Dennis Walters & Bucky

Dennis Walters' dream was always to play successfully on the PGA Tour when he had an accident in 1974 that left him paralyzed from the waist down. After his accident it was looking pretty bleak for that dream. Dennis found there were a lot of things he couldn't do, but there was no way he was giving up playing golf and thus with this never say die attitude a new career was born.

Dennis Walters Show Logo

The Dennis Walters Golf Show is a one hour combination of "Golf Lessons and Life Lessons." It is great golf, great fun, along with an inspiring message.

With over 3000 appearances in all 50 states, the show is guaranteed to be one you don't want to miss!

Dennis will provide an exhilarating performance of precision golf trick shots from unusual lies which are done with a variety of items as well as deliver a powerful motivating message.

Dennis' theory is that if you have a good swing you can hit good shots with almost anything.

His canine co-host Bucky is guaranteed to be the star of the show with a variety of tricks, and his uncanny ability to correctly answer math and golf trivia by barking out the answer. Dennis encourages audience participation to try and stump him!

Dennis is one of only eleven honorary lifetime members of The PGA of America, has been presented with The PGA's highest honor, The Distinguished Service Award and appointed a spokesperson and national ambassador for The First Tee.

Most recently, the USGA (United States Golf Association) has bestowed it's highest honor upon Dennis, the Bob Jones Award.
