Morgan Hoffmann twirled a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to reach the midpoint in 10-under 134, one stroke off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.
He's in some kind of groove right now. Hoffmann went 6-for-6 in scrambling and buried six birdies, including in all four par 5s. His notable conversions ranged 11'4" at the par-3 17th hole and from the fringe four yards away at the par-5 second. This makes seven consecutive red number dating back to a closing 70 in his Masters' debut. Expect him to remain a force this weekend. Apr 25 - 9:40 AM

Morgan Hoffmann submitted a 4-under-par 32-36=68 for his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

To steal a phrase from baseball parlance, the 25-year-old has been dealing lately. After a solo fourth at Bay Hill, he tied for 28th in his Masters' debut, and then shared ninth at Harbour Town with four rounds in the 60s. Today at TPC Louisiana, Hoffmann went 6-for-14 in scoring chances with six birdies, a pair of which dropping in from 12-14 feet. He signed his card sitting four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Morgan Hoffmann carded a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in today's final round of the RBC Heritage and posted 11-under 273, good for a share of ninth.

Hoffmann entered the week ranked 150th on TOUR in scrambling but it was his short game display in the final round that secured him his second top-10 finish in his last three starts. The 25-year-old managed to find just 10 greens in regulation but converting four into birdies (ranging from 1'9" to 12'2" on the par-3 seventh). But it was his short game that was the story going 7-for-8 in scrambling with his only dropped shot coming on the par-4 third.

Morgan Hoffmann chased his opening 68 at the RBC Heritage with another in today's second round to post 6-under 136, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Hoffmann went out in the second threesome off the first tee at Harbour Town Golf Links this morning. When he finished, he didn't sit on top of the leaderboard, so this is just a passing achievement, as it were. He hit the ground running with birdies on his first three holes. That spurt was capped by a 20-yard hole-out from the rough to the right of the green at the par-4 third.

Morgan Hoffmann spun a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage.

Fresh off a T28 in his Masters' debut that a season-best solo fourth at Bay Hill, it's clear that the 25-year-old is settling in. He mounted 14 greens in regulation on the small targets today; that ranked second in the field when he walked off. While he squared two bogeys coming in, Hoffmann converted five birdies, including a pair ranging 10-14 feet. He signed his card sitting just one off the clubhouse lead.

Morgan Hoffmann is in the published field at the RBC Heritage and enters the week 82nd in the FedExCup rankings.

Hoffmann, fresh off his T28 in his first Masters, makes his second visit to HHI having missed the cut in 2013. He's 7-for-11 on the season with three top 25s, most notably a solo fourth at API where he led after 36 holes. However, considering the track this week, Hoffmann's stats do not look favorable with rankings of 203rd in driving accuracy and 196th in greens in regulation.
Apr 15 - 7:08 PM

Morgan Hoffmann carded a 1-under-par 32-39=71 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to finish alone in fourth at 15-under 273.

Hoffmann simply ran out of gas. He appeared to be the man to beat early in his round, as he circled five birdies on his first eight holes at Bay Hill. The wheels wobbled with a bogey on the par-4 ninth and started to fall off the train with bogeys at 12 and 13. Following a birdie at the par-5 16th, he found himself with a chance to win. Instead, he retreated with a double bogey at the par-4 18th after hitting his drive out of bounds. Proximity was the key to his early success, as his longest birdie was a 13'5" effort on the par-4 first hole.
Mar 22 - 6:09 PM

Morgan Hoffmann rallied for a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is alone in second at 14-under 202.

The 36-hole leader trails Henrik Stenson by two strokes. Hoffmann looked shaky early, opening with seven pars at Bay Hill before squaring bogeys at the eighth and ninth holes. An 18'1" birdie on the par-4 10th stopped the bleeding, and he was off and running with a 13'7" birdie at the par-5 12th. He added a final birdie from close range on the very next hole. He is trying to win on TOUR for the first time, so some nerves were expected. That is is still a major part of the picture bodes well for how he handled himself and his chances to win tomorrow.
Mar 21 - 5:58 PM

Overnight leader Morgan Hoffmann added a 7-under-par 31-34=65 in today's second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 13-under 131, good for comfortable possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: He holds a three-stroke lead at the midpoint.

Hoffmann went out in the first threesome off the first tee at Bay Hill this morning, so when he reached the finish line, he held a four-stroke margin over the rest of the field. He opened with a bogey-5 at the first hole and squared another 5 at No. 15, but he connected for nine birdies elsewhere, including on all four par 5s. His longest birdie found the cup from just off the green and eight yards away at the par-4 fifth. His only notable, conventional birdie rolled 14'1" at the par-4 eighth. Hoffmann was informed shortly before his tee time on Thursday that his maternal grandmother had died. The services are on Saturday in south Florida, so he may fly himself there from Orlando if it makes sense from a scheduling standpoint. Given his current position on the leaderboard, he'll have one of, if not the last tee time in the third round.
Mar 20 - 11:55 AM

Morgan Hoffmann stole outright possession of the clubhouse lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round.

He went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee in today's late draw and pounced on scorable conditions at Bay Hill. Hoffmann opened with a birdie from 33'3" at the par-4 10th to set the tone. He added birdies at 12 and 4 before holing out for eagle from a bunker 16 yards away at the par-5 sixth. Tied atop the leaderboard as he stood over his second from 152 yards at the par-4 ninth, he laced his approach to eight inches for the gimme birdie. Overall,. Hoffmann missed only two (of 14) fairways and four greens in regulation. At last check, he ranked second in strokes gained: tee-to-green for the round with a clip of 5.267.
Mar 19 - 4:41 PM

Morgan Hoffmann withdrew from The Honda Classic prior to his second round.

Hoffmann opened with a tournament-high, 10-over-par 40-40=80. With play suspended due to lightning at the moment, and because he's in today's late draw, he'd likely only be prolonging an inevitable missed cut. This is his second mid-tournament WD in 65 career PGA TOUR starts. It drops him to 4-for-7 on the season. Hoffmann entered the week slotted 151st in the FedExCup standings, so he's failed to shiff the form that yielded a berth in the TOUR Championship in 2014.
Feb 27 - 12:03 PM

Morgan Hoffmann posted a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open, finishing three strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

In a big need for a spark, Hoffmann may have found it on the back nine of Riviera Country Club today. After making the turn in 1-over, he holed a par save from 10'8" at the par-4 10th where walking away with a 4 is just fine in every round. He then buried a five-yarder for birdie from the fringe at 13. Again from off the green, the 24-year-old converted from six yards at No. 15, only time time for par. After a textbook birdie at the par-5 17th, he walked off with a beautiful birdie roll from 34'2" at the par-4 18th. It was a gutty effort overall given he split only six (of 14) fairways and totaled 11 greens in regulation.
Feb 19 - 7:29 PM

Morgan Hoffmann spun a 4-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and reaches the half-way point at 3-under 139.

Hoffmann began his day on the 10th tee at TPC Scottsdale and circled four birdies on the back nine. Highlights included a 15'2" birdie on the par-3 12th and a 16'3" birdie on the difficult par-4 14th holes. His front nine included seven pars to go with a birdie and a bogey. With rain and cool temperatures a constant on Friday, his round will likely stand up as one of the better of the day.
Jan 30 - 2:12 PM

Morgan Hoffmann begins his week at the Sony Open ranked 194th in the FedExCup standings.

Hoffmann was riding high into the 2014-15 season after a strong finish in the 2013-14 FedExCup Playoffs, but has cooled considerably with a missed cut in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and a T61 in the CIMB Classic. While he has made the cut in each of his first two trips to Waialae Country Club, he has yet to crack the top 65. Perhaps he will find some form this week that will serve him well on the remainder of the West Coast Swing.
Jan 13 - 3:01 PM

Morgan Hoffmann is off to a slow start in 2014-15 after an exhausting breakout campaign last year.

Hoffmann posted eight top 25s last season, playing a whopping 32 total events, ultimately finishing 26th in the final FedExCup standings after a pair of timely top 10s in the Playoffs. The hangover was easy to notice during the Fall Series as he missed the cut at the Shriners, and then followed that up with a share of 61st place (of 77) at the CIMB Classic. A little rest could do him good, as the sky is still the limit for the talent 25-year old from New Jersey. At the same time, he's on the record for planning to reduce his schedule to 20-25 starts this season, but the less-is-more theory may not translate into our world.
