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. Nov 21 - 8:43 AM

Thanks to Morgan Hoffmann's big FedExCup Playoff run at the end of the 2013-14 season, he enters this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open as a marked man.

Hoffmann barely qualified for the FEC Playoffs at 124th at the end of the regular season. He scored his only top top 10s of the season in the Playoffs, tying for ninth at The Barlcays and finishing alone in third at the BMW Championship. Because of that recent history, his stock is soaring entering the new season. He teed it up at TPC Summerlin last year, tying for 43rd. The wise play may to be wait for some sign that his form from August carried through the off season before jumping in too deep.

Morgan Hoffmann began his FedExCup Playoff quest in the 124th position and has improved to 21st just in time for the TOUR Championship.

This represents Hoffmann's first trip to East Lake. Considering he played his last two rounds at Cherry Hills in 15-under-par 62-63=125, he is riding quite a wave of momentum. Since both of his top 10s on the PGA TOUR this season came in the Playoffs, he is an excellent option as a flier in numerous formats.

Morgan Hoffmann fired a 7-under-par 33-30=63 in the final round of the BMW Championship to assume the clubhouse lead at 11-under 269.

This came on the heels of a third-round 62 and gives him the season-low 125 on the PGA TOUR over consecutive rounds. At the time of his posting, he was projected to move from 68th to 22nd in the FedExCup standings. His round featured eight birdies and a 16'5" eagle at the par-5 17th hole, but also included a bogey and a double bogey. The flat stick was on fire. In addition to his lengthy eagle, five of his birdies fell from outside of 11 feet. He moved from 68th to 21st in the FedExCup standings to secure a spot in the field in the TOUR Championship. Scott Piercy was the last golfer to score 125 over consecutive rounds when he closed out the 2013 WM Phoenix Open in 64-61.

Morgan Hoffmann lit up Cherry Hills Country Club for the competitive course record with an 8-under-par 30-32=62 in the third round of the BMW Championship and assumes the early clubhouse lead at 4-under 206.

Hoffmann began his day on the back nine and rattled off birdies on his first three holes. He closed out the back nine with three more birdies in succession before turning his attention towards the front. After picking up birdies on the first and third holes, he needed to play the final six holes in 3-under to post a 59. It wasn't meant to be. Hoffmann bogeyed the par-3 sixth, erased it with a birdie at the par-4 seventh, but drew no more blood. While he split just half of the 14 fairways, the Oklahoma State product landed 14 GIR and gained over three strokes with the flat stick. Three of his birdies were longer than 14 feet, including a putt from off the green on the seventh. It will likely take a similar effort on Sunday if he is to contend for the title. The previous course record of 64 was shared by Doug Tewell (1985 PGA Championship), Sergio Garcia (Friday) and Ryan Palmer (Friday).

Morgan Hoffmann makes his way back to Cherry Hills Country Club for this week's BMW Championship.

Hoffmann is one of the few in the field with course experience at Cherry Hills. He played here as a member of the 2009 U.S. Palmer Cup team. While his team lost that edition to Europe, any experience is better than none. Entering the week at 68th in the FedExCup standings, Hoffmann will need to lean heavily on his course experience as he needs to climb 38 spots in the FEC standings by the end of the week.

Morgan Hoffmann signed for a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of The Barclays to finish safely inside the top 10 at 9-under 275.

The native of New Jersey had the crowd on his side at Ridgewood CC, and he delivered relative to the expectations. Considering he entered the week off a missed cut at the Wyndham Championship and ranked 124th in the FedExCup standings, it's an accomplishment that he has secured a spot in the Deutsche Bank Championship later this week. Of his four birdies, his 36'8" bomb at the par-4 opening hole stood out as the highlight.

Morgan Hoffmann surged into the clubhouse lead during the third round of The Barclays with a bogey-free third-round 5-under-par 32-34=66.

Hoffmann entered the week 124th in the FedExCup standings, but his 7-under 206 tally has him projected to move safely inside the top 100 with 18 holes to play. Should hie complete that task, he would be in the field at the Deutsche Bank Championship next week. His round featured five birdies and 13 pars. Four of his birdies were worthy of applause. He holed a 16'10" birdie at the par-4 sixth, a 33'7" birdie on the par-4 seventh, a chip-in birdie from 41'2" on the par-3 10th and a final 12'10" birdie on the par-5 13th. When it was all said and done, he had gained just shy of three strokes with his flat stick at the time of his posting. A native of New Jersey, he is considered to be a hometown favorite at Ridgewood CC.

Morgan Hoffmann barely squeaked his way into the FedExCup Playoffs and must make a big move at The Barclays to advance.

The PGA TOUR sophomore is 124th in the FedExCup standings, and only the top 100 following this week at Ridgewood CC will advance to the Deutsche Bank Championship. He missed the cut at the Wyndham Championship, placing himself in jeopardy of missing the Playoffs all together. He missed the cut at The Barclays in 2013 at Liberty National Golf Club.

Morgan Hoffmann stands 120th in the FedExCup standings with the RBC Canadian Open up next on his schedule.

The sophomore on the PGA TOUR tied for 52nd in this event last year, but that occurred at Glen Abbey. This season the players will face Royal Montreal GC for the first time since 2001, with the exception of those who competed in the 2007 Presidents Cup. While Hoffmann doesn't need a Herculean effort down the stretch to secure his PGA TOUR card for another season, it would be nice if he could at least make the cut this week and possibly grab a top 25.

Morgan Hoffmann reached the midpoint of the Quicken Loans National in 4-under-par 70-68=138 to establish the very early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at Congressional Country Club's Blue Course this morning. Hitting 12 greens in regulation, Hoffmann collected four birdies, including a walk-off highlight from 32'10" at the par-5 ninth. He has eight birdies through 36 holes, including on each of the three par 5s in both rounds. His only bogey today occurred at the famed, par-4 18th where he found trouble left of the fairway off the tee. The PGA TOUR sophomore hasn't been the steadiest investment by any means, but he's still figuring out how to contend and at which stops suit his game. Clearly, Congressional has risen considerably on the list.

Morgan Hoffmann returns to the Travelers Championship for his third look at TPC River Highlands.

Like many past amateurs, Hoffmann got a sponsor exemption to make his professional debut at TPC River Highlands (2011). He used it well, finishing T43 and improved in 2013 with a share of 9th place. Seven of his eight career rounds here have been in red numbers, so it's safe to say Hoffmann enjoys it here.

Morgan Hoffmann stumbles toward a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in his third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Hoffmann's putter carried him to seven birdies, but two double bogeys put a big dent in his round. He entered the par-4 18th hole with a share of the lead before splashing his tee shot and then finding an awkward lie in the greenside bunker after his recovery attempt, ultimately settling for a double bogey and 8-under 202 for the tournament. Hoffmann is still just two shots back heading into Sunday and showed today that he can make a plethora of birdies here at Las Colinas.

Morgan Hoffmann spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship to post 6-under 134, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

With a career-best T5 at last year's edition and a T17 last week at TPC Sawgrass, the arrows were pointing up for the PGA TOUR sophomore this week. He went 4-for-4 in scrambling today and circled four birdies. The set included conversions from 17'11" at the sixth hole and 15'7" at 13. He buried six birdies in the lid-lifter, but also swallowed four bogeys. Today's 66 matches his third- and fourth-round scores from last year at Las Colinas. It also equals his low round of 2013-14 achieved twice previously.

Morgan Hoffmann is back for a second chance at Quail Hollow Club for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Hoffmann found himself slamming his trunk early last year in his Quail Hollow debut. Given the state of the greens last year, I think many gamers will excuse his -1.947 strokes gained-putting performance and give him another chance.
