Charley Hoffman

We gratefully acknowledge the outstanding achievements and contributions that Charley Hoffman has made in the area of Sports. Charley practically grew up on the links at the Stone Ridge Country Club. At the age of seven he picked up a golf club, and over the next 31 years he worked at dominating every course onto which he stepped. After his graduation from PHS in 1995, he became a member of the UNLV Running Rebels golf team where he played in the 1998 NCAA Championship and received an Honorable Mention All-American award. After earning his BS in communications, Charley joined the professional ranks in 2000, where he has since won three PGA Tour tournaments, including the 2015 OHL Classic at Mayakoba, and he has finished in the top ten in 36 PGA Tour tournaments. His career earnings as a pro golfer exceed $17 million. Perhaps his crowning achievement, however, was channeling his talent and status into The Charley Hoffman Foundation (CHF), a nonprofit organization benefiting kids all over San Diego and Las Vegas. Through donations and fundraising efforts, Hoffman and his wife Stacy are helping improve the lives of children stricken with disease. The CHF has raised over $1,300,000 for charities such as Blessings in a Backpack, Cystic Fibrosis, Goodie Two Shoes, Junior Diabetes Foundation, and San Diego Junior Golf Association. All the while, Hoffman continues his game, currently ranked 7th in the FedEx Cup, and 50th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Not bad for a kid whose favorite sport was baseball.
