The Morgan Hoffmann Foundation was established by Morgan and his wife Chelsea in 2017 after he was diagnosed with Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD). The Foundation has since dedicated itself to giving strength and support to those aiming to better their health. To fulfill our vision, the Morgan Hoffmann Foundation will build a virtual and physical space to teach and support integrative healing modalities for the mind, body and soul.
Morgan Hoffmann is a professional golfer on the PGA Tour, pilot, and an athlete with a passion for wellness, sports, the outdoors, and airplanes.
Having recently been diagnosed with Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD), Morgan decided to embrace the numerous challenges that accompany fighting an incurable disease, and start the Morgan Hoffmann Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to create a virtual, and physical, naturalistic health and wellness space; dedicated to helping those suffering from debilitating diseases and other health ailments.
It is Morgan’s goal to be a role model for those affected by debilitating diseases like Muscular Dystrophy, and be an inspiration for those determined to live out their dreams.
Growing up in New Jersey, Morgan was a multi-sport athlete with a passion for ice hockey, baseball, and golf. As high school approached, he decided 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, three NCAA All American Awards, two Academic All American Achievements, and the world number one ranking in amateur golf. The reality of being one of the world’s best was now in sight, so Morgan made the decision to turn professional 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 facioscapulohumeral 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.
