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. Mar 31 - 10:56 PM

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.

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.

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.

J.J. Henry smoothed a bogey-free, 11-under-par 32-28=60 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to establish sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

First the X's and the O's. He split eight (of 14) fairways and hit all greens in regulation but one, but he got up and down at the par-4 third hole for his par, sinking the save from just inside eight feet. Elsewhere, he rammed in nine birdies before capping his round with a hole-out for eagle from 17 yards out at the par-5 ninth hole. Five of his birdie conversions dropped in from outside 10 feet, including rolls from 21'7", 27'3" and 20 feet at Nos. 16, 5 and 8, respectively. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting split sat north of a staggering 6.030. Not only it is his personal low on the PGA TOUR and a course record at TPC Summerlin, but he's just the 29th golfer to post a 60 in TOUR history. (Six have carded a 59.)

J.J. Henry will tee it up for the sixth time in Las Vegas for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Henry kicked off 2013-14 in fine fashion at the Open last week, sharing 16th place. In his five previous trips to TPC Summerlin, he's secured four paychecks but none better than a 46th last year. It seems likely that he could post his best finish in Vegas this week, but it's hard to imagine him surpassing last week's T16.

J.J. Henry has gained entry into this week's PGA Championship.

Henry earned a tee time at the 95th edition of this major when pal Mark Brooks withdrew. Henry has enjoyed a profitable summer to qualify for the Playoffs -- he's 96th in FedExCup points -- but he has zero top 40s among four paydays in seven starts in the PGA.

J.J. Henry opened his title defense of the Reno-Tahoe Open with minus-3 points.

This was about as lackluster as it gets. He squared three bogeys and failed to gain any points with par breakers, finishing 18 points off the 18-hole lead. En route to victory at Montreux last year, Henry converted three eagles, 17 birdies and swallowed only six bogeys.

J.J. Henry defends his Reno-Tahoe Open title with form on the rise.

Henry captured the title at Montreux in 2012 in what was the first edition of the Modified Stableford scoring system. Returning to defend is a bit of a backhanded compliment in a way, as most tournament winners find themselves in Akron for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational this week. Henry is trending fairly well, with two top 10s in his last five starts.

J.J. Henry has been removed from the published field of this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

With a T5 at the Travelers and a T7 at the John Deere, he demanded to be among the favorites at Annandale this week. On the strength of those two top 10s, he's risen to 92nd in FedExCup points. NOTE: Brian Bateman and Billy Hurley III also withdrew as alternates, the latter of whom is sticking with his commitment to the Midwest Classic on the Tour.

J.J. Henry signed for a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to finish the week with a top 10 at 17-under 267.

Henry was off to a rocky start with three bogeys to just one birdie in his first 12 holes. He heated up late, picking up four birdies in succession beginning with the par-4 13th. The putter was the key to his week, ranking third in strokes gained-putting.

J.J. Henry polished off a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the John Deere Classic with a birdie from 8'6" on the par-4 18th and is the first to post 15-under 198.

The veteran opened with four birdies on his first eight holes before dropping a shot on the par-4 ninth. He would trade a birdie at 10 with a bogey at 12, then finish his afternoon with three consecutive birdies. It's been all about the flat stick this week, as he leads the field in strokes gained-putting by picking up more than three strokes per round on his competition.
