Texas joy for Hoffman

Charley Hoffman birdied the final hole to win the Valero Texas Open.

With Patrick Reed finishing on 11-under-par, Hoffman needed to birdie the final hole to avoid a play-off and the 39-year-old delivered as he putted from nine feet to secure his fourth win on the PGA Tour.

Hoffman reached the turn in level par but birdied the 11th and 14th to give himself every chance of the victory.

Playing partner Reed missed birdie putts on the 16th and 17th before putting pressure on Hoffman with a tap-in birdie on the 18th.

Hoffman set up his birdie with a nice shot from the greenside bunker and he rolled in from nine feet to avoid a play-off.

"This was my hardest one. Grabbing that lead and holding on to it - it's tough to keep the pedal down and give yourself birdie opportunities and win golf tournaments," Hoffman said.

"I definitely dodged bullets there. I made my par saves and he missed his birdies, so I was able to keep my momentum."

Chad Collins birdied four of the last five holes to finish with a career-best third, while third round leader Ricky Barnes dropped out of contention with a closing 74 to finish in a tie for fourth on nine-under alongside Kevin Chappell, Billy Horschel, Ryan Palmer and Martin Piller.
