Golf fans who want an opportunity to play with Justin Thomas and former PGA Tour player Morgan Hoffmann have one now through Charitybuzz. The duo is raising money for the Morgan Hoffmann Foundation with a charity auction.
The charity was founded after Hoffmann was diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy. Despite having a solid collegiate run at Oklahoma State and being a rising star on the PGA Tour, it all stopped when he received the shocking news.
However, Hoffmann refused to accept his diagnosis and chose not to take what modern medicine told him about his disease. He found success through natural remedies, living in Costa Rica in the Guanacaste Mountains.
This foundation aims to create a physical wellness space to share what he has learned with others fighting MD.
The winner of the auction will bring a friend to tee it up with Thomas and Hoffmann at Panther National in Palm Beach County, Fla. This golf course is a design from Thomas and Jack Nicklaus.
Panther National can play 8,000 yards from the longest tees. Conversely, it plays 4,500 yards from the front tees. It provides an excellent test for the most amateur and professional players.
This round will occur from Oct. 30 through the end of the year. Bidding will run through Oct. 3 when a winner will be announced.
