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. Aug 2 - 7:03 PM

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.

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".

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.
Jul 14 - 7:19 PM

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).
Mar 24 - 2:33 PM

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.
Feb 9 - 5:42 PM

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.
