Charley Hoffman won’t lie to you. He wasn’t exactly a barrel of laughs that Sunday night two weeks ago as he drove the 2-1/2 hours from Augusta, Georgia, to Hilton Head, South Carolina. And who could blame him?
Hoffman had just squandered a chance to win his first major with a 6-over 78 in the final round of the Masters. After starting Sunday a mere two strokes off the lead, he tumbled down the leaderboard into a tie for 22nd.
