John Huh limps into the Fort Worth Invitational at Colonial this weekend looking to get on track after a couple of subpar performances.
Huh missed the cut in each of his past two events, THE PLAYERS Championship and the AT&T Byron Nelson. He hasn't finished better than 23rd since mid-January when he was third at the CareerBuilder Challenge. Huh ranks 167th in Driving Distance (288.4 yards), but you don't have to be a monster off the tee here with just two Par 5s. Driving Accuracy Percentage is key, and Huh is solid in that area, and he is also a decent scrambler and above-average putter. Huh could be a nice sleeper for DFS owners if he makes the cut this weekend. May 23 - 10:22 PM

John Huh was firing on all cylinders in round one of the RBC Heritage, penciling a 5-under-par 30-36=66 to find himself just two off the torrid pace set by Rory Sabbatini.

Huh wasted no time getting the scoring started this week, rattling in a birdie from 13'4" on the par-4 first hole. He added three more birdies before reaching the turn and also squeezed in an eagle at the par-5 fifth. It was there that he stuck his 263-yard approach shot to inside nine feet before converting the big bird. Huh cooled down considerably after the turn but I'm sure there will be no complaints about this opener. The 27-year-old walked off Harbour Town Golf Links gaining 3.404 strokes with the putter. This matches Huh's low opening round of the season, matching his 5-under 67 in R1 of the Shriners, back in November.

World No. 234 John Huh painted a 6-under-par 34-32=66 on Moving Day at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, up 50 places on the live leaderboard to T16 on 5-under 211 and tying the low round of the day with Austin Cook.

This was the 27-year-old's 23rd lap at Bay Hill and eclipses a previous-best 67/R1 in 2013. After opening with 72-73, he was one of 12 to make the cut on the number, and improved to 6-for-6 on the par-72 layout with a T27 in 2013 his only top-30 finish thus far. The UC-Northridge product found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.564 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 2.101 approaching and 1.559 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 8, camouflaged by five birdies and a hole-out, eagle-3 at 4 from 39 yards away. The New York City native posted 1.500 putts per GIR and 2.183 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.

World No. 433 John Huh painted a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 20-under 268, up eight places to a season-best T3, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead and his first top-10 finish since T9 at the Valspar last March (22 starts ago). UPDATE: With play completed, Huh finished T3, two swings short of a two-man playoff involving Jon Rahm and Andrew Landry.

After opening in 68-69-65, the UC-Northridge product began T11 on 14-under, one shy of the overnight top 10 and five back of 54-hole leader Austin Cook. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.882 strokes on approach and 4.302 tee-to-green. The 27-year-old squared two bogeys at Nos. 1 and 13, offset by six birdies at 7-9, 11, 12 and 17, two from between 16 and 21 feet, adding a hole-out eagle-3 at 16 from 89'11" away. He posted 1.333 putts per GIR and 0.951 SG: putting with 24 total putts. This was the Dallas resident's fourth CBC, third cash, second top 25 (T24/2016) and first top 10. It was his fourth cash of the season in seven starts, second top 25 (T25, OHL) and first top 10.
Jan 21 - 6:25 PM

John Huh twirled a 5-under-par 31-35=66 during round one of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, good for an early share of the clubhouse lead with plenty of play remaining on day one.

Huh opened the week on the back nine and found trouble early when he rinsed his approach at the par-4 12th. He escaped with a bogey, and he went blemish-free from there on out. The highlight on the greens came at the par-4 fourth hole where he drained a 24'4" putt for birdie. However, he glued the round together with a pair of par-savers from the 12-to-15 foot range. Huh entered the week with a 4-for-5 record in Vegas, all four doubling as top 30s. He's on his way to another strong finish.

Overnight leader and World No. 251 John Huh backed up with a 1-over-par 35-38=73 in the second round of the Barracuda Championship, garnering just one point for a 36-hole total of 16 points, down nine places on the live leaderboard to T10, eight points shy of clubhouse leader Stuart Appleby.

The 27-year-old carded eight birdies versus one bogey for a one-point lead after R1, his first 18-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR in his 169th career start. On Day 2, he outpaced birdies at Nos. 2 and 9, with bogeys at 1 (missed par-saver from 4'4"), 11 and 18. The UC-Northridge product striped 13 (of 14) fairways but conjured 12 greens in regulation, losing 1.059 strokes approaching-the-green. He posted a commercial 1.917 putts per GIR and a dismal -1.733 SG: Putting, losing 1.842 strokes against the field at the time he signed his card.

John Huh coasted to a 7-under-par 33-32=65 during round one of the Barracuda Championship, earning 15 points in the Modified Stableform scoring system to stake his claim as the clubhouse leader as play winds down for the day.

Huh has been rather quiet as of late, entering with nine straight finishes of T40 or worse. You'd never know it based on today's scorecard where he traded eight birdies with just one bogey. The altitude of Reno proved no match for Huh who gave himself nine scoring chances from inside 12 feet today. That was good enough to gain 2.356 strokes approaching-the-green while also gaining 2.692 strokes with the putter. Huh is no stranger to success at Montrêux Golf and Country Club as he finished T3 in his 2014 debut but has withdrawn after round one in each of his last two visits.

Making his tournament debut at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, John Huh fired out of the gate with a 3-under-par 34-33=67, throwing his name into the mix after day one.

The typically-accurate Huh split just five (of 14) fairways today but recovered to land 11 greens in regulation. It was steady striking from there that propelled him to five birdies, landing seven approach shots inside 17 feet. The Dallas resident converted on four of those chances included a 15'11" hole out from the fringe at the par-3 11th. Huh also splashed home a 28'3" birdie bomb at the par-3 fourth. Fast starts have been common lately, positioning himself inside the top 10 after R1 in two of his last four starts ahead of this week's event.

John Huh twirled a 3-under-par 32-35=67 during round one of the AT&T Byron Nelson, placing himself just three strokes off the early pacesetters.

The Dallas resident is making his sixth start at the semi-home game at TPC Four Seasons Resort. He has been boom or bust here with a pair of top 20s but everything else outside the top 60. It was nearly all boom today, as he traded five birdies with just one blemish, a double bogey at the par-4 15th. The primary weapon was the flat stick as he splashed home three putts from outside 12 feet to gain 3.812 strokes putting on the field. As a local, he should be in touch with these blustery, swirling Texas winds, making him an interesting name to watch for the remainder of the week.

A birdie-eagle finish lifted World No. 199 John Huh to a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in today's third round of the Valero Texas Open for a 54-hole tally of 7-under 209, up five places into a two-way T2, one adrift of leader Kevin Chappell.

After kicking off in 67-71, the 26-year-old began in a three-way T7 on 6-under, two shy of 36-hole co-leaders Bud Cauley and Tony Finau. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he opened with eight pars and a bogey-5 at the ninth, missing a par-saver from 4'10". The Dallas resident squared the 11th (failed scramble), saved par from 9'11" at the 13th, before breaking the ice from 26 inches for birdie-4 at 14. He gave it right back at 15 (failed scramble) but with the shot of the day, holed out from a greenside bunker at the drivable par-4 17th for eagle. Huh, vying for his second TOUR title in 159 career starts, capped with birdie-4 at 18 from 6'0" to move into the final threesome on Sunday.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 199 John Huh handed in a 1-under-par 36-35=71 after the second round of the Valero Texas Open for a two-day tally of 6-under 138, down three spots on the live leaderboard to T5.

After an opening 67, the 26-year-old began in a four-way T2, one back of 18-hole leader Branden Grace. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, gaining 0.334 strokes tee-to-green and losing 0.037 around-the-green. The UC-Northridge product squared bogey-5s at 12 and 6, both failed scrambles, offset by three birdies at 14 (from 13'11"), 17 (15'11") and a walk-off 3 at the ninth, also from 13'11". He posted 1.727 putts per GIR, 28 putts total, and 1.693 SG: Putting

John Huh breezed through TPC San Antonio's Oaks Course on his way toward a bogey-free, 5-under-par 35-32=67 in round one of the Valero Texas Open, throwing his name into the mix early on in the week.

Huh put on a ball-striking clinic today, but took his time getting the scoring machine started. On the day he split 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, but his first birdie didn't come until the par-5 eighth hole where he bombed in a 30'8" putt. That was the only putt he converted from outside nine feet today, with most of his attack coming through the air. Huh walked off the course gaining 4.02 stroke approaching-the-green. That included a 173-yard tee shot at the par-3 13th that he stiffed to 22 inches. Huh already owns a runner-up finish on his Valero resume (2012) but this is just the second time he's opened his Valero week with a red number. This also matches his personal best at TPC San Antonio, with his prior 67 coming in R3 of the 2012 edition.

World No. 227 John Huh tacked on a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's final round of the Valspar Championship to finish up on 7-under 277, good for a two-way T9, seven shy of overnight leader and champion Adam Hadwin.

This was the 26-year-old's sixth appearance and third cash, posting progressively better finishes of T33/2015 and T22 last year. It's his 10th cash on the season in 12 starts and second top 25, both top 10s (T10, Shriners). After opening in 69-70-69, the New York, New York, native began on 5-under (T9), nine in arrears to Hadwin. He squared a lone bogey-5 at nine, camouflaged with birdies at Nos. 1, 8 and 11, each from inside of seven feet. For the week, the UC-Northridge product totaled 13 birdies versus six bogeys.

This is the 26-year-old's sixth straight appearance and third straight cash after T33/2015 and T22 last year (71-71-69-74). He arrived off a missed cut (by four) in his last start two weeks ago at the Honda (73-71). Overall, the UC-Northridge product is 10-for-12 on the season with one top 25, a T10 at the Shriners back in November. The Dallas resident began with 69-70, T20 on 3-under, and striped 10 (of 13) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, gaining 2.529 strokes tee-to-green and 0.455 SG: Putting. He was bogey-free 4-under thru 11, circling Nos. 4, 6, 7 and 11, the three former from between 13 and 17 feet, before giving shots back at 12, 14 and 15 (failed scrambles). Huh wrapped with a walk-off 3 at the par-4 18th from 4'4".

The 26-year-old was one (of 48) holdovers who didn't get finished on Thursday. He was 4-under thru 12 holes, coming off three straight birdies on Nos. 10-12, when the horn sounded. The UC-Northridge product returned Friday morning to play his final six holes in 1-under, circling the par-3 16th from 11'5". His long of the day was from 19'5" for birdie-3 at five.
