2/17- Global GGG Show> Golf Channel’s Original Host Peter Kessler

Do you remember the melodic baritone voice of Peter Kessler?  Peter premiered at the Golf Channel and was the host until 2002. In those 8 years he wrote, hosted and produced over 1300 hours of “live” television.  He has interviewed nearly every great player and teacher in the 20th century.

The Golf, Grape & Grub Show brings in Peter to discuss some hot topics in the game along with his wonderful historical insight. Jack or Tiger as the GOAT; rolling back the ball for pros; slow play; you name it, we’ll get Peter’s take on it.

Pam Wood and I tee it up at 11 AM (CT) this Saturday on FB Live.

Known by many as “The Voice of Golf”, Peter was also the host of HBO Sports and has narrated Emmy award winning documentaries. He has also written acclaimed interviews for GOLF Magazine and founded the first hybrid golf club company.

For the past six, years Peter has hosted and produced a golf talk show on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s PGA Tour Network.  He’s also the host of Golf Stories on the 101 Network which debuted on DIRECT TV in 2010.

More WOW w/ Obsession’s Linda Neal + Tiger’s Return–Wow???

More WOW w/ Obsession’s Linda Neal + Tiger’s Return–Wow???

The Golf, Grape & Grub Show continues our interest and coverage of Women of Wine with Linda Neal, President of Obsession Wine Company.  Linda literally grew up in the vineyards of Oakville pruning and managing the growth of grape vines. She managed a vineyard company for over 20 years.

Linda still makes a wonderful small production cult wine from the highly acclaimed Oakville AVA in Napa called Tierra Roja.  Additionally, she founded a laid back and fun winery in the Sierra Foothills between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe called Mellowood.  Zestee zins and syrahs are the focus up there.

Pam Wood & I tee it up this Saturday on FB Live @ 11 AM(CT).  Of course, we’ll give some guy named Tiger a thought or two as he returns to the PGA Tour.  What’s the over/under on him making the cut?  The LPGA is kicking off their season this week in the Bahamas.

Women of Wine (WOW) with WineSpeed’s Karen MacNeil

The first Golf, Grape & Grub Show of 2018 is on the tee this Saturday @ a new time of 2PM (CT/Noon PT) on FB Live!  We’ll update you on the start of the calendar year on the Pro Tours, plus we begin with one our show’s fave wine people,  Wine Speed’s Karen MacNeil.

Far reaching global wine knowledge is only part of Karen’s story. She is considered America’s foremost wine presenter–a speaker who can enchant audiences from 5 to 500, and from wine novices to wine collectors alike. And she’ll explain why she uses zestee metaphors and wine descriptors like “bed sheets” and “erogenous zones” to perk up your interest.

Karen is also the author of the award-winning book, THE WINE BIBLE, the single best- selling wine book in the United States, praised as “The most informative and entertaining book I’ve ever seen on the subject” (Danny Meyer), “Astounding” (Thomas Keller), and “A masterpiece of wine writing…the single best wine book written in years…” (Kevin Zraly).

The former wine correspondent for the Today Show, Karen was the host of the PBS series Wine, Food and Friends with Karen MacNeil, for which she won an Emmy. Karen is the creator and editor of WineSpeed, the leading digital “e-letter” in the U.S. for fast, authoritative information about wine.
