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. Nov 21 - 6:55 PM

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.
May 19 - 7:33 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.
Mar 17 - 11:02 PM

Tim Herron's name was called for the field at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this week.

Herron holds only Past Champion status, and this is just his second 2014-15 PGA TOUR event. The first was a missed cut in the Sanderson Farms Championship. He warmed up for Pebble Beach by playing the first two Tour events of the season. Highlighting that run was a T12 in the Panama Claro Championship.
Feb 11 - 8:40 PM

Tim Herron heads to Jackson, Mississippi, for this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

Herron was 10-for-15 last season, but finished inside the top 30 on just one occasion. He finished T59 at the 2010 Sanderson Farms, and will take a crack at the Country Club of Jackson this week. Herron is playing on Past Champion status and holds little value in most fantasy formats.

Tim Herron has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Herron was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry following a wave of withdrawals this morning. He's cashed in seven of 12 starts this season, but sits just 184th in FedExCup points and 183rd in earnings.

Tim Herron makes his 12th start of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season at this week's John Deere Classic.

Lumpy has conditional status after failing to meet the requirements of his Major Medical Extension, meaning this is one of the few remaining starts he can count on this season. At 182nd in the FedExCup standings, he needs to make a big move if he is to have anything better than Past Champion status in 2014-15. His best result in this event was a seventh-place finish in 2000.

Tim Herron has been added to the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Herron was the seventh alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Mike Weir withdrew and two alternates passed on the spot in favor of playing time on the Tour. In his first start since exhausting his Major Medical Extension, Lumpy shared 63rd place at Colonial two weeks ago, but he gained entry into that tournament via a combination of special criteria. His tee time at TPC Southwind is strictly on merit at the end of the conditional status category. His track record in Memphis is sterling. It includes a co-runner-up in 1999 and a pair of third-place finished, the more recent in 2011. As a result, the big fella ranks eighth in all-time earnings at the tournament.

In the final start on his Major Medical Extension, Tim Herron settled for a share of 22nd place at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, earning $64,055.00 and 46.00 FedExCup points, not enough to retain status.

Herron was cruising until carding a 4-over-par 74 in the third round. He climbed 16 spots on the leaderboard with today's 68, but he needed no worse than a three-way T7 to fulfill the terms of his MME. (For the record, he was $150,389 or 73.31 FedExCup points short.) However, the big fella secured conditional status for the remainder of the season as he needed to place no worse than solo 43rd. That's not the worst of things given we're at that point when many of the 156-man fields will loop him in on merit. Somewhat lost in today's objective is that the T22 is his first top 25 since last year's PLAYERS. Look for him again on Thursday at Colonial where he's exempt via a combination of criteria as the 2006 champion and inside the top 150 in FedExCup points in 2013 (including points earned while on his MME).

Tim Herron backed up his opening 68 at the HP Byron Nelson Championship with a 4-under-par 32-34=66 to post 6-under 134 at the halfway point.

Look at Lumpy go! He converted another six birdies today to offset only two bogeys and finish two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Today's par breakers featured rolls from 18'10" and 17'11" at Nos. 15 and 1, respectively. Bottom line, this is inspiring form for a guy poised to lose status if he doesn't place three-way T7 or better to meet the terms of his Major Medical Extension.

Tim Herron carded a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Herron was in the first threesome off the first tee today. Because he pegged it, this is the final start via his Major Medical Extension. To fulfill its terms, he need to finish no worse than a three-way T7, so he hasn't ruled that out yet. While he rolled in a 10-footer for par at the par-4 third today, he didn't accomplish anything noteworthy until after the turn. He birdied 10 and 11 with respective conversions of 17'1" and 19'3". Herron then holed out from a greenside bunker for birdie at 12. He followed that highlight with a 35'5" birdie at 13. Bogeys at 14 and 18 stung, but he added a par save from 10'2" at 15.

Tim Herron is listed in the published field of next week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

If he goes through with it, it will be his final start via a Major Medical Extension. To fulfill the terms with earnings ($214,444), he needs no worse than a three-way share of seventh place worth $215,050. (The HPBNC boasts a purse of $6.9 million.) For the record, to fulfill the terms with FedExCup points (119.31), he'd need no worse than a two-way T4. Short of that, Herron can achieve conditional status with 28 FedExCup points, which would require no worse than a solo 43rd-place finish. Should Herron fail at this secondary objective, he'll tumble into the Past Champion category for the remainder of the season. He's supported the Nelson throughout his career as this will be his 18th appearance. He's recorded two top 10s, but Lumpy has just one top 45 in his last five trips (T36, 2012).
