FOG, along with the SCGA Junior, select a local high school boy and girl who have demonstrated significant talent and a serious ambition in competitive golf, but may not have had the financial resources to participate at the high school level. Through the contributions of FOG, the sponsors and the players these two young people are on scene to represent all the high school boys and girls, in similar situations, throughout southern California.
After hitting a few shots, the Honoree dissects the youngsters’ swings and offers concrete instruction and tips on how they can improve. They share anecdotes and always demonstrate a few of their own enormous talents for the mesmerized audience of golfers.
When the letters from the enthusiastic FOG participants come in every year after they return home, they always comment on how fantastic it was to be so close to one of golf’s true legends and see the magic of their games. If you played in the early morning, it is time for lunch, shower and rest in preparation for the next main event: The Dinner Gala.
