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.

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 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.

J.J. Henry turns his attention to TPC Boston for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Henry enters the week ranked 78th in the FedExCup standings. He wasn't even a FEC Playoffs threat until winning the Barrcuda Championship, collecting 300 FEC points on the way. On the season, Henry is 17-for-29 but zero top 10s outside of his victory. With limited upside, there are much better fantasy options for gamers this week.

Overnight leader J.J. Henry rallied on the back nine to tally six points in the final round of the Barracuda Championship to match Kyle Reifers in the clubhouse, and then bested the non-winner on the second hole of sudden death.

Henry had a chance to win in regulation with a 12-footer for eagle at the last, but settled for birdie to force the playoff at 47 points. The duo exchanged birdies on the first extra hole (the par-5 18th) before Henry claimed the title with eagle from short of the green on the second playing of the hole. It was his only eagle of the week. Henry began his final frame at 41 points and a one-point margin over two players. He struggled out of the gate, squaring bogeys on three of his first four holes before circling birdie at the sixth to turn in minus-1 point. After three-putting the 11th for his fourth dropped point, he rallied with four birdies over his last seven holes, each from inside six feet. The 40-year-old claims his third career victory in 438 starts as a pro and first since his win here in 2012. The win vaults him to 76th in the FedExCup standings, shores up fully exempt status through 2016-17 and exempts him into this week's PGA Championship.

J.J. Henry racked up 17 points in the third round of the Barracuda Championship to post a 54-hole tally of 41 points, good for a one-point advantage over David Toms.

Henry led by three points after 54 holes en route to his 2012 win in Reno, his last of two career wins on the PGA TOUR (438 starts as a pro). It was the first year and first event the TOUR incorporated the Modified Stableford scoring system since The INTERNATIONAL in 2006. Henry began the day at 24 points (T3), just two points off the pace. He circled nine birdies on his loop, including four consecutive on Nos. 7-10 as well as three straight on 13-15. He book-ended circles at the par-4 first and the par-5 18th to complete his scoring. His lone blemish came at the par-4 12th, after missing the green in regulation, one of four on the day. His set included six conversions from inside eight feet with a long of 19'7" coming at the par-5 eighth. The 40-year-old and Tour grad has not logged a top 10 on the season in 25 starts.

J.J. Henry chased his 13-point opener at the Barracuda Championship with 11 points today to reach the break with 24, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He went out in the first threesome off the first tee at Montrêux Golf and Country Club today, but his two-day total will likely remain near the top of the leaderboard at nightfall today. Henry went 5-for-6 in scrambling with one bogey and scattered six birdies. The longest among five conventional measured just 10'10" at the par-4 10th hole, but the highlight came from off the green and 20 yards away at the par-4 15th.
