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. Feb 26 - 6:38 PM

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 394 Morgan Hoffmann rallied for a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in today's second round of The Honda Classic to reach halftime on 5-under 135, up 17 places to T7 with play still in progress.

The Jupiter, Florida, resident kicked off his fourth appearance with a four-birdie two-bogey 68, the first sub-par lap he's posted in R1 at PGA National. Significantly better than his previous first-round efforts that averaged 75.33. The 27-year-old undid all his good work with triple bogey-7 at the 11th, where he took three swats out of the water (from 33'5" away) to reach the surface. Past that however, he closed out his first half with back-to-back birdies at 12 and 13 (from 12'2"), and turned even with birdie-4 at 18. The New Jersey native outpaced bogey-5 at six with circles at 2, 3, 5 and 8 the rest of the way.

Morgan Hoffmann styled a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-35=67 during round two of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, climbing 16 spots to T11 on the leaderboard at 6-under 136.

Hoffmann is making his fourth straight appearance at this event, posting progressively worse finishes each year after a T15 debut in 2014. He's reversing that trend this week, using great iron play as his weapon. Through two days, Hoffmann has landed 28 greens in regulation, gaining 3.434 strokes approaching-the-green (7th in the field). The highlight of today's round came early at the par-5 third hole where the Oklahoma State product dunked a 79-yard approach for eagle. Hoffmann arrived in a bit of a funk, finishing T50 or worse in each of his last eight starts. It looks like that slump is coming to an end this week.

Morgan Hoffmann makes the OHL Classic at Mayakoba his fourth start of the season.

In his fourth season, the 27-year-old finished 133rd in FedExCup points last year but maintained his card at 125th on the money list. His season ended with a missed cut at the Wyndham, missing the Playoffs for a first time, and preceded the Wyndham with his only top top 10 in 25 starts, a T3 at the John Deere. The New Jersey native, who resides in Jupiter, Florida, is 1-for-3 to begin 2016-17, missing the cut last week at the Shriners and the opposite-field Sanderson Farms, and kicking off with T50 at the Safeway Open. He's making just his second visit to Mexico after T49 in 2014 (69-71-72-67).

Morgan Hoffmann stalled out to an even-par 34-37=71 in today's final round of the John Deere Classic to post 17-under 267, down one spot into a two-way T3, five in arrears to champion Ryan Moore.

In his 108th career start, the 26-year-old posts his second third-place finish, joining solo third at the 2014 BMW Championship. It's his FIRST top 10 of the season in 24 starts however, clawing 29 places to 131st in the FedExCup standings with just one event remaining before the start of the FEC Playoffs. The New Jersey native is in the published field at this coming week's Wyndham. He began R4 in a two-way T2 on 17-under, one back of Moore, who shot 67. Hoffmann mustered seven (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.929 putts per GIR and a dismal -3.602 SG: Putting. He outpaced bogeys on 6 and 7 with birdies on 2, 5 and 8 to turn 1-under, but came home in birdie-less 1-over with bogey-4 at the 12th. Hoffman missed five putts from inside of nine feet, including birdie tries at 17 and 18.

Morgan Hoffmann set TPC Deere Run ablaze with a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-30=62 during the third round of the John Deere Classic, reaching 17-under 196 to sit one stroke off the pacesetter Ryan Moore.

The Oklahoma State product entered the week ranked 160th in the FedExCup standings, in need of a big finish in order to make a Playoff push and help retain TOUR status. Today's round certainly helps that cause, circling nine birdies, including a six-hole birdie train which began at the par-4 11th with a 16'3" splash. The train itself featured 81'3" worth of putts drained. Hoffmann gained 5.085 strokes putting on the round. This round goes in the books as his low for the season and also matches his career low, previously posted at 2014 BMW Championship. He finished in third place that week. Surprisingly, it only matches the low round of the day, as Ben Martin posted the same score (and also the same aggregate). On the week, Hoffmann has carded just one bogey, and will enter the finale just one stroke off the lead with a good opportunity to pick up his maiden PGA TOUR win.

Morgan Hoffmann fashioned a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the John Deere Classic to reach the midpoint on 8-under 134, currently T4 on the leaderboard, up eight spots on the round.

The now 27-year-old celebrated his birthday yesterday (Aug. 11th) and opened his fourth appearance with a five-birdie one-bogey 67 on 16 greens in regulation. He played 14 of those holes on Thursday and returned Friday morning to play his final four holes with three pars and a walk-off bogey-5 on the ninth. The New Jersey native mustered a pair of birdies in R2 on 13 GIR, each from inside of seven feet, and added eagle-3 at the second from 18'10".

Morgan Hoffmann heads to Dublin, Ohio, for his third appearance at this week's Memorial.

The Oklahoma State product has signed for three (of four) rounds of 75 or worse here at Muirfield Village Golf Club. His recent form is nothing to write home about, either, as he's finished outside the top 40 in 11 of his last 12 starts. His short game has been the biggest reason for the decline, as his strokes gained around-the-green has dropped from 13th to 115th, year-over-year. Muirfield Village is not a venue you want to play when your short game has gone missing, so gamers should probably look elsewhere this week.

Morgan Hoffmann carded a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round of the RBC Heritage for a two-day tally of 3-under 139, up 17 places on the live leaderboard to T8.

In his last start at the Houston Open, Hoffmann chased 65 with 80 and a missed cut, his fourth straight. He fared significantly better in the second round this week at Harbour Town, following a five-birdie four-bogey 70 with today's five-birdie one-bogey one-double 69. The 26-year-old, T9 here last year in his second appearance, went off No. 10 tee and outpaced bogey-5 at 12 with birdies on 10 and a chip-in 4 at the par-5 15th to turn 1-under. After the break, he sandwiched double bogey-6 at three with circles on Nos. 2, 4 and 5. Hoffmann found just six (of 14) fairways and only nine greens in regulation, but gained 1.964 in strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card.

Morgan Hoffmann ballooned to an 8-over-par 44-36=80 in the second round of the Shell Houston Open to post 1-over 145, down 98 spots on the live leaderboard to T100.

Hoffmann began his second round in a four-way T2 after opening in 7-under 65, just one shy of 18-hole leader Charley Hoffman. He went off No. 10 and exchanged two birdies with two bogeys to turn even. The 26-year-old wrote down three pars on holes 1-3 and was in the front greenside bunker in two on the par-5 fourth but took four swings to get in for bogey-6. It all went haywire from there, playing his next four holes in double-triple-bogey-bogey. In total, the former OSU Cowboy lost eight strokes on those five holes and came home in birdie-less 8-over 44. His 80 is a season worst in 34 rounds, previously 76 in R1/Arnold Palmer Invitational, and matched a career worst in 298 rounds as a pro, shot in R1 of the 2015 Honda Classic.

Morgan Hoffmann opened this week's Shell Houston Open with a 7-under-par 32-33=65 to share a piece of second place after day one.

The Oklahoma State product fired 73-76 in his first (and only) appearance at the Shell Houston Open (2014). His current form wasn't inspiring, either, as he'd finished outside the top 60 in his last seven starts entering the week. He ignored all of those signals on his way to seven birdies and an eagle, offset by just two bogeys. The highlight of the round was a 76-yard hole out from the fairway on the par-5 fourth hole, leading to an eagle the unconventional route. His performance with the putter certainly helped as he sank three putts from outside 10 feet and walked off the course having gained 3.217 strokes with the flat stick. All signs point to a large regression from here on out, but all signs would have never pointed to a 7-under opening round, either.

Morgan Hoffmann heads back to Bay Hill Club and Lodge for a third appearance at this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Oklahoma State product finished in fourth place here last year, signing four round in red numbers. That was a follow-up on his T35 debut that came the year prior. It wasn't his first look at Bay Hill, though, as he got some course time in the 2006 HP Boys Junior Championship conducted by the AJGA, finished T34 in that event. On the down side, Hoffmann hasn't posted a top-60 finish since the Sony Open in January. This could be a week where course history prevails and we see this talented youngster rebound from his current slump.

Morgan Hoffmann rebounded with a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of The Honda Classic to reach the halfway point at even-par 140, up 80 spots on the live leaderboard to T26.

Hoffmann is making his third Honda appearance with the prior two (2014/2015) resulting in a MC (71-70) and a WD following a first-round 80 last year. He kicked off with 5-over 75 on day one (two birdies, three bogeys and two doubles), but responded with seven circles against two squares in round two. The 26-year-old improved to 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation and a tidy 1.538 putts per GIR. He started on the back nine and stuck his approach on the par-4 11th to 15 inches and circled back-to-backs from 14'6" for birdie-3 at 12. The Jupiter, Florida, resident exchanged bogey at the par-3 15th (failed sand save) with a two-putt birdie-4 at 18 to turn 2-under. His one-putt par at the first from 19'2" propelled him to birdies at two (from 15'1") and an up-and-down 4 at the par-5 third, and later erased bogey-4 at the seventh (failed sand save) with a 33-footer at six and a walk-off 3 at the par-4 ninth.

Morgan Hoffmann heads home in preparation for this week's Honda Classic.

The Jupiter, Florida, resident will have local knowledge on his side this week, but that hasn't helped him so far in his Honda career. He missed the cut in his 2014 debut and fired an opening-round 10-over 80 last year before he withdrew. The Oklahoma State product enters with a pair of top 15s on the season, but also five finishes outside the top 45. Gamers should look for an improvement at PGA National's Champion Course, but should keep their expectations tempered.

Overnight co-leader Morgan Hoffmann carved out a 2-under-par 35-33=68 on day two of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

After a 63 in R1, Hoffmann co-lead with four others on 7-under. He swallowed a disastrous triple bogey-7 on his second hole in round two, but to his credit, played his final 16 holes in bogey-free 5-under. Yet, the damage was done and his two-day total of 9-under 131 saw him drop three back of 36-hole leader Brandt Snedeker and into a five-way tie for seventh place. The 26-year-old, who's never finished better than T51 in three previous visits to Honolulu, circled three the convention way, including an eagle at the par-5 ninth from 12'6", and also added a chip-in birdie-3 at the par-4 sixth. Despite, the come back, he ended the round with a disappointing -1.884 in strokes gained: putting.
