Tim Herron completed 36 holes of the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 5-over-par 80-69=149 and will miss the cut.

He was essentially doomed with that opening score during which he erased two birdies with six bogeys and two doubles. Today was vintage as he circled six birdies against three bogeys. He sunk a pair of par breakers from outside 12 feet, the longer of which stretching 26'10" at the par-4 10th hole. Alas, his second MC in five starts this season leaves him with three starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $258,234 or 161.81 FedExCup points and retain status.

At 6-over-par 73-72-74=219, Tim Herron missed the 54-hole cut at the Valspar Championship on the number.

Herron split 22 (of 39) fairways but landed only 28 greens in regulation during his abbreviated stay at Copperhead. He earned $10,431.00 and 0.83 FedExCup points to take a nibble out of the targets for his Major Medical Extension as he heads to Bay Hill this week. Lumpy is down to four starts to bank $258,234 or 161.81 FedExCup points and retain status. He's cashed in three of his four starts this season, but has yet to crack a top 50.

Tim Herron turned in a pair of 2-over-par 72 at The Honda Classic, missing the cut by four strokes.

Lumpy opened the tournament in bogey-free 2-under through 14, but came home bogey-bogey-par-double bogey on Thursday to waste it. He then sandwiched three birdies today with three bogeys and a double. It's his first MC in three starts since returning from surgery on his right knee but it leaves him with five starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $268,665 or 162.64 FedExCup points and retain status.

Tim Herron has been removed from the published field of this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Certainly belief in oneself is a critical component to success in any profession, but you can excuse Herron from this decision. As we relayed on Sunday night, he's gone six straight starts without a payday at TPC Scottsdale. Given he's down to six starts on his Major Medical Extension, expect him to return at a site that has been kinder in recent memory. Of course, this assumes that he's not dealing with any injury, illness or another matter that precludes him from giving it a go outside Phoenix.

Tim Herron missed the 54-hole cut at the Farmers Insurance Open by two strokes.

Lumpy survived the 36-hole cut on the number before putting up a 5-over-par 41-36=77 in the third round to secure Sunday off with a T75/MDF. It's his second payday in as many starts since returning from surgery on his right knee. After banking $11,346.00 and 0.86 FedExCup points, Herron has six starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $268,665 or 162.64 FedExCup points and retain status. He'll be looking to improve on his effort at Torrey Pines at this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open where he's missed the cut in his last six appearances.

With a 72-hole aggregate of 4-under-par 276, Tim Herron shared 51st place at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

He freefell 24 spots on the leaderboard with a 2-over-par 35-37=72, but at least he's back in play and on the board in what was his first start since early June. Herron picked up $12,902.40 and 15.50 FedExCup points for the effort. He now has seven starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $280,011 or 163.50 FedExCup points and retain status.
Jan 12 - 11:38 PM

Tim Herron carded a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, finishing one stroke off the very early clubhouse lead.

This is impressive. Lumpy had surgery on his right knee and hasn't played in seven months. After a par-bogey start on Waialae's back nine today, he played out the string in bogey-free 3-under. He converted birdies from 30'11", 27'11" and 23'9" at the 12th, sixth and seventh holes, respectively. Herron also drilled home a par save from 11'10" at the par-2 second.

Tim Herron is listed in the published field of next week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

A right knee injury and subsequent surgery has prevented the big fella from teeing it up since missing the cut at the St. Jude in early June. He's fully exempt via a Major Medical Extension from which he can retain status if he earns $292,913 or 179 FedExCup points in eight starts. There are worse places where he could return as he's 12-for-14 with four top 20s at Waialae. He'll turn 44 years of age on Feb. 6 and may emerge with fringe value in deeper formats, so you won't miss him if you abstain.

Tim Herron is not listed in the published field of next week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

It was not reported when it happened but we can relay to you now that Lumpy underwent surgery on his right knee after missing the cut at the St. Jude in June. He hasn't played anywhere competitively since and hasn't alluded to a timetable for a return on his Twitter page. Herron has eight starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $292,913 or 179 FedExCup points and retain status. He should not populate any fantasy rosters at this time.

Tim Herron is not listed in the published field of next week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

He started this week ranked 149th in FedExCup points and didn't qualify for The Open Championship. It's the sixth consecutive week that he hasn't committed to a tournament (including the U.S. Open for which he didn't qualify either). Herron last competed at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in early June, but missed the cut. No news has been released to explain why he's sidelined and he hasn't divulged any details on his Twitter page. Stay tuned.

Tim Herron ended his week at THE PLAYERS with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round, finishing the week at 6-under 282.

Lumpy had it going early, finding birdies on four of the first seven holes before dropping his first shot at the par-5 ninth. His second and final bogey fell at the par-5 11th before rallying back for two more birdies coming home. The ball-striking was on point, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 GIR. He now heads to TPC Four Seasons Resort for the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Tim Herron makes his ninth start in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans this week.

Herron’s ventures to Louisiana have been spread out across the years, with half of his starts coming at the current venue of TPC Louisiana. In those, he’s missed two cuts and owns a best finish of T39 last season. Keeping with that .500 theme, he’s made half of his 10 cuts this season with a T59 in Harbour Town last week.

Tim Herron is headed back to Bay Hill for his 18th Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he proved to be the winner in 1999.

While it’s been a while since his victory, Herron put together a T11 finish last season. In all, he’s got three top 10s and five top 25s in 17 starts, failing to cash a check just five times. He has yet to finish inside the top 25 this season, so we will soon see if a friendly course proves to be the potion he needs to get 2013 off the ground.

Tim Herron rattled off six birdies en route to a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open.

Herron has been an infrequent competitor at Riviera, so his early success this week comes as a surprise. He hit only half of his greens in regulation but managed to limit his mistakes to three bogeys, which sandwiched all six of his par breakers. Four of his birdies found the cup from beyond 10 feet, including a roll from 29'1" at the eighth hole and a seven-yard hole-out from the greenside rough at 14. He signed his card sitting four strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.
