Heath Slocum

Father is a golf professional. Played on the same high school golf team at Milton (Fla.) High School as Tour professional Boo Weekley. Bubba Watson attended the same school a couple of years later. A three-time All-American selection at South Alabama captured the Sun Belt Conference title. Turned pro in 1996 and made it to the finals of PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament. With that was able to play on the Korn Ferry tour in 1997, playing in 19 events making five cuts, best finish T-21st at the Boise Open. Contracted ulcerative colitis in November of 1997 and dropped from 150 to 122 pounds. Because of the illness, missed the next year and a half of golf.
His first tournament back was the 2000 Mississippi Golf on the Korn Ferry Tour; he missed the cut. At the end of the year, I got back to the final stages of Q-School, finishing T-56th which got him a Korry Ferry Tour card for 2001.
2001 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments entered - 18; in money - 11; Top-10 finishes -6; scoring average 70.12 (ranked 10th); money $339,670 (ranked 3rd); winner Greater Cleveland Open, Knoxville Open, and Omaha Classic. With his three victories on the Nationwide Tour, he earned a promotion to the PGA Tour, becoming the second person to do so since Chris Smith did it in 1997.
Slocum joined the PGA Tour in 2001, and has four wins in his career. His first win was in 2004 at the Chrysler Classic of Tucson. His second win came at the Southern Farm Bureau Classic in 2005. His best finish in a major is a T-9th at the 2008 U.S. Open and he has featured in the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking.
Slocum represented the United States at the 2007 World Cup, partnered with Boo Weekley. The Americans finished second after losing a sudden-death playoff to Scotland.
Slocum barely qualified for the 2009 FedEx Cup Playoffs; he finished 124th on the regular season points list, just ahead of Troy Matteson, the 125th and final entrant. At the first playoff event, The Barclays at Liberty National Golf Club in New Jersey, he won the event by one shot, holing a 21-foot putt for par on the last hole to deny Ernie Els, Pádraig Harrington, Steve Stricker, and Tiger Woods the chance of victory. Slocum's win, his third on the Tour, vaulted him 121 spots on the FedEx Cup points list, to 3rd; it also earned him $1,350,000, more than double his prior winnings in 2009 He ended up placing 8th in the FedEx Cup standings that year.
In 2010, Slocum enjoyed a solid year. During the main portion of the season, he recorded four top-ten finishes, including a T-4th at The Players Championship. He ended up 46th in the FedEx Cup. Then he capped off his year in style during the Fall Series, winning the inaugural McGladrey Classic. Slocum held off Bill Haas by one shot to earn the fourth title of his PGA Tour career.
Slocum did not record any top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour in 2011. However, he finished T-12th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, T-11th at the U.S. Open, T-15th at the McGladrey Classic and T-20th at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, so he retained his card. In 2012 he had only three top-25 finishes and lost his PGA Tour card. Slocum returned to the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament but came up just short of reclaiming a Tour card.
In 2013, Slocum split time between the Korn Ferry Tour and PGA Tour, performing poorly on both. He barely qualified for the 2013 Korn Ferry Tour Finals, where he finished 8th at the Chiquita Classic and 17th at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship and Korn Ferry Tour Championship, regaining a PGA Tour card for 2014. That season, he had a best result of 4th at the Wyndham Championship but only collected three top-25s, forcing him to return to the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Once again, though, Slocum saved his PGA Tour card, thanks to a T-4th at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship.Slocum last played a full PGA Tour schedule in 2015, making six cuts in 22 events.
Between 2016 and 2022, Slocum participated in a total of 22 PGA Tour events, making the cut just three times. In 2022 and 2023, Slocum was also active on the Korn Ferry Tour, playing 15 total events, but missed the cut in every tournament.
In his career he played in 74 Korn Ferry Tour events making 28 cuts with eight top ten finishes. Had the three times in 2001, he earned $475,502.
On the PGA Tour played in 408 events makinng 140 cuts with 35 top ten finishes. He won four times and waa runner-up three times.
2024 Notes: Slocum played his first PGA Tour Champions event finishing T-41st at the Chubb Classic. Was T-11th at the Hoag Classic.
