DJ Gregory - "Walking with Friends"
A golf enthusiast and cerebral palsy patient
describes his year of traveling with the PGA tour at the sides of
many of his professional heroes, a journey marked by his walks
through each of the courses on which the golfers played, his
witness to tournament events, and an array of unique physical
fell in love with golf at the age of twelve, when he first began
watching the game on television and attending local tournaments
with his dad. But unlike many other golf fans, D.J. never dreamed
of playing professionally. He never thought of becoming a ranked
amateur, or even a caddie.
When D.J. was an infant, doctors told his parents that he would
probably spend his life in a wheelchair because of his cerebral
palsy. But that didn't keep D.J. from trying to beat the odds,
enduring five surgeries, learning to walk with a cane, and
eventually earning college degrees in sports management. Golf had
always remained D.J.'s passion, and in 2008, he decided to make a
dream come true -- to travel the country and walk with a different
player at each event on the PGA Tour.
From the first event on the island of Maui, through the
season-ending tournament at Disney World, D.J. lived out a sports
fantasy unlike any other. Every week of the tour, he traveled to a
tournament where he walked every round with the greatest golfers in
the world: Boo Weekley, an affable country boy who went on to be
the hero of the Ryder Cup...Davis Love III, whose twentieth career
win earned him a lifetime card in the PGA...and Kenny Perry, the
forty-eight-year-old veteran who, like the last days of a bright
nova, made his final professional moments in 2008 the hottest and
most brilliant of his career.
For D.J., it was the most exciting year of his life, a physically
challenging but emotionally rewarding adventure filled with
wonderful people, unforgettable moments, and cherished memories.
"Walking with Friends" is a book for all the fans who live for the
love of the game, for the dreamers and doers who make things
happen, and for the friends who help us walk through the journey of
