Heintz turned professional in 1992 and joined the Nike Tour (now Nationwide Tour) in 1994, then took a hiatus and did not return to the Tour until 1999 where he won two events, the Nike Shreveport Open and the Nike Tour Championship, en route to finishing 6th on the money list and earning his PGA Tour card for 2000. After a poor rookie year on Tour, he returned to the Nationwide Tour in 2001 but got back to the PGA Tour in 2002 through qualifying school. He did not earn his PGA Tour card for 2003 and returned to the Nationwide Tour that year where he played for two years before getting back his PGA Tour card in qualifying school for 2005. Again he was not able to retain his card and returned to the Nationwide Tour in 2006. He went through qualifying school for the third time and returned to the PGA Tour in 2007 where he had his best year on tour, recording two fifth-place finishes and finishing 136th on the money list, earning him partial status on tour for 2008. He split time between the PGA and Nationwide Tour in 2008 and earned his PGA Tour card for 2009 through qualifying school for the fourth time. He returned to the Nationwide Tour in 2010 and has been playing on it since.
Heintz had a very close call at the 2010 Reno-Tahoe Open where he missed a 3.5 foot (1.1 m) putt on the final hole to get into a playoff with Matt Bettencourt for an opportunity for his first PGA Tour victory.
Since 2012, Heintz has served as the University of Pennsylvania's men's head golf coach.
