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. Apr 15 - 2:47 PM

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.

Morgan Hoffmann took control of Waialae Country Club to post a 7-under-par 30-33=63 in the first round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Gamers were throwing clubs after one hole as Hoffmann started with a bogey on the par-4 10th hole. It wasn't until the par-4 14th that the Oklahoma State Cowboy lassoed in his first birdie. He added a couple more before making the turn and really heating up on the front-nine. Hoffmann trickled in back-to-back birdies on the par-4 third and fourth, the former coming from 19'9". He saved the biggest bang for last as he drilled a 26'2" eagle on the par-5 9th hole to walk off the course with a share of lead.

Morgan Hoffmann has begun his fourth season on TOUR and has made the Playoffs in each of his first three.

Hoffmann was 9-under (T12) after 36 holes at the 78-man no-cut CIMB Classic but faded to T47 after playing the weekend 2-over (74-72). The week prior, he co-lead (with three others) after 36 holes at the Shriners and was solo second thru 54 holes, but faded to T11 with even-par 71 in the finale. The 26-year-old back-tracked in his latest start, missing the cut by five at The RSM Classic on rounds of 71-74.

Morgan Hoffmann added a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the CIMB Classic, posting 9-under 135 at the midpoint, five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit only 12 greens in regulation today but found six birdies just as he did on Thursday, but Hoffmann doubled his bogey count to two. The red numbers are so rampant that even with the 12 birdies, he's barely inside the top 10 in total birdies with golfers still finishing the second round in a field of only 78.

Four days after closing the Shriners with a pedestrian 71, Morgan Hoffmann fashioned a 5-under-par 36-31=67 in today's opening round of the CIMB Classic.

The 26-year-old went out in the final pairing in Vegas on Sunday but settled for a share of 11th place. He was one of four co-leaders at the midpoint, so he was building to a breakthrough. It didn't happen, but the beauty is that he can right back at it this week, albeit 15 hours ahead on the clock in Malaysia. Hoffmann hit 14 greens in regulation but sat birdie-free 1-over after eight holes. Finally, a birdie-4 at the 18th sparked a run of six against no bogeys coming in. He's five strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Overnight co-leader Morgan Hoffmann tossed up a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in today's third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach the three-quarter pole at 12-under 201, one stroke back of leader Brett Stegmaier.

Hoffmann's two-putt bogey at the 18th secured his spot in the final pairing on Sunday with Stegmaier. He'll be looking for his first PGA TOUR title in his 84th career start as a pro. Hoffmann began the day in a four-way tie for the lead at 10-under after opening in twin 66s. On his round, he found just six (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation for a second consecutive day, but put up a blistering 3.616 in strokes gained: putting. This chased a 4.500 in SGP in round two and puts him first in the field thru 54 holes with a cumulative 8.261. Following six-birdie efforts in rounds one and two, the 26-year-old circled four today. Sleepwalking thru his first 12 holes at 1-over, Hoffmann broke the ice with birdie from 15'2" at the par-5 13th and chased with three straight on Nos. 15-17, including a 12'10" roll on the par-3 17th. He closed with the aforementioned bogey at the last, a two-putt from 70'6", including a 10-footer for the bogey-5.

Morgan Hoffmann logged another 5-under-par 66 in today's second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to earn a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 10-under 132.

He turned in a pair of 33 for his nines today. Each feature three birdies, the longest stretching 13'9" and 18'4" at the par-4 10th and seventh holes, respectively. he went 4-for-5 in scrambling with one bogey. At last check, the 26-year-old ranked fourth in the field with an aggregate strokes gained: putting clip of 4.620. He'll enter the weekend with his latest opportunity to convert on his first PGA TOUR title.

Morgan Hoffmann turned in a 5-under-par 32-34=66 for his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The 26-year-old is already in his fourth season on the PGA TOUR on which he's deposited $3.7 million. It's just a matter of time before he wins -- he's still in pursuit of a trophy after 83 starts as a pro -- so perhaps it's as soon as this week. He went 6-for-15 in scoring chances with six birdies. The set featured rolls from 34'7" and 23'6" at the par-4 first and third holes, respectively. He also coaxed in a birdie from 10'3" at the par-5 ninth. However, despite going perfect in scrambling, he squared a three-putt bogey from 25'2" at the par-3 fifth hole. Hoffmann signed his card positioned two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Morgan Hoffmann heads back to this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, for a third look at TPC Summerlin.

Hoffmann is just 3-for-6 in converting TPC Summerlin rounds to red numbers. That won't do the trick this week, given this event's nature to turn into a shootout. Anything less than 10-under on the week will be considered a disappointment. Hoffmann should still be classified in the waiting to breakout category, but this course doesn't seem to tickle his fancy. Gamers can take a chance and hope the third time is the charm, but it's much safer to wait for better weeks to invest in the Oklahoma State product.
