My guest on this episode is Darren Carroll. If you have seen incredible photographs from USGA events, there is an excellent chance that Darren was behind the camera when the shutter button was pressed. His work has been featured in Sports Illustrated, Golf World, and Golf Digest and he serves as a photography consultant to the PGA of America, and is also part of the photography team for both the U.S. Open Golf and U.S. Open Tennis championships. Great stories from behind the viewfinder by one of the best golf photographers in the world.

Our guest this week is Ryan Vermeer from Omaha, Nebraska. Ryan is a former two-time All-American at the University of Kansas that holds the record for most career wins as a Jayhawk....even more than Gary Woodland! He did play professionally on tour for several years, reaching the Kornferry Tour, but made the transition back to being a teaching professional in his home state of Nebraska. The transition has led him to incredible successes in the Nebraska PGA Section. In fact, he is the first Nebraska PGA Member to win the PGA Professional National Championship, which he did in 2018. He has played in numerous PGA Championships and represented the PGA of America and his country in the PGA Cup.

Our guest this week is Dennis Walters, the star of the Dennis Walters Golf Show!
Dennis is one of only eleven honorary lifetime members of The PGA of America. The PGA of America. Earlier this year, the USGA awarded Dennis with the Bob Jones Award during the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills. Next year, Dennis will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Dennis was an exceptional collegiate player, but before he was able to chase down the dream of playing on the PGA Tour, he had a tragic accident that left him paralyzed. As you'll find out in this episode, that didn't stop him from finding a different way to play golf. Eventually, he developed the Dennis Walters Golf Show and has been on his OWN tour for over 40 years. He's performed over 3K shows all over the world. His trick shot artistry may be the glitz and glam of the show, but most importantly....he provides a message of positivity and hard work to his audiences.
