Charley Hoffman overcame a two-shot deficit with a final-round 3-under-par 36-33=69 at the Valero Texas Open for a 72-hole aggregate of 12-under 276 (66-71-70-69), good for a one-shot win over playing competitor Patrick Reed.
This is Hoffman's fourth TOUR title in his 293rd career start (288 as a pro), first at the Valero in his 11th visit, and first since winning the 2015 OHL Classic. He played out of the penultimate group for the fourth straight weekend round on TOUR and began the finale in a two-way T3 on 9-under, two shy of 54-hole leader Ricky Barnes. The 39-year-old split 10 (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation, recording 1.483 strokes gained: tee-to-green and 1.320 strokes gained: putting. He bogeyed the third but bounced back with birdie at the fourth to turn even and one back. Hoffman came home in bogey-free 3-under, circling birdies on 11 and 14, and culminating with an up-and-down birdie from a greenside bunker on the par-5 18th, dropping the winner from 9'2". This was his first top 10 of the season in his 13th start. Apr 24 - 6:11 PM

Charley Hoffman stayed in contention with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in today's third round of the Valero Texas Open to post 9-under 207, down one into a two-way T3, two back of 54-hole leader Ricky Barnes.

Hoffman had a front-row seat to Barnes' 67 in R3, playing in the penultimate threesome with him and Patrick Reed, who shot 70. Last week at the Heritage, he was in the penultimate group in R3 and R4 as well, but shot 71 and 75, respectively, for T14. Once again, the 39-year-old will play out of the second-to-last group in tomorrow's finale after today's four-birdie two-bogey effort. He found eight (of 14) fairways and managed 10 greens in regulation, posting 1.600 putts per GIR. Hoffman had a 5'11" birdie try at the par-5 18th to get OUT of the penultimate habit and into the final threesome on Sunday, but missed.
Apr 23 - 8:13 PM

Charley Hoffman maintained his position near the top of the Valero Texas Open leaderboard after a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the second round to reach the 36-hole checkpoint at 7-under 137.

Hoffman kicked off his round at No. 10 and couldn't save par from 8'2", swallowing a bogey at his first hole, the complete opposite of round one where he opened with a circle. The UNLV product bounced back just fine, holing 43'1" of birdie putts at the par-3 13th and par-5 14th holes combined. The highlight of the round came later at the par-5 second hole where Hoffman splashed in from the greenside bunker (70 feet, 7 inches) to card an eagle three. Despite the great hole out, Hoffman still lost 1.167 strokes tee-to-green on the round. On the flip side, he currently ranks sixth in strokes gained putting and will enter the weekend just three strokes off the pace set by Brendan Steele.

Charley Hoffman bombarded the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio to the tune of a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to grab an early lead at the Valero Texas Open as the Thursday a.m. wave finishes up.

Hoffman opened his round by stiffing a 129-yard approach shot to just 14 inches for a tap-in birdie at the par-4 first hole. From there he let his putter take over, rolling in five putts from outside 10 feet. The longest was a 22-footer for birdie on the par-3 13th hole. His lone blemish came as a result of an errant tee shot at the par-4 17th hole. He ended up with a 5'3" par-saving attempt but skimmed the edge to ironically swallow his lone bogey of the round on one of the easiest holes on the course. Hoffman arrived as a course horse, posting T13 or better in all six editions of the Valero held at the current venue. He's on his way to another strong finish through day one.
Apr 21 - 5:49 PM

Overnight tri-leader Charley Hoffman patched together an even-par 34-37=71 on day three of the RBC Heritage and arrived at the three-quarter pole on 6-under 207, down one spot on the leaderboard and one shy of 54-hole leader Luke Donald.

Hoffman co-led by one with two others thru 36 holes, opening his seventh RBC in twin 68s. It's the third time he's led on TOUR this season, pacing the Shell Houston Open after rounds one and two, but would eventually finish a disappointing T33. The 39-year-old, playing out of the penultimate twosome, landed just six (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.596 in strokes gained: tee-to-green and 0.965 strokes gained: putting. He circled five for 1.545 putts per GIR, including a 23-footer at the par-4 first and a 25-footer at the par-4 16th, but erased them all with five squares, all on failed scrambles, ending on a down note with a bogey-bogey finish.
Apr 16 - 7:01 PM

Charley Hoffman cruised toward a 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the second round of the RBC Heritage, joining Kevin Chappell and Jason Day with a share of the 36-hole lead at 6-under 136.

Hoffman got the flat stick warmed up right out of the gates, rolling in 71'11" of putts over the opening four holes. That concluded with an 11'9" birdie on the par-4 13th. He found tree trouble on the par-5 15th to drop a shot and squared another one when his approach shot came up short of the green on the par-4 18th hole. He cruised home with a blemish-free 2-under on the inward nine, including a great scramble on the par-4 ninth after an errant tee shot left him way out of position. Hoffman arrived with a pair of top 10s on his Heritage resume, and could find a third by week's end.
Apr 15 - 6:20 PM

Charley Hoffman cruised out to a 3-under-par 32-36=68 during the opening round of the RBC Heritage.

Hoffman got off to a quick start today with three birdies in his first four holes. The first two came via great putts, both outside of 19 feet, totaling 45'10". The third circle came on the par-3 fourth hole where he stuck his 188-yard tee ball to inside two feet for a tap-in birdie. Hoffman did a great job handling the windy condition in round one as he searches for his third top 10 of his RBC Heritage career.
Apr 14 - 1:33 PM

Charley Hoffman holed his fair share of putts on the way toward a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the first round of the 80th Masters.

Hoffman opened his week with three straight pars before squaring a bogey at the par-3 fourth hole. He bounced back nicely with a 28-foot birdie bomb on the par-4 fifth. The real putting extravaganza began on the par-3 12th hole after he splashed his tee ball. From there, his approach landed 54-feet from the hole, and he buried it for a clutch bogey-save. Hoffman dialed it back up from downtown on the following hole, splashing home a birdie from the same distance as the previous hole. Hoffman owns top 30s in both of his Masters appearances and he's off to another strong start through 18 holes.
Apr 7 - 2:40 PM

Overnight leader Charley Hoffman found just six greens in regulation en route to a 2-over-par 35-39=74 in the third round of the Shell Houston Open and at 8-under 208, dropped six places on the leaderboard to T7, three in arrears to 54-hole co-leaders Jim Herman and Jamie Lovemark.

This was Hoffman's fourth 36-hole lead/co-lead in his 290th career start. He's previously gone 0-for-3, most recently at the 2015 Deutsche Bank, eventually finishing third. The 39-year-old led by one over playing partner Lovemark after rounds of 64-70. He opened with five straight pars before slam-dunking a greenside bunker shot from 56'8" for a '3' on the par-4 sixth. Hoffman added another zero putt on the seventh, dropping a 15-footer from the fringe for par. At the turn, he had nine putts thru nine holes but had hit only two greens in regulation. The Las Vegas resident missed the green on the par-3 10th as well, but this time it cost him, squaring his first bogey. He bogeyed the par-5 13th (failed scramble) and then doubled the par-3 14th after hitting his tee shot OB. Hoffman, who ranks 156th on TOUR in R3 scoring average (71.17), regrouped enough to drop an 11-footer for birdie on the par-5 15th to complete his scoring.
Apr 2 - 7:47 PM

Charley Hoffman kept his foot on the gas with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the second round of the Shell Houston Open, staking his claim of the clubhouse lead at 10-under 134. UPDATE: With play completed, Hoffman leads by one over Jamie Lovemark.

Hoffman pelted 10 (of 14) fairways on his round today in route to a four-pack of birdies, offset by just two bogeys. The first circle came from downtown as he splashed in a 39-footer for birdie on the par-4 third hole. He backed that up with a tap-in birdie at the par-5 fourth. His first blemish came on the par-5 13th when he got aggressive when going for the green and yanked it left into the native area. He was forced to drop, taking a penalty stroke, and ultimately squaring a bogey, his second of the week. Hoffman walked off the course ranked inside the top 10 in both strokes gained:tee-to-green and strokes gained:putting, a very balanced approach thus far.
Apr 1 - 3:35 PM

Charley Hoffman bombarded Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course with an 8-under-par 31-33=64 in his opening round at the Shell Houston Open to grab the early clubhouse lead.

Hoffman opened on the back nine with birdies in four of his first five holes. Three of those four birdie rolls were from outside 11 feet. His lone blemish came on the par-3 16th when he found a greenside bunker and couldn't make the 12'2" par-saving attempt. After the turn, Hoffman added another birdie train to help DFS gamers, this time it started at the par-4 first with a hole out from the greenside bunker and ended at the par-4 fifth hole with a relatively easy 4-footer. Hoffman was just one stroke shy of the GC of Houston course record (63, co-owned by three golfers). Entering the week with a 9-for-9 record at this event, he's well on his way to another strong finish here in Humble, Texas.
Mar 31 - 6:52 PM

Charley Hoffman authored a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of the Valspar Championship to post 5-under 208, up 13 places on the live leaderboard to T2 and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Hoffman is T3, three swings back of 54-hole leader Bill Haas.

Thru 36 holes holes on the Copperhead Course, there's been just five bogey-free rounds, with Jordan Spieth adding a sixth earlier on Saturday. Hoffmann had a chance to join the party, but bogeyed the par-4 18th from the middle of the fairway, failing to get up-and-down from a green side bunker. Up to that point, he had played his first 17 holes in blemish-free 5-under, circling birdies on Nos. 1, 8, 12, 14 and 15. The 39-year-old, looking for his first top 10 of the season in his eighth start, hit just nine greens in regulation, but holed-out twice from green side bunkers for birdies. At the time he signed his card, he ranks second in strokes gained: tee-to-green but 53rd in strokes gained: putting.
Mar 12 - 4:19 PM

Charley Hoffman steadied a 2-under-par 34-35=69 to open his week at the Valspar Championship.

Hoffman played 10 holes of bogey-free, 2-under golf before squaring his first (and only) bogey of the day at the par-5 11th hole. His first birdie was a 7'3" birdie on the par-5 first and the second came from a very similar distance, a 7'1" birdie splash on the par-4 sixth. Hoffman entered the week having signed for 76 or worse in eight (of 30) career rounds at Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course, so it will be all about avoiding the big round from here on out.
Mar 10 - 12:52 PM

Charley Hoffman tacked on a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to post 6-under 138, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Making his fifth WGC-Cadillac appearance, Hoffman signed for an opening 68 and chased with today's four-birdie two-bogey effort. He found just seven (of 14) fairways but for a second straight day, 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.714 putts per GIR. The 39-year-old penciled circles on Nos. 1, 7, 8 and 15 to outpace bogeys on 3 (watered his approach) and 14 on a failed scramble. His split ranged from 20 inches to a long of 14'5" at the par-5 first and totaled 29 putts for a second consecutive round.
Mar 4 - 4:14 PM

Charley Hoffman signed a colorful card in round one of the WGC-Cadillac Championship, posting a 4-under-par 34-34=68 on the day.

Hoffman started on the back nine and conducted a birdie train right off the bat. He splashed three putts from outside 11 feet in his first four holes to sit at 4-under through four. The longest coming 46'3" on the par-4 11th hole. Hoffman added three bogeys and one more circle before making the turn with just one par on his card. The UNLV product came into the clubhouse with a much quieter closing nine, dropping two birdies while avoiding any more bogeys. Hoffman landed 14 greens in regulation on the day and sits just two adrift through round one.
