Hoffmann sports stupid hat from 'hot chicks'

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Perhaps the silliest moment at the famous par-3 16th hole on Thursday came when Morgan Hoffmann donned an oversized, orange foam cowboy hat to hit his tee shot.

Never mind that it had the Phoenix Suns' logo on it; Hoffmann only saw it as the colors of Oklahoma State, his alma mater.

He received the hat one day earlier after a tough negotiation process.

“On Wednesday, I was on the range and I saw this group of hot chicks and I was like, ‘Where did you get these hats?’” he recalled. “They were like, ‘Oh, we’ll give you one of ours in exchange for balls and gloves.’ So I was like, sure.”

Hoffmann had one of his college roommates carry the hat around all day until he took it from him on 16 and wore it to hit a shot that came up short of the green.

“I thought it was really funny,” he said, “then I whiffed the shot.”

Don’t worry, though, golf fans. We haven’t seen the last of the orange foam cowboy hat.

“I’ll do it again Sunday. I’ll wear orange, too.”
