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. Sep 16 - 5:31 PM

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.
Aug 6 - 6:49 PM

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.
Aug 5 - 5:55 PM

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.
Aug 4 - 5:25 PM

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).
Jul 30 - 7:29 PM

World No. 38 Charley Hoffman fired a 7-under-par 32-33=65 on Moving Day at the RBC Canadian Open to throw 17-under 199 on the board, good for a one-shot lead over Kevin Chappell heading to Sunday's finale.

After kicking off in 68-66, the 40-year-old began T5 on 10-under, two back of 36-hole leader Martin Flores. Playing out of the fourth-to-last twosome, he conjured six (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.108 strokes approach-the-green and 1.326 around-the-green. The San Diego native squared a lone bogey-5 at 17 (failed scramble), smothered by seven conventional birdies at Nos. 4, 5, 9, 12, 13, 15 and 18, all from inside of 10 feet, adding a pitch-in 3 at 10 from 44'5" away. He posted 1.600 putts per GIR and 0.886 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts. This is Hoffman's second 54-hole lead/co-lead this season in 25 starts, finished T2 at the Arnold Palmer, and fourth in 331 career events, having yet to convert.

World No. 38 Charley Hoffman styled a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach 10-under 134, up 31 spots on the live leaderboard to T5, two short of clubhouse leader Martin Flores.

This is the 40-year-old's seventh RBC with three prior top 25s and two top 10s, including a best of T4 in 2010. He opened with 4-under 68 (one eagle-3, four birdies, two bogeys), posting a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR and -1.385 SG: Putting. The UNLV alum drastically improved with the flat stick on Day 2, recording 1.571 putts per GIR and 2.726 SGP at the time he signed his card. On nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he outpaced a lone bogey-5 at eight with seven birdies at holes 2, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 16, three from between 12 and 21 feet.
Jul 28 - 6:46 PM

Charley Hoffman stalled late in his opening round but still managed a 3-under-par 31-36=67 to kickoff The 146th Open, placing him just two strokes off the early pacesetters.

Hoffman opened his week with the highlight of the round. He sprayed his tee ball wide right, nearing OB, but then recovered by holing out with an iron in hand for an unconventional eagle from the thick stuff. It would remain the lone eagle carded at the par-4 first today. Hoffman would stay busy, adding four birdies to offset a trio of bogeys. Two of the three squares came at 16 and 17, putting a damper on the great start. Despite the poor finish, this still easily goes in the books as his best opening lap at The Open (the first time he's been inside the top 50 after R1 of this event). Links golf has not been kind to Hoffman, but he bucked that trend today. Next up, he'll put his weather gear on and buckle up for blustery conditions in round two.
Jul 20 - 2:20 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 39 Charley Hoffman orchestrated a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in the second round of the John Deere Classic to reach 7-under 135, up nine spots on the live leaderboard to T5, two shy of clubhouse leader Chesson Hadley.

The 40-year-old landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.097 strokes off-the-tee and 1.283 approaching-the-green. He went out in even-par, exchanging three birdies at 13, 14 and 16, with three bogeys at 12 (3-putt from 43'3"), 15 and 17, the latter two missed par-savers from inside of five feet. The UNLV alum came home in blemish-free 3-under, circling holes 2, 6, and 7, posting 1.733 putts per GIR and a dismal -0.587 SG: Putting. His six birdies all dropped from inside of 13 feet, needing 31 total putts. This is Hoffman's seventh Deere, first since a missed cut in 2013, with a best (and lone top 10) of T7 in 2010. He checked in off consecutive top 10s at the U.S. Open (8th) and the Travelers (T3).
Jul 14 - 2:02 PM

World No. 49 Charley Hoffman smoothed a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to reach 10-under 270, up eight spots to T2, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead and just the second blemish-free round of the day thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Hoffman finished in a two-way T3, two shots out of a 2-man playoff involving Jordan Spieth and Daniel Berger.

After opening in 69-67-68, the 40-year-old began T10 on 6-under, six back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. Playing out of the sixth-to-last twosome, he conjured six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.321 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 2.383 around-the-green. The UNLV alum circled four birdies at Nos. 6, 9, 13 and 15, highlighted by a hole-out 4 from a greenside bunker at the par-5 sixth. He posted a commercial 1.818 putts per GIR and 0.330 SG: Putting, needing 27 total putts. This was the California native's 10th top 25 of the season in 22 starts and fifth top 10, second straight after solo 8th at the U.S. Open. If the runner-up holds, it'll be his second this season, joining T2 at Bay Hill (as 54-hole co-leader), and seventh in 328 career events. It's Hoffman's fourth top 25 at the Travelers in eight tries, and third top 10 with a best of T2 in 2012.
Jun 25 - 5:15 PM

World No. 55 Charley Hoffman orchestrated a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the final round of the 117th U.S. Open to post 9-under 279, down one place and currently solo 8th. UPDATE: With play completed, Hoffman finished solo 8th -- a career best in majors -- and joins champion Brooks Koepka and Brandt Snedeker as the only three players to post all four rounds in the red; the top 10 earns him a return trip next year.

After opening in 70-70-68, the 40-year-old began T7, four short of 54-hole leader. He hit 12 (of 14) fairways and peppered 16 greens in regulation, suffering just one blemish, a triple bogey-7 at eight, offset by four birdies at Nos. 5, 7, 11 and 17, all from inside of 12 feet, taking 31 total putts. The UNLV alum's hiccup at the eighth started with a wayward drive, took four to get on, and then 3-putted from 27'11". This was his sixth U.S. Open and first finish inside the top 30, brushing aside a previous-best T37 last year. It was Hoffman's 24th overall major appearance, third top 25 and second top 10, right now bettering a previous-best T9 at the 2015 Masters. It's his ninth top 25 of the season in 21 starts and should be a fourth top 10.
Jun 18 - 7:54 PM

Charley Hoffman flew out of the gates before eventually posting a 4-under-par 31-37=68 in round three of the U.S. Open, advancing to T5 on the live leaderboard, settling three shots behind pacesetter Justin Thomas.

Hoffman had the lead at one point on day three after making five birdies in his opening eight holes. But three bogeys coming home meant he fell back to finish at 8-under 208. The American's front-nine circles came at 1, 2, 5, 7 and 8, the longest putt a 13'12" conversion at the second hole. After hitting 9-under with a 5'8" circle at 8, Hoffman dropped back with a bogey at 10 and also lost shots at 15 and 17, the former after laying up but flying the green with his second. At least he birdied the two par 5s at 14 and 18 to keep Thomas within his sights. Hoffman missed just two fairways today, hitting 13 greens in regulation and taking 26 putts. Despite the back-nine wobble, he's in position to land a first major and the predicted strong winds in Sunday's closer could work in his favor.
