Publisher's Description

In Walking with Friends, D.J. Gregory, a thirty-yearold who has cerebral palsy, describes his year of traveling with the PGA tour and walking every course. For D.J., this experience has been the fulfillment of a lifelong dream as well as a search for inspiration, but it has also become a source of inspiration for countless others.
D.J. started watching golf with his father when he was twelve years old. While becoming a professional player, joining the amateur ranks, or even becoming a caddy were never realistic considerations because of his cerebral palsy, being able to walk the courses that the golfers—D.J.’s heroes— played was a dream D.J. never gave up on. Over the course of the 2008 PGA tour, D.J. teamed up with the PGA and made his dream come true. It was the ultimate challenge (D.J. compares walking 18 holes of golf for him to running a 10K with a couple of sandbags tied around your waist; he walked each round—four tournament rounds, plus a practice round—of every tournament), and the ultimate journey.
At each of the PGA Tour events, D.J., with the help of a cane, walks the course and counts each step (and each fall) alongside a different golfer. Filled with detailed descriptions of the courses and tournaments as well as revealing conversations with players, Walking with Friends is a one-of-a-kind story about tough lies, majestic greens, colorful characters, and the walk of a lifetime.
