Morgan Hoffmann (born August 11, 1989) is an American professional golfer.

Raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey, Hoffmann attended Ramapo High School.[1] After winning two consecutive New Jersey state championships, Hoffmann relocated to the International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head, South Carolina to take advantage of the warm-weather and training opportunities.[2]

Hoffmann spent two years attending Oklahoma State University where he played on the golf team. As a highly rated amateur, he held the number one spot in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for a time in 2009, and played in that year's Walker Cup.[3]

After playing in the 2010 U.S. Open, Hoffmann decide to leave college early in order to turn professional. He qualified for his first professional major at the 2012 U.S. Open, finishing in a tie for 29th.

Hoffmann has been a resident of Saddle Brook, New Jersey.[4]

Hoffmann played on the Web.com Tour in 2012, starting the season with no status and getting by on sponsor exemptions and Monday qualifiers. He played in 13 events and finished 19th on the money list, good enough for a promotion to the PGA Tour.
