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.

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).
Apr 11 - 7:50 PM

Charley Hoffman chased his opening 67 at the Masters with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 to post 9-under 135 at the midpoint, five swings adrift of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth.

Only a bogey at the par-4 18th hole stood between Hoffman and a spotless scorecard. Prior to it, he buried five birdies, including mid-to-long-range benders at the par-5 second and par-4 14th holes. He totaled 14 greens in regulation. Hoffman is bogey-free 5-under on the par 5s for the week. If it holds, his deficit will match the all-time gap between first and second place at the conclusion of 36 holes. Herman Keiser (1946), Jack Nicklaus (1975) and Raymond Floyd (1976) share the record.
Apr 10 - 3:56 PM

Charley Hoffman raced out to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the 79th Masters to set the very early clubhouse lead.

And we're off. Hoffman went out with Brian Harman in the first grouping of the day. Most are threesomes, but there are two twosomes in the field of 97. Hoffman hit 13 greens in regulation and converted an eagle (at the par-5 15th hole) and five birdies to cover two bogeys. He walked off with a birdie at the par-4 18th. This is just his second start at Augusta National (T27, 2011), but the Californian rolled in with some momentum following T11s in both starts in Texas.
Apr 9 - 11:52 AM

Charley Hoffman battled for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open and is on the bubble for a top 10 at even-par 288.

This was a bit of a disappointment considering he was the leader after 18 holes. The real damage was done with a third-round 79. His final lap around TPC San Antonio featured four birdies and two bogeys, spread evenly across each nine. Two of those birdies fell form outside of 25 feet, and both of those were on par 3s. He entered the week with an impressive resume on this course and did nothing to suggest that he isn't still a horse for this course moving forward.
Mar 29 - 4:02 PM

Overnight leader Charley Hoffman settled for an even-par 33-39=72 in today's second round of the Valero Texas Open.

This might sting a bit given the scorable conditions at TPC San Antonio today. He went out in 3-under with four birdies, including conversions from 31'10" and 10'10" at the par-3 13th and par-5 18th holes, but Hoffman played his inward side in birdie-free 3-over with three bogeys. When he signed his card at 5-under 139 and just one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, he probably reminded himself that it's a marathon and not a sprint. Still, the latter half of today's effort played out more like his form of late rather than his repeated success on this track.
Mar 27 - 2:40 PM

Charley Hoffman crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open and snared sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

The 72 golfers in the morning wave can only shake their heads at this. It was truly the tale of two first rounds today. No one in the early draw broke par. Hoffman split eight (of 14) fairways and went 7-for-7 in scrambling while circling seven birdies. His longest dropped in from just 11'1" at the par-4 ninth hole. His greatest challenge to save par was met at the par-4 fourth where he rolled in his longest conversion of the day (from 12'8"). At last check, he ranked third in strokes gained: tee-to-green (5.967) and first in strokes gained: putting (3.791).
Mar 26 - 8:12 PM

Charley Hoffman shot 2-over-par 31-43=74 in his second round of the World Golf Championship-Cadillac Championship.

As indicated by his nine-hole splits, Hoffman endured a brutal walk in. He sat bogey-free 5-under after 12 holes with five birdies, including conversions from 10'10" and 22'10" at Nos. 12 and 13, respectively. He lost his mojo after finding water off the tee at the par-3 fourth. Forced to re-tee, he found a greenside bunker and slopped his way to a quadruple bogey. Now unraveled, he added three bogeys to waste all of his early work. At even-par 144, Hoffman is nine strokes off the pace of 36-hole leader J.B. Holmes.
Mar 6 - 10:28 PM

Charley Hoffman submitted a 2-under-par 36-34=70 for his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Hoffman has been relatively quiet since a co-runner-up at the Humana Challenge in late January, but he's earned early attention at Trump National Doral. He went 6-for-13 in scoring opportunities today, including conversions for birdie from 41'4" and 16'3" at the 11th and 18th holes, respectively. And while he also squared four bogeys, including a pair of three-putts, he salvaged par from 11'7" at the par-3 fourth.
Mar 5 - 5:17 PM

Charley Hoffman was among four golfers to gain entry into this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship via the updated FedExCup standings.

The top 10 at the conclusion of The Honda Classic gained entry. Hoffman ranks sixth. He hasn't qualified for the WGC-Cadillac since 2011; he placed T24. Robert Streb (second in FedExCup points) will be making his debut at Trump National Doral, as will James Hahn (10th); that is, unless Hahn opts to stay close to home what with his first child due next week. Sang-moon Bae (fourth) will be making his second appearance after a solo 71st in 2012.
Mar 2 - 12:50 PM

Charley Hoffman is a veteran of eight Northern Trust Opens and returns to Riviera Country Club this week.

Hoffman has made six of his eight cuts in this event, with his T12 last year ranking as the best. Though he is sixth in the FedExCup standings, his form has cooled of late. He tied for 53rd in the Waste Management Phoenix Open before missing the cut at Torrey Pines.
Feb 17 - 9:07 PM

Charley Hoffman carved up PGA West's Palmer Private to the tune of a bogey-free, 8-under-par 34-30=64, grabbing the clubhouse lead at 21-under 267.

Hoffman put on a birdie barrage, coming in with six birdies on the back nine of Palmer Private at PGA West. He did it in an unorthodox way, holing out twice from off the green and rolling in two putts from outside of 20 feet. After an opening 1-under-par, Hoffman closed out the Humana 20-under over the final three rounds. He will patiently wait in the clubhouse as he tries to win his second Humana Challenge and also his second event of the season.
Jan 25 - 5:41 PM

Charley Hoffman fashioned a 9-under-par 32-31=63 at PGA West's Nicklaus Private in his second round of the Humana Challenge.

Boy, did he capitalize on his one spin on the easiest course on the PGA TOUR. Despite only 12 greens in regulation, Hoffman converted nine par breakers, two of which for eagle (at the par-5 fourth and 16th holes). He played the set of four par 5s in 6-under. Bogeys clipped him at the par-4 second and 12th holes, but he reached the halfway point in 10-under 134, five strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Today's is his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he opened the 2013 Travelers Championship with 61. Look for him at Palmer Private at PGA West on Saturday.
Jan 23 - 5:34 PM

Charley Hoffman blitzed The Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort for nine birdies en route to a 7-under-par 34-32=66 in his second round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

All of Hoffman's par breakers occurred on holes where he hit the greens in regulation; he totaled 15 GIR on the day. His longest conversions ran 12'8" at the par-4 13th hole and 29'4" at the par-5 15th. He found trouble, however, at the par-4 17th where he took a penalty after an errant approach left of the green. After a subsequent two-putt, Hoffman penciled in a 6. The good news is that at 10-under 136, he shared the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
