The Latest on the British Open (all times local):
Charley Hoffman's name on the leaderboard at a major should no longer be a surprise this year.
Hoffman led after the first round of the Masters when he opened with a 65. He was only three shots behind going into the final round of the U.S. Open until he faded on the back nine. Here is again, this time at Royal Birkdale.
Hoffman wasted no time Thursday. From the right rough on the tough opening hole, his shot bounced onto the green and rolled into the cup for an eagle . Hoffman became the fourth player to reach 5 under when he made birdie on the 15th, only to drop a shot on the next hole.
