J.J. Henry, whose best finish this year is a tie for ninth, opened with a 5-under 67 Thursday.

Very quietly, J.J. Henry has put together a pretty respectable year with a half-dozen top-25s, which includes one finish in the top 10, in 10 starts this year. He also hasn’t missed a cut.

Thursday, he took a big step toward improving on that with a bogey-free 5-under 67 at TPC San Antonio.

That Henry is in contention shouldn’t be that much of a surprise really. The Fort Worth resident is 21st on the PGA TOUR in total driving -- distance plus accuracy -- and also ranks 13th in greens in regulation and 19th in adjusted scoring average.

Henry kept that trend going, for the most part, in the opening round, hitting 14 of 18 greens in regulation (though he only hit seven of 14 fairways). He also took just 27 putts and was perfect from inside 10 feet, going 17-for-17.
