Hunter Mahan opened his title defense of The Barclays with an 8-over-par 39-39=78.
Yikes. Of course, Mahan emerged victorious at Ridgewood Country Club and this year's edition of the tournament is being contested at Plainfield CC, but still. He split only five (of 14) fairways and hit nine greens in regulation today. While his stroll started nicely with a birdie conversion from just outside 12 feet at the par-4 10th hole, Mahan would go on to square two bogeys and four doubles. His score would have been worse, too, if not for another birdie from 28'10" at the par-4 17th hole and a pair of par saves from outside 13 feet, including a connection from 21'1" at the par-4 fifth. This is his highest aggregate since a second-round 79 at Trump National Doral in March. The 33-year-old is the only golfer to qualify for and compete in every FedExCup Playoffs event in its brief history, but that streak is in jeopardy. He's 77th in points, so if Mahan doesn't turn it around on Friday in New Jersey and/or find a groove at TPC Boston next week, he's toast. Aug 27 - 12:13 PM

Hunter Mahan slots 75th in the FedExCup standings heading into the 97th PGA Championship at Whistling Straits and is paired the first two rounds with England's Lee Westwood and South African Ernie Els.

Mahan carded just five birdies last week at the WGC-Bridgestone (none in round two) against 14 bogeys and three doubles to finish 72nd of 77 players. In nine starts since back-to-back T9s at the Masters and the WGC-Cadillac Match Play, he hasn't posted anything better than T39 (AT&T Byron Nelson). He missed the cut at THE PLAYERS and the U.S. Open and finished T49 at The Open Championship. The 33-year-old recorded his only top 10 in nine PGA Championship appearances last year at Valhalla (T7). He went T39 in the 2010 edition at Whistling Straits on rounds of 74-71-68-75.

Hunter Mahan tees it up for an 11th time in the Open Championship and enters the week 71st in the FedExCup standings.

Mahan is 7-for-10 at The Open with two tops 10s: T9/2013 and T6/2007. He finished T37 in the 2010 edition at St. Andrews on rounds of 69-76-71-71 for a 1-under-par aggregate of 287, 15 shots adrift of champion Louis Oosthuizen. The 33-year-old has cashed 14 times on 17 starts to his season with six top 25s, the last stroke-play top 25 came as a T9 at the Masters, where he closed in 68-67. He followed with a T9 at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play, making it to the Round of 16. In six starts since, he's only cracked the top 40 once (T39/AT&T Byron Nelson), missing his last two cuts, including by two at the U.S. Open. Mahan has an 8:00 a.m. tee time on Thursday with England's Luke Donald and Sweden's Carl Pettersson.
Jul 14 - 11:04 PM

Hunter Mahan fashioned a 5-under-par 31-33=64 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Mahan outbalanced two bogeys with seven birdies at TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas today. At 7-under 132, he's only two shots off the pace of the 36-hole tri-leaders. The 14th hole played as a par 3 today (instead of a par 4), and he birdied it, but today's aggregate is easily his lowest on the course and in 52 rounds this season.
May 29 - 10:33 PM

Hunter Mahan coasted yet again in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship with a 5-and-4 triumph over Matt Kuchar.

Efficient. That's the operative word to describe Mahan's success this week. He and Kuchar battled early, but the eventual loser never owned the lead. Mahan was 2-up by the third hole. He slid back to even when Kuchar birdied the par-4 sixth and Mahan squared a bogey-5 at 7, but Mahan regained the 2-up lead by the turn. He picked off a birdie-win at 12 and a par-win at 13 before the match concluding with a concession at the par-4 14th. Mahan has not played past the 15th hole yet. At 3-0, he breezes into the round of 16. Kuchar (1-2), Stephen Gallacher (0-2) and Ben Martin (1-1) have been eliminated.
May 1 - 4:54 PM

Hunter Mahan hung up a 5-and-3 victory over Ben Martin in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

After denying Stephen Gallacher a win on Wednesday, Mahan went out and did the same thing with his fellow American today. Mahan's only blemish was a bogey-5 at the seventh hole, but Martin also penciled in a 5. Elsewhere, Martin gave Mahan wins with bogeys at Nos. 1 and 4. Mahan piled on with birdie-wins at 5, 11 and 15, the last of which securing victory. Mahan (2-0) will look Matt Kuchar (1-1) in the eyes in the third round on Friday. Martin (1-1) will end Stephen Gallacher's week as the Scot is 0-2.
Apr 30 - 7:58 PM

Hunter Mahan barely broke a sweat in defeating Stephen Gallacher 7 and 6 in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Gallacher is no stranger to failure in this tournament. He was a first-round knockout in each of his first two appearances. He had nothing today at TPC Harding Park, either. The Scot squared four bogeys against zero birdies, while Mahan picked off wins with five birdies and two pars. His birdie-3 at the 12th led to the handshake. Mahan, who won this tournament in 2012 and finished second in his title defense, will face Match Play debutant Ben Martin on Thursday. Gallacher draws Matt Kuchar in the second round.
Apr 29 - 4:49 PM

Hunter Mahan will tackle TPC Harding at this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Mahan owns a 16-6 record at his event, one of the best in the field, but will need to transition that to the new host venue. Unfortunately for him, he's been grouped with one of the other top match-play golfers, Matt Kuchar, in addition to Ben Martin and Stephen Gallacher. Gamers can consider Mahan one of the favorites this week, if he can survive group play.
Apr 28 - 9:12 PM

Hunter Mahan cruised to a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in his final round of the 79th Masters, posting 8-under 280, good for outright possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

Mahan was the first to complete the tournament inside the top 10 on the leaderboard, so you know the end is coming. He hit 13 greens in regulation and poured in seven birdies today, three of which on par 3s. His highlight occurred at the par-3 fourth where he holed out from a similar spot behind the green where Steve Stricker jarred a chip earlier in the day. Mahan shot 9-under 135 on the weekend. This is his 16th consecutive payday dating back to the 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
Apr 12 - 5:37 PM

Hunter Mahan settled for an even-par 37-35=72 in today's third round of the Shell Houston Open.

He hit only 10 greens in regulation, so he can't be too displeased with his score, only his ball-striking, which was sterling in the first two rounds. Mahan circled three birdies today, including a roll from 19'3" at the par-4 third hole, but his longest conversion disappeared for par from 26'1" at the par-3 16th. At 9-under 207, he's five swings back of the 54-hole clubhouse lead and outside the top 10 on the leaderboard.
Apr 4 - 6:01 PM

Hunter Mahan answered his opening 67 at the Shell Houston Open with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round.

Mahan's reputation over the years is as one of the best ball-strikers of his generation, so we shouldn't be surprised when he lives up to it. He striped another nine (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation to total 20 and 30, respectively, thus far. He covered a lone bogey at the par-4 12th hole with five birdies. Mahan opened on the first hole and promptly birdied the first two with respective conversions from 24'8" and 19'3". He added another beauty at the par-3 16th, this time from 22'4". He's 9-under 135 at the break, two strokes adrift of Phil Mickelson's 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Apr 3 - 7:14 PM

In his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, Hunter Mahan toured the Golf Club of Houston in 5-under-par 34-33=67.

The 2012 champ signed his card positioned just one stroke adrift of the threesome of co-leaders. He opened with a birdie at the par-4 10th and added five more to cover a lone bogey at the par-3 14th hole. Four of Mahan's birdies found the cup from outside 10 feet, including a round-long gem from 21'5" at the par-4 third. He's a quiet 67th in the FedExCup standings and today's score matches his season low (second round, Northern Trust Open), but he's also cashed in 14 consecutive starts and continues to demand our respect for that value.
Apr 2 - 2:16 PM

Hunter Mahan posted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

You can't complain about the absence of a square and his position just two strokes off the overnight lead, but he circled only three par breakers. The final dropped in for eagle from 69'4" at the par-5 12th hole. His only other notable conversion found the cup for par from 14'5" at the par-3 second. He was perfect on his other 16 looks inside 12 feet.
Mar 19 - 6:29 PM

Hunter Mahan makes his annual pilgrimage to Bay Hill Club and Lodge for this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Mahan is a perfect 7-for-7 on the season thanks to 20 of his 28 rounds going for par or better. His course history is nearly as good, posting a 9-for-11 record at Bay Hill. In addition, it's important to note he withdrew from this event during the final round last year due to a lower back injury. Mahan will get overlooked by a lot of gamers this week, making him a nice under-the-radar sleeper.
Mar 17 - 3:54 PM

Hunter Mahan turned in a 4-under-par 36-32=68 for his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the host course.

Just six days after his wife delivered the couple's second child, Mahan erased any doubts that he was ready to compete again. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. Along the way, he squared two bogeys, but picked off six birdies, including conversions from 15'10" and 12'5" at the fifth and 11th holes, respectively. He also rolled in a pair of par saves from outside 13 feet to keep momentum alive on his inward nine. Mahan is four strokes back of the overnight co-leaders. He'll grapple with the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club on Friday.
