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. Mar 29 - 10:34 AM

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.

Hunter Mahan continues his FedExCup streak ahead of this week's BMW Championship.

Mahan remains the only golfer to peg it up in every single FedExCup event since its inception in 2007. The Oklahoma State Cowboy is in serious danger of ending this streak as he enters the week ranked 52nd in the FEC race. He's only missed four cuts on the season, but sports a surprisingly low (4) amount of top 10s. Mahan will need to post his third career BMW top 10 if he wants any chance to advance onto East Lake.

Hunter Mahan authored a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to wrap at 8-under 276.

At 91st in the FedExCup standings entering the DB Championship, Mahan needed a big week at TPC Boston to advance and he delivered. Considering he had logged just one top 10 (T8/2011) in eight prior visits, it was not a certainty. Plus, he had the added pressure of being the only player to qualify --and play in-- every event in the Playoffs since the FEC began in 2007. After opening in 69-73, Mahan matched his tournament best with 64 in round three to push to T11 entering the Monday finish. He'll keep his FEC streak alive with today's three-birdie against two-bogey showing bumping to T4 on the live leaderboard and projecting at 56th in FEC points. The 33-year-old finished the week with just 14 birdies, T31 in that category, but recorded only six bogeys, T2 in the field at the time he signed his card.

Hunter Mahan fired a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 7-under 206, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead and up 33 spots on the live leaderboard.

In 45 career rounds at TPC Boston, Mahan has carded 64 twice prior (R2/2008, R1/2010), so today's stellar showing was not out of the question. However, despite some previous prowess at the DBC in single rounds, he's only logged one top 10 in eight previous visits during the FedExCup Playoffs era. At 91st in the FEC standings entering the week, Mahan needed something big to happen to crack the top 70 in FEC points and his eight-birdie against one-bogey jaunt today went a long way towards making that a reality. His 64 is low round of the day thus far and bumps him to a projected 64th in the FEC standings with play still in progress. The 33-year-old is the only player to qualify --and play in-- every single event in the Playoffs since their inception in 2007.

Hunter Mahan is missing out on his usual top finishes ahead of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Mahan is the only golfer to advance to the TOUR Championship in all eight editions of the FedExCup Playoffs. He's in danger of missing out this year as he currently sits at 91st in FEC points, 21 places outside of the top-70 bubble. It's not inconceivable to imagine Mahan rattling off a clutch performance this week. He is 18-for-22 on the season, after all.

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.

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.

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.

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.
