Peter Hanson heads to Germany this week to try his luck in the Porsche European Open at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.
Hanson has made the top 10 in two of his last three starts on German soil. True, the first of those (T3 at the Mercedes-Benz Championship) came back in 2009 but the second came in June this year when he posted T7 at the BMW International Open. That's the Swede's best finish so far in Europe this season although he's only played 12 events since returning to action in May. He's missed his last four cuts so is looking for a spark on his first visit to this week's venue. Sep 21 - 4:38 PM

Peter Hanson will have a crack at Sedgefield Country Club at this week's Wyndham Championship.

After posting 25 top 10s globally from 2011-2013, the Swede has just one in 2014. He also missed just five cuts total in 2012 and 2013 combined, but has already eclipsed that number this year, missing six in 17 events played. The upside is there for Hanson, who was inside the top 20 of the Official World Golf Ranking's as recent as last year. However, it's safer to avoid the Swede this week, as his season form indicates his game is not where it needs to be.

Peter Hanson enters the Quicken Loans National having fallen to 151st in the FedExCup standings.

This is the lowest the Swede has ranked all season, and he now has his work cut out for him if he is to make the FEC Playoffs at season's end. This is his first trip to Congressional for this event, but he did tie for seventh at the 2011 U.S. Open at this venue. This is an interesting mix of course history and current form.

Overnight leader Peter Hanson followed his opening 65 at the HP Byron Nelson Championship with a 3-over-par 35-38=73.

He opened par-birdie, the par breaker falling from 11 feet at the par-4 11th hole, but that would the only contribution to today's highlight reel. Hanson played the remaining 16 holes in birdie-free 4-over with four bogeys. He hit just 10 greens in regulation. At 2-under 138, he's suddenly four strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Peter Hanson crafted a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in his opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship to snare outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Hanson had a week off after withdrawing from the Wells Fargo with a back injury. He managed to sneak in 26 holes before shutting it down. Zero worries today at TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas as he hit it tight time and again. The Swede buried six birdies to offset a lone bogey-5 at the 14th hole. All of his 18 conversions disappeared from inside 10 feet. As a bonus to sitting atop the leaderboard, this matches his career low on the PGA TOUR. It's the fourth time he's scored a 65 and second this season (opening round, New Orleans).

Peter Hanson is listed in the published field of next week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Hanson withdrew from last week's stop in Charlotte during his second round with a back injury. He battled the same for parts of 2013, so we've come to expect this sort of thing from the Swede. As a result of the WD, he tumbled to 138th in FedExCup points. Assuming he's ready to give it a go, he'll be making his debut at the Nelson.

Peter Hanson withdrew from the Wells Fargo Championship during his second round, citing a back injury.

This helps explains Thursday's 80. The Swede was 3-over-par through seven holes today and 11-over through 26 when he called it quits. He birdied the par-5 seventh before walking off.

Peter Hanson couldn't find the hole in his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship after which he signed for an 8-over-par 38-42=80.

After last week's T11 in New Orleans, gamers were holding their breath for a carryover in Charlotte. Alas, whatever touch he had on the greens in the bayou didn't make the trip. Hanson hit only nine greens in regulation and wiped away four birdies with six bogeys and a quadruple-8 at the par-4 ninth where he saved the worst for last. Overall, the Swede missed eight tries inside 10 feet and three-putted twice. After finding the putting surface in four at No. 9, he promptly four-putted from just 20'4" for the snowman. At last check, his strokes gained-putting clip sat at -4.275.

Peter Hanson's wild ride around TPC Louisiana resulted in a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The Swede calmly traded a bogey at the par-4 first for a birdie at the par-5 seventh before turning his attention to the back nine. That's when the fun started. A 30'5" birdie at the par-5 11th, a 15'11" birdie on the par 5 12th and a 2'3" birdie at the par-4 13th had him chasing a top-five finish. Disaster struck late in his round, squaring a routine bogey at the par-4 16th before swallowing a double bogey at the par-3 17th following a rinsed tee shot. He ended his day with a birdie at the 18th. He's on the bubble for a top 10, and should he get it it would be his first since the 2013 WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Peter Hanson could only muster a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, improving marginally to 11-under 205.

Hanson circled three birdies, with a 10'7" effort on the par-3 14th the longest, handing back two bogeys at TPC Louisiana. The Swede has yet to record a top 10 in an PGA TOUR event this season, with his T8 in Doral back in 2013 his most recent. At 149th in the FedExCup standings, a high finish will go a long way towards getting his season off the ground.

Peter Hanson turned in a 3-under-par 36-33=69 for his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, reaching the halfway point in 10-under 134.

The Swede missed only one green in regulation, but his only bogey of the round was as the result of a three-putt from 53'5" at the par-5 second hole. Otherwise, he enjoyed four birdies, including respective conversions from 11'7", 18'9" and 18'8" at Nos. 5, 13 and 15. He'll enter the weekend five strokes off the 36-hole lead and chasing his first PGA TOUR victory.

Peter Hanson motored to a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to steal outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Hanson is making just his eighth start of the season devoid a top 30 in a full-field, stroke-play event. At 149th in FedExCup points and not far removed from a back injury that interrupted his schedule in 2013, he's not necessarily popular in our world. That may have changed today. The Swede hit 12 greens and limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-4 first hole where he accepted a penalty for an unplayable lie off the tee. Elsewhere, he connected birdies at Nos. 11-13, the last dropping from 15'1", and then went birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle beginning at the par-3 third where he holed out from off the green eight yards away. He then connected on a 22-yarder at 4 and a conventional conversion from 12'10" at 5. However, Hanson saved the best for last when he jarred his approach from 183 yards at the par-4 sixth for eagle. The cherry on top is that today's aggregate matches his career low on the PGA TOUR.

Peter Hanson will wrap up his preparation for next week's Masters at the Shell Houston Open later this week.

The Swede is trying to find the magic formula, as he missed the cut here in 2012 in his only action at the Golf Club of Houston. It's a bit deceiving to say he's made four of his five cuts in 2013-14, since two of those came in WGCs that didn't offer a cut. Perhaps the better news is that he made the cut at the Valspar Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Peter Hanson is the 15th seed in the Sam Snead bracket for this week's World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Hanson will square off against Dustin Johnson in the first round, which is a tall task. All DJ has done in his last two starts is finish runner-up to Jimmy Walker at Pebble Beach and Bubba Watson at Riviera Country Club. The Swede has performed admirably in this event, making it to the third round two years ago.

Peter Hanson will take a second crack at a full PGA TOUR season thanks to his top-125 finish on the 2013 money list.

Luckily for Hanson, they kept the money list in play for full status because he failed to earn a spot in the FedExCup Playoffs. He played the minimum number of events to meet the criteria for full status, making 11 of 15 cuts with four top 25s and a top 10. He's teed it up once in the new season, tying for 21st at the WGC-HSBC Champions. Knowing that he's unlikely to play much more than the 15 times he has to needs to be a concern for gamers. It's a good strategy to limit the number of players like Hanson to a minimum for full-season formats in order to ensure plenty of starts throughout the season.
