James Hahn — No. 81

It wasn’t all that long ago that this Cal product was one of the PGA Tour’s lower-tier members. In 2014, Hahn missed a whopping 14 cuts, finishing the year at No. 363 in the Official World Golf Ranking. However, his luck has turned around in recent years, and he’s now a two-time winner on the game’s top circuit.

One of those victories came at last year’s Wells Fargo Championship, and while he won’t enter his title defense in terrific form, Hahn is certainly worth keeping an eye on. Eagle Point will be a new experience for him this week, but the nice reception he’ll get as the defending champion should still provide a boost to his confidence.

Hahn has been steady enough this year, making the cut in six of his last seven PGA Tour starts. He didn’t finish particularly close to the top of the leaderboard in any of them, but for a player who typically misses a lot of cuts, the mere fact that he’s hanging around for four rounds at a time is encouraging. He’s not a statistical stud by any means, but at 39th on the PGA Tour in driving accuracy and 41st in greens in regulation, he has the potential to go low.
