Timothy Daniel Herron (born February 6, 1970) is an American professional golfer.

Biography[edit]

Herron was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota.[1] His father and grandfather, both named Carson Herron, were professional golfers who played the U.S. Open.[2]

Herron attended the University of New Mexico[1] and played on the 1993 United States Walker Cup team before turning professional later that year.[1] He played on the Nationwide Tour in 1995, and the following season he won for the first time on the PGA Tour at the Honda Classic. He won three times in his first four seasons at the top level. Herron continued to play consistently after that, but there was a seven-year gap before he claimed his fourth PGA Tour title at the 2006 Bank of America Colonial.[2] His best finish in a major championship is a solo 6th place finish in the 1999 U.S. Open.[3] In 2006, he featured in the top fifty of the Official World Golf Rankings.[2]

Herron has played in 494 PGA Tour events through 2013 and won more than $18.5 million during his career.[1] He currently resides in Wayzata, Minnesota.
