David Hearn eyes a big 2020 season coming off an exciting year, both on and off the course. He collected one top-10 and nine made cuts in 18 starts to finish No. 174 in the FedExCup standings, but secured PGA TOUR membership for the 2019-20 season by finishing No. 13 in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals 25.

His 2015-2016 campaign was full of strong consistent performances with fourteen top 30’s including two top 10’s. It was highlighted by a July trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the XXXI Olympiad. It was the first time golf had been included in the Summer Olympics since 1904. Hearn attempted to defend Canada’s title 112 years in the making, resulting in a T30 finish.
In 2014-2015, Hearn collected eight Top 25 finishes, including four Top 10 results and narrowly being the first Canadian in over 60 years to win Canada’s national tournament – the RBC Canadian Open.

Rookie of the Year on PGA Tour Canada in 2002, Brantford’s David Hearn has had a long and successful career spanning several professional tours. After playing in Canada and Asia early in his career, Hearn broke through in 2004, winning on both PGA Tour Canada and the Web.com Tour (then the Canadian Tour and Nationwide Tour respectively).
Resilience and perseverance paid off as he made it through PGA Tour Qualifying School on his fourth try, playing on the PGA Tour in 2005. In 2006, Hearn returned to the Web.com Tour where he played until finishing No. 21 on the tour’s money list in 2010. His efforts and hard work were rewarded with a return to the PGA Tour in 2011, where he’s had five solid seasons, and has become known for a sharp short game and consistent play.
