When Peter Uihlein won his match against John Hahn late Thursday, he looked at his next opponent and smiled. He'll get Morgan Hoffmann, fellow Oklahoma State University teammate. After his win over Alex Ching, Hoffmann said it's a tough course. "It's one of the longest courses I've ever seen. It's one of the hilliest."
Uihlein, when asked of the matchup, took the high road. "It will be a good day for OSU golf. It will be fun. We've never played head to head. We had a chance in our last U.S. Junior but I think he lost in the round of 16."
The Uihlein-Hoffmann match isn't the only one featuring university teammates. Max Homa will take on defending champion Byeong-Hun An, both of whom attend the University of California, Berkeley.
As an aside, let's hear it for Jed Dirksen. Why? Because he's opted to carry his own bag. He's been offered a caddie, but has refused.
