FRIENDS OF GOLF (FOG):
Originally founded in 1979, FOG has donated over $10 million to both national and Southern California college, high school and non-profit golf-focused organizations. FOG supports student athlete golfers by instilling the values of honesty, ethics, and fellowship with a true appreciation for the game. From the time boys and girls enter grade school through the end of their college experience, FOG makes it possible for aspiring junior golfers (irrespective of economic standing) to play, compete and excel in this exceptional sport.
G/FORE is the golf-inspired sportswear and accessories brand created and designed by veteran fashion innovator Mossimo Giannulli, who for many years has been a supporter of junior golfers and FOG’s Mission. G/FORE was conceptualized with a passion for modern design combined with a love of golf. Inspired by art, architecture, and high fashion, G/FORE is distinguished by our attention to detail, sophisticated ease, whimsical nature, and youthful energy. We consistently strive to make a powerful and colorful impact on our favorite game. Our intent is to disrupt the industry while honoring the sport and its rich traditions.
