In Honor of Denny
In May of 2006 the world community of blind &visually impaired golf lost one of it's most respected and accomplished players my very dear friend, Dennis McCulloch. Among his playing accomplishments were numerous Canadian National Championships as well as the most coveted title of all, a World Championship in 2002. Denny held several positions on the Western Canadian Blind Golf Association and was on the Board of the International Blind Golf Association holding the office of Vice President. Denny devoted his efforts towards the promotion of blind& visually impaired golf and to improving the lives of all people who struggle with the loss of sight. He was a true gentleman and his efforts in respect to the game of blind golf worldwide will never be forgotten. In his memory, we are honored to provide funds to area blind & visually impaired students for their education as well as supporting the Wounded Warrior Project and additional sight related causes. Thank you Denny for enabling American Blind Golf to demonstrate our motto, "Motivate, Inspire & Serve!"
a very personal note, Michael, my coach, and I will always cherish the time we
spent in competition against Denny. He
was a fierce competitor that fought till the final putt just as he did with his
battle with cancer. In June of
2006, Michael and I, along with the members of the Rittman Lions Club, decided
to honor him by renaming the North American Championships. Our
tournament will be forever known as:
The McCulloch Memorial

This was the last tournament that Denny participated in with his lovely wife Barbara acting as his coach. The picture on the right was taken outside the clubhouse of Firestone Country Club during the week of the 2005 Match Play Championships.
