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. Apr 22 - 8:31 PM

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.
Apr 20 - 1:11 PM

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.
Mar 12 - 7:59 PM

World No. 227 John Huh orchestrated a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the Valspar Championship for a three-day total of 5-under 208, up nine places to T11 with play still in progress.

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".
Mar 11 - 3:45 PM

World No. 223 John Huh smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the two-day first round of the Genesis Open, currently T2 on the leaderboard, two back of 18-hole leader Sam Saunders with second-round play already in progress.

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. Huh found 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, recording 1.636 putts per GIR and 2.635 SG: Putting. This was his 11th career round at Riviera CC and second in the red, eclipsing 67/R4 in 2014, the only year he's made the cut (T35) in four prior appearances.

John Huh heads to Riviera Country Club for a showdown at this week's Genesis Open.

Huh is off to the races this season, posting an 8-for-9 record, highlighted by a T10 at the Shriners. That has him positioned 60th in the FedExCup race. This week he'll take on Riviera Country Club, a tough track that has given him problems in the past. In four trips he is just 1-for-4, a T35 in 2014. With just one under-par round in 10 tries at this week's venue, gamers can likely look elsewhere when searching for sleepers.

Past champ John Huh twirled a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during the second round of the 10th OHL Classic at Mayakoba, giving him a two-day tally of 9-under 133.

The 26-year-old known for his precision off the tee is holding true to the reputation, splitting 11 (of 14) fairways today to reach 22 fairways hit on the week. From there he's found a respectable 27 greens in regulation, also scrambling successfully on 6-of-9 misses. El Camaleón Golf Club is still the site of Huh's lone PGA TOUR victory (2012 OHL Classic) and he's collected top 30s in two of his three return visits. Given his continued success at this venue, it will not be surprising to see Huh stick around near the top all weekend, or even possibly earn his second-career victory.

John Huh tossed up a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to post 14-under 270, up two places into a five-way T10.

The 26-year-old was 95th in FedExCup points last season with three top 10s in 28 starts but they all came before March. He hasn't connected four red since T6 at the WM Phoenix Open in February. Though the Dallas resident can go low, as evidenced by his opening 62 this week, he typically has a hiccup (or two) during the week (see 73 in R2). To Huh's credit, he did play the weekend in 67-68, climbing 14 spots to get back in the top 10. Dating back to last season, this is his seventh consecutive made cut (good), but first finish inside the top 30. The UC-Northridge product was making his fifth visit to TPC Summerlin with a previous best of T13 on debut in 2012.

John Huh tore through TPC Summerlin with a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-30=62 during round one of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, placing him two strokes off the torrid pace set by Rod Pampling.

Huh found just four fairways today but recovered nicely to land 16 greens in regulation. From there, he let the flat stick go to town, rolling in five putts from 8-to-16 feet. It was a great mixture of stellar iron-play and solid putting. The Texas resident is making his fifth appearance at the Shriners, and already owns three top 30s to his name. His previous best at TPC Summerlin came in the opening round of his debut (8-under 63). Gamers should not expect Huh to repeat this as the week goes on, but there is nothing to suggest he'll slide away, either.

John Huh coasted to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round three of the CIMB Classic, arriving at the three-quarter mark on 10-under 206.

Huh arrived in Malaysia this week without a top 30 over his last seven starts. He squashed that poor form today as he split 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation. The 26-year-old circled six birdies on the day, including a pair of par-3 birdies. Huh has now traded 10 birdies with just one bogey over his last 36 holes at TPC Kuala Lumpur, and will remain an outside threat to win tomorrow if he maintains this level of ball-striking.

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.

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.

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.
