J.J. Henry has crashed the field at this week's Honda Classic.
Henry went 4-for-4 on the West Coast Swing with a T11 at the Farmers. That consistency translated into a boost of 14 spots in the Tour graduate category when it reshuffled at the conclusion of the Northern Trust Open. Now 19th in the pecking order, he's the last golfer to crack the field of 144 on merit. He could use the good vibes of this in-season promotion at PGA National since the 39-year-old has missed the cut in his last two trips. Feb 23 - 11:08 AM

J.J. Henry emerged with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the host course.

And he hit only 11 greens in regulation. One of his misses occurred at the par-4 third where he holed out anyway for birdie from the rough 17 yards away. Elsewhere, Henry circled an eagle and four more birdies before coming to rest just one stroke off the clubhouse lead. He's enjoyed a nice run since the fall, having cashed in five straight starts entering the week. He'll make his next move to extend the streak at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course in Friday's second round.

J.J. Henry crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 on Torrey Pines North in his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Henry is making his 14th appearance at Torrey Pines where he has one top 25 and has missed seven cuts, so continue to hold your breath if you're on board. Today was refreshing, however, as he hit 16 greens in regulation and circled four birdies. The 39-year-old is four strokes off the clubhouse lead as he prepares for the South Course on Friday.

J.J. Henry chased his opening 65 at the Sony Open in Hawaii with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round to post 8-under 132 at the midpoint, two strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

While scoring was low again on Oahu, Henry will be pleased with his position once night falls. He went 5-for-6 in scrambling with a bogey at the par-4 15th hole while picking off four birdies. The set featured birdies on both par 5s for the second straight day. His longest conversion dropped for par from 14'2" at No. 14.
Jan 16 - 9:22 PM

J.J. Henry posted a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

The veteran went out in the first threesome on the first hole at Waialae Country Club this morning, so his number won't hold up at the conclusion of the day. Nevertheless, he walked off with confidence thanks to a birdie-birdie-birdie finish. Overall, he hit 14 greens in regulation and poured in six birdies, three of which from outside 10 feet; the longest strethced 15 feet at No. 2. He also converted a bogey putt from just inside 12 feet at the par-4 sixth to limit what would be the only damage of the day. It's Henry's lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he carded the same score in the third round of last year's Humana Challenge. He hasn't had a top 10 on the circuit since the 2013 John Deere Classic.
Jan 15 - 4:26 PM

J.J. Henry entered the winter break of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season ranked 143rd in the FedExCup standings.

Henry managed to make three of his five cuts in the early going, with a T43 at the Sanderson Farms Championship edging out a T44 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba for the best result. The veteran survived the Tour Finals to earn his full status for the season. He is a two-time winner over the span of his 418 career starts on the big stage.

J.J. Henry has four top-25 finishes in five trips to the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and is back for more this week.

While Henry has made just two of four cuts, failing to crack the top 40, his return to El Camaleón Golf Club should spark some solid play. He's broken par in 16 of his 20 rounds, and has always done so in at least three of the four rounds of each event. His highlight was a runner-up in 2009, and he also had a T9 in 2012

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.

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.

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.
