'Walking with Friends'

May 06, 2009

D.J. Gregory walked every round (including a practice round) on every course on the PGA Tour in 2008 -- 3,256 holes and 988 miles -- fulfilling a dream one difficult step at a time. Gregory was born with cerebral palsy.

Gregory likens 18 holes on foot to running a 10K with sandbags tied around his waist, yet he persevered (enduring 29 falls in the process), and has written a book about his adventure, "Walking with Friends: An Inspirational Year on the PGA Tour," that is now available at bookstores.
