Morgan Hoffmann steadied a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during his opening round of The Honda Classic, giving him the title of early leader in the clubhouse with plenty of play still in progress.

Playing in blustery conditions, scoring has been tough this morning at PGA National (field average of +2.87 RTP at the moment). Hoffmann clipped that mark by 5.87 strokes as he traded four birdies with one bogey, leaning heavily on the flat stick. He sank a 16'1" par-saver early at the par-4 12th and later added three birdie conversions from outside 13 feet. Hoffmann walked off the course gaining 2.242 strokes putting. Spending his college days at Oklahoma State and now residing locally here in Florida, Hoffmann is used to these windy conditions. He arrived on the heels of six straight missed cuts but a return to a familiar venue (runner-up last year) has lit a fire early in the week.

One of 15 players stranded during the second round of the Genesis Open on Friday did not return on Saturday morning to complete their respective rounds.

At press time, Morgan Hoffmann is the only player who did not return after Friday's second round was suspended due to darkness. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he was 4-over thru 17 holes, 5-over total. With just one hole remaining and three short of the projected cut (2-over 144), the 28-year-old chose to call it a day. This is his third mid-tourney WD in 146 career events, first since the 2015 Honda Classic following a first-round 80. There is no current information indicating that the Jupiter, Florida, resident's WD was due to injury, though he did reveal back in November that he is battling muscular dystrophy. The Oklahoma State product is in the published field at next week's Honda, where the defending champion is fellow Cowboy Rickie Fowler, and Hoffmann finished a still-career-best T2.

World No. 210 Morgan Hoffmann is at Riviera Country Club for his fifth straight Genesis Open and arrives at 132nd in the FedExCup standings.

The 28-year-old is 2-for-4 at the par-71 layout with a T68/2016 and T22/2015 sandwiched by missed cuts in 2014 and 2017. His scoring average in 12 rounds is 72.42 with four red numbers and a best of 66 in 2015/R3. The Oklahoma State product is 2-for-7 on the season with a pair of T23s at the CIMB Classic and CJ CUP back in October, both no-cut events, and checks in off five consecutive missed cuts. In November, 2017, he revealed in an article written for The Players' Tribune that he is battling muscular dystrophy since first noticing it in 2011 and will continue to do so.

Morgan Hoffmann revealed his ongoing battle with muscular dystrophy in a recent article written for The Players' Tribune.

The Oklahoma State product was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy in November of 2016 and he revealed the disease is currently causing atrophy in his right and left pectoral muscles. The full article is a must read on The Players' Tribune as it gives a behind-the-scenes look into how Hoffmann was raised, how he has taken a joy in giving back, and how he is dealing with this serious disease. The 28-year-old has been playing through this since he first noticed it in 2011 and will continue to do so. He even went as far as saying, "This disease won’t keep me from achieving my dream of winning on the PGA Tour."

Morgan Hoffmann breezed through Glen Abbey Golf Club, walking away with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 by day's end, giving him a spot inside the top 10 as he enters the weekend on 9-under 135.

Hoffmann landed 15 greens in regulation in round two, giving him 28 GIR on the week to rank T9 in GIR percentage. It's been steady ball-striking as he also ranks 1st in strokes gained approach-the-green. The highlight of that ball-striking today came at the par-4 16th where he stuck his 216-yard approach to just 5'1" for a relatively easy eagle splash. Hoffmann would give both of those strokes back on the following hole when he found trouble in a fairway bunker off the tee. Luckily, he had picked up six birdies before that late eagle-double exchange. Hoffmann recorded a T12 in his latest start (John Deere Classic) and now sits in a similar position heading into the weekend here at Glen Abbey.

World No. 162 Morgan Hoffmann styled a 7-under-par 30-34=64 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to conclude on 13-under 271, up 50 places on the live leaderboard to T7 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Hoffmann finished T12 and his 64 was tied for the low round with Steve Stricker and Wesley Bryan.

This was the 27-year-old's fifth Deere, third cash and third top 25. His best is T3 last year where he was T2 thru 54 holes (67-67-62), before dropping back with even-par 71. After opening in 72-67-68, the New Jersey native began T57 on 6-under, five shy of the overnight top 10. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.718 strokes tee-to-green and 2.622 SG: Putting. The Oklahoma State product squared bogey-5s at Nos. 6 and 18 (3-putt from 65'2"), offset by seven birdies and a hole-out eagle-2 at 4 from 119 yards away. He posted a tidy 1.500 putts per GIR and just 25 total putts. This is Hoffmann's fifth top 25 of the season in 25 starts and possibly a second top 10 (T2, Honda Classic).

Morgan Hoffmann put on a stripe show en route to a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in round two of the AT&T Byron Nelson, reaching 5-under 135 after 36 holes at TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas.

The Oklahoma State product was curshing the ball today in the Texas heat, popping 10 drives over 300 yards, gaining 2.117 strokes off-the-tee. One of those massive drives came at the par-5 seventh where he poked it 349 yards and then stuck his 193-yard approach to 9'3" to setup an eagle splash. That was his first circle of the day but he would later add three birdies to offset a lone bogey. Hoffmann is no stranger to success at this venue, as this goes in the books as his fourth round of 66 (12 total rounds played). He will look to add a third top 20 to his Byron Nelson resume, this weekend.

Morgan Hoffmann steadied a 1-under-par 34-37=71 during round two of the Wells Fargo Championship, climbing to 3-under 141 on the week, good for T12 on the live leaderbaord with a chance to improve by round's end given the blustery conditions.

After a three-hour weather delay, Hoffmann took to Eagle Point Golf Club and started his day with a par-saver from 6'3" at the par-3 10th. It was a grind to open the round, swallowing bogeys at 14 and 16 while also needing a six-footer to save par in between. The scoring finally started when Hoffmann trickled home a 25'6" birdie bomb at the par-5 18th. He would add more circles on his inward nine, without any more bogeys being added. The Oklahoma State product walked off the course gaining 2.341 strokes over the field. Given the tough scoring conditions, there is decent chance he sneaks into the top 10 by the end of round two.

Playing alternate shot in Round 3 of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Morgan Hoffmann and Camilo Villegas crafted a 1-under-par 36-35=71 and will begin the final round T8 on 11-under 205.

After opening in 72 (alternate shot) and bogey-free 62 (best ball), the team circled four birdies against three squares, climbing six spots on the day. They're a distant eight adrift of 54-hole leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith however, and will play out of the fifth-to-last group off No. 1 tee on Sunday. The tandem went out in even-par, offsetting bogeys at Nos. 3 and 6 (failed scrambles) with birdies at 2 and 8. Villegas got them on the board first, dropping a 15-footer for birdie-4 at the second, while Hoffmann added birdie-3 at eight from 6'10". It was Hoffmann again for birdie at the par-5 11th (from 6'11") with Villegas adding a walk-off 4 at 18 from 5'5". In between, they squared a third bogey at the 12th, also on a failed scramble.

Morgan Hoffmann and Camilo Villegas authored a bogey-free 10-under-par 31-31=62 in today's second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to reach halftime on 10-under 134, up 35 spots to T9 with play still in progress.

The pair mustered an even-par 72 on Day 1 in alternate shot, cancelling out four birdies with two bogey-4s and double bogey-7 on the 18th as they made the turn. They rebounded in the better-ball format on Friday, particularly Villegas, who accounted for six (of 10) birdies, three on each side. Hoffmann got them off to the start they needed, kicking in a 30-incher at the par-4 first after stiffing his approach from 103 yards away, and saved par at the sixth while Villegas put his tee ball in the drink. Hoffmann also circled holes 7, 10 and 18, each dropping from between six and 17 feet. Villegas birdied 2, 8, 9, 11, 13 and 15, each from between five and 20 feet with a long of 19'6" at the par-3 ninth.

Morgan Hoffmann returns to his old stomping grounds in anticipation of this week's RBC Heritage in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

During his high school days, Hoffmann attended the International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head so he's very comfortable in the area this week. That local knowledge has translated nicely to the RBC Heritage so far, collecting a T9 in 2015 and T23 in 2016 (missed cut in 2013 debut). More recently the Oklahoma State product has earned a paycheck in three of his last four starts leading up to this week, including a career-best, runner-up finish at the Honda Classic. The 27-year-old who once reached No.1 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings is still searching for consistency on the PGA TOUR but he's proven he can string together four solid rounds when his game is clicking (9 top 10s in 123 career PGA TOUR starts). With local knowledge on his side, gamers should consider Hoffmann a very lively boom-or-bust sleeper this week at Harbour Town Golf Links.

World No. 394 Morgan Hoffmann styled a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in today's final round of The Honda Classic for a 72-hole tally of 8-under 272, up six places to a career-best T2, four back of champion and fellow Oklahoma State product Rickie Fowler.

This was the Jupiter, Florida, resident's 120th career start (119 pro) and supplants a pair of third-place finishes (T3, 2016 John Deere Classic; 3rd, 2014 BMW Championship). It's his fifth cash in 11 starts on the season, first inside the top 50 (T50, Sanderson Farms), and his first finish in the top 60 at PGA National after a T61 last year (75-65-72-75). After opening in 68-67-69, the 27-year-old began in a 12-way logjam on 6-under (T8), seven shy of 54-hole leader Fowler. He found seven (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, erasing a lone bogey-5 at six (failed scramble) with two conventional birdies at 11 and 12, from 24'5" and 35'6", respectively, adding a 42-yard hole out for birdie-3 at eight. For the week, the New Jersey native carded 18 birdies versus five bogeys, one double and one triple, and was the ONLY player to put all four in the 60s.
