David Hearn and Adam Hadwin have united ahead of this week's World Cup of Golf, hoping to draft of the recent success of fellow Canadian Mackenzie Hughes.
Hearn and Hadwin will surely be inspired by the recent RSM Classic victory by their fellow countryman. Hadwin will be making his debut at the World Cup of Golf while Hearn finished T8 in the individual portion of the 2013 edition. Overall, him and Brad Fritch finished fifth on the final team leaderboard. In terms of recent play, Hadwin is carrying the load for the team with three straight top 30s heading into the week. Meanwhile, Hearn has looked out of sorts during the Fall, missing the cut in 3-of-4 events and posting a T66 in his other appearance. Team Canada has won this event three times, but none since 1985. While the Hadwin & Hearn pairing isn't a knockout on paper, they certainly have the talent and motivation to make a deep run this week. Nov 22 - 4:25 PM

David Hearn styled a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during the weather-delayed first round of the BMW Championship, placing him two strokes off the early pacesetter Roberto Castro.

The Canadian did all of his work after the tee shot, in round one. After losing 0.201 strokes off-the-tee, he recovered to land 15 greens and splash home a few key putts. It all started with a 14-footer to open his round at the par-4 first. He would stretch it out to 34'8" for birdie at the par-5 11th. Hearn saved the best for last, though, holing out from 52'4" for birdie at the par-4 18th to walk off Crooked Stick in style. Hearn entered the week way outside the TOUR Championship bubble (59th) and needs a podium finish to have a chance to advance to East Lake in two weeks.

David Hearn roller-coastered his way to the finish line at the Deutsche Bank Championship en route to a 1-under-par 33-37=70, finishing inside the top 10 on the week with a 9-under 275.

The Canadian struggled off the tee today as he battled the wind at TPC Boston. He split just six (of 14) fairways to lose 1.69 strokes off-the-tee. From there, he recovered nicely, sticking three approach shots to inside two feet, all coming from outside 110 yards. On the week, his biggest asset was his flat stick, gaining 6.474 strokes putting to rank second in the field. Making his fourth start at TPC Boston this week, this beats his previous best of T26 which came in his 2012 debut. Moving from 92nd to 60th in the FedExCup projections, Hearn will head to Crooked Stick next week where he finished T65 back in 2012.
Sep 5 - 1:41 PM

Olympian David Hearn is at TPC Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship and checks in at 92nd in the FedExCup standings.

The University of Wyoming alum is making his fifth straight appearance (in the FEC era), with a best of T26 on debut in 2012. He missed his only cut last year (by two) after rounds of 73-74. The 37-year-old has eight top 25s this season in 27 events but only one top 10, a T9 at The RSM Classic 23 starts ago. He arrives off a T53 (Barclays), MC (Wyndham), and a T30 (of 59 players) at the Rio Olympics. The Canadian leads the TOUR in Proximity to Hole (32'6") but is 109th in Birdie Average (3.46).

David Hearn will be a crowd favorite this week at he takes on Glen Abbey Golf Club at this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The Brantford, Ontario, native will be just an hour from home this week as he makes his 14th appearance in his national open. Last year he finished in third place here at Glen Abbey, his first top 10 at this event. Hearn arrives this week with top 30s in seven of his last nine starts so it's safe to say he's finally settled down after the slow transition following the anchored-putter ban in January. His current form combined with local knowledge makes him a serious threat to contend this week in Oakville, Ontario. Gamers should not overlook the Canadian this week.

David Hearn rocketed up the leaderboard with a 4-under-par 35-32=67 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National, reaching 5-under 137 on the week.

The Canadian dropped two shots early in the round on putts missed inside seven feet, but rebounded nicely. Despite those short misses in the beginning of the round, he walked off the course gaining 3.037 strokes putting. It's easy to see why as he splashed home seven putts from outside six feet, four putts from outside 11 feet. The most notable was a 23'3" birdie bomb on the par-5 ninth hole. This goes in the books as Hearn's 15th cut made this season, in 23 attempts.
Jun 24 - 5:08 PM

David Hearn manhandled Muirfield Village Golf Club on his way to a 6-under-par 35-31=66 during the opening round of this week's Memorial.

The Canadian missed just one fairways today and that helped him land 14 greens in regulation. His two bogeys came as a result of missed putts from inside seven feet but his flat stick wasn't dormant all day. In fact, he splashed four putts from outside eight feet, two from outside 24 feet. That includes a walk-off 32'6" birdie bomb at the par-4 18th hole. The highlight of the round came through the air, though, as he holed out a 195-yard approach shot for eagle at the par-4 10th hole. Gamers were likely not surprised by this effort as he arrived with top 30s in four of his last five starts and top 30s in three of his four appearances at Muirfield Village.
Jun 2 - 6:24 PM

David Hearn compiled a 3-under-par 33-34=67 to kick off his week at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

The Canadian started on the back nine and circled birdies at the par-4 12th and par-4 14th holes, firing in putts from 9'2" and 12 feet. He found trouble in the rough on the par-4 17th, leading to one of his two bogeys on the round. The real highlight came right after the turn when he landed his 247-yard approach shot to 29'8" on the par-5 first and rolled it in a lengthy eagle. Hearn arrived at Colonial Country Club with a 4-for-5 record that included a pair of top 25s, and he's off and running again this week.
May 26 - 6:41 PM

David Hearn authored a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the three-day third (and final) round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 8-under 208, up 14 places on the live leaderboard to T20.

This was Hearn's seventh appearance at TPC Louisiana and is likely to depart Monday with his fourth top 25. He began the third round on Saturday in a tie for 38th place on 4-under after laps of 69-71. The 36-year-old, whose best in NOLA is T6 last year, split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit a week-best 14 greens in regulation, though a pedestrian 0.092 strokes gained: tee-to-green at last glance. He circled four, all from inside of 12 feet, and makes a quick turnaround to this week's Wells Fargo after posting his 17th consecutive sub-par round at the Zurich.,
May 2 - 11:04 AM

David Hearn prepares for his seventh Zurich Classic of New Orleans and arrives at 98th in the FedExCup standings.

Gamers will be giving the Canadian serious consideration this week as he's a perfect 6-for-6 in NOLA and has put his last 14 rounds in the red and 20 of 24 overall. The 36-year-old rallied for a T13 at last week's Valero after making the 36-hole cut on the number, and was his third cash in his last four starts and second top 25. He ranked fourth in proximity (28'9") and T9 in birdie average at 4.50.

David Hearn authored a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in today's second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a two-day tally of 6-under 138, up 45 places on the live leaderboard to T5, seven in arrears of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jason Day.

This is Hearn's 13th start of the season and fourth straight Palmer Invite. He's 6-for-12 in 2015-16, but five of his six missed cuts have come in his last six starts, cashing only a T30 at the AT&T Pebble Beach during this stretch. The 36-year-old began with a three-birdie two-bogey 71 and chased with four birdies and an eagle to erase a lone bogey on the par-3 14th. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation, circling birdies on Nos. 8, 10, 12 and 17. His most memorable moment was the eagle on the par-5 16th, dropping a 57-footer for the 3. The Canadian's season best -- and only top 10 -- is a T9 at The RSM Classic.
Mar 18 - 2:41 PM

David Hearn kept the pace in round two of the AT&T Pro-Am with a 2-under-par 36-34=70 while playing at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Still adjusting to life without an anchored putter, the Canadian took the flat stick out of the equation today as he walked off the 18th green with 3.781 strokes gained:tee-to-green. He gained those by striping 10 (of 14) fairways and landing 13 greens in regulation. Hearn finished his round five back of the current leaders, and is certainly in the thick of things as he turns his attention to Spyglass Hill Golf Club on Saturday.
Feb 12 - 4:16 PM

David Hearn stepped on the gas with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 during the first round of this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

You can take the anchor out of the putter, but you can't take the putter of the man. Playing his first event without the ability to anchor, Hearn settled for 0.444 strokes gained with the flat stick. Instead, he opted to step up his tee-to-green game, gaining a whopping 3.164 strokes in that department at the time he closed out his round. This is a great first step, but gamers should really monitor his putting performance moving forward.
Jan 14 - 7:16 PM

David Hearn was named Male Professional of the Year by the Golf Journalists Association of Canada on Dec. 29 (see link below).

The 36-year-old is Canada’s highest-ranked male golfer ending 2015 at No. 117 in the Official World Golf Ranking. He went 18-for-30 in 2014-15 with eight top 25s and finished with career bests in earnings ($1.8 million) and 55th in the FedExCup standings. Hearn led the Canadian Open thru 54 holes after opening in 69, career-tying-low 64 and 68 before an even-par 72 left him solo third. Three weeks prior, he lost in a four-man playoff at The Greenbrier Classic after rounds of 68-64-67-68. This season, he's 4-for-5 thus far with two top 25s, including a T9 at the RSM (64-72-67-69). One concern here is Hearn will make his next start without his trusty anchored broomstick putter as the anchor ban takes effect Jan. 1st.

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.
