Sean O'Hair kicked off his week at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational with a steady 3-under-par 33-34=67, staking out an early spot inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.
The Texan opened his day on the back nine and got his scoring started with a 19-footer for birdie at the par-4 10th. That would be his first of two birdie putts splashed in from outside 15 feet. However, it was a love-hate relationship with his flat stick today since his only two blemishes came on missed putts from 6'6" and 3'0". This matches his first-round score from last year where he'd eventually go on to shoot 72-69-71 to finish at 1-under, good for T34. In eight visits to Colonial Country Club, the highlight is a T16 for O'Hair back in 2011. May 25 - 5:39 PM

World No. 92 Sean O'Hair fashioned a bogey-free 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to conclude on 8-under 272, up nine places to a season-best T5.

The Texan was making his 10th appearance and this will be a sixth top 25 and second top 10, joining solo 2nd on debut in 2005 when it was a 2-course event. It's his fifth top 25 of the season in 14 starts and third top 10, eclipsing a previous-best T9 at the CareerBuilder. After opening in 67-69-68, the 34-year-old began T14 on 6-under, one short of the overnight top 10. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.287 strokes off-the-tee and 1.180 around-the-green. O'Hair was 1-under thru 17 holes, circling birdie-4 at seven from 4'10", before dropping a 7-footer at the par-4 18th for a walk-off 3. For the week, he totaled 15 birdies versus just three bogeys, currently No. 1 in the latter, but did eat two doubles.

World No. 92 Sean O'Hair tacked on a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to reach halftime on 4-under 136, down one place on the live leaderboard to T8, two back of 36-hole clubhouse leaders Byeong Hun An and Dustin Johnson.

The Lubbock, Texas, native and resident mustered six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.636 putts per GIR and 1.841 SG: Putting. Other than his putter, which was strong again in R2, his performance did a U-turn from his R1 strokes gained stats which led to an opening 67. The 34-year-old dipped to -2.733 SG: Around-the-Green and -1.349 SG: Tee-to-Green, but improved from negative territory in SG: Approach-the-Green (-1.466) to 2.538. He ate a second double bogey-6 of the week, this one at the third, and squared bogeys at 1 and 10, but slightly outpaced them with five birdies at 4, 7, 9 12 and 13, three from between eight and 14 feet.
May 19 - 1:24 PM

Texas native and resident Sean O'Hair coasted to a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the AT&T Byron Nelson, staking out an early spot inside the top 10.

Facing blustery conditions in the afternoon, O'Hair split just seven fairways but recovered to land 13 greens in regulation. From there, his putter got hot from mid-range. He sank three birdies from outside seven feet but also saved par twice from just inside seven feet. On top of that, he also holed out from the fringe (19'3") to save par at the par-3 17th. O'Hair couldn't keep a clean card, as he found water on approach at the 14th, leading to his lone blemish, a double bogey. The Texan is making his 10th appearance at this event, with five top 25s already on his resume. O'Hair arrived in a bit of a slump with six straight finishes outside the top 45.
May 18 - 7:01 PM

As reported by the Valspar Championship's twitter feed, World No. 79 and past champ Sean O'Hair withdrew prior to the start of Round 3 with a neck issue. UPDATE: O'Hair returned the following week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, posting rounds of 75-80=155 (+11) to miss the cut.

A total of 70 players made the cut of even-par 142, 19 on the number, including O'Hair with rounds of 72-70. This is his 12th mid-tourney WD in 317 career starts, first since this same event last year following a first-round 6-over 77. The 34-year-old, winner here in 2008 as well as a playoff loser in 2015, is in the published field at next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational, so gamers should keep a close eye on this neck issue going forward.
Mar 11 - 8:51 AM

World No. 85 Sean O'Hair fashioned a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of The Honda Classic to post 7-under 203, up 21 spots on the live leaderboard to T7.

The 34-year-old chased his opening 66 with 72 in R2, erasing one birdie and one eagle with a couple squares and a triple bogey-7 at the ninth. He squared a lone bogey-5 at the second in R3, overshadowed with six birdies, recording a sterling 1.455 putts per GIR and 4.524 SG: Putting. The Texan lost 0.903 strokes approaching the green, landing 11 greens, but totaled just 24 putts. His split featured three conversions from between six and 10 feet, adding a 21-footer for birdie-3 at 12, a 36'9" bomb for birdie at the par-3 fifth, and a 43-footer for birdie-2 at 15. O'Hair's 65 was his best in 33 laps at the Honda and ninth sub-par lap around the two venues. His previous best was 66 in 2013/R1.

Sean O'Hair enjoyed his opening lap at PGA National's Champion Course, walking off the property with a 4-under-par 33-33=66 to his name.

O'Hair arrived with five top 25s at this event in nine tries, four of those coming since the course switched over to PGA National. It's easy to see his love for the layout when you see he traded five birdies with just one bogey, despite missing 10 (of 14) fairways. It was great recovery play that did the trick, gaining 4.518 strokes approaching-the-green to make up for the poor play off the tee. His flat stick helped seal the deal with four putts splashed home from the 16-to-20 foot range. Playing his 29th round at the Champion Course, this ties his career low here, matching the opening round of the 2013 edition. O'Hair finished T28 that week.
Feb 23 - 4:46 PM

World No. 79 Sean O'Hair signed for a 3-under-par 33-36=69 after the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge for a four-day total of 14-under 274, currently T10 on the leaderboard. UPDATE: With play completed, O'Hair finished in a three-way T9.

The 34-year-old was making his sixth appearance with a previous-best T28 last year. He arrived off top-11 finishes in his last two starts, including a T11 last week on Oahu where he closed in 6-under 64. The Texan began R4 on 11-under (T13) after kicking off in 67-69-69. A par at the last and he would've book-ended 67s, but he doubled the par-4 last after hitting his tee shot into the water. Prior to that, O'Hair had silenced bogey-6 at 11 with six birdies at holes 2, 5, 8, 14, 16 and 17.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 87 Sean O'Hair carded a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 14-under 266, up 27 places to 11th-place with play still in progress.

The 34-year-old was making his 10th appearance with a T2 in 2012 his lone top 10, one of five career runner-up finishes in 311 career events. He chased 66-69-67 with today's seven-birdie one-bogey showing, his 64 a personal best at Waialae CC in his 33rd career lap, previously 65/R1 last year. It's also the Texan's eighth straight round in the 60s early in the season, following 67-66-69-68 in his last start at the Shriners (T10). For the week, he tallied 19 birdies versus five bogeys and is currently No. 2 in greens in regulation at 86.11 percent (62/72).
Jan 15 - 8:37 PM

World No. 81 Sean O'Hair conjured up a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open for a four-day total of 14-under 270, up two spots into a five-way T10.

This was the 34-year-old's fifth straight appearance in Vegas and first top 10 (T15/2014), and first time putting all four in the red column. He was T8 thru 36 holes (67-66) and dipped slightly with weekend rounds of 69-68. For the week, the Texas native and resident carded 22 birdies and just four bogeys (T1), but also ate two double bogey-6s. After finishing 27th in the FedExCup standings last season and making it to the TOUR Championship for just a second time, O'Hair opened this season with T63 (of 78) at the no-cut WGC-HSBC last week (73-73-72-78).

Sean O'Hair coasted to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-34=66 during the second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, posting 9-under 133 to grab an early spot inside the top 10 with play still in progress.

On a day where many golfers are terrorizing TPC Summerlin with their flat sticks, this Texan opted for ball-striking instead. He walked off the course gaining 2.011 strokes off-the-tee and 1.350 strokes approaching-the-green. O'Hair kept a clean card and circled five birdies along the way, despite the fact he rolled in just one putt from outside eight feet. With 11 birdies and just two bogeys through 36 holes, O'Hair is pacing himself nicely heading into the weekend. In four previous trips to Las Vegas his best finish is a T15, which he posted during the 2014 edition.

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.

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.
