Charley Hoffman came up one stroke short of forcing a playoff Sunday.
So what went wrong? Not much, save for probably one or two shots.
“I mis-clubbed a couple times, the wind in the wrong direction didn't help you when I thought it was helping,” Hoffman said. “All in all, the bogey on 14 sort of killed my round. If I hit the tee shot in the fairway I had a chance to go for it in two, ended up in the cactus and had a chance for par.
“That's all I had. That sort of slowed me down. Catch one there, you never know.”
Still, Hoffman did about all he could, shooting a final-round 68 ( click here to replay the round ) -- only one score was lower on Sunday.
He’ll also remember his ride in an Air Force jet earlier this week.
”The best part of my week was going up in the jet fighter on Tuesday and seeing what those guys do for a living,” Hoffman said. “It's amazing what these guys put their bodies through.”
