2014 Honoree – BUTCH HARMON

Why drive hours to Las Vegas, spend thousands of dollars on lessons with Butch Harmon when you can head over to the Bel-Air Country Club for a private clinic with Butch on April 28th. Yep! That’s right, Butch will share his magic with the players in the  35th Annual FOG Charity Golf Tournament. And, as a player, your money will NOT go to travel but to young golfers who might never play had it not been for your generosity.

Butch Harmon is considered the best golf instructor in the United States. He teaches pros and amateurs, young and senior, men and women.

To have a lesson with Butch would be one of the greatest gifts a golfer could have. We asked Butch a number of questions the average golfer might want him to answer, and he graciously agreed to do so: Please enjoy our Special Q&A{read more}

THE KEN VENTURI “Spirit of Giving” AWARD
For the first time in its 34-year history, the Friends of Golf (FOG) organization (FOG) has created the inaugural Ken Venturi “Spirit of Giving” Award. This award was created to honor Ken Venturi and his commitment to be an inspiring and motivating force for young golfers everywhere. Ken has been a Friend of FOG for many years—almost since its inception.  Over the years, he graciously contributed his time to support the mission of FOG by attending the event every year, conducting clinics for the players, and attracting many of the top professional golfers to contribute their time and interest to fostering good will for the young amateur and college golfer.  At this year’s FOG Charity Golf Tournament, Michael Stramaglio of MWAi was awarded this outstanding award.

They are all named for the most recognized college sports awards in the country. Ben Hogan was arguably the best golfer in history, yet few golfers (let alone ordinary Americans), are aware of the Hogan Trophy. {read more}
