World No. 74 Charley Hoffman authored a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Genesis Open to reach 11-under 273, up four spots to T5 with play still in progress.
This was the 40-year-old's 11th appearance, second top 25, but first top 10, brushing aside a previous-best T12 in 2014. After kicking off in 68-68-70, he began the final round in a five-way T9 on 7-under, 10 adrift of 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson. The San Diego native squared a lone bogey-5 at 5 but erased it with three birdies at 3, 11 and 12, and an eagle at the par-5 first from 4'9". For the week, he was No. 1 in eagles (with four) and T70 (tied last) with just eight birdies, but only had five bogeys, which is currently T2. This was his ninth start of the season and third top 25, but first top 10. It's also Hoffman's first top 10 since he won the 2016 Valero Texas Open 43 weeks ago. Feb 19 - 7:58 PM

World No. 66 Charley Hoffman contests his fourth SBS Tournament of Champions via his win at the Valero Texas Open last April, where he came from two back with a closing 69 and birdied the 72nd hole to win by one.

The newly minted 40-year-old (Dec. 27th) enters the week with three straight missed cuts to begin 2016-17, most recently at the OHL Classic where he was a past champion. Since posting a T13 at The Barclays in August, his last five starts read: MC-T52-MC-MC-MC. Last season began with three straight MCs as well but the UNLV alum eventually carved out eight top 25s in 26 events, but the VTO win was his only top 10. All four of Hoffman's wins on TOUR have been in come-from-behind fashion. His scoring average in 12 loops of The Plantation Course at Kapalua (par 73) is 70.92 with a T14 on last visit in 2015 his best finish.

Past champion Charley Hoffman looks to rebound from a pair of missed cuts as he turns his focus to this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Hoffman is 0-for-2 to start the season, including a missed cut at his home event, the Shriners. Luckily he now heads to a course where he's previously won. During the 2015 edition he rattled off four rounds between 66-and-68 to finish the week with a one-stroke victory. The path to victory that week came on holes 4 thru 6 as he played them 9-under for the week. His final tally was 17-under 267 so those three holes accounted for more than half of his damage. While many gamers may be hesitant to re-invest, this might be the week to do so.

Due to inclement weather today and in the upcoming forecast, tournament officials announced split tee times for round two of the BMW Championship. Fighting through that weather, Charley Hoffman opened his week with a 3-under-par 36-33=69 to rebound nicely from last week's missed cut.

Hoffman missed the cut last week at TPC Boston, a venue where he was a past winner and also posted a solo third in 2015. The 39-year-old hopped right back on the train today, despite not having his best stuff with the flat stick. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted an impressive 15 greens in regulation. From there he rolled in just two putts from outside three feet and also missed a 4'4" par-saving attempt at the par-3 sixth hole. It's good to see Hoffman find his tee-to-green game today, but he'll need to dial in the putter if he wants to hang around near the top as the week progresses. On the day, he lost 1.858 strokes putting.

Past champ Charley Hoffman labored to a 5-over-par 37-39=76 in today's first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Playing his 33rd lap at TPC Boston (in the FedExCup era), this is the third time the 2010 winner has posted a career-worst 76 at the track. He was the 36-hole leader last year and ate 76 in the third round, before rebounding with a closing 67 for solo third. As would be expected, the UNLV alum's stats suffered today, most notably a -3.303 SG: Around-the-Green. He was 7-over thru 13 holes following a run of bogey-double-triple on holes 11-13, but collected himself enough to birdie the 14th (from 33'11"), and a walk-off 4 at the par-5 18th after stiffing his approach from 109 yards away to 18 inches.

Charley Hoffman crafted a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of The Barclays to wrap his 10th appearance in the FedExCup Playoff opener at 3-under 281.

The 39-year-old is one (of 16) players to qualify for the Playoffs in each year since their inception in 2007. He opened with 71-69 and rebounded from a 74 in R3 with today's four-birdie effort, bumping 26 places to T17 with play still in progress. The UNLV alum striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, posting positive numbers in all strokes gained stats, highlighted by a 2.674 in SG: Tee-to-Green. He circled three birdies the conventional way, each from inside of five feet, adding a 19-footer from the fringe at the par-4 fifth. Hoffman kept the card clean with four par-savers from between six and 16 feet. He's projecting to climb seven places to 26th in the FEC standings.

Prior to the start of round one, Charley Hoffman has withdrawn from this week's RBC Canadian Open with an illness, he will be replaced by Miguel Angel Carballo. UPDATE: Hoffman returned to action on July 28th at the PGA Championship and missed the cut by three on 5-over-par 75-70=145.

With no injury cited and just an illness, we should expect Hoffman to return at full strength for next week's PGA Championship. This 11th-hour news is always tough to swallow, but dedicated gamers may be able to swap before their lineups lock. Miguel Angel Carballo will be making his third appearance at the Canadian Open but first at Glen Abbey Golf Club.

Charley Hoffman kicked off his week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 to sit four off the current pace set by William McGirt.

Making his fourth appearance at Firestone Country Club, Hoffman split eight (of 14) fairways en route to nine GIR. He walked off the course gaining 3.811 strokes over the field average and nearly half of those (1.787) came via the flat stick. The UNLV product rolled in four putts from outside nine feet. Most notable was a 23'6" birdie bomb at the par-3 seventh hole. His lone bogey of the day came at the par-4 ninth hole where an errant tee shot forced him to pitch back into the fairway before attacking the green. Hoffman sits at T6 on the live leaderboard, putting him on early pace to eclipse his career best at Firestone CC (T22/2007).

Charley Hoffman smoothed a 6-under-par 34-30=64 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 11-under 269, up 38 spots on the live leaderboard to T8.

Part of a trio of runners-up last year in his ninth appearance, the 39-year-old hung around enough this week to toss-up a closing-64, matching a personal best at the Nelson (2015/R3) in his 34th career lap. He found half (of 14) fairways for a third straight round but improved to 14 greens in regulation and carded six conventional birdies for 1.500 putts per GIR. Hoffman squared two, including a 3-putt at the par-4 third, but erased them with his final par breaker, a hole-out eagle-3 at the 16th from 30'5" away.

Charley Hoffman ended his week at the Zurich Classic with a 6-under-par 34-32=66 to close out the tournament at 10-under 206.

Last week's winner in San Antonio got right back on the horse this week, and could have found himself right in the mix had he received a few good bounces. His final round got started with back-to-back birdies but a water ball off the tee on the par-4 fourth hole slowed the momentum. With preferred lies in use due to soggy conditions, Hoffman had no issues attacking the pins and his flat stick cooperated, as well. His third round included seven putts made from outside eight feet. With the course playing easy today, this 10-under stands no chance but gamers should be very pleased with this effort from Hoffman as he shows no signs of slowing down after his fourth career victory.

Last week's Valero Texas Open winner Charley Hoffman kept his momentum rolling with a 5-under-par 32-35=67 during the first round of this week's Zurich Classic.

It wouldn't have been surprising to see a bit of a letdown after he got the fourth-round monkey off his back last week. Hoffman was having none of that, though, circling five birdies on the front nine alone, dropping just one shot along the way after a missed 4-footer on the par-4 sixth hole. That wasn't even his shortest missed putt on the round as he missed a 2'11" birdie attempt on the par-4 16th hole. Gamers worried about a letdown should rest easy after round one and Hoffman should be very pleased about this opening 5-under considering the two-pack of short putts he missed.

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.

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.

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.
