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. Apr 27 - 2:08 PM

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.

J.J. Henry makes his way back to El Camaleón Golf Club for his seventh appearance at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Henry arrives with a 6-for-6 record at the OHL Classic, including a runner-up in his 2009 debut and a T9 during the 2012 edition. His fairways-and-greens style of play sets up perfectly for the short course, but he's finished outside the top 100 in driving accuracy over the past two seasons, evidence that he's losing a bit of his tough with age. The 41-year-old makes for a decent salary-saver in DFS based on his course history, but it's important to remember he went the entire 2015-16 season without a single top 25.

The winner of the 2006 Travelers Championship, J.J. Henry, makes his way back to his home state this week for an 18th start at TPC River Highlands.

The Fairfield, Connecticut, native is 13-for-17 in his home-state event. He missed the cut in three of his first four tries at TPC River Highlands but is 12-for-13 since. More recently, his play has not been so hot. He arrives this week ranked 180th in the FedExCup race including five straight missed cuts. Henry has yet to find a top 25 during the 2015-16 campaign. On the bright side, his best finish of the season was a T28 at THE PLAYERS, played on a Pete Dye Design (TPC Sawgrass) just like this week.

J.J. Henry turns his attention to Montrêux Golf and Country Club ahead of this week's Barracuda Championship, arriving as the defending champion and tournament's career money leader.

Henry is just 12-for-19 on the season, ranking 175th in the FedExCup race. While concerning, it's important to remember he had missed 11 cuts in 25 starts leading into his 2015 victory at the Barracuda. He was 150th in the FEC standings at the time. Last year wasn't the first taste of success at this event, as Henry is 9-for-11 with five top 10s, including two victories. Both of his wins have come since the event switched to Modified Stableford Scoring in 2012. The long track record of success makes Henry a very appealing option this week in Reno.

J.J. Henry preps for his eighth U.S. Open Championship as he turns his attention toward Oakmont Country Club this week.

Set to go off at 12:41 p.m. ET on Thursday with Billy Hurley III and Jeev Milkha Singh, Henry will be making his first U.S. Open start since 2011 (T54 at Congressional). Overall, he is 4-for-7 with just one top 50 at this event. He's posted two red numbers in 22 rounds, but under-par rounds are difficult to come by when the USGA sets up the golf course. Currently ranked 178th in strokes gained on the season, gamers should only consider Henry in the deepest of formats this week.

J.J. Henry withdrew from the Wells Fargo Championship prior to his second round tee time, he was 3-over through 18 holes. For now, no injury has been cited as the reason for the WD.

Henry had an up-and-down opening round. He circled an eagle at the par-5 10th but also a double bogey on the par-4 14th hole. He sprinkled in five additional bogeys and two birdies, scribbling just nine pars. While his score does not look extreme, he only split four (of 14) fairways on the round. If any news about a potential injury pops up, we will make sure to pass along that information with an update.

J.J. Henry kicked off the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 while taking on TPC Louisiana.

Henry put himself in good position off the tee today, landing nine (of 14) fairways but hit just 12 greens in regulation. That is right around field average, but is low considering this was a blemish-free navigation. He was also forced to save par from 12'11" on the par-4 15th hole. It was his only putt made from double digits. Another great feat which shows how good of a tee-to-green round this was. Henry hasn't finished inside the top 50 here at TPC Louisiana since a T5 back in 2005 so it will be interesting to see how he follows this up over the next three rounds.

J.J. Henry authored a 5-under-par 33-34=67 on day two of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 1-under 143, up 58 places on the live leaderboard to T53.

Henry opened his ninth API in 4-over 76 (three birdies, five bogeys and a double), and rebounded with today's six-birdie one-bogey showing. His 67 matches a season best (31 rounds) shot in R1 of the Shriners back in Oct. The 40-year-old, whose personal best at Bay Hill is T12/2011, improved to 10 (of 14) fairways, digressed one to 13 greens in regulation and posted a sterling 1.538 putts per GIR. His split, which began off No. 10, included back-to-backs on 11 and 12 -- from between 13 and 18 feet -- and three straight on 5-7, highlighted by a 34'4" effort at the par-4 fifth. Henry rolled-in a three-footer at the par-4 third, but missed birdie from 4'2" at the fourth. Had he made, he would've connected five straight. The TCU alum made par putts of 6'9", 7'2" and 14'2" en route to 3.796 in strokes gained: putting at last check.

J.J. Henry heads to Riviera Country Club in anticipation of this week's Northern Trust Open.

The PGA TOUR veteran is very familiar with Riviera CC, making the trip 14 times in his career, walking out with a paycheck in 10 of those. However, his recent course history is not so great. He owns just two top 60s since the tournament made a sponsor change back in 2008. Henry ranks 131st in the FedExCup standings despite a 6-for-7 record to open the season. His lack of high finishes at this point in his career is what takes him out of the spotlight for gamers.

J.J. Henry heads to Kapalua Resort in preparation of his third appearance at this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Henry has three PGA TOUR victories on his tool belt, and he's made the trek to Maui every time. The latest trip, in 2013, ended with a T13 which was a slight downgrade from his T8 back in 2007. Henry took care of business at the Barracuda Championship to earn his way into this week's field. Given the strength of this week's field, he should only be viewed as a possible bargain-bin selection in salary-cap formats.

J.J. Henry completed his first 36 holes of the Frys.com Open in 7-under-par 68-69=137 and sits just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Sure, he won the Barracuda Championship just over two months ago, but Henry isn't a regular on the leaderboard. In fact, that win using the Modified Stableford scoring system remains the only top 10 in his last 63 PGA TOUR starts. Of course, he's projecting toward another in Napa thanks to 11 birdies against four bogeys. Today's set of four birdies featured connections from 26'7" and 17'1" at the par-4 17th and sixth holes, respectively. He also salvaged par from 13'3" at the par-4 third.
