Tim Herron poked his head up on Thursday, twirling a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of the Fort Worth Invitational, good for a share of eighth place on the live leaderboard.
The 48-year-old split just six fairways today but recovered to pelt 11 greens in regulation. That was good for +2.391 strokes gained on approach. There were no major highlights on his way around Colonial Country Club. None of his birdie conversions came from outside eight feet and he didn't need to make any spectacular par-savers. The 2006 Colonial champion, Herron received a sponsor's invite to compete this week. He's off to a great start but he also hasn't recorded a top 40 on the PGA TOUR since the 2016 Barracuda Championship. At this point in his career, he's likely just trying to keep the competitive juices flowing in anticipation of the Champions Tour. May 24 - 7:08 PM

Tim Herron will make his sixth start of the season as he preps for this week's Fort Worth Invitational.

The 2006 Colonial champ will be making his 22nd career start here in Fort Worth. He has earned a paycheck in 14 of those trips with just two other top 25s to go along with that big win. Looking at his season results, the 48-year-old is just 2-for-5 with nothing better than a T53 (Sanderson Farms). To find his most recent top 40, you'd have to travel back to the 2016 Barracuda Championship where he posted a T4. Having lost strokes to the field in 13 of his last 14 starts, it's easy for gamers to swerve this sponsor's invite.

Tim Herron matched the low round of the week when he cruised to a 6-under-par 32-34=66 during round two of the Sanderson Farms Championship, jumping more than 75 spots on the live leaderboard to sit just outside the top 10 on 5-under 139.

The 47-year-old Minnesotan couldn't get anything going in round one but he caught fire on Friday. Highlights included a pair of hole outs for birdie, including one from 52'3" at the par-3 fourth hole. He also tacked on a pair of birdie putts from just inside 22 feet. Overall, seven of his eight birdies were converted from outside 10 feet. This isn't really a replicable round moving forward, but Herron is now in great position heading into the weekend. This matches the low round of the week so far (five golfers in R1) and is also Herron's lowest round on the PGA TOUR since an 8-under 63 in R2 of the 2016 Barbasol.

Tim Herron heads to Saint Simons Island, Georgia, this week for his fifth appearance at The RSM Classic.

The 46-year-old found a trio of top 30s in 14 starts last season. Playing on Past Champion status, he's 0-for-1 during the Fall. His history at this week's venue, Sea Island Golf Club, shows a 3-for-4 record, but nothing better than a T49 (2012 edition). A fourth-place finish at the Barracuda Championship proved that Herron's not completely off the fantasy radar, but his days of consistent performance are well behind him.

Tim Herron catapulted himself into contention with an 8-under-par 29-34=63 during the second round of the Barbasol Championship, arriving at the midpoint on 9-under 133.

The Minnesota native opened on the back nine with a 13'1" birdie roll to set the tone right out of the gates. He circled two birdies more before swallowing his lone bogey of the day at the par-4 18th hole. He bounced back immediately by holing out a 167-yard eagle at the par-4 first hole. Herron coasted into the clubhouse with four more birdies, carding a 6-under 29 on his inward nine. The 46-year-old is fresh off a fourth-place finish at the Barracuda Championship, his first top 10 since November of 2012. Gamers should keep a close eye on him over the weekend, because this flash of recent form is certainly notable, coming from a four-time PGA TOUR winner.

Tim Herron closed out his week at the Barracuda Championship with a 5-under-par 35-32-67 to bag 13 points, reaching 34 on the week, currently T3 on the live leaderboard with play still in progress.

The Minnesota native continued to struggle with the putter, missing three times from inside seven feet, twice from inside four feet. He's lost 0.61 strokes on the week, near the bottom of the field. The rest of his game was tidy as he circled eight birdies on the day. The highlights of his round were both around the green, holing out from just off the green twice (16'2" and 69'1"). Playing on Past Champion status, the four-time PGA TOUR winner will collect his first top 10 since November of 2012.

Tim Herron is in Irving, Texas, for this week's AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Four Seasons Resort.

The 46-year-old is playing this season on Past Champion status and has one top 25 in seven starts and four missed cuts. His T15 eight weeks ago at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open was his first top 25 since T22 at the 2014 Byron Nelson, his most recent of 18 appearances. Herron has made his last five cuts at TPC Four Seasons with the T22 his only finish inside the top 30.

Tim Herron authored a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach for a four-day tally of 7-under 281, up 39 spots on the live leaderboard to T12. UPDATE: With play completed, Herron finished in a six-way T15, his first top-25 finish since T22 at the 2014 HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Herron's last top 10 on TOUR was T9 at the now-defunct Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic in November of 2012, 42 events ago. His best in 2015-16 on four starts was T52 at The RSM Classic and he entered his third PR Open off a missed cut by five at last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational (73-76). The 46-year-old, playing this season on Past Champion status, made the weekend in Puerto Rico -- on the number -- after 68-75, and tacked on an even-par 72 in R3 to begin the finale on 1-under and T51. He circled seven on 15 greens in regulation, including three straight on Nos. 5-7, with his lone bogey coming on the par-4 ninth.

Past champ Tim Herron readies for his 21st consecutive appearance in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

Herron made his tourney debut in 1996 and incredibly, has played in every event since. He won the 1999 playing in a playoff over Tom Lehman (now 57 years of age), his third of an eventual four TOUR titles. Fifty-one-year-old Davis Love III, who's in the field this week, finished third that year. In 15 editions since, Herron has posted just one more top 10 (2000), and missed seven cuts, including his last three. The 46-year-old, playing this season on Past Champion status, is making just his fourth start of the season, and first since a missed cut at the AT&T Pebble Beach. His best finish thus far is T52 at the RSM Classic.

Tim Herron enjoyed a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to post 7-under 205, up 33 places on the leaderboard.

The last time Herron shot 66 was in R2 of the 2014 HP Byron Nelson 44 rounds ago. He went on to finish T22 that week, only his second top-25 finish over the last three years (T15, 2013 PLAYERS). The 45-year-old, playing this season out of the Past Champion category, sits at T20 thru 54 holes, opening in 69-70-66. His effort today, which began on No. 10 tee, featured one birdie against one bogey to turn even. Following the break, he went bogey-free 4-under, circling birdies on Nos. 1, 3, 7 and a walk-off 3 at the par-4 ninth from 18'1". All four of his conversions on his final nine were from outside of 10 feet, with a long of 24'11 coming at the par-4 third.

Tim Herron checks into Sea Island Resort in Saint Simons Island, Georgia, for his fourth playing of The RSM Classic.

Herron played last season on conditional status and made one cut on a career-low seven starts and pocketed $5,820. He's moved to Past Champion status for this season and beat that total already with $8,118 for T70 two weeks ago at the Sanderson Farms. The 45-year-old last played the RSM in 2012 and went for T49. His career scoring average in 10 rounds at Sea Island’s par-70 Seaside Course is 69.60. The tournament adds a second course this year for one round -- Plantation Course at Sea Island -- which plays to a par 72 at 7,058 yards.

Tim Herron makes his debut in the Tour finals at this week's Hotel Fitness Championship via his 32nd-place finish on the junior circuit's money list.

Herron went 6-for-11 on an abbreviated Tour season with four top 25s, two for top 10s. He qualified for the Tour Finals in the last event of the regular season where he finished solo second at the Winco Foods Portland Open coming up three shy of fellow "youngster" Dicky Pride. The 45-year-old also made seven starts on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15 playing on conditional status after finishing 181st in the FedExCup standings in 2013-14. He made only one cut finishing T73 at the Puerto Rico Open in early March.

Tim Herron is slated to compete in this week's John Deere Classic.

Lumpy received a sponsor exemption. This will mark his seventh appearance in the Quad Cities since a solo seventh in his debut in 2000. He's 1-for-5 this season with a T73 in Puerto Rico. The 45-year-old is also 79th on the Tour money list thanks to one top five another pair of top 20s.

Tim Herron is in the published field at this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial via a sponsor exemption.

Herron won this event in 2006 and is 13-for-17 at the CPI overall. That's the good news. In his eight appearances since his victory, he's missed two cuts and cracked the top 45 once. Reality is that the 45-year-old is in the twilight of his career and his best years on the PGA TOUR are behind him. He's cashed just one paycheck this season on four starts (T73, Puerto Rico Open). As he struggles to find starts on the main tour, the Minnesota native has been picking up events on the Tour going 2-for-4 with two top-15 finishes. Lumpy shot 69-68-71 last week to miss the cut by one (54-hole cut) at the BMW Charity Pro-Am on the junior circuit.
Tue, May 19, 2015 07:33:00 PM

Tim Herron makes his way back to Bay Hill Club and Lodge for another start at this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The 1999 champion is 12-for-19 at this event but has missed the cut in three of his last four starts here. Herron finished T73 at his latest start, the Puerto Rico Open. His prime years are over as he's collected just two top 25s in his last 33 PGA TOUR starts, meaning gamers can safely ignore him this week.
