Playing Spyglass Hill GC, World No. 23 Charley Hoffman withdrew during the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. UPDATE: Hoffman returned to action Feb. 15th at the Genesis Open and appears to be headed to a made cut on the number, currently T65 on 2-over 75-69=144.
The 41-year-old was 1-over par thru 10 holes, 2-under total when he called it a day. This is just a second mid-tourney WD in 342 career events, first since the 2012 John Deere Classic. The San Diego native is in the published field at this coming week's Genesis Open in Pacific Palisades. As of press time, no reason has been gleaned for his WD this week, but we'll update this post if more information becomes available. UPDATE: Hoffman's WD was due to back issues. Feb 10 - 5:11 PM

Second- and third-round leader and World No. 27 Charley Hoffman sleepwalked to an even-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the Hero World Challenge, dropping one place to solo 2nd on 14-under 274, four shy of champion Rickie Fowler, who shot a course- and tournament-record 61.

After kicking off in 69-63-70, the UNLV alum began with a five-shot lead over two players, including playing competitor Justin Rose, seven clear of Fowler. He kicked off with an opening birdie-3, bookended a birdie-4 at nine, but cancelled them with back-to-back bogeys at four and five. The 40-year-old, who was making his tourney debut, limped home with nine straight pars. He arrived off a MC at the OHL Classic three weeks ago, preceded by a T18 at the Shriners.

Overnight leader Charley Hoffman breezed through Albany in The Bahamas with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 during round three of the Hero World Challenge, good for the low round of the day to reach 14-under 202, entering the final round with a commanding five-shot lead.

Hoffman ended round two with eight straight holes without a par (seven birdies and one bogey). He started today's round with more of the same, opening with BOGEY-BIRDIE-BIRDIE. That included a 20-footer that he rolled in for birdie at the par-3 second hole. He calmed down from there to take what the course had to offer him today. The rest of his round included three more birdies, a bogey and one double bogey. By day's end, Hoffman had recorded the low round of the day and was one of just four golfers to sign a scorecard in red numbers. Over his career, he is 0-for-4 in converting 54-hole leads/co-leads. Two of those were solo leads, but he led by one and two shots in those events, not five shots like he will now sleep on.

Charley Hoffman flirted with the course record during round two of the Hero World Challenge, styling a 9-under-par 31-32=63 to grab sole possession of the clubhouse lead on 12-under 132 as play starts to wind down in the Bahamas.

Hoffman started the day in a share of eighth place but wasn't content with pars today. On the front nine alone he traded six birdies with just one bogey. Surely, he'd slow his pace from there, right? Nope. He raced into the clubhouse with six more birdies (and one more bogey) on his inward nine. There were plenty of highlights today, but we knew he was in the zone when he holed out from the greenside bunker at the par-3 17th. It was his fourth birdie in a row and he'd add one more onto the train to finish the round. After the round, Hoffman said he is hopeful that Tiger Woods can maintain his pace and keep his name in the mix come Sunday. Hoffman fell one shy of tying the course record (62, Justin Rose in 2016) but I don't think he'll complain about a 9-under 63 that has him positioned at the top of the leaderboard heading into the weekend.

World No. 27 Charley Hoffman readies for his Hero World Challenge debut and is paired with Kevin Chappell in Round 1 on Thursday (11:21 am ET).

The 40-year-old is one of eight first-timers in the 18-man field. Thirteen of those won a title (somewhere) in 2017, while he's one of three whose last win came in 2016. Overall, the San Diego native has won four times in 339 career events, most recently at the 2016 Valero Texas Open 46 starts ago, where he came from three back with 3-under 69 to win by one (Patrick Reed). The UNLV alum finished 20th in the FedExCup standings last season with a career-high 14 top 25s among 24 cashes in 31 starts. He recorded seven top 10s, highlighted by a pair of runner-up finishes at Bay Hill and a playoff loss at the RBC Canadian Open nine starts ago. Hoffman finished with T28 (of 30) at the TOUR Championship and has opened this season with a T20 (Shriners) and a MC three weeks ago in Mexico.

Round two of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open has been suspended due to darkness. The play was halted at 5:48 p.m. PT, shortly after Charley Hoffman submitted his even-par 36-35=71, positioning himself just inside the top 15 on 3-under 139. The 28 golfers stranded are set to resume at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday morning.

The UNLV product is getting a lot of attention (and well-deserved) for his pledge of donating all of his winnings this week to the victims of the recent Las Vegas tragedy. The Las Vegas resident arrived with three straight missed cuts at this event, but it appears his pledge to donate has motivated him to succeed here. Or perhaps it's his conservative approach that he cited after round one. In the past he's gotten in trouble trying to pull driver on too many holes, so he altered his strategy this year. That is certainly working out so far as he ranks 2nd in the field in the strokes gained off-the-tee department.

Charley Hoffman sits at 13th in the FedExCup standings ahead of the season finale at this week's TOUR Championship.

Hoffman missed the cut in his first three starts of the season. He didn't let that ruin his season as he rebounded to post a 23-for-27 record since. He is now in line to have one of the better seasons of his career, especially in money earned. Hoffman has four wins on his TOUR resume, including one in each of the past two seasons. If he wants to keep that trend alive, this week is the last chance to do so. Ranked 13th in strokes gained off-the-tee and 44th in strokes gained approach, it certainly won't be the long game that lets him down.

World No. 23 Charley Hoffman crafted a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the BMW Championship for a three-day total of 11-under 202, up seven places to T5 with play still in progress.

The 40-year-old found 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.057 strokes off-the-tee and 4.457 approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 7.200. He kicked off with a hole-out eagle-2 at No. 4 (from 185 yards away), gave two back with bogeys at 6 and 7 (3-putt from 37'7"), and added four circles at 10, 14, 17 and 18, all from inside of 11 feet. The UNLV alum, projecting at 11th in the FedExCup standings, registered 1.733 putts per GIR and -3.533 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.

Charley Hoffman steadied a 7-under-par 31-33=64 during round one of the BMW Championship, claming his piece of second place alongside Jason Day on the early leaderboard.

Hoffman coasted out of the gate, setting up seven scoring chances inside 15 feet over his opening eight holes. He didn't slow down much from there, giving himself six more scoring chances inside 17 feet on the homeward nine. He converted on three of those back-nine birdies in addition to a 26'1" hole out for birdie at the 17th. Hoffman entered the week ranked 12th in the FedExCup race and just received a captain's pick to join the United States squad for the Presidents Cup. Hoffman is easily posting one of the best seasons of his career, just $83,519 away from posting a career-high in season earnings.

Past champion Charley Hoffman heads back to TPC Boston for a 12th appearance at this week's Dell Technologies Championship, also vying for the final spot on the Presidents Cup squad.

Hoffman hoisted the hardware at TPC Boston back in 2010. He also picked up a solo third in 2015, so the layout certainly fits his eye. He also arrives with top 20s in six of his last eight starts, so the game is trending nicely. That has Hoffman positioned ninth in the FedExCup race but also 10th in the Presidents Cup standings (United States side). With this being the last week to qualify (10 automatic qualifiers plus 2 captain's picks to be announced), a good week for Hoffman could lock up his spot on the team while also bolstering his FedExCup positioning.

World No. 23 Charley Hoffman styled a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to wrap on 3-under 277, up 37 spots on the live leaderboard to T15 and matching Webb Simpson for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Hoffman finished T17 and his 65 was tied for the low round of the day with two others.

The 40-year-old has teed it up in all 11 editions (in the FedExCup era) and posts a third top 25, second straight. It was his 33rd overall Playoffs appearance with one win, the 2010 Deutsche Bank at TPC Boston. After opening in 72-70-70, the San Diego native began T52 on 2-over, six short of the overnight top 10. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.884 SG: Approach-the-Green and 3.105 SG: Tee-to-Green. The UNLV alum, projecting at 9th in the FedExCup standings, squared a lone bogey-5 at 11, offset by six birdies at Nos. 3, 6, 7, 10, 12 and 14, two from between 17 and 22 feet. He recorded 1.538 putts per GIR and 3.921 SG: Putting, taking just 25 total putts.

World No. 31 Charley Hoffman crafted a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to reach 10-under 270, up two places to solo 3rd, six adrift of champion Hideki Matsuyama, who shot 61. UPDATE: Hoffman jumps 11 spots to a career-high 20th in OWGR.

This was the 40-year-old's fifth Bridgestone and first top 10, brushing aside a previous-best T22 on debut in 2007. Overall, it was his 13th WGC event and first top 10, previously T13 at the 2009 CA Championship (Doral). It's the UNLV alum's 13th top 25 of the season in 26 starts, seventh top 10, and sixth top 5, second straight after P2 last week in Canada as 54-hole leader. It's also his 16th career top-3 finish in 332 career events (327 pro). After kicking off in 68-69-67, the San Diego native began T5, three shy of 54-hole co-leaders Zach Johnson and Thomas Pieters. He conjured three (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.212 SG: Approach-the-Green. Hoffman squared Nos. 12 and 14, camouflaged by circles at 2, 4, 6 (hole-out from 78'11"), 7, 11 and 13, recording 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.444 SG: Putting.

World No. 31 Charley Hoffman signed for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 after the third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational for a three-day tally of 6-under 204, up one spot to T5, three back of 54-hole co-leaders Zach Johnson and Thomas Pieters.

The 40-year-old hit six (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.939 strokes off-the-tee and 3.392 tee-to-green. He squared three bogeys at 12, 15 and 18 (3-putt from 74'11"), overshadowed by five conventional birdies at Nos. 2, 6, 10, 13 and 16, two from between 13 and 26 feet, adding a 27-footer from the fringe at the par-4 14th. The UNLV alum posted 1.769 putts per GIR and 0.102 SG: Putting, dragged down by four missed scoring tries from inside of 10 feet.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 31 Charley Hoffman crafted a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the weather-delayed second round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to reach halftime on 3-under 137, up four spots to T5 with play still in progress.

This is the 40-year-old's fifth Bridgestone with a best of T22 on debut in 2007. Overall, it's his 13th WGC event and still looking for his first top 10. His best is T13 at the 2009 CA Championship (Doral). The UNLV alum, who arrived off a playoff loss last week in Canada (as 54-hole leader), opened with a six-birdie four-bogey 68. On Day 2, he mustered four (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.862 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 0.605 around-the-green. The San Diego native circled three at Nos. 13, 2 and 6, all from inside of nine feet, squaring the 14th and 7th, both on failed scrambles. He recorded 1.769 putts per GIR and 1.608 SG: Putting, currently No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 4.930.

Overnight leader and World No. 38 Charley Hoffman authored a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to match defending champ Jhonattan Vegas on 21-under 267, and then lost to Vegas' birdie on the first hole of sudden death, the par-5 18th. UPDATE: Hoffman bumps seven spots to a career-tying-high 31st in OWGR.

After opening in 68-66-65, the 40-year-old led by one over playing competitor Kevin Chappell (71), three clear of Vegas, who shot 65. It was his fourth career 54-hole lead/co-lead in 331 career starts and drops to 0-for-4. On nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, the UNLV alum squared two bogey-4s at Nos. 7 and 12, outpaced by six birdies at 1, 2, 6, 11, 16 and 18, three from between 11 and 19 feet, adding a pitch-in 3 at 6 from 26'9" away. He missed birdie from 10'6" at the 17th and nearly won in regulation with a 22-footer for eagle that skirted the cup at the last. In extra time, both players missed the fairway, but Hoffman was forced to layup, eventually having to hole-out from a greenside bunker to extend, while Vegas chipped from 30'10" away for a tap-in 4. Chasing his fifth TOUR title, he settles for a seventh runner-up, second this season in 25 starts (T2, API).
