NORTON, Mass. – Hunter Mahan won two PGA TOUR events early this season. But he hasn’t had a top-10 finish in his last six starts, including this week’s Deutsche Bank Championship, as he finished Monday at 3 under, which currently has him outside the top 35.
“You want to make the team,” Mahan said after shooting an even-par 71 in the final round. “It’s plain and simple. It’s not like you can just forget about it. It’s not like it’s not there and not going to impact you.”
Just two of Mahan’s 12 rounds on TOUR have been in the 60s. His last top-10 finish on TOUR was at the AT&T National I n early July.
“What I'm trying to think right now is what can I do to start changing my game right now,” said Mahan, who was on the Ryder Cup team two years ago. “I don't know, I'll just have to think about it, I guess, and try to strategize and change something up. “
