Charley Hoffman Calls U.S. Open ‘Event Run by Amateurs’

June 18, 2016

Charley Hoffman is not happy with the USGA.

The four-time PGA Tour winner shot a second-round 74 at Oakmont on Friday afternoon to move his 36-hole U.S. Open score to 6 over. Not long after stepping off the demanding course, Hoffman aired his grievances with the golf governing body in charge of the national championship via his Instagram account.

“Just venting a bit,” Hoffman wrote. “Can’t play a professional event run by amateurs. The PGA Tour staff is amazing week in and out. Hopefully one day we will separate ourselves.”

Depending on how play goes Saturday morning, Hoffman might have another two rounds to play at the event “run by amateurs.”
