Event Highlights Surrounded by stars in the city and on the golf course, James Hahn turned in the performance of his life.  Hahn, who once sold shoes at a high-end department store to make a living, was on the verge of giving up on golf in 2008. This year, he won the Northern Trust Open in a playoff over Dustin Johnson and Paul Casey, for his first PGA TOUR title. The storybook ending? His wife gave birth to their first child, daughter Kailee Marie, one week later.
