Tom bounced between the PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour for several years earlier in his career but has established himself on the PGA Tour in recent times.
Two top 5's in 2021 ensured a respectable season in 2021 then 2022 saw Hoge clinch his first PGA Tour tite at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, defeating the likes of Patrick Cantlay and Jordan Spieth on the final day.
Tom lives near Colonial Country Club, so the Charles Schwab Challenge is a home game for him.
Pressure Performance Analysis
Tom has only ever managed to play his best stuff when in serious contention once when he won at Pebble Beach . His Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set to ⭐⭐⭐.
➖ Trailed Scott Piercy by 5 shots and shot 70 to finish 4 shots behind Finau who shot 67.
❌ Started one shot back at the weather affected PLAYERS Championship and shot 76 to finish TEN back of winner Smith. Worst score from all the leaders.
✅ Began the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach sharing the lead and shot 68 to win by two shots. Birdied several of his last six holes and a brilliant finish.
➖ Began 1 shot back from the leaders at the American Express and shot 68 to finish 2 shots back of Swafford who shot 64. A slow start meant he never really had a strong chance of winning.
➖ Began 4 shots behind Gooch at the RSM Classic and shot 67 to finish 7 shots behind.
➖ Began 3 shots behind Rahm and Smith at the Northern Trust. Shot 69 to finish 5 shots behind the leaders.
❌ Two shots off he pace at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Tom could only muster a final round 71 (worst of anyone in top 15) to slip from 2nd to 12th.
❌ Tom was one shot off the pace (2nd) at the Mayakoba Golf Classic with one round to go. Shot a 69, joint 2nd worst score of anyone in the top 15 to slip to 3rd.
➖ Tom held a one shot lead going into the final round at The Sony Open. He did well until the 16th hole when he double bogeyed and then was unable to convert decent birdie chances on 17 and 18 to slip to 3rd.
❌ Tom was 4 shots behind going into the final round at the Shriners Hospital Open but played poorly over the opening dozen holes and put himself out of contention. Ultimately finished with a 69 (3rd worst score in the top 15) to drop to 7th.
At the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship in 2014 Tom was 1 behind going into the final round and shot a 77 (joint worst of anyone in the top 40) to drop to 22nd place. When he won in 2011 on the Canadian Tour he came from 1 shot behind with a round to go to win in 2011 on the Canadian Tour.
Tom is a strong wind player with good results at the Sony Open, Mayakoba, Texas Open and the RSM Classic.
Both Tom's top 5's in 2021 followed poor form, as did his 3rd in 2020. In 2022, his win and 2nd place at the American Express both followed MC's.

Q. You're coming off two great starts, it's really been a good year for you, you had runner-up at The Greenbrier, of course last week 5th, tied for 6th at the American Express. What's kind of turned around for you and how much confidence has that given you?
TOM HOGE: You know it's hard to put a finger on, really, but I would just say I've hit a lot of real quality shots, where in the past you kind of throw a bogey in here and there and lose that momentum, just kept hitting a lot of good shots and I dont want to say it's easy, because it's never easy around Torrey Pines and the Stadium Course at PGA West, but it's been a lot of good, a lot of good golf and the putter's been pretty good too.
Q. You got a veteran caddie, Henry Diana, on your bag, you've had him about a year, how much has Henry helped you get better?
TOM HOGE: Yeah, for sure, and it's the little stuff, how we practice and trying to be a little bit more efficient and just be more professional, I guess you could say.
