Justin Hicks rocketed up the leaderboard with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the opening round of the Shell Houston Open.
Hicks put on a tee-to-green display this morning, striping nine (of 14) fairways and landing 16 greens in regulation. The approach shots left him stress-free with the flat stick, his longest par-saver coming from 4'9" today. Notable birdie rolls included a 16'5" blast on the par-4 second as well as a pair from just under 12 feet. The first coming at the par-5 fourth and then again on the par-5 eighth holes. Hicks opened strong just two starts ago with a 3-under 67 at the Honda Classic before trailing off to a 77th-place finish by week's end. Mar 31 - 1:11 PM

Justin Hicks fired a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the opening round of the Honda Classic to sit just two adrift the early co-leaders.

Hicks signed a very colorful scorecard, circling six birdies, an eagle, three bogeys, and a double. His round wasn't the prettiest you'll ever see, as he split just five (of 14) fairways on the day. In fact, he lost 1.295 strokes:tee-to-green on the round. It was the flat stick that saved the day, splashing home seven putts from outside 10 feet, walking off the course with a strokes gained:putting number of 6.624 on the day. Playing on a Major Medical Extension, Hicks needs just $700,299 over his next 11 starts to fulfill the terms.

Justin Hicks completed 36 hole of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in 1-under-par 73-70=143 and will miss the cut.

He'd have needed to slice at least three strokes to stick around, but he's familiar with slamming his trunk of late as this runs him to 0-for-3 on the young season. Hicks picked off eight birdies at El Camaleón this week, but he gave it all back and one more with seven birdies and one double. Forever a ball-striker, the 41-year-old piped 22 (of 28) fairways but landed only 24 greens in regulation. He now has 11 starts on his Major Medical Extension to bank $700,299 or 417.5 FedExCup points and retain status.

Justin Hicks shot 1-under-par 71-70=141 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and will miss the cut.

As per his profile, Hicks struck it wonderfully at TPC Summerlin, finding 20 (of 28) fairways and 28 greens in regulation. However, he neutralized eight birdies with seven bogeys to secure his second weekend off in as many starts since returning to the PGA TOUR. In fact, dating back to 2014-15, he's now failed to cash in seven consecutive starts. Today's shortcoming leaves him with 12 starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $700,299 or 417.5 FedExCup points and retain status. He'll have next week off as no medicals qualified for the CIMB Classic.

Justin Hicks answered his opening 71 at the Open with a 1-over-par 38-35=73 and will miss the cut at even-par 144.

He hit 12 greens and circled four birdies today, but Hicks couldn't overcome a trio of bogey-5s and a double bogey-6. So, just like that, he's down to 13 starts on his Major Medical Extension to collect $700,299 or 417.5 FedExCup points and retain status. While gamers shouldn't expect him to meet those terms, the ball-striker can have value on certain tracks, so continue to keep an eye on him as he attempts to regain form at the game's highest level. We'll get our next chance at next week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Justin Hicks registered a 1-under-par 37-34=71 for his opening round of the Open.

Hicks has been busy, but all of his last nine sanctioned starts were on the Tour after he took four months off following an injury to his right hip. In fact, he has a Major Medical Extension on the PGA TOUR this season affording him 14 starts to earn $700,299 or 417.5 FedExCup points and retain status. Today at Silverado, he hit 13 greens in regulation and circled four birdies, including a hole-out from the rough five yards away at the par-4 first hole. Hicks' most notable conventional conversions dropped for birdies from 24'1" and 10'1" at Nos. 3 and 5, respectively.

Justin Hicks signed for a 1-under-par 37-34=71 following his opening round of the Tour's Utah Championship.

Back in action for the first time anywhere since missing the cut at the Valero Texas Open four months ago, Hicks split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation at Golf Club at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah, today. He traded four birdies with three bogeys. He wasn't eligible on merit for this week's Quicken Loans National, so it's not logically airtight to proclaim his appearance on the Tour as a rehab start, but it would appear that it's the case given his time away. Last we knew, he was having issues with a sore hip, but we're still awaiting confirmation on that.

Justin Hicks is included in the published field of next week's Utah Championship on the Tour.

We still don't have an official explanation as to why the 40-year-old has been sidelined since missing the cut at the Valero Texas Open, but he dealt with an injury to a hip early in the year. Since the Quicken Loans National is an invitational for which Hicks didn't qualify, he's entitled to play the concurrent Tour event, so it would count as a rehab start if, indeed, that's how his comeback is framed. He's cashed just twice in 14 starts on the PGA TOUR this season and probably headed toward a Major Medical Extension if he needs one for 2015-16.

Justin Hicks has not competed since missing the cut at the Valero Texas Open in late March.

As we hit the home stretch of the season, he's a few weeks from sitting out a full four months to qualify for a Major Medical Extension for 2015-16. At 2-for-14 this season and 216th in the FedExCup standings, he's going to need it. We know that he dealt with a hip injury early in the year, but nothing has been reported to explain his current time away. He's also been quiet on Twitter and Facebook.

Justin Hicks has withdrawn from this week's Shell Houston Open.

He missed the cut at the Valero Texas Open by four strokes to extend his drought without a payday to five starts. Hicks was dealing with a hip injury that forced him to withdraw during the Puerto Rico Open, so nothing is going right for the 40-year-old. If he's still on your season-long roster, he probably shouldn't be, especially at 202nd in the FedExCup standings.

Justin Hicks blew up for a 4-over-par 40-35=75 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship.

Bothered by a hip injury that forced him to call it quits after one round in Puerto Rico last week, Hicks played like it was still an issue today. He started on the back side of Copperhead and squared three bogeys and a double before the turn. If there's any good news, it's that he came home in bogey-free 1-under. The birdie tumbled in from 30'2" at the par-4 second hole. He also saved par from 13'4". However, it's going to take many more sequences like that before investors get back on board.

Justin Hicks is included in the published field of next week's Valspar Championship.

We'll see about this. He withdrew from the Puerto Rico Open with a hip injury and has not been playing well of late. If the injury is severe enough, it's going to continue to negatively impact his performance.

Justin Hicks withdrew from the Puerto Rico Open following his opening round due to a hip injury.

Hicks signed for a birdie-free, 9-over-par 40-41=81 before voting himself off the island. He found only seven (of 14) fairways and six greens in regulation. The imprecision led to seven bogeys and a double. He bogeyed three of the four par 5s. This is his second mid-tournament WD in five starts. It's his fourth in 95 career on the PGA TOUR. With today's decision, Hicks drops to 2-for-12 on the season with no better than a T34 at Pebble Beach.

Overnight co-leader Justin Hicks followed his opening 64 at Pebble Beach with a 4-under-par 36-32=68 on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club and posted 11-under 132, one off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

The ball-striker piped all 13 fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation today. The precision yielded seven birdies against three bogeys. Overall, he's played the par 5s in bogey-free 8-under with an eagle. His toughest test awaits on Saturday, however, as Hicks will slide over to Spyglass Hill Golf Club for the third round.

Justin Hicks surprised everyone today with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 33-31=64 in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the host course.

Hicks entered the week having cashed in only one of eight starts this season. That's a serious departure from 21 paydays in 30 starts last year. Nevertheless, it takes only one week to turn things around if not make a career. He missed only two (of 14) fairways and only one green in regulation at Pebble Beach today. His series of par breakers including six birdies, three of which from at least 10 feet. He capped the round with an 18-foot eagle conversion at the par-5 18th. This is the fifth time that Hicks has carded a career-low 64 on the PGA TOUR; this is his 92nd start. All bets are off on his projection in the second round over at the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club, but he walked off today with a share of the clubhouse lead.
