Charley Hoffman finishes 8th at US Open

Charley Hoffman, aka OurGuyCharley, once again flirted with making a major breakthrough over the weekend, finishing eighth at the US Open in Erin Hills, Wisconsin.

Charley put together rounds of 70-70-68-71 to finish at 9-under-par 279, seven shots behind the winner, Brooks Koepka. OurGuyCharley, now in his second season with Flash as a sponsor, hung with golf’s best throughout the tourney and was closer than meets the eye to capturing his first major title.#OurGuyCharley

Consider that he birdied five of his first eight holes on Saturday to grab a one-shot lead but ran into trouble on the back side and carded three bogeys. The only blemish on his Sunday round was a triple-bogey 7 at the par-4 eighth hole. If he had made a par there, he would have finished in a tie for second.

Still, he recovered with two more birdies over the final ten holes to post a career-best finish at a US Open.

Remember, too, that Charley and Flash had a strong showing at the Masters in April, setting the early pace with an opening round of 65 and hanging with the leaders throughout the weekend before finishing 22nd.

It’s only a matter of time before OurGuyCharley gets his first major triumph!
