Hunter Mahan is almost certain to step away from competition at some point very late this month or in February.
Mahan, who is on Maui for this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions thanks to his win at The Barclays in 2014, is committed to four consecutive weeks of action beginning at the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Jan. 29-Feb. 1. However, his wife is due to deliver their second child during that stretch. "I'm just going to play my schedule and make adjustments from there," Mahan said. "It's too hard to figure out. Whenever the baby falls is where he's going to fall." So, when he disappears for a bit, you'll remember why. Jan 6 - 7:15 PM

Hunter Mahan spun a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the Open final round to end his week safely inside the top five at 12-under 276.

The U.S. Ryder Cupper spread four birdies and two bogeys across the front nine at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course, with his 11'2" birdie at the par-4 third the longest. His highlight came at the par-4 13th hole, when he found the bottom of the cup from 91 yards for an eagle. Mahan finished his round one stroke shy of the clubhouse lead.

Hunter Mahan signed for a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Open and is knocking on the door of a top-10 finish at 10-under 206.

Five of Mahan's six birdies fell from outside of nine feet, including a 26'4" birdie on the par-5 18th. He gained well over a stroke with the flat stick on the afternoon. The irons afforded him 14 GIR despite finding just seven of 14 fairways at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course. Part of the reason Mahan decided to play just two weeks removed from the Ryder Cup had to be due to the weakness of the field at the top. While he would obviously like to find a hot round and win on Sunday, a top-10 finish would justify his decision to play this week.

Hunter Mahan posted a 4-under-par 37-31=68 in his second round of the Open.

While he'll make the television recaps for double-hitting a chip at the par-3 seventh hole, and references will immediately be made to his travails at the 2010 Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor, it's important to add that he buried the bogey putt from 18'1" to maintain whatever momentum he could at the time. Lo and behold, he played out the string in bogey-free 5-under with five birdies on his inward nine, including a roll from 14'11" at the par-4 10th hole. Mahan's longest conversion was his first, measuring 19'3" for birdie at 1. He hit 16 greens in regulation. At 6-under 138, he's four strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Hunter Mahan turned in a 2-under-par 35-35=70 for his opening round of the Open, finishing one stroke adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Mahan is making his first appearance in the tournament, an obligation to which he agreed when he competed in the 2012 Turkish Airlines Open. He might as well make the most of it. The Ryder Cupper split 11 (of 14) fairways and stood over 14 opportunities to break par. He did just that five times, but none of his 18 conversions measured longer than 8'10" for birdie at the par-4 13th hole. Yet, he whiffed on only one try inside 10 feet. On the four holes where he missed the green in regulation, Mahan got up and down just once and settled for three bogeys.

Hunter Mahan blew a 4-up lead through seven holes to halve his singles match at the Ryder cup with Justin Rose.

After Mahan won four of the first six holes, Rose answered by winning four consecutive holes beginning with the eighth. Mahan rallied and led by one on the par-5 18th. Facing a tough pitch, Mahan hit his third shot from the right of the green all the way across the green to the other side and eventually lost the hole. When their match concluded, Europe lead 13½-9½. Mahan finished the week with a 1-2-1 ledger, while Rose was a dominant 3-0-2 record.

Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan dominated Jamie Donaldson and Lee Westwood 4 and 3 in the third session of four-ball action at Ryder Cup.

Both members of the American tandem sat out the four-ball format in the first session before losing their respective foursomes matches Friday afternoon. Furyk entered the third session with a 1-8-1 career record in four-ball, but he and Mahan ignored that history in an excellent performance. The Americans never trailed the match, circling seven birdies and an eagle at Gleneagles. Mahan was the MVP, circling four of those birdies and holing a putt from just off the green for eagle on the par-4 14th hole. The Americans now trail 6-4 with two points still up for grabs in the third session. Team USA leads both of matches still on the course.

Hunter Mahan has played in two Ryder Cup events and finds himself at Gleneagles this week for a third U.S. team appearance.

Mahan played himself into a Captain's pick with two top 15s followed by a win at The Barclays, then his form came to a screeching halt as he went through the motions in the final three tournaments of the season. He enters the week with a 3-2-3 career Ryder Cup record, including a 2-0-3 trip back in 2008. Mahan could be a sneaky singles star, as he's already defeated four elite members of the European team over the course of his career (Martin Kaymer, Ian Poulter, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose). Albeit, three of the four victories were at Dove Mountain.

Hunter Mahan makes his way to East Lake Golf Club for his eight TOUR Championship appearance.

Mahan is the only golfer to tee it up in every Playoffs event in the history of the FedExCup. In seven trips to East Lake, he's finished inside the top 10 on three occasions, with a 2011 runner-up finish leading the way. Entering the week at fifth in the FedExCup standings, Mahan is one of five golfers who control their own destiny with a win this week.

Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson gave one of his three captain's picks to Hunter Mahan.

Mahan competed for the United States in 2008 and 2010 and owns a 3-2-3 overall record. He was a shocking omission from the 2012 squad despite winning the WGC-Accenture Match Play and the Shell Houston Open earlier in the year. He likely secured today's nod with a two-stroke victory at The Barclays two weeks ago. It chased a T15 at Firestone and T7 at Valhalla. He led or co-led each of those starts in greens in regulation. He completed the automatically qualifying window 25th in points. Watson said in today's presser that Mahan will likely play in all five matches at Gleneagles on Sept. 26-28.

Hunter Mahan closed out his week at TPC Boston with a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

He circled five birdies to just two bogeys on Monday morning to end his week at 1-over 285. Two of those birdies were from long range, holing putts from 46'8" and 20'1" on the par-3 third and 16th holes. Mahan suffered a bit of a hangover after winning The Barclays last week, but his final-round performance likely proved to U.S. Ryder Cup captain, Tom Watson, that he is ready to accept a captain's pick tomorrow. It's hard to imagine a scenario where he doesn't get the call to head to Gleneagles.

Hunter Mahan struggled to a 2-over-par 37-36=73 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Last week's champ and current FedExCup points leader seemed to fulfill the winner's hangover so often seen on the PGA TOUR. He opened with a bogey-5 at the 10th hole, and even that needed an attempt from 11'2" to drop. Overall, Mahan split 10 (of 14) fairways, but landed only 10 greens in regulation en route to a lone birdie at the par-5 second hole. He whiffed on a trio of tries inside nine feet and signed his card sitting eight strokes back of the clubhouse lead.

Hunter Mahan lit up Ridgewood Country Club for a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of The Barclays to claim the title by two strokes at 14-under 270.

Mahan was on fire for the majority of his round, circling seven birdies without a blemish on his first 17 holes before a bogey at the last. Three of his last four birdies were of note, holing putts from 27'10", 10'11" and 21'7" at the par-5 13th, par-3 15th and par-5 17th holes, respectively. Irons were the key to his round and his week. He landed 15 GIR for the afternoon and a tournament-leading 58 for the week. Mahan entered the week ranked 62nd in the FedExCup standings and without a victory on the PGA TOUR since the 2012 Shell Houston Open. With today's title -- his sixth on the PGA TOUR -- the American moves to first in the FEC standings and into the mix for a captain's pick for the upcoming Ryder Cup. Considering captain Tom Watson will name his three selections after the Deutsche Bank Championship, Mahan's timing couldn't have been much better. Mahan also clinches the opportunity to extend his streak of competing in every event in FedExCup Playoffs history.

Hunter Mahan fired a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of The Barclays to take the clubhouse lead at 8-under 205.

Mahan circled five birdies to just two bogeys on his navigation of Ridgewood CC, with a 19'5" birdie at the par-4 sixth and a 15'11" birdie at the par-3 15th serving as the highlights. The irons were the key to his success, landing 15 GIR. He was trending well leading up to this event, having tied for 15th at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and sharing seventh at the PGA Championship. Not only is he peaking just in time for a run at the FedExCup, it is to be assumed that his fine play is also catching the eye of U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson. Mahan hopes to be one of the three captain's picks to be announced following the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Hunter Mahan shot an even -par 36-35=71 in his second round of The Barclays, arriving at the midpoint in 5-under 136, three strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Given he stood over 13 opportunities to break par and didn't sign for a red number, chalk up the day as a disappointment. Mahan did convert three times, including from 18'6" and 17'3" at Nos. 16 and 3, respectively, but he also three-jacked the par-5 13th from just 16'5" for the first of three bogeys. A walk-off par save from 11'4" at the par-4 ninth preserved the omission of a plus sign in front of his overall score in relation to par.
