be­tween two fam­ily em­pires and adorn the limited-edi­tion bot­tle with an adapted sketch of him­self as a 16-year-old boy, cad­dy­ing for his fa­ther on the Hazel­tine golf course—a trib­ute to the late Jones, Sr., as well as to Baron Philippe de Roth­schild, cre­ator of Mou­ton Cadet and “cadet” of his own fam­ily.

The ar­chi­tect said of the col­lab­o­ra­tion, “I am thrilled to part­ner with Mou­ton Cadet on this mean­ing­ful ven­ture. Hav­ing at­tended the 1970 U.S. Open at Hazel­tine with my fa­ther and fam­ily, it’s won­der­ful to be back on these grounds to honor and share in that mem­ory with some of world’s most pas­sion­ate play­ers and fans of the game.”

The Bordeaux, which has a ripe black fruit aroma with a spicy fla­vor, was served through­out the grounds and in the hos­pi­tal­ity ar­eas dur­ing the Ry­der Cup at Hazel­tine.

Pro­duced by the fam­ily-owned French com­pany Baron Philippe de Roth­schild, Mou­ton Cadet was cre­ated in 1930 and has re­mained true to its ori­gins while evolv­ing into what has now be­come the world’s lead­ing brand of Bordeaux AOC wines, and is sold in 150 coun­tries around the world. The brand will also serve as the Of­fi­cial Wine for the 2018 Ry­der Cup at Le Golf Na­tional in Paris, France.

This special of­fer­ing will al­low wine and golf en­thu­si­asts across the globe the chance to par­tic­i­pate in one of the sport’s most an­tic­i­pated events. Mou­ton Cadet and Jones, Jr.’s Limited Edi­tion bot­tle can also be pur­chased as a me­mento from this year’s Ry­der Cup in se­lect re­tail lo­ca­tions glob­ally, in­clud­ing in Amer­ica--New York, Florida, Illi­nois, Cal­i­for­nia and Texas through De­cem­ber 2016.

Many golfers wear sun­glasses to shade their eyes and get pro­tec­tion from the sun, but a new prod­uct in the eye­glass line for golfers that is more about help­ing play­ers see col­ors bet­ter (and read­ing greens) is now on the mar­ket in the form of the Oxy-Iso glasses by 02Amp.

First of all, when you wear these on the course, it will be some­thing en­tirely dif­fer­ent than you have ever ex­pe­ri­enced. The bright, clear pur­ple tint doesn’t hide your eyes like sun­glasses would, and putting them on en­hances not only the light, but the var­i­ous col­ors. And, de­pend­ing on the per­son and their eye­sight, many col­ors look very dif­fer­ent from what they would with­out these glasses that not only bring a new clar­ity to vi­sion, but en­hance var­i­ous col­ors.

The man­u­fac­turer stresses that for those play­ing golf, these glasses will en­hance the vi­sion of the ter­rain—par­tic­u­larly on the greens—and are es­pe­cially help­ful for peo­ple with color blind­ness in the red-green spec­trum.

The Oxy-Iso glasses were de­vel­oped by Dr. Mark Changizi who used sev­eral fun­da­men­tal dis­cov­er­ies by Caltech and Prince­ton sci­en­tists who have done ex­ten­sive re­search on the ori­gins of color vi­sion.

In ad­di­tion to color, these glasses are very ef­fec­tive in shade or over­cast con­di­tions, es­pe­cially for any­one who has prob­lems wearing tra­di­tional sun­glasses in a darker set­ting. They also of­fer UV pro­tec­tion, are anti-fog and have an anti-scratch coat­ing with very light­weight and com­fort­able frames.
