Connecticut native J.J. Henry heads back home for his annual start at the Travelers Championship.
The three-time Connecticut State Amateur champion has pegged it here 19 times at the Travelers Championship. He's earned paychecks in 14 of those starts, with the clear highlight coming in 2006 when he won the event after posting rounds of 68-68-63-67. Henry has five other top 25s to his name but none since a T5 in 2013. Unfortunately, he arrives on the heels of three straight missed cuts. Henry's local knowledge provides gamers a glimmer of hope if they are looking for a low-tier sleeper but he still brings plenty of risk and not much promise of upside. Jun 20 - 6:00 PM

Team TCU's J.J. Henry and Tom Hoge rattled off a bogey-free, 10-under-par 31-31=62 while playing Four-Ball during round one of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, good for an early spot inside the top 5.

Henry and Hoge started on the back nine today and did most of their early work from tee-to-green. Only two of their five outward birdies came from outside eight feet. After the turn, these Horned Frogs caught fire with the flat stick. Most notable was a 45'1" birdie bomb at the par-4 fifth hole (converted by Henry). They also piled on two others from outside 11 feet on their way into the clubhouse. A common theme with these Four-Ball rounds is that poor putters typically elevate their performance since their partners can often guarantee a par at worst. That was the case for Hoge & Henry who both entered the week ranked outside the top 160 in strokes gained putting.

TCU alum J.J. Henry makes his way back to the Golf Club of Houston for his annual appearance at the Houston Open.

Henry has missed just one edition of the Houston Open since 2001. The Fort Worth resident is awfully comfortable in his home state, playing his way to the weekend in 8 of his last 10 tries at this event. His recent course history shows four straight cuts made but nothing better than a T57 in that window. Gamers should expect more of the same, a likely cut made but not much upside beyond that. Henry is 5-for-11 on the season, positioning himself 179th in the early FedExCup race.

J.J. Henry has taken a pass on this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open, withdrawing before the start of the event, giving Tom Hoge a crack at TPC Scottsdale.

Henry looked impressive last week at Torrey Pines en route to a T23 finish. He gained 3.2 strokes approaching-the-green in three measured rounds at Torrey Pines South and also gained 5.1 strokes putting. Henry was set to make his 16th appearance at this event, looking for his first top 20 since the 2009 edition. Instead, a fellow TCU Horned Frog, Tom Hoge, will take his spot in the field.

World No. 464 J.J. Henry withdrew during Round 3 of the Sanderson Farms Championship citing a back injury. UPDATE: Henry returned to action Nov. 9th at the OHL Classic and missed the cut by seven on 6-over 72-76=148.

This is the 42-year-old's fourth mid-tourney WD in 497 career events, one in each of the last three seasons. After opening in 73-70, he was one of 15 players to make the cut on the number, and called it quits after opening R3 with double bogey-5 on hole 10. The TCU alum finished 125th in the FedExCup standings last season with seven top 25s among 17 cashes in 29 starts, two for top 10s. He posted T16 at the regular-season ending Wyndham to move from 134 in the standings to 125.

Two-time champ and World No. 431 J.J. Henry preps for his 13th Barracuda Championship and arrives off a missed cut at the Canadian Open and at 130th in the FedExCup standings.

The 42-year-old is 9-for-12 at the Barracuda with six top 25s and five top 10s, highlighted by his wins in 2012 and a playoff win in 2015 -- two of his three career TOUR titles. With $1.57M in earnings, he's the events all-time money leader. The TCU alum missed the cut last year defending his title, and also MC'd in 2013, defending his title. He's 16-for-20 on the season with six top 25s and two top 10s, a T8 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open back in March, and a T10 two starts ago at the John Deere. The Texas resident ranks 194th on TOUR in Birdie or Better Percentage at 16.81 percent.

World No. 465 J.J. Henry backed up with a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to wrap on 14-under 270, falling four spots to T9.

After opening in 69-64-68, the 42-year-old began T5 on 12-under, four shy of 54-hole leader Patrick Rodgers. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, losing 1.468 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 0.592 around-the-green. The TCU alum kicked off with 10 straight pars, got on the board with birdie-3 at 11 from 19'10" and circled 15 and 17 before walking off with bogey-5 after hitting his second into the water. He posted 1.786 putts per GIR and 1.028 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts. This is Henry's fourth top 25 and third top 10 in 12 appearances, first since T7 in 2013. It's his sixth top 25 of the season in 25 starts and second top 10, joining T8 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open 16 weeks and 12 starts ago.

World No. 465 J.J. Henry pieced together a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the John Deere Classic for a 54-hole total of 12-under 201, down one spot on the live leaderboard to T6, two short of clubhouse leaders Daniel Berger and Scott Stallings and four short of the leader on the course Patrick Rodgers.

After kicking off in 69-64, the 42-year-old began T5 on 9-under, four shy of 36-hole leader Rodgers. He hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.425 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.405 approaching-the-green. The TCU alum squared bogey-5s at Nos. 9 and 13 (3-putt from 22'11"), losing 0.908 strokes around-the-green, camouflaged by three birdies at 10, 14 and 16 and eagle-3 at 2 from 11'0". He recorded a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and 0.071 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts.

J.J. Henry's short game caught fire en route to a 7-under-par 30-34=64 during round two of the John Deere Classic, reaching halftime at 9-under 133, good for a spot inside the top 10.

Henry started his day with a missed 5'6" birdie attempt at the 10th but made up for it three holes later when he holed out from 35' for birdie. He would trade two more birdies with one bogey before the turn. From there, he played the homeward nine blemish-free, circling five birdies along the way. That included a pair of long-distance birdies from the 18-to-23 foot range on his final two holes. The TCU product entered the week with seven straight events where he lost strokes with the putter. Currently ranked 18th in strokes gained putting this week, he either found something in his stroke or is set to regress over the weekend. Henry has not been inside the top 10 thru R2 since this year's Puerto Rico Open where he sat T4 at the midpoint before finishing T8 on the week.

World No. 465 J.J. Henry readies for his 12th John Deere Classic and arrives at 136th in the FedExCup standings.

The 42-year-old is 8-for-11 at TPC Deere Run with three top 25s and two top 10s, a T5 in 2009 and T7 in 2013. In his last three, he finished T63 in 2014 and missed the cuts in 2015 and 2016. The TCU alum is 15-for-24 on the season with five top 25s and one top 10, a T8 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open, where he was T4 thru 36 holes. The start prior, he was T5 thru 54 holes at the Valspar, before fading to T22. The Connecticut native checks in off three straight cashes, but nothing better than T45 last week at the Greenbrier (69-67-72-69). His most recent of three TOUR titles came at the opposite-field Barracuda in 2015 (playoff), which is the last time he's led/co-led on TOUR after any round.

J.J. Henry and Tom Hoge penciled a 3-under-par 34-35=69 during round one of the Zurich Classic, throwing their name into the mix early with best ball on deck in round two.

Playing alternate shot today, the duo opened the week with a 7'6" birdie splash at the par-4 first hole. That would end up to be the only putt converted from outside six feet today. Despite the cold puttersz, this TCU tandem still manage to score, thanks to good iron play. They set up seven birdie-or-better looks from inside 10 feet. Entering the week, Henry had a T5 on his TPC Louisiana resume but also finished outside the top 50 in all nine of his other visits. Hoge, on the other hand, is previously 0-for-2 here. Their ball-striking on day one is a promising sign, but they'll need to heat up the putters as they turn their attention to the best-ball format on Friday.

Making a last-ditch effort for the trophy, J.J. Henry fired a bogey-free, 9-under-par 29-34=63 during the final round of the Puerto Rico Open, falling short of winning at 16-under 272 but he tying the course record in the process.

Henry started the day in a share of 43rd place after backpedaling with his third-round 75. With preferred lies in effect, he rocketed out of the gates today with an eagle at the par-5 second and five more birdies before the turn. Henry would maintain a clean card by round's end thanks to a 4-for-4 scrambling effort. This was the third scorecard signed at 63 this week (Trey Mullinax/R1; Tim Wilkinson/R2) which ties the course record at Coco Beach Golf & Country Club. It's also Henry's lowest round on TOUR since an 11-under 60 in R1 of the 2014 Shriners. The 41-year-old currently sits in T6 on the live leaderboard with a decent chance to pick up a top 10.

World No. 440 J.J. Henry crafted a 7-under-par 31-34=65 in today's weather-delayed second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 10-under 134, tying the clubhouse lead with Chris Stroud and Tim Wilkinson. UPDATE: With Round 2 suspended due to darkness, Henry is currently T5, one adrift of a trio of leaders in the house on 11-under.

With lift, clean and place in effect, the 41-year-old landed nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.533 putts per GIR and taking 27 whacks with the flat stick. He squared a lone bogey-5 at nine, camouflaged with six birdies, including three birdie-2s, and eagle at the par-5 second, his second eagle of the week. This is the TCU alum's fifth appearance in Puerto Rico and after an opening 69, improves to 4-for-5, but still looking for his first finish inside the top 30, with T38 on debut in 2010 his best so far (70-69-68-73).

World No. 481 J.J. Henry fired a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of the Valspar Championship to reach 7-under 206, up 13 spots to solo 7th and tying the low round in the clubhouse with Charl Schwartzel. UPDATE: With play completed, Henry's in a two-way T5, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Adam Hadwin, while Patrick Cantlay had the low round with 66.

The 41-year-old is making his 14th appearance, first since a missed cut in 2015, with two previous top-25 finishes among eight cashes. His best is T20 in 2011 (69-72-66-71). The Connecticut native is in the last season of full exempt status from his third TOUR title at the 2015 Barracuda. He arrived at 145th in the FedExCup standings with five missed cuts versus five cashes and one top-25 finish, a T17 at the Genesis, his first top 25 since the playoff win at Barracuda. The TCU alum opened with 72 but has chased with a pair of 67s, circling six birdies against two bogeys in each of the last two rounds. Today, he landed nine (of 13) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, recording 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.532 SG: Putting. Henry squared the fourth (3-putt from 51'10") and the par-4 16th (tee ball in the water), but outpaced them with birdies at 1, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13, each from inside of 13 feet.

After his opening round of 12-over-par 45-39=84, J.J. Henry withdrew from this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. No injury was cited. UPDATE: Henry returned to action Feb. 16th at the Genesis Open and posted a T17 (69-69-70-69), his first top 25 since his playoff win at the 2015 Barracuda Championship 39 starts ago.

Henry had a wild ride around Pebble Beach Golf Links in round one. He circled two birdies but that was heavily overshadowed by nine bogeys, a double bogey, and a triple bogey. The triple came at the par-4 fourth hole where he was forced to reload after driving it out of bounds. From there he found a greenside bunker and splashed it out to just 26'9" from the cup. In 476 career starts, this will go in the books as just his third mid-tournament WD. We will update if any injury news surfaces.
