David Hearn is preparing to take on TPC Boston in his fourth Deutsche Bank Championship.
The Canuck missed the cut here back in 2005, but his recent returns have been promising. He tied for 26th in 2012 and returned to share 35th last season. Beginning the week 75th in the FedExCup standings, Hearn needs another solid return this week if he hopes to advance to the BMW Championship for the third leg of the Playoffs. He tied for 38th at The Barclays last week. Aug 26 - 9:00 PM

David Hearn has been added to the published field of this week's Open Championship.

Hearn began the week as the first alternate. He gained entry when Mark Calcavecchia withdrew. The Canadian will be making his debut in this major. He's been a steady source of cuts made all year, highlighted by T6s at The Honda Classic and THE PLAYERS. Both sites are hosted by tracks that require precision off the tee, so don't rule him out at Royal Liverpool. NOTE: Daniel Summerhays is now first alternate.

David Hearn returns to a favorable venue for The Greenbrier Classic this week.

The Canadian enjoys The Old White TPC, proven by the pair of top 20s in three attempts. The putter is always the X factor for Hearn, and he's had no problems with these particular greens in the past. In 10 career rounds, he's gained a total of 10.875 strokes-putting on the field. His form looks eerily similar to his form entering last year's John Deere Classic, where he fell just short, losing in a Playoff to Jordan Spieth. Hearn is a very interesting option this week once you look past the top-tier.
Jul 2 - 11:07 AM

David Hearn posted a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Hearn has been consistently strong of late and he's 4-for-4 at TPC Southwind with a career-best T18 last year, so he's at the nexus of converging trends this week. He hit 12 greens in regulation and rallied for five birdies, the longest of the conventional variety measuring 24'9" at the par-4 sixth hole. However, the Canadian also rolled in a four-yarder for birdie from just off the green at the par-4 first to begin his round, and he holed out for birdie from the rough 16 yards away at the par-4 15th. It's breaks like the last one that often pave the way to victory, an achievement that has eluded him in 133 previous starts on the PGA TOUR.
Jun 5 - 1:38 PM

David Hearn produced a final-round 4-under-par 34-32=66 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, ending his week at 4-under 276.

The Canuck bagged seven birdies, but a double bogey and a bogey limited his run up the leaderboard. Four of those seven birdies dropped from outside of 13 feet, with a 28'11" bomb at the par-4 18th highlighting his efforts. Needless to say, he gained just shy of two strokes with the flat stick at the time of his posting. With the players bunched at the top, any player that could circle seven birdies and manage a 66 in the last few twosomes would likely walk away Colonial CC with a win.
May 25 - 12:57 PM

David Hearn answered his opening 67 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 to post 4-under 136, three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He buried four birdies, including conversions from 21'4", 35'4" and 17'2" at the 11th, 14th and sixth holes, respectively. Hearn also squared three bogeys, including a three-putt from inside 46 feet at the par-3 eighth. Fitting for the day, he clinched the red number with a par save from 12'10" at the par-4 ninth, his last hole of the round. Like many contending at the midpoint, the Canadian is still chasing his first PGA TOUR victory.
May 23 - 2:20 PM

David Hearn carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Hearn took a week off after a mildly surprising T6 at THE PLAYERS. All three of his top 10s this season have occurred in his last nine starts. Seemingly poised to pad the total at Colonial, the Canadian hit 12 greens and circled five birdies today. He got the show started with a birdie conversion from 16'4" at the par-5 first hole. Birdies at 2, 7 and 13 helped offset bogeys at 9 and 12 before he dropped a zero-putt nine-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 17th.
May 22 - 7:44 PM

David Hearn posted a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to end the week inside the top 10 at 9-under 279.

The Canadian picked up three birdies on his first nine holes at TPC Sawgrass, with an 11'11" effort at the par-5 ninth the only one outside of two feet. His back nine was steady, with eight pars giving way to just one bogey on the difficult par-4 14th. Perhaps the best news for Hearn is that he's essentially locked up his PGA TOUR card for 2013-14 with his performance this week. He entered the week ranked 78th in the FedExCup standings but now projects 66th. There is really very little for him left to accomplish outside of a breakthrough victory.
May 11 - 7:22 PM

David Hearn fired a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to join Francesco Molinari in the clubhouse lead at 7-under 209.

Of Hearn's five birdies, the two that came on the par 5s were the highlights. He found the bottom of the cup from 10'7" on the second and 13'7" on the 11th. His only blemish of the day was a bogey at the par-4 sixth, when he failed to scramble for par from off the green. Accuracy was the key to his round, as he missed just one of TPC Sawgrass' fairways all day. He also gained well over two strokes with the flat stick. He will try and earn his first PGA TOUR victory in Sunday's final round.
May 10 - 4:09 PM

David Hearn enters the RBC Heritage ranked 73rd in the FedExCup standings.

The Canadian has had mixed results in his nine career rounds at Harbour Town Golf Links, carding rounds under par in four of them. His prowess with the putter, ranking 34th in strokes gained-putting, should guide him to his third made cut here in what will be his fourth attempt.
Apr 15 - 11:01 AM

David Hearn corralled an even-par 37-34=71 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to end his week at 2-under 282.

The Canadian had a chance to post the clubhouse lead on Sunday, but failed to record a par on the difficult 18th. His round featured three birdies and two additional bogeys, splitting 10 (of 13) fairways on a windy day at the Copperhead Course. This is his second top 10 in the last three weeks, and extends his top-25 streak to three.
Mar 16 - 4:51 PM

David Hearn signed for a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Valspar Championship.

The Canuck's scorecard included 15 pars, with the monotony broken up by 14-foot birdie on the par-5 fifth, a 15'6" birdie on the par-5 14th and a bogey on the difficult par-4 18th after a poor drive into a fairways bunker. This is his third trip to the Copperhead Course, missing the cut in his first two tries. His 2-under 211 has him positioned for a top 10 should he produce a solid final round.
Mar 15 - 5:10 PM

David Hearn turned in an even-par 36-35=71 for his opening round of the Valspar Championship, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

We aren't normally highlighting clubhouse leaders that don't break par, so scoring conditions are challenging as expected today. It's cool and windy at Copperhead. The Canadian split 11 (of 13) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. He traded two birdies, his longest measuring just 10'9" at the par-4 10th hole (his first of the day), with two bogeys (at 17 and 18). To emphasize what a grind it was out there, Hearn whiffed on five tries inside 10 feet, two of which leading to the bogeys. He entered the week with momentum after a T6 at the Honda and a T24 in Puerto Rico.
Mar 13 - 12:55 PM

David Hearn crafted a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in the final round of The Honda Classic to finish the tournament at 6-under 274.

It looked like the Canadian was off to a sterling round, circling four birdies without a blemish in his first seven holes, but his pace slowed considerably down the stretch. In all, his six birdies outpaced three bogeys. Hearn has struggled to churn out high finishes in 2013-14, with a T21 at the Open to start the year serving as his best entering this week. While the details are still being sorted out, it appears a lock that he will leave PGA National with the best finish of his season. The putter was the biggest reason as to why, with his 1.634 putting average ranking easily inside the top 10 for the week while gaining just shy of two strokes per round on the field this week at the time of his posting.
Mar 2 - 2:54 PM

David Hearn posted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of The Honda Classic.

He's 5-for-9 on the season and sits 120th in FedExCup points, but he's logged only one top-35 finish and that was merely a T21 at the Open. So, consider him due for a good week. Hearn split 10 (of 14) fairways but hit only 11 greens in regulation at PGA National today. Yet, he managed to erase two bogeys with five birdies, including rolls of 13'10" and 21'5" at the 14th and first holes, respectively. His longest conversion dropped in for par from 31'9" at the par-3 seventh where his tee ball found the rough pin-high left of the green. The Canadian walked off four strokes back of the overnight lead.
