THE KEN VENTURI “Spirit of Giving” AWARD

In 2012, for the first time in its history, Friends of Golf (FOG) created the inaugural Ken Venturi “Spirit of Giving” Award. This award was created to honor Ken Venturi and his lifelong commitment to be an inspiring and motivating force for young golfers everywhere.   Ken was a Friend of FOG for many years—almost since its inception. Through the years, he graciously contributed his time and energy 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.  Each new year, FOG honors another individual who represents similar values and devotes their life to giving and inspiring young golfers everywhere.

The 2015 “Spirit of Giving” Award recipients are Ely Callaway (Founder) and Oliver “Chip” Brewer (CEO) of CALLAWAY GOLF.

The BEN HOGAN Trophy

What do Vince Lombardi, John Heisman, Bronco Nagurski, Chuck Bednarik, Dick Butkus, Ronnie Lott and Ben Hogan all have in common? 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}
