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.

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.

Hunter Mahan tweeted that he and his wife gave birth to a son on Friday afternoon.

His tweet read, "My Son was born at 5:34 pm yesterday afternoon at 7lbs 5oz. Mom and Son are doing great! A true Miracle!" As mentioned in an earlier blurb, he remains listed in the field for next week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Feb 7 - 11:41 AM

Hunter Mahan is listed in the published field of next week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Mahan withdrew from this week's Farmers early in the week, presumably to be with his wife for the birth of their second child. However, no news has yet surfaced to update us on whether the baby has been born. So, remain patient until we learn more. His track record in this tournament demands it. In the last four editions, Mahan has finished no worse than T16 in 2013.
Feb 6 - 6:54 PM

Hunter Mahan has been removed from the published field of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

This was the second of a scheduled four consecutive starts, but he acknowledge weeks ago that he didn't expect to play in all due to the timing of the birth of his second child. Mahan placed T30 at last week's Waste Management Phoenix Open. It was his worst finish anywhere since the BMW Championship (T59) in September. He's tied for 37th in the FedExCup standings.
Feb 2 - 12:35 PM

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.
