Hunter Mahan has made a boatload of dough at the Travelers Championship and he returns this week for another crack at TPC River Highlands.
Mahan sits at second place on the career money list at the Travelers Championship, behind only Bubba Watson (two-time winner). Mahan, himself, secured a win in 2007 and also owns a pair of runner-up finishes here. Most recently, he popped for a T17 last year. On the form front, he doesn't look so hot. Mahan has lost strokes tee-to-green in seven of his last eight ShotLink events. It's certainly possible that he finds his game on a comfortable track this week but there are too many question marks in his two-year form window to truly trust him on any fantasy rosters.

Playing this season on Past Champion status, World No. 601 Hunter Mahan plays a home game at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson, being held for the first time at Trinity Forest Golf Club, where he's a member. UPDATE: Mahan missed the cut by two on 2-under 140 (70-70).

The 35-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on Thursday (May 17th), has been solid this season off-the-tee and with the flat stick, ranking 30th (.518) and 17th (.570), respectively, but is 181st in approach and 205th around-the-green. He's 121st in Scoring Average (71.39) and has only connected four sub-par rounds one time in 13 starts, a T43 at the Houston Open (71-69-70-70). On the plus-side, the Dallas resident arrives off three straight made three cuts, the second time he's done that this season, and off a T45 at Valero four weeks ago on a sponsor invite. The Oklahoma State product is 6-for-9 at the Byron Nelson with no top 25s and a best of T39 in 2015 (TPC Four Seasons), T8 thru 36 holes.

Hunter Mahan staked out a spot at the top of the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship leaderboard, twirling a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 to reach the midpoint on 9-under 135, good for the early clubhouse lead with play still in progress. UPDATE: Mahan has been passed but he still finds himself in good position heading into the weekend.

Mahan arrived with no form to speak of, posting finishes of T42-T69-MC-MC-MC since the calendar flipped to 2018. He pushed that poor form aside today and it all started off the tee as he missed just one (of 14) fairways. From there he found 13 greens and went 5-for-5 getting up-and-down. Mahan needed just 24 putts to make his way around Corales GC. Playing on Past Champion status, starts are tough to come by for Mahan but a big finish this week would provide a much-needed boost to his FedExCup tally where he currently ranks 134th. This also matches the low round recorded for the day so far, joining Patrick Rodgers as the duo with 7-under 65s to their credit.

Sponsor invite and World No. 643 Hunter Mahan preps for his 14th Arnold Palmer Invitational and checks in off a missed cut at the AT&T Pro-Am five weeks ago and at 132nd in the FedExCup standings. UPDATE: Mahan missed the cut by one on 2-over 72-74=146.

The 35-year-old is playing this season on Past Champion status and is 5-for-9 with two top 25s, which came in back-to-back starts at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms (T18) and the Safeway (T13). He's 11-for-13 at Bay Hill with four top 25s, most recently a T21 in 2013 four tries ago, and has one top 10 (T6/2008). The Oklahoma State product owns a 71.91 scoring average (47 rounds) on the par-72 layout with a best of 65/R3 in 2008.

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.
Jan 25 - 5:12 PM

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).
Wed, May 17, 2017 06:40:00 PM

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.
