J.J. Henry missed out on the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time in his career but retained his status through the Tour Finals.
Henry finished just outside the bubble in 128th place of the final FEC standings. Things weren't looking promising as he started the Tour Finals with a T63 followed by a missed cut. In the third leg of the Finals, Henry secured a solo fifth place finish, which was good enough to secure that coveted PGA TOUR card. He will start the season in the 32nd spot of the reshuffle.

J.J. Henry crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The veteran arrived in Greensboro slotted 130th in the FedExCup standings. Time and again, we've seen touring professionals of a certain age figure out a way to survive and advance late in the season, so despite an off-year with no top 10s, he shouldn't be ruled out as a contender at Sedgefield. Henry hit 13 greens in regulation and circled four birdies, including on both of the par 5s. His longest conversions, quite predictably, occurred on the other two holes -- both par 4s -- from 19'2" and 10'11" at Nos. 4 and 8, respectively.

J.J. Henry won the 2012 Barracuda Championship and is back in the field at Montrêux Golf and Country Club this week.

That he has a recent win on this layout tells anyone all they need to know about his ability on this particular layout. At 132nd in the current FedExCup standings, he doesn't need a win to earn a spot in the FEC Playoffs in a few weeks, but he does need a solid finish. He's made his last four cuts, including a T43 in Canada last week, but the finishes have been so low that he hasn't gained ground on his chase for the top 125.

J.J. Henry makes his fifth start in The Greenbrier Classic later this week.

After a T36 in the first edition of the tournament in 2010, he's missed each of his subsequent three cuts at The Old White TPC. He's 130th in the FedExCup standings and clearly on the bubble in terms of trying to squeeze into the Playoffs just around the corner. His T13 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic was a step in the right direction, but followed that with a missed cut at the Travelers and a T39 at Congressional last week.
Jun 30 - 8:51 PM

J.J. Henry sits 4-under-par 66-70=136 through two rounds of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, eight strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

It's about time that Henry makes noise. In 16 starts since the PGA TOUR resumed its season after the holidays, he's finished no better than T40 at the Northern Trust Open. He's currently 142nd in FedExCup points. After burying five short birdie tries in the opening round, his only birdie today measured 31'8" at the par-3 eighth, the penultimate hole of the round. Alas, he gave the stroke right back with a bogey-5 at 9, but it's refreshing to know that he's in position to make a run on the weekend.

J.J. Henry turned in a 4-under-par 34-32=66 for his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Like 59 others, Henry returned to TPC Southwind today for a 7:02 a.m. restart of the first round. He picked up where darkness stranded him on Thursday and logged his lowest aggregate since a third-round 65 at the Humana Challenge in January. He hit 13 greens in regulation at TPC Southwind and erased a lone bogey at the par-4 fifth with five birdies. The only par breakers of notable length measured just 10'1" at the par-4 15th hole.

J.J. Henry enters this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial ranked 141st in the FedExCup standings.

Henry is teeing it up for his fifth consecutive week, missing just one cut along the way. While his form is trending relatively well, his course history is not. After 12 trips to Colonial, Henry has amassed just one top 40 finish and signed for rounds under-par in only 12-of-36 rounds.
May 21 - 9:49 AM

J.J. Henry carded a 4-under-par 31-37=68 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Henry occupied the top of the leaderboard until bogeys at 14 and 17, but he gathered six birdies on his first 10 holes. The longest stretched a mere 13'7" at the par-4 fourth. It's a surprising day given he arrived just 3-for-11 in 2014 with no better than a T40 at Riviera. He hadn't signed for a sub-70 since a second-round 68 at The Honda Classic where he missed the cut anyway.

J.J. Henry enters the Shell Houston Open ranked 110th in the FedExCup standings.

Henry is slowly sliding down the FedExCup standings as he sat in 70th place just six weeks ago. Gamers can't rely on him currently as he's failed to play the weekend in eight of his last nine tournaments. Henry turns 39 years old on Wednesday and may try to parlay his birthday into a nice payday, but don't count on it.

J.J. Henry was disqualified from the Puerto Rico Open for failing to sign his scorecard on Thursday.

This is a little strange. He apparently shot a 2-over-par 38-36=74 during which four bogeys outweighed two birdies, so it wasn't like he was pushing 90. It's possible that anything could have caused him not to sign the card -- perhaps he was mad after closing bogey-bogey; perhaps he was distracted; or perhaps he simply forgot and it slipped through the cracks -- but this is not an explanation we see often.
Mar 7 - 9:00 AM

J.J. Henry returns to the Puerto Rico Open for the third time.

Henry has cashed checks in 2010 and 2012, with a T38 in '10 the best. He currently sits 84th in the FedExCup standings despite missing four of his last five cuts. Virtually all of the damage of his 2013-14 season was done early, with three top 25s in his first four starts.
Mar 4 - 9:30 PM

J.J. Henry returns to Torrey Pines for his 13th Farmers Insurance Open.

His continual support of this event is a bit of a question when you dig into his past history. His best finish was a T11 in 2009, but that also is his only top 25. If there were ever a week for him to add his second top 25 in this event, it could be this one. He's made each of his five cuts in 2013-14, with three going for top 25s. He tied for 82nd in last week's Humana Challenge.
Jan 21 - 8:26 PM

J.J. Henry kicked off the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season by securing paychecks in all four of his starts in the fall and turns his attention to the new calendar year ranked 29th in the FedExCup standings.

Simply put, Henry has been playing above his career curve. Three of those four paydays went for top 25s. Historically, he's made just over 65 percent of his PGA TOUR cuts (245 of 389), with 32.3 percent (82) of those going for top 25s. To put it in perspective, he had three top 25s during the course of the entire 2013 season. That he's seventh in GIR and 19th in ball-striking isn't a giant surprise, but that he stands 34th in strokes gained-putting is better than we are used to seeing.

J.J. Henry signed for a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in his third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The likelihood of him walking away with the trophy tomorrow is all but taillights as he's gone two straight rounds without breaking 70 after a sublime 60 on Thursday. He created 16 chances to break par today but did so on only three occasions, all from only five feet or closer. Henry also whiffed on two looks inside 10 feet, one of which (at the par-4 15th hole) led to his second of two bogeys on the round. He's at 12-under 201 through 54 holes.

Overnight leader J.J. Henry answered his course-record 60 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with an even-par 35-36=71 in his second round.

You know the adage -- it's difficult to back up a low round with another -- but it's always aggravating to accept the reality. Henry went just 1-for-4 in scrambling today and added a three-putt bogey from just outside 64 feet at the par-4 fourth hole to total four bogeys on the round. He neutralized the negative with four birdies, but would sign his card sitting four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
