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.
