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). Jul 16 - 2:17 PM

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.

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.
