Morgan Hoffmann Moves on to the Tour Championship

ELMSFORD, N.Y. (September 7, 2014) - Franklin Lakes, N.J. native Morgan Hoffmann started the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs at Ridgewood Country Club for The Barclays ranked 124th in the standings, just inside the top 125 mark. Three events later he finds himself slotted at 21st and he is headed to the TOUR Championship.

At The Barclays, right near his hometown, he tied for 9th and shot up the standings from 124th to 72nd. All he needed at the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Ma. the following week was a tied for 35th finish, which snuck him in the top 70 and advanced him into the BMW Championship this week at Cherry Hills Country Club in Colorado. At 68th in the standings, Hoffmann would need to tie for third or better to come in the top 30 and advance to the final leg of the playoffs, the TOUR Championship at East Lake in Atlanta, Ga.

It seemed like a difficult task, especially after shooting a pair of 2-over 72s in his first two rounds. Not only would he bounce back, but he did it in a big way. He carded a stunning 8-under 62 on Saturday putting him at 4-under total, still a ways back from the top three on the leaderboard. On Sunday he would follow it up with a 7-under 68 for a four day total of 11-under 269 and a solo third place finish. What started as a tough third leg of the playoffs ended in triump for Hoffmann and he now stands at 21st heading into East Lake next week for the TOUR Championship.

Not only will he play at East Lake, but Hoffmann has also now earned a spot in the 2015 Masters, U.S. Open, and British Open Championships. The 2005 Carter Cup Champion is making quite a name for himself on the PGA Tour and will certainly have a ton of Met Area fans rooting him on in Georgia next week.
