1931 Cadillac is Best in Show at 2014 Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance

A striking midnight blue 1931 Cadillac 452A owned by 90-year-old Charles Gillet of Lutherville, Md., was awarded the Best in Show at the 2014 Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance at Pinehurst Resort on Sunday.

The car, equipped with a V-16 engine and purchased in 1986 by Gillet and then restored by Pruiett Automotive Restoration, emerged from 119 vintage cars and a strong Class 4 Grand Classics (1925-1948) field to capture the top prize at the second annual showcase.

Video: Unbelievable Tandem Trick Shot – By Kids – AGAIN!

Oh man, they did it again.

But this time they increased the degree of difficulty.

If you follow golf – and especially if you follow golf on social media – chances are you’ve seen the ridiculous trick shot pulled off by two California high school golfers, Zachary Christman and Eric Angeles. Heck, if you’ve been anywhere near SportsCenter and the Golf Channel, you’ve probably seen their incredible shot.

Now they’ve upped the ante.

Zachary shared their newest video with us Thursday morning, and as you can see, they made things a little tougher on themselves, adding a friend and a bench in between the two shots. And it’s a longer shot. We agree with Eric – this is indeed cool.

A little more about the kids. They are high school juniors and met as freshmen at Alhambra High School in Martinez, Calif. AND GET THIS: Zachary (second shot) has only been playing golf for about two years! Eric (first shot) has been playing for 6-8, he says.

Let’s hope they keep adding to the shot – and that they keep sharing. They’re quickly becoming like the NBA Dunk Contest – you know, when it was still cool and great.

And to Zachary, thanks for sharing with us. We’ll find a way to get you guys to Pinehurst one day to try the shot at The Cradle of American Golf.

Here’s the original:

The best breakfast in golf? Do you really even need to ask?

It’s a Twitter world, and we’re all just living in it.

How else do you explain Golf Channel’s Morning Drive seizing on something called National Pancake Day – or better known on the interwebs as #NATLPancakeDay – by ranking the top breakfast spots in golf?

Well, who are we to complain? Morning Drive and Matt Ginella (we’re very big fans of Matty G over here at Pinehurst) started the call early, tweeting:

That led to a bevy of responses, most of which, it seemed anyway, appeared to be Pinehurst-related. Matty G noticed the same thing:

And so, as you can see in the video above (scroll to the 3:13 mark), Pinehurst is well-represented in Matty G’s Top 5 breakfast spots in golf. The best part, though? The clear choice at No. 1.

Of course, as great as it is to see us featured on national television, it really means a lot when it’s our followers who advocate for us. Clearly, Matty G and Morning Drive heard from A LOT of you suggesting The Carolina breakfast buffet, and so we thank you.

As always…thanks, y’all.

Oh, one more thing. T-Rose? About those Spa at Pinehurst treatments? Call us…We have a great special going right now.

Perfection

It’s not Pinehurst.

It’s not even really golf. And none of these putting strokes will be adopted by anyone who will be playing in either of the two U.S. Opens Pinehurst No.2  is hosting in 100 days.

But it’s perfection.

And it’s great storytelling.

Tell us your worst Valentine’s Day ever – and WIN!

Broken-Heart-Backgrounds-HD-Wallpapers-4

Pink balloons. Heart-shaped boxes full of chocolates. A dozen roses. Or two dozen.

We don’t care about any of that. Not this year.

We want TISSUES, TEARS and HEARTBREAK. Tell us about your worst Valentine’s Day ever, and win with Pinehurst!

Leave a comment below telling us about the worst Valentine’s Day experience of your life.

An esteemed panel of UNFEELING, LOVELORN judges will determine the best of the worst, with the winner receiving the choice of two 50-minute services at The Spa at Pinehurst or dinner for two at the 4-Star 1895 Grille. (And don’t forget dessert. For the love of humanity, DON’T FORGET DESSERT.)

Entries will be accepted until Valentine’s Day and then we’ll reveal the winners on a day not so, um, “manufactured” as Valentine’s Day.

After all, something good has to happen around that day, right?

Love,
Pinehurst Resort
