HOFFMAN CLAIMS TOP SPOT AFTER SECOND ROUND 70 AT QUAD CITIES

Do scorches course and leads field by 8 strokes

 

 

LONG GROVE, Iowa – Morgan Hoffman of Wykcoff, N.J., was determined to separate himself from the rest of the field -- and did so by firing his second sub-par round in the boys division of the Nike Golf Junior at Quad Cities. His 6-under-par 138 leads by one stroke. 

 Brianna Do of Lakewood, Calif., was the star of day-two in the girls division as she overtook Cheyenne Woods, of Phoenix, Ariz., for the lead.  Do fired her personal and girls division tournament-best with a 4-under-par 68 to lead by eight strokes.

The Nike Golf Junior at Quad Cities is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Glynns Creek Golf Course.  The tournament features 84 of the nation’s premier junior golfers, ages 12-15, from 24 states and Canada.

Hoffman entered the second round in a three-way tie atop the leaderboard, but fired a 2-under-par 70 to put him ahead of Jace Long of Dixon, Mo., who shot a second-round 67.

“I felt like today was a moving day,” Hoffman said.  “I knew if I did well today, I would put myself in a real good position for tomorrow.”

Hoffman opened the round with a bogey on hole No. 2 and a double bogey on No. 6, but bounced back to birdie five of his next seven holes.

“I felt like I had salt in my veins.  I was extremely upset,” Hoffman said.  “I told myself if I wanted to win I had to make some birdies.”

Josh Jones of The Colony, Texas, is in third at 141 and three players are tied for fourth at 142.

After opening the tournament with an even par 72, Do caught fire at Glynns Creek Golf Course and played bogey-free golf.

“I putted really good today,” Do said. “Playing with good competition makes me play better.”

            Do had wanted to skip the tournament to attend her eighth grade graduation, but now has had a change of heart.

“I’m happy to be here now,” said Do. “I just kind of forgot about what was going on.”

Woods and Tia Gannon of Hilton Head Island, S.C. are tied for second at 148.
