David Hearn shot a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of The RSM Classic to conclude his fourth appearance at 10-under 272, good for a nine-way tie for ninth place and down two places on the day.
In a post-round tweet (link below), Hearn bid a fond farewell to his anchored broom-stick putter and heads to the holiday break preparing for the anchoring ban that takes effect on January 1, 2016. The long flat stick netted him eighth this week in putts per green in regulation and 17th in strokes gained: putting. The 36-year-old circled two the conventional way in the finale on Nos. 15 and 16, from 3'10" and 8'4", respectively, and chipped-in for birdie-4 at the seventh. He dropped a shot at the fourth after a missed green, and again at the 14th following an approach into the native area and a penalty drop but he canned the 15-footer to limit the damage. The Canadian's previous best at Sea Island was T40 in 2014. Nov 22 - 8:38 PM

David Hearn fashioned a 6-under-par 31-33=64 on the Seaside Course at Sea Island Resort in his opening round of The RSM Classic, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

The Canuck went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee and walked off atop the leaderboard. He connected for seven birdies, including a pitch-in from 17 yards away at the par-3 12th hole. Hearn also rolled in a trio of tries from outside 13 feet, the longest taping off at 17'7" at the par-4 10th to spark the round. He also went 5-for-6 in scrambling with one bogey. In his post-round interview on Golf Channel, he said that the absence of wind in conjunction with preferred lies aided scoring. He'll take on the Plantation Course on Friday where he stands to pile on given it's a par 72 with four par 5s.

David Hearn lapped the West Course at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club in bogey-free, 7-under-par 35-30=65 in today's second round of the CIMB Classic.

After co-leading last week's Shriners after a first-round 64, the Canuck drifted into massive tie for 25th place. He then opened birdie-birdie in Malaysia before see-sawing his way to a 2-under 70 on Thursday. Today, he buried seven birdies, but didn't find a groove until after the turn, sinking six of those par breakers on his inward side (the front half of the course). So, at 9-under 135, Hearn rests five shots off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Oct 30 - 2:05 AM

First-round quad-leader David Hearn settled for a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in his second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

He checked up at 8-under 134, two back of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. That deficit was created with a double bogey at the par-3 17th hole where he needed to whacks to escape a greenside bunker. Prior to it, the Canadian was 6-for-6 in scrambling with three birdies. His set included an eight-yarder from just off the green at the par-4 sixth hole and a conventional conversion measuring 16'4" at the par-5 13th. At last check, the confidence putter ranked second in the field in strokes gained on the greens with an aggregate clip of 5.563.

David Hearn walked off TPC Summerlin with three straight birdies en route to a 7-under-par 33-31=64 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

Hearn's closing circles consisted of respective conversions from 14 feet, 18'6" and 17'8" at Nos. 7, 8 and 9, but seven of his eight birdies disappeared from outside 11 feet. His longest measured 25-and-a-half feet at the par-5 13th hole. He bogeyed the only hole where he didn't hit the green in regulation -- the par-3 17th -- but maximized on his chances statistically. At last check, his strokes gained: putting read 4.142, good for second-highest in the field. The 36-year-old is coming off his best season, but he's winless in 172 PGA TOUR starts. He's always been a terrific putter, so it makes sense that if he's going to break through, it would happen in a putting contest like the Shriners.

David Hearn heads to Lake Forest, Illinois, for his third appearance in the BMW Championship and enters the tournament ranked 59th in the FedExCup standings.

Hearn settled for solo third on native soil at the RBC Canadian Open where he lead by two after 54 holes. Three starts prior, he lost in a three-man playoff at The Greenbrier Classic but notched his second runner-up finish in 170 career starts. His previous was at the 2013 John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois, so he has enjoyed past success in the state. Since the RBC, he's posted CUT (PGA Championship), T45 (The Barclays), and CUT (Deutsche Bank). At the BMW, the 36-year-old went T65 in his 2012 debut (Crooked Stick GC) where he closed in 77-76, and T28 in 2013 (Conway Farms GC) on rounds of 72-68-71-71. Hearn has one top-25 finish in 11 career Playoffs events (T10, 2012 Barclays) and has yet to advance to the season-ending TOUR Championship. His season-best finish in the FEC standings was 56th in 2013.
Sep 16 - 7:05 AM

Overnight leader David Hearn settled for an even-par 35-37=72 in the finale of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude at 15-under 273, good for solo third and two shots back of champion Jason Day.

Hearn began his final round at 15-under and a two-stroke advantage over Day and playing partner Bubba Watson. Looking to become the first Canadian to win the RBC in 61 years (Pat Fletcher/1954), he opened birdie-birdie despite wildly missing his first two fairways. The storybook beginning ended abruptly with bogey on the third after missing the fairway for a third consecutive hole. After pars on Nos. 4-6, Hearn lost the lead (to Day) after squaring his second bogey on seven. The 36-year-old had three legit chances to respond on Nos. 8, 10 and 11, each from inside 15 feet, but missed them all. He exchanged one last birdie (at 13) with a third bogey at 12 to play his last seven holes in even, opening the door for Day. Hearn landed just seven (of 14) fairways, hit 12 greens in regulation, and after leading the field in strokes gained: putting thru three rounds, ended with a -0.705 on Sunday. His consolation is a career-best finish in 13 Canadian Opens, brushing aside a T20 in 2006.
Jul 26 - 6:33 PM

Canadian David Hearn tacked on a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and his 54-hole aggregate of 15-under 201 is good for a two-shot margin over Bubba Watson and Jason Day.

Hearn began the day in a two-way tie for third (11-under) and three shots back. On his round, he found the short grass just six (of 14) times and hit 12 greens in regulation, registering 1.583 putts per GIR, currently No. 1 in that stat thru three rounds. Hearn entered the third round first in strokes gained: putting and at last check remained in that position with a cumulative 9.434. Playing in the penultimate pairing, the Canuck circled birdies at Nos. 2, 7 (from 23'11") and 8 to turn in 3-under. He added par breakers on 15 and 16 before squaring his lone bogey at the 17th. The 36-year-old is playing in his 13th RBC posting a personal-best T20 in 2006. His season-best (25 starts) was T2 at The Greenbrier Classic. Hearn is in the pole position to become the first Canadian to win this tournament since Pat Fletcher in 1954.

David Hearn connected for eight birdies en route to a bogey-free, 8-under-par 33-31=64 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open.

With countryman Graham DeLaet having withdrawn this morning due to injury, Hearn slides into the spot as top-ranked golfer from Canada still active in his national championship. He proved that he has the shoulders to bear the weight in today's walk around Glen Abbey. The 36-year-old hit 14 greens in regulation and birdied all four par 5s. Five of his eight birdies disappeared from 11 feet or longer, the highlight stretching 26'10" at the par-4 eighth hole. Today's aggregate matches his career low in 543 PGA TOUR rounds; it's the sixth occurrence. He's winless in 166 starts, but will enter the weekend also attempting to become the first Canadian to win this tournament since Pat Fletcher in 1954.
Jul 24 - 12:17 PM

David Hearn readies for his national championship at this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The Canuck arrives with confidence despite a missed cut at last week's Open Championship. Just three starts ago he feasted on The Old White TPC on his way to a runner-up finish at the Greenbrier. Hearn started his Canadian Open career with four straight missed cuts but is 7-for-8 since. Gamers can proceed with confidence.
Jul 22 - 8:06 PM

David Hearn crafted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to match Kevin Kisner, Robert Streb and Danny Lee's 13-under 267 total and then lost on the second playoff hole to Lee.

Hearn came to the 18th hole needing birdie to win in regulation but missed from 12'3", settling for his second career playoff appearance (loss 2013 John Deere Classic). The Canadian matched Lee's birdie on the first playoff hole (par-3 18th), calmly draining nearly the exact same putt that would have won it for him in regular time, thereby eliminating Kisner and Streb. The 36-year-old made a mess of the second sudden-death hole however (par-5 17th), opening the door for Lee to take the title with par. Hearn began the day at 10-under (T5) and one shot off the 54-hole lead. He outbalanced two bogeys with five birdies at Nos. 4, 7, 10, 13 and 16, concluding the week first in strokes gained: putting, and T1 in strokes gained: total. The 36-year-old's runner-up pushed aside his previous season-best T6 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans as well as a personal-best T12 at the 2012 Greenbrier.
Jul 5 - 7:52 PM

David Hearn submitted a 2-under-par 34-34=68 after today's third round of The Greenbrier Classic and sits just one off the pace.

Hearn opened 68-68-68 in last year's Greenbrier before crashing to a final-round 76 and an eventual T64-finish. He's enjoyed other success at The Old White TPC as well, with top 25s in 2011 (T18) and 2012 (T12), so it's not a reach to see him at 10-under 200 after 54 holes. Hearn, 88th in the FedExCup standings, began his third round at 8-under (T3) and one stroke adrift. On his round, he peppered 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. The Canadian sits at a cumulative 7.595 strokes gained: putting, second in that category thru 54 holes. The 36-year-old overshadowed two bogeys with four birdies with each of his par breakers coming from inside nine feet. His season-best on 22 starts is T6 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and he owns a career-best P2 at the 2013 John Deere Classic (163 starts).
Jul 4 - 7:16 PM

David Hearn spun a 6-under-par 30-34=64 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic, reaching the halfway point in 8-under 132, one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Canuck was feelin' it today. He hit 15 greens in regulation and poured in seven birdies, six of which on his first eight holes. He opened with three consecutive birdies ranging 10-16 feet on the back side of The Old White TPC. His remaining trio on his outward nine ranged 12-17 feet. Alas, he squared a bogey at the par-3 eighth to taint the card, but Hearn led the field in strokes gained: putting at last check with an aggregate measurement of 6.711. He'll enter the weekend in his latest pursuit of victory No. 1 on the PGA TOUR in what is his 164th start.
Jul 3 - 6:37 PM

David Hearn heads into this week's U.S. Open ranked 80th in the FedExCup standings.

The University of Wyoming product arrives at Chambers Bay with more ups than downs this season, missing just eight (of 21) cuts. He does most of his work on the putting surfaces as he averages a mere 279.8 yards off the tee, attributing to his -0.058 strokes gained:tee-to-green. Gamers should look elsewhere this week as Hearn will need to be close to perfect if he wants to overcome the pure length of this venue.
Jun 15 - 8:21 PM

Try as he might but David Hearn survived the cut on the number at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Hearn impressed with a 66 in the opener but blew up for a birdie-free, 5-over-par 35-40=75 in today's second round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and went an astonishing 0-for-14 in scoring chances on Friday. Still sitting pretty despite one bogey on his first 17 holes, the Canadian rinsed his approach at the par-4 18th. He'd roll another back into the water when a chip failed to clear the bank facing the green. Eventually, Hearn coaxed in a 50-inch putt for quadruple bogey to post 1-over 141. As one of 15 tied for 66th place, a second cut of low 70 and ties will occur at the conclusion of 54 holes. With the threat of inclement weather on Saturday, players will go off split tees beginning at 7:00 a.m. CT. The final group is scheduled to begin on No. 1 at 9:10 a.m.
