dj and the pga

On Thursday, I spent the afternoon with DJ Gregory.

Gregory, a 30-year-old from Savannah, Georgia, is a huge fan of the PGA.

Gregory has set off to walk every round of every PGA Tour event this year. That sounds like a pretty impressive feat but the impressive thing is that Gregory is afflicted with cerebal palsy. He has never thought of his cerebal palsy as anything more than an “inconvenience”.

I walked about 9 holes with DJ at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois and wish that I could have spent the whole weekend with him.

Gregory and his cousin and walking partner Phil Boyer were a delight to spend time with.

Some more pix from my shoot can be found on my sportsshooter page and and the Chicago Tribune website.
