NEW YORK (AP) - PGA Tour player Morgan Hoffmann says he has been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and that his right pectoral muscle is nearly gone.
In a story Hoffmann wrote for The Players' Tribune website, he says he started to notice his right pectoral deteriorating about five years ago. He saw more than 25 doctors as his weakness progressed and his swing speed decreased.
He says he was diagnosed in November 2016.
"Even though the type of muscular dystrophy that I have doesn't pose an immediate threat to my life, there is a good chance that it will shorten it," Hoffman wrote. "I don't know when that will happen, because there's no way to gauge the speed at which the disease will spread.
