Herman wins and earns Masters Invite

Jim Herman got it done on Sunday at the Shell Houston Open for his first career PGA Tour victory and earned a Masters invite along the way. The 38 year old journeyman used a clutch chip-in on 16 to take a one shot lead that he held onto for the 17th and 18th. Herman has now played in 106 PGA Tour events.

Final round play began Sunday morning with 11 players within 4 shots of the lead. Jordan Spieth got the party started early when he birdied four in a row and five of his first seven holes, but faded late and finished the tournament at -8. Dustin Johnson (-13) and Henrik Stenson (-14) also gave Herman a run for his money, but they couldn’t quite get it done.

Fun Fact: As noted by Dan Hicks during the NBC Golf broadcast, “Jim Herman’s favorite movie is Tin Cup.” Couldn’t pick a better movie to describe the career of Herman.


Herman used this chip-in on the 16th to take a 1 shot lead.

And the final putt on 18 to win it.

Herman got a little emotional in the post tournament interview.
