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. Mar 5 - 12:36 PM

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.

Justin Hicks has withdrawn from the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Hicks completed 16 holes of his second round on Friday before darkness suspended play. He found himself 2-over-par on his round and 8-over for the tournament, meaning he had no chance of making the cut. An injury is not likely, but if further news presents itself we will provide an update.

Justin Hicks finished in a share of 19th place at last year's Waste Management Phoenix Open and returns this week for another look.

Hicks missed his sixth cut of the season at last week's Humana Challenge. His lone cut made was a pedestrian T61 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. He ranks 176th in strokes gained:total and should not be trusted at this point. Hicks posted three top 10s last season so the upside is there but his current form makes it easy for gamers to stay away this week.

Justin Hicks ranks 196th in the FedExCup standings at this early point in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

Considering how well he ended 2013-14, it's a big surprise that he's performed so poorly in the early going. Hicks finished alone in third at the John Deere Classic, and then was the runner-up in the Barracuda Championship in his very next outing. Since that near miss, he has missed six out of eight cuts including four out of five in the new season.

Justin Hicks turns his attention to El Camaleón Golf Club for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Hicks is a perfect fit on paper with his conservative, fairways-and-greens style of play. It's no surprise that he took home a top 10 here last year, but his form is not looking so hot this time around. Last year, he entered the week with a 2-for-3 record, including a top 20. This year, Hicks is 1-for-4, with zero finishes inside the top 60. This course is one of the few on TOUR that gives Hicks a good chance to contend, but his form is working against him right now.

Justin Hicks turns his attention to Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course for this week's Open.

Hicks will look to continue his success from his breakout 2013-14 campaign, the first seven-figure season on his resume. He won't dazzle any fans with his 125th ranked driving distance, and 102nd ranked strokes gained: total, but he finds a way to score when needed. With a relatively weak field on tap this week, Hicks deserves some attention from gamers in salary-cap formats.

Justin Hicks showcased his ball-striking in the opening round of The Barclays after which he signed for a 3-under-par 36-32=68.

Known best for his precision tee to green, Hicks fulfilled the expectation, missing only one of 14 fairways and one green in regulation. The stripe show yielded five birdies, including conversions from 32'9" and 13'7" at Nos. 7 and 14, respectively. His only hiccup occurred at the par-4 sixth where he missed his only fairway. After laying up, Hicks eventually three-putt from 37'9" for a 6. Camilo Villegas is the last golfer to break through for his first PGA TOUR victory in the FedExCup Playoffs (2008 BMW Championship), but the stars are aligned for Hicks to become the next first-timer. And at 44th in points upon arrival, he doesn't have to worry about survival at this point.

Justin Hicks stole 18 points from Montrêux G&CC in his final round of the Barracuda Championship to come up one shy of the course record and finish alone in second with 44.

Hicks circled 10 birdies and squared three bogeys in his 7-under-par 31-34=65. The highlights were plentiful, as five of his birdies were outside of 11 feet with two of those dropping from longer than 20. He was already in great shape for the FedExCup Playoffs, entering the week in 57th position, but he is now poised for an even deeper run. He ranked inside the top 10 in driving accuracy, strokes gained-putting and putting average for the tournament.

Justin Hicks added 11 points to his bounty to reach the 54-hole mark of the Barracuda Championship with 26.

Hicks circled six birdies and squared just one bogey on his navigation of Montrêux G&CC on Saturday. Two of those fell from the 10-15 foot range. He missed just two fairways and landed 12 GIR in a solid round of ball-striking. He is chasing his first PGA TOUR title.

Justin Hicks finished strong at the RBC Canadian Open with a 6-under-par 31-33=64 to post 13-under 267, four strokes adrift of champion Tim Clark.

Hicks got back on track today after a slight setback in the third round. He had his A-game from the beginning, rolling in back-to-back birdies from outside nine feet on the second and third holes. He would tally five more birdies, including a pair from 13-16 feet at Nos. 15 and 17, while giving just one back (at the par-3 13th). While he didn't win, Hicks' career-tying low yielded his career-low finish on the PGA TOUR.

Justin Hicks stumbled to an even-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open.

Stumble is a relative word here for Hicks, as an even-par 70 still keeps him inside the top 10 entering Sunday, but it's definitely a step back from his 66-67 opening rounds. The trouble took place early as he bogeyed the first and then double-boxed the par-4 fourth hole to get to 3-over on his round. Like a proven veteran, Hicks didn't panic as he played the remaining holes at 3-under-par. Sitting at 7-under 203 after 54 holes, he will make a run at his first top 10 since the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in November.

Justin Hicks chased his opening 66 at the RBC Canadian Open with a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in his second round.

At 7-under 133, he's three strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. Hicks went just 1-for-3 in scrambling with two bogeys at Royal Montreal today, but he lassoed five birdies, three of which from outside 10 feet. The highlight of the day occurred on the first hole he played. After landing his approach at the par-4 10th 26'2" from the hole, he buried the putt to set the party started.

Justin Hicks turned in a 4-under-par 36-30=66 for his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, good for a piece of the clubhouse lead.

He stumbled out of the gates at Royal Montreal today with a bogey-5 at Nos. 1 and 2. After rolling in a birdie from 11'1" at the third, he squared what would be his last bogey of the day at the par-4 fourth. Then, beginning with a birdie-3 at the eighth hole, Hicks alternated birdies with pars all the way in. The set featured a seven-yarder from just off the front of the green at the par-4 10th and a conventional conversion from 14'9" at the par-4 18th. At the time he signed his card, his seven birdies led the field. Since a T17 at THE PLAYERS, he's just 3-for-7 with no top 25s, but his strong tee-to-green game figured to rise in value on a course few know this week, particularly the greens.
