Justin Hicks posted a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic, finishing three strokes adrift of the clubhouse tri-leaders.
Hicks has struggled connected good rounds in recent weeks. Since a T17 at THE PLAYERS, he's 2-for-6 with no top 45s, yet he's painted five red numbers in his last four starts. The lowest was a 66 to open the Travelers Championship, but he faded to a T57. Today he missed only one of 14 fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to six birdies, all from inside seven feet. A lone bogey at the par-4 13th thwarted a clean card. Jul 10 - 7:38 PM

Justin Hicks spun a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

Going out in the first threesome off the first tee, Hicks was benefited by pristine conditions, but he really didn't capitalize until the home stretch. He completed his first 12 holes in 1-over with one birdie, and that was from 48'10" at the par-4 fourth holes. Undeterred, he torched TPC River Highlands for five birdies on the last six holes. The most notable measured 16'4" at 14. If he's ever going to win on the PGA TOUR, it'll likely occur on a small ballpark since distance off the tee is not a strength. He's rather solid throughout the rest of his bag, though.

Justin Hicks has been removed from the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Hicks shot 4-over-par 72-74=146 in the U.S. Open sectional qualifier in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday. That was six strokes outside the playoff for the final three spots. He played in five consecutive events, so today's decision will granted a minimum two-week break. He hadn't taken more than one week off at any point in 2014.

Justin Hicks jumps back on the horse this week in the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Hicks missed the cut in the HP Byron Nelson Championship last week, breaking a streak of eight consecutive paydays. It's possible that the expectations were mounting a little faster than he was prepared to handle, as he was starting to pop up on numerous gamers' watch lists. Sliding back under the radar this week, he could be poised for a big week. While he tied for 62nd a year ago, a second-round 64 offers promise for what could occur.

Justin Hicks will tee it up in his third Wells Fargo Championship later this week.

Hicks missed the cut in 2011, then finished 83rd with an MDF last season. In his five rounds at Quail Hollow, he had a pair of 78s, two 74s and a 72 for his troubles. Needless to say, he isn't exactly a course horse. He's made his last six cuts in 2013-14 and ranks 64th in the FedExCup standings, so something's got to give.
Apr 29 - 9:19 PM

Justin Hicks fashioned a 5-under-par 36-31=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Hicks strolled to a solo 15th at last week's VTO despite playing his last 54 holes in 1-over. Today was the antithesis of that as he authored one of the shots of the day at the par-4 sixth hole. After driving into the light rough right of the fairway, Hicks jarred his approached from 152 yards for eagle. It was one of five par breakers on the round. His longest birdie measured just 12'2" at 4, but he also poured in a par save from 20'2" at 18.
Apr 3 - 7:00 PM

Justin Hicks coasted to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-36=69 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, finishing one stroke off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Hicks went 6-for-6 in scrambling and each of his 18 conversions began rolling from inside seven feet. From a short-game standpoint, it's one of the most efficient rounds on the PGA TOUR this season.
Mar 28 - 10:46 AM

Justin Hicks spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to survive the cut on the number.

He went 5-for-5 in scrambling today thanks in part to a conversion for par from 15'1" at the par-5 fourth hole where he played leapfrog-the-green with his second and third strikes, finally finding the surface with his fourth. Elsewhere, he found four birdies, including a pedestrian roll from 11'2" at No. 11 and a not-so-common 39-yard pitch-in over a bunker at the par-3 second. Only he and Chesson Hadley authored blemish-free cards on Friday. Hicks arrived at Bay Hill ranked 62nd in the FedExCup standings on the shoulder of one top 10 and a another two top 20s.

Justin Hicks makes his way back to PGA National for The Honda Classic.

Hicks has made the cut in his two previous trips, including a T17 in 2011. Ranking fourth on the PGA TOUR in ball-striking should bode well at PGA National, where trouble awaits tee-to-green. One of the most famous three-hole stretches on TOUR is The Bear Trap, which is a gauntlet of two par 3s surrounding a difficult par 4 featuring water and bunkers. Ball-striking is a must.
Feb 26 - 9:51 PM

Justin Hicks submitted an 8-under-par 32-32=64 for his opening round of the Humana Challenge at PGA West's Nicklaus Private.

He split 12 (of 14) fairways and missed only one green in regulation en route to an eagle (at the par-5 eighth hole) and seven birdies. Hicks played the quartet of par 5s in bogey-free 5-under, but swallowed a bogey at the par-4 14th, his only blemish of the round. The round will go in the books tied for his career low carded two times previously. Palmer Private awaits the 39-year-old in the second round.
Jan 16 - 6:39 PM

Justin Hicks has already matched his 2013 top-10 tally on the PGA TOUR after only four starts to open 2013-14.

Hicks had a good year by most standards in 2013, finishing inside the top 125 on both the PGA TOUR money list and FedExCup standings. His tie for sixth at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in his fourth event of the new season, coupled with a T16 at the Open to begin the season, has him off and running headed into the holiday break. He currently sits 30th in the FedExCup standings.

Justin Hicks spun a 4-under-par 30-37=67 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to finish the tournament at 15-under 269.

Hicks bullied his way to the top of the leaderboard early in the final round with seven birdies on his first 11 holes, but would give ground the rest of the way. His fade started on the par-5 13th, finding the green in two but settling for a three-putt par. He then made a messy double bogey after a poor bunker shot on the par-4 14th, then added a final bogey on the 18th hole. Never a winner on TOUR, this will go down as another learning experience.

Justin Hicks was blemish free in his third lap around El Camaleón Golf Club, signing for a 5-under-par 35-31=66.

Hicks moved to 11-under 202 with his solid third round, finding himself five off the lead with a round to play. Irons have been the key to his week. He landed 16 GIR in both the first and third round, with 17 putts at birdie in the second round. His two bogeys are tied for best in the field.

Justin Hicks followed his opening 68 at the Open with another in his second round.

Hicks posted respective nines of 35 and 33 today that featured five birdies against two bogeys. His notable conversions occurred successively, first from 31'9" at the par-3 third hole, and then from 12 feet at the par-4 fourth, both for birdie. His glaring gaffe occurred at the par-3 seventh where he three-putted for bogey from just inside 17 feet, but he'd go on to sign his card sitting three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Hicks has missed only six greens in regulation thus far.

In his first round of the Open, Justin Hicks managed a 3-under-par 33-35=68.

Hicks was already in our crosshairs this week since he had to walk off Liberty National during the second round of The Barclays with an injury to his hip flexor, but he signed his card only four strokes off the overnight at CordeValle, good for T10 after 18 holes. He sandwiched a lone bogey at the par-4 sixth hole today with four birdies, the last two on par 5s. His first two measured 10'2" and 10'6" at the par-4 first and fourth holes, respectively.
