CHICAGO -- Dottie Pepper, former LPGA star and current NBC/Golf Channel personality who launched a children's picture books series earlier this year featuring a range golf ball character named, Bogey Ballton, will make an appearance along with co-author Scott Fuller and their Bogey mascot at the Bagpipes & Blues Ryder Cup event this Thursday, September 27, 2012 at The Field Museum located at 1400 S.

His fate changes when John the Ball Washer helps Bogey to be Truthful with himself and follow his dream of becoming a pro tour golf ball. This is the first book in the Bogey series. Co-authored by Dottie Pepper & Scott Fuller, and Illustrated by Kenneth Templeton, Bogey offers a unique way for kids and families to be introduced to the game of golf while promoting life lessons and values that are applicable on and off the golf course.
