Mr. Perfect Charley Hoffman Body Slams The Competition At The Deutsche Bank Championship

I was watching the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship with my buddy Jay and he remarked, "that dude looks like Mr. Perfect Curt Henning." He was talking about Charley Hoffman. From the back he really did, and he did play a perfect final round. Even the PGA Tour website had their title story as Playoff Perfection.

Hoffman started the day four shots back but took over the tournament with a string of birdies early in his round. He continued his birdie barrage with six on the back nine, one of which was a hole out from the bunker on the 13th, making that the shot of the day. Hoffman was truly firing on all cylinders.

The man with the golden locks played the course aggressively. On the par 3 16th, Hoffman was comfortably ahead and the announce team said that Charley should play it safe and aim at the right side of the green where there was more room to work with. Hoffman took dead aim at the pin which was on the left side of the green. A miss left would leave him short-sided and staring at a bogey. Hoffman stuck it left of the pin and made the putt for birdie. Nail in the coffin.

United States Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin will make his captain's picks tomorrow morning and some are saying that he has to give Charley Hoffman serious consideration. Hoffman style of play would be a great fit for the American team. He has a great demeanor about him, and he never seemed to get up or down, handling the pressure of his competitor nipping at his heels.

Hoffman did all the things he needed to do to win down the stretch. He hit his fairways and greens, and made all the important putts. No one is perfect at the game of golf, but Charley came really close today.

Maybe he has peaked at the right time and has caught the eyes of the right people. Some think so and some are saying "Sorry Charley". We will find out tomorrow. I would give him the nod. When it is time to go into competition, who better than Mr. Perfect Charley Hoffman to have in my corner to tag in and finish out the match. Have a great round and always hit your target.
