What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: James Hahn at The 2016 Wells Fargo Championship - Great Golf Blog

James Hahn hadn't made it to the weekend of a PGA Tour event since he tied for 17th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in early February - a streak that included 8 consecutive missed cuts.

But there was Hahn on Sunday at the Quail Hollow Club, shooting a 2-under-par 70 -- that included an eagle at the seventh hole but a bogey on the last -- prevailing on the first extra hole when Roberto Castro hit his tee shot in the water.

The win was second career victory but also the first on the PGA Tour for PXG, the equipment company he endorses. Check out here what was in his winning bag.

    HUMBLE, Texas (AP) — Jim Herman delivered a masterful performance at just the right time Sunday in the Shell Houston Open.

    Herman, winless in 105 previous starts on the PGA Tour, chipped in for birdie on the par-3 16th and finished with two solid pars for a 4-under 68 and a one-shot victory that sends him to the Masters for the first time in his career.
    Herman tapped in for par and thrust both fists in the air after his one-shot victory over Henrik Stenson.
    "Sorry for the tears, but I'm pretty happy," Herman said in his TV interview. "We really did a good job keeping our game plan. We wanted to give ourselves as many birdie chances as we could and keep it low stress. And geez, look what happened. Never thought it was possible."
