There’s more top tier golf on the sked for us golf fans, the 99th PGA Championship at Quail Hollow plus, the Solheim Cup from Des Moines CC and the US Amateur @ Riviera CC.
Pam Wood & I tee it up Saturday on the Golf, Grape & Grub Show @ 11 AM(CT) on FB Live.
Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson will be playing in their 100th Major. There have only been 12 players in the game that have done that. If it’s horses for courses, then Rory is the big favorite with Jordan Spieth right on his heels. Can Jordan be the youngest ever to win the Grand Slam?
Next week the Solheim Cup & US Am highlight the scene. Gotta love it when the captains are Juli Inkster & Annika Sorenstam.
Speaking of love, we have to throw some Giant applause to the new #1 ranked amateur in the world, Cameron Champ of Sacramento. Cam has had a great summer where he burst on the Global stage by tying for 10th at the US Open. He has gone on to win the Trans Mississippi Am, was medalist at the North & South @ Pinehurst and qualified for the round of 16 at the Pacific Coast Am. Next up is the US Am & Walker Cup.
Cam has one more year left at Texas A&M and then lookout tour. If you don’t know, Cam is longer by 20+ yards than the longest of tour pros. Gig ’em!! Everyone digs the long ball!!!
Marcus Marquez is the author of the invitingly urgent book 100 Things to do in Napa Before You Die. He’ll join us in the second half of the show. He has been on all sides of the food, wine and hospitality industry in Napa Valley and Northern California. After launching and representing premium wine brands, Marcus partnered to create Goose & Gander restaurant in St. Helena, then moved on to co-create Brasswood Estate.
With his new book Marcus seeks to illuminate both the classic experiences of Napa Valley and the lesser known hidden gems. His experience in the food and wine industry and his vision for the future of Brasswood Estate, fold nicely into his overall take on Napa Valley.
On a separate but exciting note, harvest has already started!!
