2013 PREVIEW: Three solid seasons on the Tour should have prepared James Hahn for the big leagues. It will be up to him to build on the momentum of that second-place finish in the Tour Championship that vaulted him from 13th to fifth on the money list.

2012 DEFINING MOMENT: He got up-and-down for birdie on the second playoff hole to beat Scott Parel at The Rex Hospital Open. Hahn closed with a 67 that Sunday and had to wait for the final three groups to  finish to see if he’d get a chance to pick up his first Tour victory.  – Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: I am always impressed when a player performs under pressure.  At the Tour Championship, Hahn finished second, posting rounds of 70-67-64-69.  When you can perform with your future on the line, you are ready for the PGA TOUR. — Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio

BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: Hahn benefits from a spot inside the top 10 of the reshuffle, but he’s a 31-year-old rookie. There are valid arguments to project for either a balanced attack or an overwhelming experience, but I suspect that his maturity will help him stay the course when times are both good and bad. I’ve pegged him to finish 126-150 on the money list. — Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
