-exempt status from the last of his six TOUR titles at The Barclays in 2014. He made three starts in the fall, where he posted a season-best T19 at the WGC-HSBC Champions, and since the calendar flipped to 2016, he's gone just 2-for-4 with a T43 at the Farmers his best showing. Mahan ranks 140th in the FedExCup standings and 123rd in scoring average at 71.307.
