    Herman played golf in his native Cincinnati for four years before turning pro shortly after graduation in 2000. For a number of years, Herman toiled through the various mini tours without having much success. Eventually, he took up a job as an assistant club pro. He finished in a tie for 74th at the 2007 PGA Tour School and thus obtained a card for the Nationwide Tour. It was after his 2010 season that Herman succeeded in capturing his first ever PGA Tour card. He finished 19th in the Nationwide Tour standings mainly thanks to a win that came at the Moonah Classic where he beat fellow American Chris Kirk after a play-off.

    Herman played 22 events in his rookie season on the PGA Tour, making the cut in 13 of them. His best result was a tie for 22nd at the Puerto Rico Open. He lost his card after finishing the season 189th on the money list. He had to return to the Nationwide Tour the following season. He re won his card after finishing 26th in the second tier Tour standings in 2012. This was helped by a runner up finish at the Preferred Health Systems Wichita Open and a third place finish at the Cox Classic.

    On his comeback to the PGA Tour in 2013, Herman registered two top 10s. His best result came at the Sanderson Farms Championship where he finished in a tie for 9th place. He lost his card again after finishing 139th on the money list. He successfully regained his card after finishing 28th in the Web.com Tour Finals. After losing his main card again in 2014, he won it back by this time finishing 10th at the Web.com Tour Finals.
