Charley Hoffman, 47, holds early lead at Charles Schwab

Charley Hoffman posted a bogey-free, 5-under 65 to take the first-round lead at the Charles Schwab Challenge on Thursday in Fort Worth, Texas.

The 47-year-old birdied two of his three holes to get off to a strong start on a day where scoring chances were limited at Colonial Country Club. Hoffman’s round was enough for a one-shot advantage over five golfers tied for second.

Brian Harman, Tony Finau, Davis Riley, South Korea’s S.H. Kim and Scotland’s Martin Laird opened with rounds of 4-under 66.

Hayden Buckley, Pierceson Coody, Robby Shelton and England’s Callum Tarren opened at 3-under 67. Collin Morikawa, coming off last week’s near-miss at the PGA Championship, shot a 2-under 68.

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler carded a triple bogey en route to a 2-over 72, the first time he’s opened a PGA Tour event with a round over par since the 2023 Tour Championship.
