Morgan’s Story

Growing up in New Jersey, young Morgan was a multi-sport athlete with a passion for ice hockey, baseball, and golf. As high school approached, he chose to pursue golf full time with the dream of  being one of the world’s best. Fast forward a few years, and Morgan had earned a full-ride golf scholarship to Oklahoma State University, 3 NCAA All American Awards, 2 Academic All American Achievements and the World’s Number 1 Ranking in Amateur Golf. The reality of being one of the world’s best golfers was now in his sights, so Morgan turned pro and through 11 events on the Web.Com Tour earned his PGA Tour Card .

At the same time, Morgan noticed his right pectoral muscle had started to atrophy. For the next 5 years he competed amongst the world’s best on the PGA Tour, but also battled with the uncertainty of his health. Despite living an active and disciplined lifestyle, Morgan left over 25 doctors across the country dumbfounded, without any answers or insight into his condition. Then, after visiting a neurologist in New York City, Morgan was finally diagnosed a few months later with fascioscapularhumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) through a genetic blood test.

In late 2016, Morgan accepted the many challenges of overcoming MD, an incurable disease, and developed a new appreciation for giving back and helping others.  To this day, Morgan is proud and grateful to have had the opportunity to contribute to many charities including The First Tee, Birdies for the Brave, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Walking for Kids, and Els for Autism. With the help of his best friend Sean Einhaus, he hosted a golf event to raise money for children in Nepal to build a school and supply computers for their classrooms.

Now, Morgan is excited to have formed his own charity foundation to raise awareness for Muscular Dystrophy, health and wellness.
