D.J. Gregory making a difference with every step at the Honda Classic

Some of the big names like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy may be missing from this year's Honda Classic, but there's one guy you can always rely on being here. D.J. Gregory is back for the 10th straight year, and even the biggest names on the PGA Tour tip their caps to him.

"I don't feel sorry for myself," says Gregory, who was born with Cerebral Palsy. "I see it as the glass half full not half empty."

Gregory's condition hasn't stopped him from walking each and every hole on the PGA Tour since 2008. His goal is to raise money for his Walk for Kids Foundation, which improves the lives of kids with special needs.

"My foundation is to help kids reach their goals and dreams one step at a time," says Gregory. And if I can do that that's what I love to do."

" I mean he's just like one of us," says PGA player Scott Brown, the player who Gregory has chosen to follow around at this year's Honda Classic. "That's why we love being around him."

"He's always in a good mood," says PGA star Rickie Fowler, who's become good friends with Gregory. "Anyone who looks over at him and sees him cruising around, it makes you feel good."

"Some of my.best friends are professional golfers," says Gregory. "As long as these guys still want me out here, I'm still gonna be out here. It's pretty special."

It's also special that Gregory is slated to reach the $1,000,000 mark for money raised for his foundation over the last 10 years.
