Charley Hoffman opened his title defense of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with an even-par 33-38=71 and sits six strokes off the pace of the clubhouse quad-leaders.
He opened relatively well with birdies on three of his first seven holes to offset a bogey at the par-4 14th hole, but Hoffman played out the string in birdie-free 2-over with two more bogeys. For the round, he found eight (of 14) fairways but only nine greens in regulation. The 38-year-old opened his season with a missed cut at home in Vegas, so it's fair to begin wondering if last season's career effort either took a toll or he's a bit lost about to what to do next. Granted, a trio of even-par 71s to start the season is hardly reason to think the sky is falling, but his investors have no reason why they shouldn't be getting antsy. Nov 12 - 3:57 PM

Charley Hoffman hoisted the trophy during the 2014-15 running of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and returns this week for a shot to defend that title.

The three-time PGA TOUR winner looks for his first successful title defense at El Camaleón Golf Club this week. Hoffman doesn't carry the weight of a superstar, but does own an impressive top 25 ratio over 30 percent during his PGA TOUR starts as a professional. Gamers should have a hard look at Hoffman this week, but keep expectations to a realistic level. Defending a tournament trophy is hard.

After a four-year hiatus from the tournament, Charley Hoffman returns to East Lake ranked eighth on the FedExCup standings.

Hoffman checks in at No. 34 in the Official World Golf Ranking, just off his career high of 31st after solo third three weeks ago at the Deutsche Bank, where he lead after 36 holes. It was his fourth top-three finish of the season (27 starts) after claiming his third TOUR title at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in November and a pair of T2s at the Humana Challenge and the AT&T Byron Nelson. The 38-year-old book-ended the DBC with T62 at The Barclays and T53 last week at the BMW. His only other action in the Playoffs finale was solo sixth in 2010 on rounds of 71-67-69-70.
Sep 22 - 9:57 AM

Charley Hoffman rebounded with a final-round 4-under-par 32-35=67 at the Deutsche Bank Championship to put 11-under 273 on the board, good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead.

After opening in 67-63 to lead outright after 36 holes, the 2010 champ played himself out of contention in the third round, shooting 13 shots worse than his effort in round two. As true champs do however, he then went nine shots better today responding nicely by overshadowing two bogeys at Nos. 11 and 16, with six circles, including a birdie-birdie finish. Despite yesterday's debacle, Hoffman began the finale at 7-under (T11) and six adrift. With the vast majority of those in front him struggling, the 38-year-old showed his resolve and jumped eight spots on the leaderboard to currently sit solo third. All six of his conversions on just nine greens in regulation came from inside 10 feet. He entered the week 17th in the FedExCup standings and projects sixth with play still in progress.

Overnight leader and past champ Charley Hoffman ballooned to a 5-over-par 41-35=76 in today's third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship turning a three-shot lead into a six-shot deficit at 7-under 206.

Hoffman has co-lead at the midpoint twice prior on the PGA TOUR, first at the 2011 Valero Texas Open (eventually finishing T2) and then at the 2013 RBC Heritage (finished T6). This, however, was Hoffman's first outright 36-hole lead and it didn't end well. It started off great at the par-4 opener with fairway, green, and a 19-footer for birdie. Hoffman then rinsed his approach on the par-5 second (from the fairway) and squared bogey, followed by a missed 6'3" par putt at the third. After just three holes, his three-shot lead to begin the day was gone. The carnage was not nearly over, as Hoffman swallowed dropped shots at the fifth, and then three straight on Nos. 7-9 to turn 5-over. To his credit, the 38-year-old and 2010 champ played his final nine holes in even, exchanging two birdies with two bogeys. In his nine previous starts at TPC Boston, Hoffman’s third round scoring average was 68.33. After squaring just two bogeys thru 36 holes, he quadrupled that amount today.
Sep 6 - 6:55 PM

Past champ Charley Hoffman scorched TPC Boston with an 8-under-par 33-30=63 in today's second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to put 12-under 130 on the board, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play winding down for the day, Hoffman leads by three over first-round leader Brendon de Jonge.

Hoffman concluded yesterday's loop playing his final four holes (Nos. 15-18) in 4-under (birdie-birdie-par-eagle) for an inward 4-under 31. Beginning today's round at No. 10 tee, he navigated his first half in bogey-free 5-under 30, culminating with three consecutive birdies on 16, 17 and 18, each from between nine and 13 feet. After the break, the 38-year-old offset his lone bogey at the par-3 eighth with four circles at Nos. 2, 4, 5 and a walk-off 3 (from 11'2") at the ninth. In his 2010 DBC win, Hoffman was T2 after 36 holes (11-under) and T4 after 54, eventually erasing a four-shot deficit with a final-round 62 to win by five. It was his second of what is now three career PGA TOUR titles in 273 career starts as a pro.
Sep 5 - 2:10 PM

Charley Hoffman toured TPC Boston in 4-under-par 36-31=67 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship before coming to rest two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The 2010 champ has made nine appearances in this tournament, yet has just the one top 25. He opened and closed his title with a 64 and 62, respectively, but today's wind wasn't going to relent anything lower than Brendon de Jonge's 65. Hoffman went 5-for-6 in scrambling with a bogey-4 at the third hole, but he played his last 10 holes in bogey-free 5-under with three birdies and an eagle to cap the round at the par-5 18th hole. He went 18-for-18 from inside 12 feet, but his longest conversion measured just 8'8" for his first birdie at the par-4 ninth. He's 17th in the FedExCup standings.
Sep 4 - 6:45 PM

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.

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.
Jul 21 - 10:07 AM

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.
Jun 28 - 7:33 PM

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.
Jun 1 - 11:39 AM

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".
