Bill was born the eldest of five children of Jan and Jay Hass, a former successful professional golfer. Regarding the fact that he is the son of nine-time PGA Tour winner, and a nephew of Jerry Haas, a former PGA Tour player, it is no wonder that he has become a successful professional golfer himself.

He was also honored with Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Haskins Awards, and in 2004 he turned pro.

After missing the first 13 events of the 2007 season, Haas dropped to No. 104 on the money list, and kept the same position through the 2008 season while in 2009 he dramatically improved his game and finished at No. 41 on the Official World Golf Ranking list, and 61st on the money list, earning a total of $1.5 million.

In 2010, at the Bob Hope Classic which took place in La Quinta, California, Haas won his first PGA Tour title. This success was followed by his first appearance at the Masters Tournament, in which he finished 26th. Later that year, he won his second PGA Tour title at the Viking Classis in Jackson, Mississippi. All these accomplishments launched Bill Haas up to 20th place on the money list, and dramatically boosted the total amount of his revenue.
