“We are teeing up a serious issue and wanted to time the release when kids were starting to get back to school," said Pepper, formerly the No. 1-ranked golfer in the world and currently a broadcaster for ESPN.
The new book again features the series’ title character, Bogey Ballton, who is attending Best Ball School in an attempt to earn his tour card. Because he is a range ball, Bogey becomes an easy target for a group of bullies until the other students, led by Bogey’s bully busting gal pal Daisy, stand up and put a stop to the bullying.
Scooter Pines Publishing, a division of Scooter Pines Holdings, LLC, is publishing “A Lesson About Bullying.” The new book will be formally introduced during the Wegmans LPGA Championship, to be held Aug. 11-17 at, Monroe Golf Club in Pittsford, N.Y.
A portion of the book’s proceeds will go to help support The LPGA Foundation, whose mission is to empower and support girls and women through developmental and humanitarian golf initiatives. Additionally, 150 autographed “Bogey Tees Off Vol. 1” books will be distributed throughout the Rochester area to help promote literacy and the tournament.
"In addition to giving back, Bogey's mission is to get kids playing golf, reading, and having fun," Fuller said. “The Wegmans LPGA Championship is the perfect place to have fun and introduce our female hero, Daisy!”
