FOG’s “Evening with Champions” Dinner was held on Friday, February 16, 2018, where FOG honored two golf GREATS:
With six Major championships, more than 40 tournament victories and a total of 98 weeks as the world’s number one golfer, Sir Nick Faldo is broadly regarded as the most successful golfer that Britain has ever produced.
As the much-anticipated 2018 U.S. Ryder Cup captain, Jim Furyk, has a stellar story of his own, having won the 2003 U.S. Open, followed by the 2010 FedEx Cup Champion and PGA Tour Player of the Year, and in 2016 shot the first 58 in PGA Tour history and was subsequently awarded the 2016 Payne Stewart Award.
This limited seating engagement was held at prestigious Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles. Tickets included a cocktail reception, small live and silent auctions, dinner and a captivating interview by world-renowned sportscaster, Jim Nantz.
