Sean O’Hair makes a third visit to the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrews and will be hoping to last the week for the first time.
Back in 2007 the Texan made his debut in the tournament, opened with a 77 to lie T156, added 71 and 69 to miss the cut. Eight years later – 12 months ago in fact – he returned. He improved on his start, very slightly: a 76 to be T155. Rounds of 73 and 75 saw him pack the bags Saturday night again. In fact at no stage in six rounds has he been ranked inside the top 100 so he has little to beat if he wants a career-best effort. It's a record somewhat at odds with his Open Championship log book which has seen him go 6-for-7 with three top 20s, including two on the Old Course in 2005 and 2010. His form is good. He was T2 in The Barclays in late August and closed out the Tour Championship with a round of 65 to finish T17. Oct 4 - 6:11 AM

25-seed Sean O'Hair spun a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's final round of the TOUR Championship to conclude his second appearance in the Playoffs finale on even-par 280, up 11 places on the live leaderboard to T15 and tying Si Woo Kim for the low round of the week thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, O'Hair finished T17, with three players posting 64s for the low rounds of the week.

At No. 78 in the Official World Golf Ranking, the 34-year-old was the lowest-ranked golfer in the 30-man field. He was the only player to make it to the season finale from those entering the Playoffs ranked No. 101-125 in FedExCup points, buoyed mostly by a T2 at The Barclays to kick off the four-event postseason. The Texan posted rounds of 74-68-73 to begin the final frame on 5-over, T26 of 29 players. He got back to level for the tourney by erasing four bogey-5s with nine birdies on 12 greens in regulation for a stellar 1.250 putts per GIR, currently leading in the latter with a cumulative 1.600. O'Hair is projecting to drop one place to 26th in the final FEC standings.

At No. 78 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Sean O'Hair is the lowest-ranked player in the 30-man TOUR Championship.

OWGR aside, this is the 34-year-old's second appearance in the FedExCup era, first since solo third in 2009 where he posted four rounds of par or better (66-70-70-69). At No. 25 in the FEC standings, he is the only player remaining to advance to the Playoffs finale from those entering the postseason ranked No. 101 - 125. The Texan has just two top 10s this season in 26 starts but the most recent was a T2 at The Barclays, which propelled him 93 places to 15th in FEC points. He's chased with a T53 and T52 at the BMW Championship (75-66-74-72).

Sean O'Hair authored a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in today's final round of The Barclays to finish off his eighth visit on 8-under 276, up 13 places to T3 and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, O'Hair finished in a two-way T2, one shy of champion Patrick Reed and jumped to 15th in the FedExCup standings.

The 34-year-old's previous best at The Barclays was T25 on debut in 2007 (Westchester CC). He arrived this week 108th in the FedExCup standings -- with ONE top 10 in 23 starts (T10, SHO) -- and is projected to vault 72 spots to 36th. After laps of 69-69-72, the Texan began the finale on 3-under (T16), six back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. He squared bogey-5s at nine and 15, but outpaced them with seven birdies. O'Hair circled Nos. 1, 2, 7, 8, 11, 13 and 17, four from inside of 10 feet and setting the tone with a 26-footer at the par-4 first. He saved par at the last from 6'7" and made a 13-foot come-backer for a '4' on the par-4 10th. All told, it equated to 4.104 SG: Putting on Sun., buoying him to his fifth runner-up in 305 career events, first since P2 at the 2015 Valspar.

Sean O'Hair styled a 2-under-par 35-34=69 during round two of The Barclays to reach halftime on 4-under 138, currently good for T4 on the live leaderboard as the afternoon wave gets started on their rounds.

O'Hair split just six (of 14) fairways but recovered to still land 13 greens. His flat stick was up-and-down throughout the round, splashing in a pair of putts from 18-to-22 feet but also three-putting to swallow bogey at the par-4 12th and missing from 6'6" at the following hole to square a second-straight bogey. The Texan has made his mark with great iron-play this week, gaining 3.8 strokes approaching-the-green through two days, currently ranked third in the field in that category.

Sean O'Hair ranks 108th in the FedExCup race ahead of his appointment with the Black Course at Bethpage State Park during this week's Barclays.

The Texan finished the regular season 14-for-23 with a five-pack of top 25s, including a T10 at the Shell Houston Open. His schedule was thin near the end of the season, playing just four times since the start of July, missing the cut in three of those starts. With a T22 at last week's Wyndham, O'Hair may be rounding back into form at the right time. His track record at Bethpage Black has a T54 at the 2012 Barclays in addition to a T23 at the 2009 U.S. Open.
Aug 24 - 8:25 AM

Sean O'Hair opened his week at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=67, getting off to a quick start and throwing his name into the mix.

O'Hair split just half of the possible 14 fairways today, but recovered nicely to still land 15 greens in regulation. His flat stick wasn't dialed in from long distance, but he did roll in a pair of crucial par-saving putts from outside eight feet, the longest being a 9'1" splash. In 23 career rounds at Colonial Country Club, this goes in the books as his fourth-lowest loop. O'Hair has to feel great about this blemish-free effort considering he did not have his best stuff off the tee, and did not roll in any putts from outside 10 feet.
May 26 - 2:23 PM

Sean O'Hair orchestrated a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 10-under 200, up 19 spots to T12 with play still in progress.

The Lubbock, Texas native and resident is making his ninth Nelson appearance with a best of solo second on debut in 2005. After opening in 66-69, he began his third frame on 5-under T31, seven adrift of 36-hole leader Ben Crane. The 33-year-old found eight (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation, posting 4.156 SGTTG at the time he signed his card. He overshadowed bogeys at 10 and 17 with seven birdies despite -0.200 in SGP at last glance.
May 21 - 4:16 PM

Sean O'Hair blitzed the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 during the second round of THE PLAYERS, reaching 7-under 137 at halftime.

O'Hair split just half of his fairways and landed a pedestrian 13 greens in regulation. His flat stick made up for a lot of the work, splashing home 10 putts from five feet or longer. Six of those putts came on par-saving attempts, helping to keep the momentum alive. Despite not making a putt outside 10 feet, he walked off the course gaining 1.642 strokes with the flat stick. Through two rounds, O'Hair has traded 12 birdies with two bogeys and one TRIPLE. That triple came yesterday on the par-4 15th hole, and is currently the only thing holding him back from the clubhouse lead.
May 13 - 1:05 PM

Sean O'Hair crushed the back nine in route to a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the opening round at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

O'Hair got off to a mediocre start, trading two birdies with one bogey before darkness stranded him on Thursday. A good night's rest must have done the trick because his flat stick caught fire when he got back out on the course with soft conditions and fresh greens this morning. The highlights included three birdie bombs from outside 21 feet. The longest was a 37'1" splash on the par-4 12th hole. O'Hair walked off the course having gained 3.038 strokes with the putter. He arrived this week having collected top 15s in three of his six Zurich starts and may find another by week's end.
Apr 29 - 12:12 PM

Sean O'Hair tossed up a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in today's final round of the Shell Houston Open for a 72-hole tally of 9-under 279, up fours places on the leaderboard and finishing off his sixth appearance in a three-way T10.

In his 11th start of the season, the Lubbock, Texas, native and resident finally owns a top-10 finish. He and Patrick Reed, also T10, were the only Texans to finish in the top 10 at the GC of Houston. The 33-year-old's previous best this season was a T14 at The Honda Classic, and his previous best at the Shell was also T14, in 2007. He posted rounds of 68-73 and bogey-free 69 to enter the final round on 6-under T14 -- there's obviously a T14 theme here. O'Hair circled four birdies against one bogey on Sunday and while T42 for the week in total birdies with 14, he was T1 in bogeys with only three and led the field in scrambling at a dizzying 84.62 percent.
Apr 3 - 9:57 PM

Sean O'Hair has withdrawn from this week's Valspar Championship following a 6-over 77 in his opening round, citing a neck injury as the culprit. UPDATE: O'Hair returned to action on Mar. 17th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and will make the cut after posting 2-under 142 (70-72).

Just one year removed from a playoff-loss at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club's Copperhead Course, O'Hair went the other way today. He tallied five bogeys and a double on his way to a 6-over-par opening round. The Texan entered the week with a T14 at the Honda Classic in his latest start. This kind of injury should not have long-term impact, but we will let you know if any further updates are released.
Mar 10 - 12:12 PM

Sean O'Hair grinded out a 1-under-par 34-35=69 to open up his week at the Honda Classic.

O'Hair kicked off his round at the par-4 10th hole, scribbling four pars before giving a stroke back on two straight holes. He settled down and landed 17 feet from the hole on the par-3 17th hole, blasting it home for his first birdie of the week. He added another on the par-5 18th, this time a 12'1" roll. O'Hair walked off the course just two strokes back on the live leaderboard. PGA National's Champion Course is showing its teeth right from the get-go, and 1-under is a fantastic start for the Texan.
Feb 25 - 11:28 AM

Sean O'Hair rallied to post a 2-under-par 38-30=68 in the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach the three-quarter mark at 11-under 199, five shots back of 54-hole co-leaders Zach Blair and Brandt Snedeker.

After opening in 65-66 and just one dropped shot over his first 36 holes, O'Hair couldn't have begun Saturday's play much worse, kicking-off with a triple bogey, bogey start and penalties on each of his first two holes. He bounced-back with birdie from 10'9" at the third and from 8'11" at the par-3 seventh, but in-between, squared another bogey at the sixth to turn 3-over. Teetering on disaster, the 33-year-old responded with three straight circles on Nos. 10-12, all from inside 12 feet, and capped his comeback with an eagle-3 at the 18th from 19'11". Thru 54 holes, O'Hair is 58th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, but second in strokes gained: putting.
Jan 17 - 1:17 AM

Sean O'Hair spun a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 on day two of the Sony Open in Hawaii to put 9-under 131 on the board, up four places to T5 with play still in progress.

O'Hair stated in a post-round interview, "I felt good about the golf course coming in and I feel really good about my game." He should after today's blemish-free four-birdie loop of Waialae CC. Granted, that's two less par breakers than he posted in the first round, but he hit only 10 greens in regulation today vs. 17 on Thursday. While his ball-striking was off, including eight (of 14) fairways, he went 8-for-8 in scrambles, highlighted by five straight on Nos. 12-16. The 33-year-old made two par putts from between seven and 11 feet, and his conversions all came from inside 10 feet, including a two-putt birdie at the par-5 ninth, his final hole of the day.
