WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Add a seventh City Golf Championship trophy to the case at the Hofman household.
Sunday Brent Hofman, a six-time champion, made a familiar walk through the match play final on the Kampen Course at the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex, only this time he wasn't playing. Hofman caddied for his son Nic in the final round. Hofman topped Mike Rivas 4 & 3 for his first title, a round that included an eagle on the eighth hole.
Hofman joins the previous two champions (Ben Mattingly in 2018, and Brent Hofman in 2017), to sweep both the stroke and match play championships.
"For me the biggest thing is the greens. I mean I put really well here, never really get out of sorts. I know where to go. So I mean that definitely helps, but it's also about keeping it in play," said Hofman, who made the round about having fun with his father Brent on the bag.
"I would say I like the stories. He was telling me stories about when he was playing it. So that just kind of kept it off the golf but also kept it fun."
"I just tried to stay out of the way a little bit just gave him a few ideas of where to land the ball on some of the pin placements and just kept him patient," said Brent. "We just had fun."
