Hofmann Eliminated

by John Helsley Published: August 22, 2008

The final Cowboy left in the United States Amateur was eliminated Friday.

Oklahoma State freshman Morgan Hoffmann was ousted 4 and 3 in a quarterfinal match with New Zealand’s Danny Lee at the par 70 No. 2 Course at Pinehurst Country Club in Village of Pinehurst, N.C.

OSU senior Trent Leon, sophomores Kevin Tway and Rickie Fowler and freshman Peter Uihlein also qualified for match play. Uihlein eliminated Leon Wednesday. Tway and Fowler were both eliminated Thursday afternoon.

Hoffmann missed his first week of college because of the Amateur, and will be back in Stillwater to attend classes on Monday.

“It was kind of nice,” he said. “It’s a good excuse to miss class. But I’m ready to get back with my teammates.”
