World No. 395 David Hearn navigated a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open to post 6-under 138, up nine places on the live leaderboard to T3, three in arrears of clubhouse co-leaders Zach Johnson and Ryan Moore. UPDATE: With R2 complete, Hearn is T5.
Playing this season in conditional status, the 38-year-old got in this week as an alternate. It's his seventh VTO, sixth at TPC San Antonio. Hearn's results in the Texas Hill Country are mixed (and alternating), missing cuts in 2011, 2013 and 2017, and finishing T11 in 2012 and T13 in 2016. The Wyoming alum checked in at 178th in the FedExCup standings with four made cuts on the season and one top 25 (T17, RSM). He's missed five cuts, including by 10 at last week's Heritage (81-71). The Canadian opened with a three-birdie, one-bogey 70 and carded five circles on Day 2 against a lone bogey-5 at hole 1. He gained 3.603 strokes on-the-green with 24 total putts, including two conversions from between 17 and 37 feet. Apr 20 - 2:54 PM

Team RBC member David Hearn will get his shot at Harbour Town Golf Links as he preps for this week's RBC Heritage.

Playing on conditional status this year, starts are tough to come by. Lucky for him, he's received a nice sponsor's invite this week, primarily due to his affiliate with the host sponsor, RBC. This canuck is 4-for-8 on the season but just one of those finishes was better than T50. He recently took to Twitter in order to promote his course history at the upcoming Zurich Classic. It is now a team event and he will need to receive a teammate invite in order to crack the field. Hearn is certainly motivated to play his way back into TOUR status but his lack of steady play makes him a risky option in most fantasy formats.

Playing this season on conditional status, World No. 314 David Hearn returns to the Farmers Insurance Open for the first time since 2014 and arrives off a missed cut at the CareerBuilder (by six) on 2-under 214 (71-73-70).

This is the 38-year-old's sixth appearance at the 2-course event and has yet to make the cut. In 10 career rounds on the par-72 layouts, he owns a 72.90 scoring average with only two red numbers. After finishing 128th in the FedExCup standings last season with just two top 10s in 29 starts, the Wyoming alum played in three (of four) Tour Finals' events, cashing one time, a T51, missing one cut and a WD. He's 3-for-5 this season with one top 25 (T17, RSM two starts ago) and ranks 119th in scoring average (71.498).

David Hearn steadied a 2-under-par 34-36=70 during round one of the Sanderson Farms Championship, keeping his name inside the top 10 as he enters the weekend on 6-under 138.

Playing on conditional status, the Canadian could use some top-heavy finishes to kick-start his season. So far, so good, as he's traded 10 birdies with just four bogeys thru 36 holes at the Country Club of Jackson. It hasn't been a breeze, though, splitting just 14 (of 28) fairways to rank T76 in the field and finding just 25 greens in regulation (T59 in the field). Luckily, he's gained 4.482 strokes with the putter to keep his name in the mix. Hearn is making his second appearance at the CC of Jackson, posting a T14 in the 2015 edition. He's well on his way to a similar finish, especially if the ball-striking catches up with the putter.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 197 David Hearn styled a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the Barbasol Championship to throw 10-under 132 on the board, up seven spots on the live leaderboard to T3, five shy of 36-hole leader Chad Collins.

This is the 38-year-old's second appearance after T20 last year (68-68-69-67). He opened with a bogey-free 67 on nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, and improved to 11 fairways and 16 GIR in R2. The University of Wyoming alum gained 3.394 strokes approaching-the-green and 4.045 tee-to-green, but lost 0.214 on-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-6 at five (3-putt from 4'2"), offset by seven birdies at Nos. 10, 11, 13, 14, 2, 7 and 9, two from between 16 and 25 feet, posting 1.625 putts per GIR and 28 total putts.

World No. 192 David Hearn tacked on a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round of The Greenbrier Classic for a two-day total of 6-under 134, down two places on the live leaderboard to T11, six shy of leader Sebastian Munoz.

The 38-year-old found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.899 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 0.840 around-the-green. He circled four birdies at Nos. 5, 9 12 and 14, but nearly cancelled them out with bogey-4 at 3 and double bogey-6 at 11. The University of Wyoming alum's split featured two conversions from between 14 and 17 feet, adding a 54'3" bomb for birdie-3 at 14. He missed three putts from inside of eight feet, two of those scoring tries, posting 1.714 putts per GIR and 0.814 SG: Putting.

David Hearn played his way into a playoff during the 2015 Greenbrier Classic and is right back in contention after a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65 in round one.

The Canadian missed just four (of 14) fairways while landing 15 greens in regulation today. It wasn't just quantity but also quality as he setup 11 scoring chances from inside 19 feet, converting on five. Hearn would also glue the round together with key par-savers from 25'11" and 7'9" at the par-4 16th and par-3 8th, respectively. With three top 20s (including a runner-up finish) already on his Greenbrier resume, Hearn should be one to watch all week as he continues his search for a first PGA TOUR title.

World No. 221 David Hearn patched together a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to finish up on 8-under 272, down one place to a season-best T8.

After kicking off in 67-70-66, the 38-year-old began T7 on 7-under, five back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.173 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.888 tee-to-green. The University of Wyoming alum outpaced three bogey-5s at holes 2, 4 and 14 (failed scrambles) with four birdies at 6, 11 (from 31'6"), 13 and 15, posting 1.769 putts per GIR and 0.968 SG: Putting. This is his first top 25 at the Travelers in three attempts with a previous-best T38 on last visit in 2011, and fifth top 25 of the season in 22 starts and second straight top 10 (T10, FedEx St. Jude).

World No. 221 David Hearn styled a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to reach 7-under 203, up 23 places to T4, one stroke back of 54-hole clubhouse leader C.T. Pan.

This is the 38-year-old's 22nd start of the season, arriving off a season-best T10 at the FedEx St. Jude two weeks ago, his lone top 10. It's his third Travelers and second cash, joining a T38 on last visit in 2011 (66-67-70-68). The University of Wyoming alum opened in 67-70 and striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation on Day 3, gaining 1.825 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.541 tee-to-green. He was bogey-free 5-under thru 17 holes, circling holes 1 (from 25'7"), 7 and 13, and double-circled the drivable par-4 15th, brushing in the deuce from 37'6", before walking off with bogey-5 after missing the fairway and the green. The Canadian posted 1.714 putts per GIR and 0.926 SG: Putting.

World No. 240 David Hearn patched together an even-par 33-37=70 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 6-under 274, down one spot into a season-best T10, four shy of champion Daniel Berger.

After opening in 70-67-67, the 37-year-old began T9 on 6-under, three short of a trio of overnight leaders. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.477 strokes tee-to-green but losing 0.801 on-the-green. The Wyoming alum cancelled three birdies at 1, 3 and 6 with bogeys at 5, 10 and 12, the latter a 3-putt version from 49'7". He improved to 7-for-8 at the St. Jude with two top 25s and nets his first top 10. The Canadian also records his first top 10 of the season in 21 starts.

World No. 240 David Hearn orchestrated a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic for a three-day total of 6-under 204, up 19 places on the live leaderboard to T9.

This is the 37-year-old's eighth appearance with one previous top 25, a T18 in 2013. After opening in 70-67, he improved to 7-for-8 in Memphis, and tied his low lap in 29 career rounds, matching yesterday's effort and a 67/R3 in 2013. The Wyoming alum found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 3.439 strokes tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 11 (3-putt from 42'4"), offset by four birdies at Nos. 1, 2, 9 and 16, three from between eight and 14 feet, posting 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.148 SG: Putting.

David Hearn twirled a 3-under-par 34-35=69 during round two of THE PLAYERS, climbing up to 5-under 139 at the midpoint, good for the current clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Hearn is T5, four back of 36-hole leaders Louis Oosthuizen and Kyle Stanley.

The Canadian fired out of the gates today with four straight approach shots inside 18 feet, converting on one of them. His ball-striking slowed as the round went on, but he would later add a 14'1" birdie splash at the ninth, a hole-out birdie from 33'4" at the 12th, and then drained a 12'3" birdie at the 13th. Hearn's short game did a lot of the damage today. Through two rounds, he surprisingly ranks outside the top 20 in all sub-categories of strokes gained. It is unlikely this lead holds by day's end but if it does, it would be his first 36-hole lead on TOUR. The 37-year-old entered with a 5-for-6 record at TPC Sawgrass.

Canada will be represented well when David Hearn teams up with Graham DeLaet for this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The Canucks are both still searching for their maiden PGA TOUR wins. The duo has a career record of 243-for-375 with 46 top 10s, nine of those doubliing as podium finishes. At this week's venue, TPC Louisiana, Hearn is a perfect 7-for-7 with four top 25s while DeLaet brings a 3-for-4 record including a T4 finish in 2012. With solid course history and stellar long-term pedigree, the Canadians should be right in the thick of things come Sunday afternoon.

David Hearn has withdrawn from the Shell Houston Open, prior to his round one tee time. He will be replaced by alternate Richy Werenski. UPDATE: Hearn welcomed his third child into the world on April 5th and then returned to action at the RBC Heritage.

The Canadian raced out to contention last week in Puerto Rico, opening with a 6-under 66 and following that up with a 3-under 69. He was T11 at the midpoint before drifting to T17 by week's end. It was Hearn's second top 20 over his last three starts, flashing a bit of form after a rough patch to start 2017. There is no injury news at this time, but we will update if that becomes apparent. In his place, Richy Werenski will get his first look at the Golf Club of Houston. UPDATE: Adam Stanley reported on Hearn via Twitter, "He and wife Heather are expecting child no.3, and likely coming soon."

David Hearn raced out to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 during the opening round of the Puerto Rico Open, throwing his name into the early mix on day one.

Playing a rare Puerto Rico Open round without much wind, Hearn took full advantage. The Canadian striped 12 (of 14) fairways and missed just three greens in regulation. He picked off just one birdie on the par 5s and one on the par 3s with the other four coming on the par 4s. Two of Hearn found two greenside bunkers, but he was 2-for-2 in getting up-and-down to maintain a clean card. This round is the lowest of the year for Hearn and lowest since R4 of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, an event that was also played on Paspalum greens.
