Jody’s best drive at the Cadillac Championship
Wine Portfolio’s week at the Cadillac Championship was a great one. We really enjoyed our interviews with PGA Tour players Ryan Palmer and Robert Karlsson. And we think the players were also happy to sit down with some media people who weren’t fixated on their backswing, their driving accuracy or whether Tiger’s new coach would help or hinder his chances of winning on the Tour. Jody and the Wine Portfolio team offered an oasis from golf and let the PGA Tour pros share their thoughts on their favorite wines and food pairings while out on the Tour, on vacation with their families, or in their own homes with friends.
Then we were off to the driving range where Wine Portfolio was “inside the ropes” to get some up close and personal footage of all the PGA Tour players warming up. It’s only when you are standing ten feet away from the current roster of the best 69 golfers in the world and watching them consistently strike 300 yard drives straight down the fairway that you realize just how good these guys really are.
But since we didn’t have the skills to drive the ball as consistently as the PGA Tour players on the driving range the next logical place for the Wine Portfolio team was the Cadillac hospitality suite. Hey everybody has their skills, and we know ours. As the title sponsor of the Cadillac Championship there were over 150 various vehicles on site at Doral but finding a Cadillac that wasn’t spoken for seemed as tough as making a “greenside lob over a bunker”. However the dogged efforts of Nick Twork and Bill Bentson saw us through. Check out the clip below for the results of Jody’s best drive at the Cadillac Championship. Yep it drives as good as it looks
