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.
