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. Aug 18 - 12:53 PM

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.

Hunter Mahan finds his way back to Torrey Pines for a 12th attempt at winning this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

The California native was on baby alert last year during this event as his wife was scheduled to have their second child. He decided to play it safe and remove himself from the field after his infamous 36-hole lead WD during the birth of their first. He may fly in under the radar this week after a disappointing 2014-15 campaign. However, his course history suggests gamers should jump on the train. With top 30s in six of his last seven starts here, Mahan makes for a great selection this week.

Hunter Mahan looks to bounce back in 2015-16 after missing out on the TOUR Championship for the first time since the FedExCup was introduced.

Mahan posted a 20-for-24 record during last season, but he lacked the top finishes that usually catapult him up the FEC standings. Previously, he'd tallied up at least 12 top 25s in six of the last eight seasons, but posted just seven during the 2014-15 campaign. The six-time PGA TOUR winner is a great candidate to rebound come 2016.

Hunter Mahan completed his first 36 holes of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in 8-under-par 68-68=136 and sits six strokes off the halfway lead.

Thankful to be in the field after months of mostly lackluster form, Mahan is suddenly relevant again. He connected for five par breakers in today's second round at Sheshan International, including two sets of consecutive birdies, but his most notable conversion dropped for eagle at the par-4 16th hole. Bogeys at 6 and 7 threw a damper on his momentum, but that he's contending is sufficiently impressive for now.

Hunter Mahan makes his way to Sheshan International Golf Club for a fourth attempt at this week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Mahan has finished inside the top 30 in all three previous looks at Sheshan. That's nothing new for the Oklahoma State Cowboy, as he's signed for top 25s in 125 of his 332 career PGA TOUR starts. Mahan only finished 49th in the FedExCup standings last year after appearing at East Lake in eight straight years prior. This week could give us a good indicator of what's to come for Mahan in 2015-16.
