And the winner is…Clarkie!

Remember when we asked you over and over (and over and over and over and over and over) again to vote for our buddy Clarkie in the Transamerica Trick Shot Contest?

Well, you all clearly voted, and after the contest’s judges took a few weeks to discuss the top videos, we got the word this week:

CLARKIE WON!

And so now, in a few weeks, Clarkie and his family will get to enjoy an all-expenses-paid trip to Boston for a pretty spectacular round of golf, which will include not only the legendary Tom Watson, but the reigning Champion Golfer of the Year, Zach Johnson, who recently won the 2015 Open Championship at the Old Course at St. Andrews.

It is with our sincere gratitude that we thank each and every one of you who took the time to watch Clarkie’s video, to vote for him and to share the many posts promoting the contest. He received the most votes in a national contest and more people on Facebook commented about Clarkie’s video than any other.

What a great day this is.

Phil Hellmuth on Poker, Golf and Blackjack with Tiger Woods

Phil Hellmuth has won a record 14 World Series of Poker bracelets, including the main event in 1989. He’s amassed more than $18 million in live poker event earnings.

He’s also, though, fostered a friendship with Tiger Woods.

Hellmuth was in Pinehurst this week and took a moment to chat with us about a wide range of things, including how golf and poker are comparable – and playing Tiger in blackjack.

Brewing Pinehurst Pale Ale

Our upcoming Taste of the New South festival is dubbed a food and wine weekend, but beer lovers will find plenty of craft brews to sip during the three-day event.

We don’t usually pick favorites, but there is one beer everyone will want to try – Pinehurst Pale Ale.

A few members of our team recently traveled to Highland Brewing Company in Asheville to take part in the brewing process.

We used Citra hops and lemon peel to give the beer a refreshing hint of citrus. The addition of dried rosemary creates an earthy flavor that’s distinct without being overpowering. Both elements give the beer a nice aroma.

It’s a light, easy-drinking beer that we think everyone will love.

“It should be perfect for tailgating, oysters and drinking outside on a pretty weekend,” said Highland’s Toby Arnheim.

If you can’t wait until the festival to try the brew, you can take part in our launch party a few weeks before Taste of the New South. We’ll announce the details on our social media accounts soon.

Now, you may be wondering what it was like to actually brew beer. I won’t lie, it’s pretty awesome. We started the process about 8:30 a.m. and didn’t finish up until after 3 p.m. There’s a lot of science involved in the process, so we won’t go into the nuts and bolts. Instead you can see our team hard at work:
