Fourth Appearance (Best Finish: T14, 2015) Qualifying win: Valero Texas Open
American Charley Hoffman is no stranger to Kapalua, making three previous appearances. When he closed out his one-shot victory over Patrick Reed at the Valero Texas Open, Hoffman punched his fourth ticket to the Sentry Tournament of Champions, where he will try to improve on his T14 finish in the 2015 event.
In Hoffman’s four PGA TOUR wins, he has come from behind in each instance, shooting a final-round 69 at the Valero Texas Open to erase a two-shot deficit heading into Sunday.
“I knew I was close coming the back-9 and I knew I needed to still make a few birdies to have a chance and I was able to make a few coming in with a couple par saves and this feeling never gets old getting in the Media Center doing interviews. This is the fun part of golf.”
