Charley Hoffman Rallies to OHL Title

There’s no doubting that Charley Hoffman bears an uncanny resemblance to actor Jeff Daniels, when the latter embodies his “Dumb and Dumber” alter ego Harry Dunn.

There’s also no doubting the coincidence that the very same weekend that Daniels returned to the big screen as Dunn in “Dumb and Dumber To” for the first time in 20 years was the same weekend that Hoffman broke his 108-start drought to win his third career PGA title.

Hoffman broke the drought thanks to a closing 5-under 66. He suffered a 105-start lapse between his first title and his second.

He finished the tournament at 17-under, although it looked like Hoffman and everyone else would be chasing Danny Lee on the final day.

Lee fired seven straight birdies on the front nine to race out in front, but lost his hot streak on the back nine, bogeying 12, 15 and 18 to finish 4-under.

Shawn Stefani put the pressure on Hoffman late with a birdie on 17, but his bogey on 18 let Hoffman play it safe with a two-putt birdie of his own on 18.

It was his only blemish of the day, as he hit six birdies.

The crowded field saw 22 players finish at least 10 strokes under par. Defending champion Harris English shot 7-under to finish tied for 37th.
