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.

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.

David Hearn will compete in The Honda Classic for the third time.

While the Canuck has been trending on the PGA TOUR for much of the last few years, it hasn't carried over to PGA National. He missed the cut here in both 2012 and 2013, breaking par only once in four rounds. Hearn has made just two of five cuts in 2014, with none cracking the top 30. Expectations should be held in check.
Feb 25 - 9:50 PM

David Hearn makes his sixth start of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season at the Humana Challenge.

While he's logging plenty of rounds, missing just one cut, he hasn't finished any better than T21 this season. He enters this week off a T38 in the Sony Open, so there's reason to believe his form is solid enough to contend if the putts drop. There's just one problem. He's missed both of his cuts in this event.
Jan 15 - 9:08 PM

David Hearn wasted no time in getting to work on his 2013-14 PGA TOUR campaign, teeing it up in four of the Fall Series events.

The Canadian made three of his four cuts to start the 2013-14 TOUR season, with a T21 at the Open the highlight. He also enjoyed a tie for eighth in the World Cup of Golf, finishing nine strokes behind Jason Day. After nearly winning the John Deere Classic in a playoff in the summer of 2013, expectations for Hearn are heightened in 2013-14.

David Hearn turns his attention to the BMW Championship ranked 62nd in the FedExCup standings.

Since his playoff loss at the John Deere Classic to Jordan Spieth, Hearn has made each of his subsequent four cuts with a T35 at the Deutsche Bank Classic last week the highlight. While he's guaranteed to cash another check this week, he'll need something a whole lot better than a T35 if he is to advance to his first TOUR Championship at East Lake.

David Hearn posted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the PGA Championship to assume outright possession of the early clubhouse lead.

He was one of the last to gain entry into the field at Oak Hill when Brendan Jones withdrew a week ago. Hearn bracketed six birdies with bogey-5s at the first and 18th holes in what was his first career round in this tournament. The set of par breakers included a pair on par 3s and one at a par 5.

David Hearn has been given a tee time at next week's PGA Championship.

Hearn was the first alternate when the field was published. He gained entry when Brendan Jones. The Canadian is scheduled to go off the first tee at 7:40 a.m. ET at Oak Hill Country Club's East Course. It will be his first start in this major. Australia's Matt Jones is now first alternate.

David Hearn closed out his second-round, 1-over-par 36-37=73 with birdies on his last three holes to make the cut on the number at the RBC Canadian Open.

Hearn lost in the playoff at the John Deere Classic two weeks ago, so he's been in form, but it's impossible to understand the kind of pressure the small contingent of Canucks feel at this tournament. After Thursday's 70, he hit only 10 greens in regulation today en route to six bogeys. He grinded out five birdies overall, including a run from 12'3" at the fourth hole. However, that wasn't as impressive as conversions from 20'9" and 47 feet to end his round, especially with the opportunity to play the weekend in the balance.

After turning in a steady, 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the John Deere Classic, David Hearn went on to lose in a five-hole playoff to Jordan Spieth.

The Canadian jumped out to a nice start with a birdie on the first hole but gave it back with a bogey on the third. It was all pars until an 11'3" birdie bid found the bottom of the cup on the par-4 13th. Still chasing and needing another birdie, he rattled home a 25'6" putt on the par-3 16th, then managed a critical par from 5'3" to join the playoff with Spieth and Zach Johnson; all finishing at 19-under 265. With pars to survive the first four holes, Hearn failed to get up and down for par on the par-4 18th where the tournament ended. His consolation prize is that the P2 is his best finish in 108 PGA TOUR starts.

David Hearn spun a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the John Deere Classic and trails Daniel Summerhays by two strokes at 17-under 196.

Hearn circled eight birdies and squared just one bogey on his lap around TPC Deere Run, gaining over two-and-a-half strokes on the field with the flat stick despite hitting just 13 GIR. In fact, he currently ranks inside the top five in both strokes gained-putting and putting average. His career-best finish on the PGA TOUR was a T5 at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in 2011, so he stand an excellent chance of bettering that in Sunday's finale. He'll stare Summerhays down in the final pairing as both chase their first victory.
