Charley Hoffman bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to finish at 12-under 276, good for a four-way tie for seventh place.
Hoffman began the day at 10-under (T11) and five shots back of 54-hole leader David Hearn. On his round, he canceled out five birdies with five bogeys but added an eagle for his sixth top 10 of the season (22 starts) and first since a T2 at the AT&T Byron Nelson at the end of May. The 38-year-old circled birdies at Nos. 1, 3, 11, 16 and 17 with four conversions from inside 11 feet and a long of 13'1" at the par-4 11th. He squared bogeys at Nos. 4, 7, 8, 10 and 14 going 0-for-5 in scrambles on those holes. Hoffman's stats show a meager five (of 14) fairways and just 10 greens in regulation. The highlight of his round was the eagle on the par-5 second, hitting his second from 177 yards to 9'9" and dropping the putt. He finished second on the week in putts per GIR at 1.550 but only hit 40 GIR, 75th in the field in that category. Jul 26 - 7:25 PM

Charley Hoffman makes his way back to Glen Abbey Golf Club for this sixth start at the RBC Canadian Open.

Hoffman arrives on the heels of back-to-back missed cuts, both at major championships. Majors have never really been his thing, posting just one top 25 in 17 tries. Luckily, the field strength is more to his liking this week as many of the elite take a post-Open breather. Hoffman is 2-for-2 at Glen Abbey, and should be considered in all fantasy formats.

Charley Hoffman has finally qualified for The Open Championship.

Hoffman is eighth in the FedExCup standings through the Travelers Championship. The top five and ties, not otherwise exempt, inside the top 20 in FedExCup points tonight earned exemptions into the season's third major. He just missed qualifying when the Official World Golf Ranking was used following the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Robert Streb (12th), Kevin Kisner (14th) and Steven Bowditch (17th) also gained entry into the field of 156 at St. Andrews. All of the other 16 inside the top 20 were already exempt.

Charley Hoffman was removed from the published field of this week's Memorial.

Hoffman has been on a tear for two months. His success is particularly evident in Texas where he finished no worse than T11 (twice) in all four stops. Yesterday's share of second place at TPC Four Seasons was his second T2 of 2014-15. With a win at Mayakoba also in the bank, the 38-year-old is fourth in the FedExCup standings.

Charley Hoffman smoothed a 4-under-par 36-29=65 in today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship to post 14-under, good for the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Hoffman finished in a three-way tie for second with Jimmy Walker and Scott Pinckney, four shots back of winner Steven Bowditch.

Hoffman, currently joint second on the live leaderboard, had a good look at birdie on the 18th, his sixth circle on his inward nine, but it would just slide by. With the leader, Steven Bowditch at 17-under, and playing the 17th, he would have loved to add one more to the card. Regardless, this will be Hoffman's fourth top 10 at the BNC (in nine starts) and will eclipse his previous best of T7 at the 2008 edition. It will also be the 38-year-old's second consecutive top 10 and fifth on the season.
May 31 - 5:39 PM

Charley Hoffman authored a 5-under-par 35-29=64 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship to hit the three-quarter pole 10-under 198.

Hoffman began his round in a seven-way tie for 19th at 5-under and four shots back of the 36-hole lead. He outbalanced two bogeys with seven birdies on his stroll around the TPC Four Seasons Resort. Hoffman, who has made eight consecutive cuts, including T10 at last week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, was T8 here at the BNC in his last visit in 2013. After exchanging two birdies with two bogeys on his outward nine, he would circle five birdies on his trot to the clubhouse, including four of his last five. The 38-year-old, a winner at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in November, is in contention for his fourth PGA TOUR title in 271 career starts.
May 30 - 8:23 PM

Charley Hoffman settled for an even-par 34-36=70 in today's final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and posted 9-under 271, good for a share of 10th place.

Hoffman began the final frame at 9-under (solo third) and was part of the final group of the day with Ian Poulter and 54-hole leader Kevin Na, whom he trailed by two. On the round, he found seven (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation going 1-for-3 in scrambling. The 38-year-old amassed 33 putts on the round finishing -2.003 in strokes gained: putting. He converted on just three of his 15 par breaker chances with the longest conversion rolling in from 12'1" on the 17th. This was Hoffman's fourth top 10 on the season and first since a T9 at the Masters. It was also his first top 10 in seven visits to the CPI.
May 24 - 11:05 PM

Charley Hoffman twirled a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and his 9-under 201 aggregate has him positioned just two strokes off the pace of 54-hole leader Kevin Na.

Hoffman did not have his best ball-striking skills on display today finding seven (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation. Where he exceeded the 50-percent completion rate was in his short game, successfully saving par on eight of nine occasions. Hoffman circled five birdies smothering a lone bogey on the par-4 ninth. His set came in all varieties, including a two-putt birdie on the par-5 first and a chip-in birdie on the par-4 10th. His other three par breakers didn't travel more than 3'7".
May 23 - 4:09 PM

Charley Hoffman answered his opening 66 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's second round.

At 5-under 135, he's three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Hoffman hit 14 greens in regulation today (to total 30 at the break), but converted only twice for birdies. The longer of the tandem ran 20'2" at the par-3 eighth hole. He also saved par from 22'3" at the par-5 11th and 12'3" at the par-4 18th. But he shouldn't be too upset as his only try that didn't drop from inside 10 feet measured 9'6" for birdie at the par-5 first.
May 22 - 1:41 PM

Charley Hoffman shot 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and sits two strokes adrift of the threesome sharing the clubhouse lead.

Hoffman has been on the fringe of the spotlight in recent weeks, but that's more than enough for gamers needing reliable talent to round out rosters. Today's success extends that confidence on a course where he's perfect in six previous visits with a pair of top 20s. He went 5-for-16 in scoring chances with five birdies today. The longest was his first, from 17'3" at the par-3 eighth hole. At last check, Hoffman ranked second in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 4.832.
May 21 - 8:49 PM

Overnight co-leader Charley Hoffman backed up for a 2-over-par 35-39=74 in his second round of THE PLAYERS.

He landed only 10 greens in regulation and circled a pair of birdie-4s, including a roll from just outside 10 feet at No. 11, but he also bogeyed the par-4 12th, and then closed double bogey-bogey at 17 and 18, respectively. His only highlight was a par save from 23'7" at the par-3 third. Hoffman is 3-under 141 and five strokes behind fellow 18-hole co-leader Kevin Na, who sits atop the leaderboard at the midpoint.
May 8 - 6:31 PM

Charley Hoffman registered a 5-under-par 31-36=67 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

Hoffman entered as a sneaky possibility based on his play in Texas and at the Masters, but he's also 6-for-8 here, albeit with no better than a T22 in 2010. So, when he signed his card with a field-high eight birdies (including on all four par 5s), only gamers that haven't been paying attention are surprised. He hit 14 greens in regulation but couldn't avoid a big number on the par-4 first that he played like a 36-handicapper with a one-putt triple bogey from inside four feet and no penalties. Both of his longest conversions measured 11'5" at Nos. 2 and 9, both for birdie. This score ties his personal best in 29 live rounds on TPC Sawgrass.
May 7 - 5:43 PM

It wasn't pretty but Charley Hoffman got by Zach Johnson 2 and 1 in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

The duo completed 17 holes at TPC Harding Park today. Hoffman scored 1-over-par to ZJ's 3-over. Eight of the 11 holes won were done so with pars. Each buried only two birdies. Johnson never tasted the lead and sat 3-down by the fourth hole. He clawed all the way back to even by 12, but Hoffman regained with a par at the par-4 14th and shoved his fellow American against the wall with a birdie-3 at 16. They crawled to a close with par-3s at 17. Hoffman is now 2-0 in the tournament with Branden Grace (1-1) on deck. Johnson (1-1) squares off against Jason Day (0-2) in the third round.
Apr 30 - 9:13 PM

Charley Hoffman backed up to finish the 79th Masters in 2-over-par 38-36=74.

On a leaderboard peppered with major champions and other notables, Hoffman was an unlikely visitor at Augusta National. He played like it today, too. He hit only 10 greens and squared four bogeys against two birdies today before posting 8-under 280. Now the good news. His share of ninth place is his first top 25 in 15 starts in the majors. It also secures a berth into the 2016 Masters for which the top 12 and ties are invited. The others (including former champs who are exempt for life): Jordan Spieth (win); Phil Mickelson (T2); Justin Rose (T2); Rory McIlroy (4th); Hideki Matsuyama (5th); Paul Casey (T6); Dustin Johnson (T6); Ian Poulter (T6); Zach Johnson (T9); Hunter Mahan (T9); Rickie Fowler (T12); Bill Haas (T12); Ryan Moore (T12); Kevin Na (T12); Kevin Streelman (T12).
Apr 12 - 7:02 PM

Charley Hoffman shot 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his third round of the Masters to post 10-under 206, six strokes off Jordan Spieth's overnight lead.

Hoffman played alongside the tournament leader today, but failed to truly capitalize on 13 greens in regulation. He connected for three birdies, including a long-range try at the par-3 11th and a walk-off 3 at the par-4 18th, but bogeys at 15 and 17 spoiled the day. Obviously, the 38-year-old doesn't have the cachet that many around him on the leaderboard carry, but that's probably to his benefit. At the same time, there's a reason why he's usually overlooked by casual fans. Entering the tournament, Hoffman was just 7-for-14 in majors with no better than a T27 in his only other appearance at the Masters (2011).
