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.

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.

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.

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.

Sean O'Hair opened up his week at the Sony Open with a 5-under-par 32-33=65 and currently sits two strokes off the lead.

O'Hair entered with a love-hate relationship with Waialae Country Club. In eight previous starts, he owns a runner-up finish (2012) as well as a T12 (2009). On the flip side, he's finished 50th or worse in all six others, including three missed cuts. Today was definitely on the love part of the equation as he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 17 greens in regulation. It's actually more surprising that he only finished at 5-under on the day.
Jan 14 - 7:39 PM

After missing the FedExCup Playoffs the previous two seasons, Sean O'Hair re-established his place on TOUR with a 42nd-place showing in FEC points in 2014-15.

The 33-year-old went 18-for-26 last season with eight top 25s, three for top 10s, including a playoff loss mid-March at the Valspar. His second-best finish went for T4 at the Deutsche Bank on rounds of 68-67-67 (T3 thru 54 holes) but 3-over 74 in the finale. The Lubbock, Texas, native and resident is 2-for-3 to open 2015-16 cashing a T26 ( and a T18 at The RSM Classic on rounds of 70-68-68-67. He missed the cut at the Shriners by two after a pair of even-par 71s and two weeks ago went for T7 (of 12 teams) with teammate Mike Weir at the unofficial Franklin Templeton Shootout. FTS aside, he's par-or-better in 10 rounds thus far and ranks 32nd on TOUR in scoring average (70.320).

Sean O'Hair returns for his fifth consecutive RSM Classic this week in Saint Simons Island, Georgia.

O'Hair has cashed three top-20 finishes in four attempts at the RSM, including a T17 last year on rounds of 69-71-64-68. Last season was his second best on TOUR, concluding at No. 42 in FedExCup points. His best was fifth way back in 2009. In total, he made 18 cuts on 26 starts with eight top-25 finishes, three for top 10s. His season best was a P2 at the Valspar Championship, losing to Jordan Spieth in a three-man playoff. The 33-year-old also carved out a T4 at the Deutsche Bank despite closing in 3-over 74, but that finale continued a disappointing trend. He played his last five final rounds on TOUR last season all over-par. O'Hair has opened 2015-16 with a T26 at the Open, again, failing to break par in the final round, and a missed cut by two at the Shriners.

At 5-under-par 68-71=139, Sean O'Hair is one stroke adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders at the Open.

After reaching the third leg of the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time since 2011, O'Hair trekked to Scotland for the Dunhill Links but missed the cut. After another week off, he's exchanged eight birdies with three bogeys in Napa, California. Five of his par breakers have fallen on the quartet of par 5s, but today's longest fell for birdie from 20'5" at the par-4 10th. He opened the day with a par save from 10-and-a-half feet at the par-4 first.

Sean O'Hair is one of 12 American players taking part in this week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

The 33-year-old has played in this event just once previously and missed the cut in 2007. But he has enjoyed past success on the Old Course at St. Andrews which stages two of the four rounds this week (there are also one each at Kingsbarns and Carnoustie). O'Hair was T15 in the 2005 Open Championship at St. Andrews and improved to T7 in the 2010 event. He didn't qualify for this year's Open there but showed a recent return to form when taking T4 at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston earlier this month. A T53 in the no-cut BMW Championship wasn't enough to get him into last week's TOUR Championship so at least he'll be fresher than some of his U.S. colleagues.

After not qualifying for the tournament the last three seasons, Sean O'Hair returns to the BMW Championship for the first time since 2011.

O'Hair bumped from 66th in the FedExCup standings to No. 38 with a T4 two weeks ago at the Deutsche Bank, despite a final-round 3-over 74. It was his first top 10 since solo sixth at the RBC Heritage (mid-April) and third of the season on 25 starts. True to form at TPC Boston, it's now been 11 starts since the 33-year-old last recorded four sub-par rounds in a tournament when T12 at the Zurich Classic at the end of April (65-71-68-68). Notwithstanding the six cuts he's missed during this stretch, eight total on the season, his final-round scoring average is 71.44, ranking him 151st on TOUR. O'Hair's last three final frames show: 78 (PGA Championship), 74 (The Barclays) and 74 at the DBC. Good news is he'll have no trouble making all four rounds at the no-cut BMW, where he last posted a T37 in 2011 at Cog Hill G&CC. He does boast a T4 however, in 2009 (Cog Hill) and rode that to a solo third at the TOUR Championship.
