John Huh takes his talents to Farmingdale, New York, for fifth appearance at this week's Barclays.
The 26-year-old enters the week ranked 111th in the FedExCup standings, needing to jump at least 11 spots to earn his way into next week's field for TPC Boston. Huh played at this week's host venue (Bethpage Black) in the 2012 Barclays where he finished T36. On the down side, he arrives a bit out of form, finishing outside the top 60 in each of his last five starts. While Huh was born in New York, he grew up in South Korea and made stops in Chicago and Los Angeles before settling down in Dallas, Texas, so local knowledge will not be on his side. At 152nd in driving distance, he will need to find his A game if he wants to contend on this week's 7,468-yard Tillinghast Design. Aug 23 - 10:03 AM

John Huh withdrew during the second round of the Barracuda Championship with a back injury. UPDATE: Huh returned to action July 21st at the RBC Canadian Open and shot a first-round 5-over-par 38-39=77 (3 birdies, 4 bogeys and a quad bogey-8).

The 26-year-old was making his third appearance in Reno after posting a T3 on debut in 2014 and withdrawing after a first-round 76 last year. He made it 16 more holes this year, calling it quits after back-to-back double bogeys on holes 6 and 7, his 15th and 16th holes of the day, respectively. Huh was at -3 points on his lap and -2 points overall, nine points shy of the projected cut when he headed for the exits. This is his third mid-tournament WD in his 137th career start and first since this same tournament last year.
Jul 1 - 9:01 PM

John Huh twirled a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to post 5-under 279, up 50 places on the live leaderboard to T15 and good for the low round in the clubhouse.

The 26-year-old is a perfect 5-for-5 now at the QL National. His best thus far is T17 on debut in 2012 (Congressional) so he may better that depending on how the rest of the day goes. Thru three rounds it didn't look that way, beginning the final round on 1-over and tied for 65th after opening in 72-69-73. Huh circled seven birdies over his first 54 holes and nearly equaled that output with six in the finale on 11 greens in regulation for 1.455 putts per GIR. He birdied four straight on holes 5-8, added birdie-2 on the 10th, and capped with a 31'7" bomb for birdie on the par-4 15th. The Dallas resident tallied 4.604 in SG: Putting in R4 after posting negative numbers in each of the first three rounds.

John Huh tees it up this week at THE PLAYERS and ranks 80th in the FedExCup standings.

This is Huh's fifth crack at TPC Sawgrass and he's gotten progressively worse each time. His best is T23 on debut in 2012 and has since posted T68-T72/MDF and a missed cut last year (by three) after rounds of 74-73. The soon-to-be 26-year-old (May 21st) is 10-for-16 on the season with six top 25s, three for top 10s. His season best is T6 the first week of February at the Phoenix Open. Since T22 at the Valspar, Huh has posted T68-CUT-T72/MDF-CUT. He's T9 in par-3 scoring avg. and T38 on the par 5s, but T121 in par-4 scoring at 4.06.

May 11 - 5:54 PM

John Huh held on for a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Valspar Championship for a three-day tally of 2-under 211, up 14 places on the live leaderboard to T10. UPDATE: With play completed, Huh is T9, six shy of 54-hole leader Bill Haas.

This is Huh's fourth Valspar and after missing three straight cuts in 2012-14, broke through with a T33 in 2015 (71-70-72-70). He opened this year's edition with twin 71s, erasing six birdies with four bogeys and a double to sit T24 after two days, five adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Will MacKenzie and Steve Striker. He raced out on day three, playing his first 14 holes in 4-under (five birdies, one bogey), but played his final four holes in 2-over with bogeys on 15 and 17. Huh has three top 10s on 11 events to the season (39th in FedExCup points) and added his fifth top-25 finish with T14 in his last start at The Honda Classic.
Mar 12 - 3:33 PM

John Huh fired a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in today's final round of The Honda Classic for a four-day total of even-par 280, up 41 spots on the live leaderboard to T15. UPDATE: With play completed, Huh's 66 was low round of the day.

Huh was making his fourth visit to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, with a best of T17 last year closing in 68-69. His 72-hole aggregate was 280, exactly where he climbed to today. The 25-year-old made the weekend on the number after opening in 71-72 and conjured a 71 in R3 to sit T56 after three days. He split 10 (of 14) fairways on Sunday and hit 14 greens in regulation, circling birdies at Nos. 4, 5, 9, 13 and 15. Four of those dropped from inside eight feet with a long of 12'9" at the par-4 ninth. Huh squared 11 bogeys thru 54 holes but just one in the finale -- and will post his fifth top 25 of the season on 11 starts.
Feb 28 - 3:16 PM

John Huh put together a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in today's final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 9-under 275, up one spot on the leaderboard and into a five-way T6.

After opening in 69-70-67, Huh began the finale on 7-under, (T7) and six adrift of 54-hole leader Danny Lee. On his round, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and found 13 greens in regulation registering 1.692 putts per GIR. The 25-year-old was 1-over thru his first 12 holes, outpacing two birdies with three bogeys, but circled three over his final six holes, including a six-footer at the raucous par-3 16th. Huh had a chance for one better and T5, but missed from 38 inches at the par-4 18th. His consolation is back-to-back top-10 finishes (T8, Farmers), third in his last five starts, and a personal best at TPC Scottsdale in his fifth visit.
Feb 7 - 5:46 PM

John Huh authored a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 7-under 206, up 13 spots on the live leaderboard.

Huh was trendy heading into the week after posting T33-T24-T8 in his last three starts, but his course form probably dampened enthusiasm (three straight missed cuts). Thru 54 holes in the desert, he's not letting up, currently sitting T8 after 69-70-67. The 25-year-old began day three T21 and erased one bogey with five birdies, three over his final five holes. He went out in bogey-free 1-under on the more-difficult front nine, carding eight pars and a lone par breaker on the par-3 fourth from 28'8"-- preceded by an 11'8" one-putt par save on the par-5 third. The one-time TOUR winner circled four on his inward half with the shortest of the four from 10'6" at the par-4 10th, and the longest a 35'3" walk-off 3 at the 18th. His lone bogey came at the par-4 11th after a failed scramble.
Feb 6 - 5:47 PM

John Huh handed in a 6-over-par 41-37=78 after the two-day final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 1-under 287, good for a five-way tie for eighth.

Huh had seven holes to complete on Monday and did so in 1-over, slightly overshadowing birdie at 13 with bogeys at 12 and 15. He was T9 at the resumption in play and his steady finish bumped him to T8. Granted, that was down three places from his 54-hole starting point (69-69-71) but after beginning 2015-16 with three missed cut in four starts, he's now cashed in four straight (T9, T33, T24, T8). For the week, the 25-year-old circled 15 birdies against 12 bogeys and a double. He makes a quick turnaround to this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open for his fifth appearance (four missed cuts and T12 in 2012 tourney debut).
Feb 1 - 7:12 PM

John Huh carded a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open for a 54-hole aggregate of 7-under 209, two back of co-leaders Scott Brown and K.J. Choi.

Huh isn't tearing up the courses this week at Torrey Pines with just 12 birdies thru 54 holes, T21 in that category. However, he's squared just five bogeys, one each in his last two rounds on the far-more difficult South Course, T5 in that stat. The 25-year-old, playing fifth consecutive Farmers, circled just two birdies on the par-5 sixth and 13th holes, respectively, each from 36 inches or less, but moved up two spots into a two-way T5 with Freddie Jacobson. He missed a 38-incher for birdie on the par-4 first, which was his only other scoring chance from inside of nine feet. The Cal-Northridge product went 6-for-7 in scrambles on the day to stay within shouting distance of his second TOUR title (2012 Mayakoba Golf Classic) in his 123rd career start.
Jan 30 - 8:05 PM

John Huh orchestrated a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open, playing on the South Course at Torrey Pines. He sits at 6-under 138 through 36 holes.

Huh took a giant leap over the field today as he carded this beautiful round on the difficulty South Course. Getting started on the 10th tee, he could have easily been discouraged when it took him three shots to reach the par-3 11th green. He settled for bogey and then bounced back with a 32'4" birdie bomb on the following hole. Ranked 148th in the field in driving distance through two rounds, it's his accuracy that is doing the trick. Huh sits at 17 (of 24) fairways to rank T19 in the field thus far. It will be very interesting to watch Huh over the weekend and see if he can keep scoring on the lengthy South Course, despite his lack of distance.
Jan 29 - 6:58 PM

John Huh crafted a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to reach the three-quarter mark at 17-under 199, six strokes back of 54-hole leader Jason Dufner.

Huh went off No. 10 tee at La Quinta CC in Thursday's first round and squared three bogeys over his first six holes. He's played his last 48 holes in blemish-free 19-under, including today's four-birdie one-eagle jaunt at the TPC Stadium Course. Since missing three of his first four cuts to open 2015-16, the 25-year-old has now put 12 straight rounds in the par-or-better category. Huh split 12 (of 14) fairways in round three and leads the field in driving accuracy thru 54 holes at 36/42 (85.71 percent). He's won once on TOUR in 121 career starts, claiming the 2012 Mayakoba Golf Classic in a playoff in the fifth start of his rookie season.
Jan 23 - 8:41 PM

John Huh smoothed a bogey-free 8-under-par 33-31=64 in round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 11-under 133, four adrift of 36-hole leader Jason Dufner and up 43 places on the day.

Huh chased a 3-under 69 on day one at La Quinta CC with today's eight-birdie romp of the Nicklaus Tournament Course. While yesterday's loop squared three bogeys against six birdies, his round-two showing circled eight (on just 12 greens in regulation) against no dropped shots. The 25-year-old chased a T9 at The RSM Classic with a T33 at last week's Sony, but he closed with three red numbers after opening in even-par 70, including a 65 in round three. His 64 ties for low round of the tournament thus far and shares low lap of the day on the Nicklaus Tournament Course with Jason Gore. The last time Huh shot 64 on TOUR was the final round of the Crowne Plaza back in May.
Jan 22 - 8:27 PM

John Huh went 2-for-5 in the fall portion of the wraparound schedule cashing a T39 (Sanderson Farms) and a T9 at The RSM Classic.

Huh's nine-way tie for ninth at the RSM was a positive development but it was his first top 10 in his last 40 starts (T3/2014 Barracuda). Also, he finished a distant 12 shots in arrears of the champion, so he was never in danger of adding a second TOUR title (2012/Mayakoba). The 25-year-old's 10-under 72-hole aggregate of 272 was his best since 12-under 268 at the Wyndham in August of 2013. Last season, his fourth consecutive on TOUR, concluded at a career-worst 110th in the FedExCup standings with 21 made cuts on 31 starts and no top 10s.

John Huh crafted a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in today's final round of The RSM Classic to wrap his second appearance at 10-under 272, currently T10 on the leaderboard and up 24 places on the day. UPDATE: Huh finished T9 for first top 10 in his last 40 starts, 12 strokes back of champ Kevin Kisner.

Huh won the 2012 Mayakoba Golf Classic in his fifth career start on TOUR and rode that and a T2 at the Valero Texas Open to a spot in the TOUR Championship and Rookie of the Year honors. In his last 107 starts since, he's logged but five top 10s, the latest a T3 at the 2014 Barracuda Championship. The 25-year-old (T48 in RSM debut last season), opened 2015-16 with three missed cuts and a T39 at the Sanderson Farms, so his showing this week is a welcome surprise. Huh began Sunday's play at 6-under (T34) after opening in 69-69-68. On his round, he exchanged bogey at five with birdie at nine (from 17'2) to turn even. After the break, he added another circle on 11 and then three straight on Nos. 15-17 from between seven and 20 feet. Huh finishes with four in the sub-par category for the first time since T30 at the Humana Challenge back in January.
