Heath Slocum turned in a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to finish alone in fourth at 15-under 265.
His trip around Sedgefield CC was a wild one, featuring four birdies, two eagles and five bogeys. Highlighting Slocum's work were 18'10" and 10'8" eagles on the par-5 fifth and 15th holes and birdies from 11'7" and 34'7" on the par-4 13th and par-3 16th holes. He had plenty for which to play, entering the week 158th in the FedExCup standings. While he did not crack the top 125 to earn a spot in the Playoffs, he did finish in the 126-150 range which allows him conditional status on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15. Aug 17 - 5:45 PM

Heath Slocum could only muster a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship and trails Nick Watney by two strokes at 12-under 198.

Slocum picked up two birdies and surrendered one bogey on each side at Segefield CC. Three of those birdies fell from outside of 10 feet, with a 36'1" bomb at the par-4 10th standing above the others. He landed 15 GIR on Saturday, and ranks inside the top 10 in driving accuracy and GIR for the tournament. He began the week at 158th in the FedExCup standings, and will likely need a solo third or better to crack the top 125 for inclusion into the FEC Playoffs.

Heath Slocum chased his opening 65 at the Wyndham Championship with another in today's second round to set the new 36-hole clubhouse lead at 10-under 130.

Slocum carded respective nines of 33 and 32 today with seven birdies against two bogeys spanning the sides. Three of his birdies traveled longer than 10 feet, the most notable ranging 21'8" and the eighth hole and 20'5" at 13, both par 4s. Everything is clicking for the veteran. Through 36 holes, he's missed only five (of 28) fairways and seven greens in regulation, and possessed a average strokes gained-putting split just north of 2.750 at the time he concluded today's work.

Heath Slocum toured Sedgefield Country Club's Donald Ross Course in 5-under-par 31-34=65 in today's opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

Like to many in the field, Slocum is fighting for status this week. He's 158th in the FedExCup standings with only two top 25s on the season, neither of which went for a top 15. But like so many veterans needing a big week, he showed up to work today and equaled his season-low aggregate. Slocum split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens en route to six birdies against a three-putt bogey from just inside 29 feet at the par-3 third hole. His longest birdies stretched 11'11" at the par-3 12th and 12'1" at the par-4 17th. The four-time PGA TOUR winner walked off one stroke adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Heath Slocum returns to the RBC Canadian Open for his second look at Royal Montreal Golf Club.

Slocum is finding some form just in time for a late season playoff run. Currently sitting outside the FedExCup bubble at 149th place, he has rallied for six straights cuts made. Prior to the course renovations, Slocum took home 70th place at Royal Montreal Golf Club in the 2001 Canadian Open. Gamers should expect a decent showing this week but also remember that his last top 15 came in October of 2012 at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Heath Slocum has been added to the published field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

Slocum was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry due to two withdrawals this morning. After opening the Travelers with a 4-under-par 66, he turned in progressively higher scores to drift into a five-way share of 46th place and remain outside the top 150 in both FedExCup points and earnings. Slocum placed T34 in his last trip to Congressional in 2012.

Heath Slocum opened the Travelers Championship with a 4-under-par 33-33=66, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Slocum went out in the first threesome off the first tee at TPC River Highlands this morning and promptly set the tone with a par save from 17'7" on the par 4. While it wasn't a red number, it perhaps sparked some momentum as he would go on to trade six birdies with two bogeys. Three of his conventional birdies dropped in from outside 11 feet, the longest measuring 36'8" at the par-3 16th. But Slocum also holed out for birdie from a greenside bunker 15 yards away at 5 and rolled in a zero-putt jobber from four yards at 6. He arrived in town sitting outside the top 150 in both FedExCup points and earnings. Today's score is his lowest on the PGA TOUR since a third-round 65 at Waialae over five months ago.

Heath Slocum makes his 12th start in the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial after a one-year break.

Slocum played 11 consecutive CPIs before failing to qualify for the field last year. History hasn't been all that kind to him, as he's made just six of 11 cuts and doesn't have a top 25 on his resume. Since a T20 at the Sony Open in early January, he has missed seven of his nine cuts with nothing better than a T60 at Quail Hollow.

Heath Slocum makes his third start at TPC Louisiana in this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Slocum got off to a very nice start to the season with three top-40 finishes in his first five starts, but you can now see his comeback season fading away. The grad sits at 24th in the reshuffle and 158th in the FedExCup standings. He will attempt to improve on his 0-for-2 TPC Louisiana record this week.
Apr 22 - 10:23 AM

Heath Slocum submitted a 2-under-par 36-34=70 for his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

Just 4-for-9 on the season and 145th in the FedExCup standings, Slocum doesn't shape up as a viable fantasy investment. Toss into the mix that his scoring average among four rounds at TPC San Antonio was 77.75 (with no lower than a 74) and he qualifies as a mild surprise today. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, picking off three birdies against a three-putt bogey from 28'7" at the par-3 13th hole. His longest conversion went for birdie from 11'9" at the par-5 18th hole -- his ninth of the round -- but he also poured in a par save from 11'4" at 11. Slocum is two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Heath Slocum will join the field at the Valero Texas Open for the third consecutive year.

Slocum is 0-for-2 at the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio but that won't stop him from trying again. He is only $11,604 shy of doubling his entire 2013 PGA TOUR earnings, so it's been a nice comeback campaign thus far despite missing more cuts than he's made (five MCs in nine starts). He's currently 124th in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 24 - 11:34 PM

Heath Slocum has gained entry into this week's Honda Classic.

Slocum started the week as the fifth alternate. He climbed into the field of 144 when Louis Oosthuizen withdrew. The American has missed his last three cuts and didn't break par in any of his last seven rounds. He's 2-for-5 at PGA National but neither payday was as a result of a top 40.
Feb 26 - 2:31 PM

Heath Slocum has made three of his last four cuts in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, and is back for another dose this week.

Slocum's first trip to Pebble Beach Golf Links was in 2002, missing the cut badly. He didn't return until 2010, but has enjoyed a modicum of success since. He had tied for 30th, 35th and 40th to go with a missed cut. Perhaps a 25th or a 45th is in line this week.
Feb 5 - 8:34 PM

Heath Slocum is off and running in 2013-14 in what could become a career revitalization.

Slocum was not fully exempt in 2013 and was forced to play out of the 126-150 category thanks to his position on the 2012 money list. Since he picked his card back up via the Tour Finals, he is subject to the reshuffle. Perhaps the sense of urgency has set in, as he has already made more money in four starts this season with $104,250 than he did in nine starts last season. His T16 at The McGladrey Classic was his best finish since a T13 in the 2012 Shriners at TPC Summerlin.

Heath Slocum posted a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic.

Slocum's most recent of four PGA TOUR victories occurred in the inaugural edition of this tournament in 2010. Now fully exempt on the circuit again (via the Tour Finals), he's just 1-for-2 with a T40 at CordeValle, but today's effort could kick-start an enjoyable holiday break that begins in two weeks. He hit 14 greens in regulation and buried six birdies, five of which ranging from 11'11"-17'10", but squared three bogeys and missed four putts inside nine feet. The net result was a strokes gained-putting split just north of 0.170 at the time he signed his card sitting four strokes off the clubhouse lead.
