HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- Tim Herron ran out of holes on Sunday, but the veteran completed his best performance of the season.
Herron shot a final-round 67 to finish at 10-under 274. That put him two shots behind Brandt Snedeker, the leader in the clubhouse. His key was accuracy; Herron hit 15 of 18 greens in regulation and made five birdies. His only slip came on the 18 th, where he failed to get up and down from the front of the green.
Herron had made only two cuts in eight previous starts. His best finishes have been a pair of ties for 29 th, at the Farmers Insurance Open and at the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun.
Herron will definitely finish in the top 10, which he hasn’t accomplished on the TOUR since 2008. It will be his best career finish at The Heritage.
