Charley Hoffman heads into the Valero Texas Open this weekend with three consecutive cuts made, including a 12th-place showing at the Masters.
Hoffman has been extremely consistent at some very tough courses, posting a 6-under in each of his past three events, and exactly 6-under in four of his past five showings. Consistency has been key so far, as he doesn't do anything particularly great on the golf course, but he also doesn't have any tremendous holes in his game, either. If there is a place he could stand some improvement it is in his Driving Accuracy Percentage (181st on TOUR) and on the putting green. But he seems to make up for it with his even-keel demeanor and heady play. Despite the inaccuracy from the tee box, so-so distance and his subpar putting, he still chimes in 40th in Scoring Average (70.47). If he can just improve ever so slightly in those other areas, top-20 finishes will be the norm. Apr 18 - 6:35 PM

Charley Hoffman took his foot off the gas in round two of the Masters Tournament, settling for a 1-over-par 34-39=73, still maintaining a spot inside the top 10 on 2-under 142.

Hoffman looked solid to start the day, continuing his assault on the par 5s with circles at No. 2 and 8. His basic stats looked similar round-over-round but a water ball at the par-3 12th spoiled the fun. He did not convert on the final two par 5s to add insult to injury. A 1-over 73 doesn't seem that good but when you consider the field averaged 74.56 today, a 73 isn't so bad. Hoffman was the co-leader here at the midpoint last year but he'll have to settle for a share of eighth place this time around. Hoffman clearly has a love for this layout, making him a strong option for DFS Weekend gamers.

Charley Hoffman torched 17 holes of Augusta National Golf Club and then made an 18th hole error, but still posted 3-under-par 35-34=69 in round one of the 82nd Masters, good for T2 on the live leaderboard. UPDATE: At day's end, Hoffman finds himself three off the torrid pace set by Jordan Spieth.

On debut in 2011 Hoffman shot an opening 74 for T64, but since then? 67 for T2 in 2015, 71 for T13 in 2016, 65 for solo first in 2017 and now a 69 in testing scoring conditions. It should have been a 68, but first he couldn't find the final green in two, and then missed a 9'0" par saving attempt. Before then it had largely been plain sailing: two par-5 birdies on the front nine (2 and 8) with a bogey at the ninth. The highlight was a hat trick of birdies at 12, 13 and 14. On 12 and 13 from 7'0", on 14 from 35'0". He ticked 9 of 14 fairways, 12 of 18 greens in regulation and needed 1.56 putts per hole. His past record post-Thursday at ANGC is interesting. On his first two visits he went sub-60 on Friday, but the last two carded 77 and 75. More tellingly, perhaps, he is yet to break 71 at the weekend.

World No. 26 Charley Hoffman patched together a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, dipping one spot to T6 on 8-under 208, two back of clubhouse leader Rory McIlroy and four back of the leader on the course Henrik Stenson, who's playing the 18th.

The 41-year-old mustered six (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.735 strokes off-the-tee and 1.342 around-the-green. He carded five birdies at holes 3, 5, 8, 12 and 16, taking some luster off with two squares at 2 and 6 (water/penalty), and double bogey-6 at 10 (3-putt from 30'3"). The UNLV alum's split included five conversions from between 12 and 22 feet, registering 1.583 putts per GIR and 2.276 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.
Mar 17 - 5:59 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 26 Charley Hoffman tossed up a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 7-under 137, up 27 places on the leaderboard to solo 5th, four back of co-leaders Henrik Stenson and Bryson DeChambeau, and matching the latter with the low round of the day.

This is the UNLV alum's sixth API and third cash with one prior top-50 finish. Of course, that was a T2 last year, which tied his season best in 31 starts. Hoffman was the 36-hole leader (68-66) and co-led after 54 holes (71), before finishing one back of champion Marc Leishman with a closing 73. The 41-year-old kicked off with an up-and-down 71 and hit nine (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation on Day 2. He gained 2.992 strokes approaching-the-green, 4.981 tee-to-green, and 6.081 SG: Total. The California native carded six birdies at 13, 16-18, 3 and 6, posting 1.688 putts per GIR and 1.100 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

World No. 24 Charley Hoffman authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the WGC-Mexico Championship for a two-day total of 6-under 136, up 11 spots on the live leaderboard to T12, five adrift of 36-hole clubhouse leader Shubhankar Sharma.

This is the 41-year-old's sixth appearance but first in Mexico City. Overall, it's his 14th WGC event with one prior top 10, a 3rd at the 2017 Bridgestone. The California native opened with 70, outpacing one bogey and triple bogey-6 with five circles, and carded five birdies again on Day 2. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.762 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.295 around-the-green. The UNLV alum circled 1, 4, 9, 11 and 12, registering 1.692 putts per GIR and -0.115 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.
Mar 2 - 6:03 PM

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.

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.
