Hi, Team Titleist.

We wanted to share an emotional story with you. Titleist Brand Ambassador Morgan Hoffmann contributed an article to The Players’ Tribune this morning in which he announced that a little over a year ago he was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.

As you’ll read in his article, Morgan is facing this incurable disease with frankness, courage and hope. He nearly captured his first PGA Tour title at the 2017 Honda Classic (he finished T2 behind his former Oklahoma State teammate Rickie Fowler) and he's confident that a breakout win is just around the corner.

But as he confronts this challenge, Morgan’s focus is extending far beyond himself. He’s thinking of the children who will be diagnosed in the future and he's seeing this bad break as an opportunity to raise awareness about muscular dystrophy. In the future you’ll be hearing a lot from the soft-spoken 28-year-old as he embraces his role as a leading force to find a cure.  

We’ve had the pleasure of spending time with Morgan, most recently back in late August, when he joined us for a tour of the Titleist Ball Plant 3 facility. As Team Titleist members Brian Donahue (far left in the photo above), Chris Hatem (left/center) and Rich Thurber (far right) will attest, you’ll never meet a warmer, more approachable and more likeable person anywhere. He’s truly someone you can feel good about rooting for, and we hope you’ll join us in doing just that.  

Please respond to this thread and send along your thoughts and well-wishes to Morgan.  We’ll make sure he sees your comments and knows that everyone at Team Titleist is behind him.

    Hi Morgan, Thank you so much for sharing your story. It makes us realize how precious life is and how we need to celebrate all the good stuff instead of taking it for granted. I know you will make a difference in this fight against MD and we will be rooting for you every step of the way.

    Thank you for posting. Truly shocked but at the same time very encouraged when I see people like Morgan using their position in a positive way - to further the effort and raise awareness in the quest to find a cure. In the very short time we got to chat with Morgan during the BP3 tour, he was everything you said and more.

    Best of luck with your fight and thank you for leading the fight for others.

    What great attitude in this situation. I'll make sure to remember to smile anytime I say golf isn't fair. It's just a game. A bad day on the course beats....about anything else. Here's to Morgan hitting all the goals he sets.
