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. Nov 18 - 11:43 AM

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.
Sep 15 - 8:48 AM

Sean O'Hair back-pedaled to a 3-over-par 38-36=74 in the finale of the Deutsche Bank Championship to settle for a five-way tie for fourth at 8-under 276 and a distant seven shots back of champion Rickie Fowler.

O'Hair hadn't been in contention for two months since co-leading The Greenbrier Classic after 54 holes and it showed. However, with scoring at a premium in today's final round, he squeezed-out a top-five finish after beginning the day T3 and just two back. In-form earlier in the season with three top-15 finishes from mid-March to the end of April, including a P2 at the Valspar, O'Hair picked a good time to get back into the hunt entering the week 66th in the FedExCup standings. After opening in 68-67-67 and recording just two bogey over his first 54 holes, the 33-year-old squared five today against just two birdies. Nonetheless, it's his first top 10 since solo sixth at the RBC Heritage (mid-April) and third of the season on 25 starts, leapfrogging him to 38th in FEC points.
Sep 7 - 7:16 PM

Sean O'Hair painted a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 11-under 202, joint third with Matt Jones and two back of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson.

O'Hair has a pair of top-10 finishes on six starts at the DBC during the Playoff era (T8/2009 and T9/2007), so his T3-position at TPC Boston is not a complete surprise. However, we haven't seen him in contention since he co-lead The Greenbrier Classic after 54 holes two months ago, eventually finishing T13. In fact, his two top 10s on the season on 24 starts, a P2 at the Valspar and solo sixth at the RBC Heritage, mark his first multiple top-10 season since 2012, the last year he qualified for the postseason. O'Hair began today's play at 7-under (T7) and five adrift. He circled four on the card, two per-side, at Nos. 1, 3, 17 and 18, highlighted by a 45-footer at the par-3 third. Thru 54 holes, he's squared just two bogeys, none today, T1 in the field in that stat. The 33-year-old's last (of four) wins on TOUR came in 2011 at the RBC Canadian Open.
Sep 6 - 7:29 PM

Sean O'Hair enjoyed a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in today's second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the halfway point at 7-under 135, five back of 36-hole leader Charley Hoffman.

O'Hair has squared just two bogeys thru his first 36 holes, currently T2 in the field, including today's lone dropped shot at the par-5 seventh. He camouflaged it with five circles on the card on Saturday at Nos. 2, 4, 11, 15 and 16, highlighted by a 32-footer at the par-4 15th and a 35-footer at the par-3 11th. His bogey at the seventh came the result of a missed green in regulation (five on the day) and a missed par putt from 4'8". The 33-year-old entered the week 66th in the FedExCup standings following last week's T45 at The Barclays, and projects 45th with 36 holes remaining. The top 70 in FEC points advance to the BMW Championship at Conway Farms on Sept. 17-20.
Sep 5 - 5:25 PM

Sean O'Hair logged a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

O'Hair rose one spot to 66th in the FedExCup standings with a T45 at last week's Barclays, but he hasn't polished off a tournament with a red number since New Orleans in last April (with a 4-under 68). So, if you're on board, you already know to continue to hold your breath. In the meantime, enjoy today's four-birdie performance that included a hole-out for birdie from a bunker 13 yards away at the par-4 10th hole where he opened the round. O'Hair also rolled in respective birdies from 22'3" and 14'3" at Nos. 16 and 7. He totaled 12 greens in regulation but his only miscue occurred on his penultimate hole where he squared a bogey at the par-3 eighth.
Sep 4 - 6:22 PM

After a two-year hiatus, Sean O'Hair returns to TPC Boston for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship and enters the tournament 66th in the FedExCup standings.

O'Hair is 4-of-6 at the DB Championship (in the Playoffs era) with two top 10s (T8/2009, T9/2007). He finished T64 in his last appearance in 2012 on rounds of 70-74-69-75 and was eliminated at 81st in the FEC standings. O'Hair reached the second leg of the postseason for six consecutive years between 2007-2012, but didn't qualify for the Playoffs in each of the last two years. The 33-year-old was rolling earlier this season with six top-30 finishes in seven events, two for top 10s, including a playoff loss at the Valspar Championship in mid-March. In his last eight events however, he's missed the weekend in five of them, and cracked the top 40 just once. O'Hair finished T45 at last week's Barclays on rounds of 68-68-70-74.
Sep 3 - 12:11 AM

Sean O'Hair has turned in a pair of 2-under-par 68s to open The Barclays.

At 4-under 136, he's just two strokes adrift of the threesome sharing the 36-hole clubhouse lead. After hitting 15 greens in regulation in the lid-lifter, O'Hair mounted 14 more scoring opportunities today. He connected three times for birdie, including from 19'11" at the par-4 fourth hole. His only dropped shot occurred at the modified par-4 eighth where he squared a 5 as well on Thursday. (The hole was longer in 2011 but it played as an easy par 5.) O'Hair began his first trip to the Playoffs since 2012 as the 67-seed.
Aug 28 - 1:52 PM

Sean O'Hair has withdrawn from this week's Wyndham Championship.

He tied for 72nd place in his return to the PGA Championship after a two-year absence. At 65th in the FedExCup standings, he's poised to go at least two deep into the Playoffs. O'Hair missed the cut at Plainfield Country Club when it last hosted The Barclays in 2011. NOTE: Charlie Wi also withdrew as an alternate, but he remains committed to this week's News Sentinel Open on the Tour.
Aug 19 - 2:14 PM

Sean O'Hair has gained entry into this week's PGA Championship.

He was first alternate when Graham DeLaet withdrew due to injury. O'Hair has traded four top 20s with seven missed cuts since late March, so he sets up as a potential sleeper ... if he makes the cut. At 65th in the FedExCup standings, the 33-year-old is poised to go at least two events deep into the Playoffs. He competed in eight consecutive PGA Championships but none since 2012 when he withdrew during his second round with a wrist injury. Carl Pettersson is now first alternate.
Aug 10 - 12:38 PM

Sean O’Hair preps for his ninth appearance at this week's Quicken Loans National.

O'Hair returned to action last week at the RBC Canadian Open after bowing out early of his previous two commitments. His return was shaky as he opened with a 4-over 76 before piecing together a 68 on Friday. Perhaps O'Hair will be able to carry over some momentum into this week as he searches for his eighth top 25 of the season.
Jul 28 - 7:01 PM

Sean O'Hair has elected not to compete in this week's Barbasol Championship.

He withdrew early from last week's John Deere Classic as well. At 59th in the FedExCup standings, O'Hair will be returning to the Playoffs for the first time since 2012, but his owners wouldn't mind seeing him peg it again sooner than later.
Jul 13 - 10:33 AM

Sean O'Hair has withdrawn from this week's John Deere Classic.

O'Hair broke through for his first PGA TOUR title at TPC Deere Run in 2005, but he's just 2-for-5 with no top 35s on site since. A T13 at Greenbrier on Sunday lifted him to 58th in the FedExCup standings, but he didn't qualify for next week's Open Championship. Regardless, 2014-15 has served as a renaissance for four-time winner. He'll celebrate his 33rd birthday this Saturday.
