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. Jul 27 - 3:06 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Frys.com Open to begin the season, has him off and running headed into the holiday break. He currently sits 30th in the FedExCup standings.
