Countdown to the Ryder Cup accelerates as team rosters take form

Expect to see the team of Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth often during the Ryder Cup at Le Golf National. They won five of a possible seven points as partners in 2014 and 2016.

We’re three weeks away from the Ryder Cup, the biennial competition between the United States and Europe. The U.S. leads the all-time series 26-13 and holds the Cup after winning in convincing fashion at Hazeltine in 2016.

We’re counting down the days until the opening tee shot, no doubt.

Wine Tasting in Bordeaux, France

A popular region to visit in France is Bordeaux; with great golf courses like Medoc Golf Course, Chateau des Vigiers, Relais and Relais de Margaux you can see why it’s a firm favourite.  Personally, the main reason for me to visit the region should be for the wine!!!

There are excellent vineyards in the St. Emilion and the Médoc areas – 92 in total all offering wine tastings and tours.  The wine tastings can last from 2 hours onwards and can easily be fit in around your golf and sightseeing schedule.  Bordeaux city itself is gorgeous, with wide boulevards, stunning architecture and beautiful parks.
