Hoffmann to serve as caddie

Monday, August 10, 2009

How’d you like to have a U.S. Walker Cup team member on your bag? Scott Miller will today as he plays a U.S. Amateur sectional qualifier at The Ridges at Back Brook in Ringoes, N.J. Morgan Hoffmann, who was named to the Walker Cup team just 24 hours earlier, is looping 36 holes in one day for his old Ramapo High School teammate.

Miller, who plays for Mount Union College in Alliance, Ohio, already qualified for this year’s U.S. Amateur Public Links. He shot 80-77 at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club to miss the cut.

Hoffmann is exempt into the U.S. Amateur by virtue of his quarterfinal appearance last year at Pinehurst.
