Herron putting experience to good use

In this year of the young gun, there’s still something to be said for experience. Making his 13th start in the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Childern Open, 41-year-old Tim Herron is 11 under through two rounds, just one shot off the pace. He’s one of just two 40-somethings among the 11 players at 10 under or better.

Herron attributes his early success at TPC Summerlin to his history at the course. “I know it's a shootout on the weekend, so I'm just hoping to keep rolling the putts,” he said. “Today I made a lot of 15, 20-footers. I know the greens pretty well, so I need to stay aggressive with the putting.” Herron had a streak of three consecutive top-30 finishes at Summerlin snapped last year when he missed the cut after a pair of 71s. After a 65-66 start, his best first two rounds here since 2003, the four-time PGA TOUR winner is positioned to move up from No. 105 on the money list and secure his TOUR card for 2012.
