Annual Event at Riviera Country Club will Honor Peter Kostis
PuttView, maker of golf’s premier yardage and topographical greens map book, is sponsoring the annual Friends of Golf (FOG) tournament, a one-day fundraising event that will be held September 27 at famed Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, Calif.
This year’s FOG event will honor Peter Kostis, a longtime television analyst and instructor. The tournament will again attract a star-studded field to help raise money for an organization dedicated to bringing golf to youth in California and throughout America.
Since 1986, FOG has been working closely with the CIF to provide high school boys and girls the resources to play competitive high school golf. Not all students can afford to play golf, yet many have the talent and the desire. FOG has provided funds, equipment and other resources to the three most prominent southern California CIF sections. FOG also supports elementary school kids through its partnership with the SCGA Junior Foundation and the Southern California PGA programs for juniors.
As part of PuttView’s sponsorship, FOG participants will receive a copy of “The Book,” one of golf’s hottest new accessories. Working with renowned putting instructor Phil Kenyon, PuttView designed The Book to offer two views of each green, including an easy-to-read thermal view that uses color to allow players to quickly see ridges in greens and possible hole locations.
The detailed view supports green reading with arrows and contours shown at the maximum level allowed within the rules of golf, helping players quickly process vital information.
Yardage books feature fairway arrows when the slope exceeds 4 percent, carry and runout distance, elevation change and distance rings, among other valuable information.
Both the greens maps and yardage book are fully compliant with all USGA and R&A rules.
“The Book” burst on to the scene in July 2020 and its popularity continues to grow exponentially as word of its quality has circulated among players at all levels of the game.
PuttView offers greens maps for more than 8,000 courses – a number that is growing daily – and yardage books for 30,000+ layouts across the globe (Search For Your Favorite Course).
