The former Oklahoma State standout started the Morgan Hoffmann Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for muscular dystrophy and improving the physical and mental wellness of those in the fight against neuromuscular diseases. And it raised $1.5 million during an August golf outing at Arcola Country Club in Paramus, N.J. Although there's no cure for muscular dystrophy presently, Hoffmann, who wrote "my entire right pec is almost gone" in that Players' Tribune piece, has vowed to return to the PGA Tour when he is recovered. I’ve heard amazing stories that you think would be a lie.
I want a cure before I get back on Tour, and (then) spread the word and tell the world about it." We wish Morgan the best in his continued pursuit and hope to see him playing competitively again soon. But in the meantime, we also extend our congrats to the lovely couple. 5 of The Best Podcast Episodes for Morgan Hoffmann.

D&D Fitness Radio Podcast - Episode 030: Morgan Hoffmann - Finding the Drive to Play Through Adversity.
Episode 030 of the D&D Fitness Radio Podcast welcomes PGA golfer, Morgan Hoffmann. In 2017, Morgan announced that he had been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, an incurable disease that causes progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass. He noticed as early as 2011 that his right pectoral muscle was deteriorating and sought out medical specialists to determine what was going on. It took over five years for doctors to determine the muscular dystrophy diagnosis, all the while his muscle was atrophying and his swing velocity was decreasing. Morgan walks us through some of the therapies and approaches he has adopted to address the impact of muscular dystrophy on his golf career. His return to the PGA tour in 2018 has been nothing short of miraculous. As a youth golfer, Morgan Hoffmann won two consecutive New Jersey state championships. Morgan spent two years at Oklahoma State University on their golf team and was ranked as one of the top amateurs in the world in 2009. After playing in the 2010 US Open, Morgan decided to leave university and pursue a career in pro golfing. In 2012, he played in 13 events and finished 19th on the money list, earning a promotion to the PGA Tour. In November 2017, the Morgan Hoffman Foundation was established to find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy and provide programs to assist those who are fighting the disease and require help in taking control of their health to live longer and better lives.

We'll help clear the fog about marijuana's 'kissing cousin' A look into the various uses for hemp. The Ananda Hemp product known as Full Spectrum Extract is powerful enough to require only a few drops to be effective. 10/9/17 (Photo: Marty Pearl/Special to CJ) Buy Photo. Even if you smoke it, gulp its peppermint oil and munch on nutty hemp heart seeds and chocolate hemp bark until your belly aches, you're not gonna binge your way to a buzz. You can throw a party with hemp-laced brownies, but the most your guests can hope for is an extra dose of protein and omega 3's. That's because they're "kissing cousins," said Brent Burchett, head of value-added plant production for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. Both come from the same plant species, Cannabis sativa. They have the same pointy leaves and pungent smell. Industrial hemp grown in the United States since 2014 must limit the level of mood-altering Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol — a psychoactive compound better known as THC — to 0.3. Even ridiculous, according to some hemp advocates who are pushing to increase the legal amount. Marijuana on the streets today has an average of 42 times more THC, according to drugs seized by federal agents last year and analyzed for the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Today's pot is much more potent than what was available decades ago. The average pot seized by law enforcement in 1995 had about 4 percent THC.
Even that was 13 times the current legal amount in hemp. What hemp does offer is powerful cannabidiol oil, better known as CBD, extracted from the flower of the plant. For years, pain sufferers have touted its power to ease headaches, arthritis and other pain and inflammation. New research shows it has even lessened violent and potentially deadly seizures in children with a severe form of epilepsy. But taking CBD can cause you to fail a drug screening if it simply tests "positive or negative" for the chemical and doesn't measure the amount. So you might want to take a doctor's note to your employer. Many hemp products in stores today are derived from hemp seeds, which don't contain THC.
The seeds have been called a "superfood" since they are rich in protein and omegas. So go ahead and drizzle your salad with hemp-seed oil dressing, chomp on a hemp burger and guzzle a hemp beer.
