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With countryman Graham DeLaet having withdrawn this morning due to injury, Hearn slides into the spot as top-ranked golfer from Canada still active in his national championship.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.

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.

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.

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.

David Hearn turned in a 4-under-par 35-31=66 for his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

With a pair of top 25s in his last three trips to Fort Worth and now his fourth 66 or lower in 15 rounds of competition, Colonial Country Club is on the short list of tracks where the Canadian is most likely to secure his first win on the PGA TOUR, assuming it happens. He opened today with a 22-yard hole-out from well off the green at the par-4 10th. Hearn gave it back with his only bogey of the walk at the par-3 16th before finding four birdies coming in. The longest of the lot stretched 17'11" at the par-3 eighth.
May 21 - 5:27 PM

David Hearn shot a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of THE PLAYERS and his 8-under 208 has him just two shots off the pace.

Hearn ended the day exactly where he began, two shots back of the lead. He methodically found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation on his way to a three birdie, one bogey loop. His set included a 6'9" roll for his first birdie on the par-4 sixth and was followed by a bomb from 32'3" on the par-5 ninth. The 35-year-old Canadian would save his best for last however, following eight consecutive pars on his inward half with a 12-footer that disappeared in the cup at the last. Although finishing T6 in his last start at the Zurich Classic and T6 in last year's PLAYERS, Hearn is surprising the majority with his play so far this week.
May 9 - 9:16 PM

Overnight co-leader David Hearn followed his opening 67 at THE PLAYERS with a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in today's second round to post 6-under 138.

Hearn hit only 11 greens in regulation today but suffered only two bogeys. Elsewhere, he converted three birdies, including a zero-putt four-yarder at the par-3 17th. Overall, he's missed 12 GIR and limited the damage to three bogeys. It's a formula that has yielded a share of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 8 - 12:55 PM

David Hearn spun a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS to share the clubhouse lead with Hideki Matsuyama.

The Canuck tied for sixth here last year to make it 3-for-3 at TPC Sawgrass. With today's extension of that course form, there's something to say for his value in this tournament. Hearn split only seven (of 14) fairways, but he manufactured 13 scoring opportunities. He converted five times, the longest dropping for eagle from 18'5" at the par-5 11th hole. Two of his other four ranged 13-17 feet, including a walk-off birdie from just inside 14 feet at the par-5 ninth.
May 7 - 5:33 PM

David Hearn crafted a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's final round at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 18-under 270 and finish in a two-way tie for sixth.

Hearn began his final frame at 14-under (T5) and two shots adrift of the 54-hole lead. On his round he split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to his five birdie, one bogey loop. The 35-year-old's streak of consecutive sub-par rounds at TPC Louisiana now stands at 12. Hearn hit 63 GIR on the week to finish first in that stat and converted 21 birdies against three bogeys. His T6 marks a season-best finish in 16 TOUR starts.
Apr 26 - 7:46 PM

David Hearn crafted a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the Zurich Classic to post 14-under 202.

With today's third round, Hearn has now bagged 11 consecutive sub-par rounds at TPC Louisiana. The 35-year-old started the festivities at 9-under (T13) and three shots back of the 36-hole leader. On his loop, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation. The Canuck circled five birdies (four on the front) with his set ranging 23 inches (sticking his approach from 115 yards out on No. 8) to 12'2".
