OurGuyCharley in hunt after opening 3-under at Genesis Open

OurGuyCharley, aka Charley Hoffman, a proud member of the Flash Global family, opened with a 3-under par 68 at Riviera Country Club in LOurGuyCharleyos Angeles.

#OurGuyCharley birdied two of the first three holes and added an eagle at the par-5 17 before finishing with a par on the closing hole. In between Charley played extremely solid golf, the only hiccup coming with a bogey on the 12th. He had the wand working today, as he averaged just 1.6 putts per green hit in regulation.

When he’s putting this good it bodes well for him and the Flash Global logo to get some air time over the next couple of days. As of right now, he sits just four shots off the lead, in a tie for 12th. View the complete leaderboard.

OurGuyCharley and his playing partners, Peter Malnati and Luke Donald, have a 3:33 EST tee time for the second round on Friday. Follow the action on Golf Channel (2-6 p.m.).
