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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
