Herron attended the University of New Mexico and played on the 1993 United States Walker Cup team before turning professional later that year. 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. His best finish in a major championship is a solo 6th-place finish in the 1999 U.S. Open. In 2000, Herron was as high as 29th in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Herron has played in 560 PGA Tour events through 2019 and won more than $19.6 million during his career, but has not been fully exempt on the PGA Tour since 2012. He currently resides in Wayzata, Minnesota, with his three children Carson, Mick, and Patrick.
Herron has a genetic condition called Dupuytren's contracture, which affected his father and sister. Herron's younger sister Alissa (married name Super) is also an accomplished golfer; she won the 1999 U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur title, won several Minnesota state titles, is a member of the Minnesota Golf Hall of Fame, and has served as her brother's agent.
