Henry ties for 3rd at Byron Nelson.

It's been six years since Fairfield's J.J. Henry has won on the PGA Tour at the 2006 Buick Championship in Cromwell.
He's going to have to wait a little longer for win No. 2.

Henry held the lead on the 17th tee of the final round of the Byron Nelson Classic, a round that included an ace on the par-3 fifth hole. But he hit a 7-iron over the green on the par-3 17th, leading to a three-putt, double-bogey that cost him the tournament, won by Jason Dufner, his second win of the season that vaulted him into the top spot in the tour's FedExCup standings.

Henry now lives in Fort Worth, Texas, just a 45-minute drive from the Nelson, which is just outside of Dallas. His road trip will be much shorter this week since the Colonial is located in Fort Worth.

Henry's only other top-10 finish on tour came at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in late February. He missed five straight cuts to start the season. He had one top-10 last year and two in 2010.

Although no official announcement has been made yet, expect Henry to return to his native land for the Travelers Championship in June.
