Break out the tumblers. The price of wine is dropping fast - CNN

According to the article:
The price of wine is expected to drop to its lowest levels in five years thanks, in part, to a surplus of California grapes. 
Combined with a decreased demand for wine, drinkers can expect to get better value for every drop they drink this year. The cheaper prices may even last up to three years. 
Rob McMillan, founder of Silicon Valley Bank's Wine Division and author of the annual State of the Wine Industry report, predicts US wine consumers will enjoy the "best wine retail values in 20 years."

The United States win their tenth Presidents Cup

"That was the final day of the most unique week for Tiger Woods, who for the first time in his legendary career was the captain of a U.S. national team. Along the way, he also added playing responsibilities. Doing something -- again -- that few people have ever done.

The ending, of course, turned out to be a familiar one for Woods. He was the best player on the winning team, the Americans claiming the Presidents Cup, 16-14."

Read the full article:  Why red wine could be good for your gut - in moderation - BBC News

TIGER WOODS' MASTERS WIN IS REDEMPTION STORY FOR GOLF GREAT AND 'KICK IN THE GUT' FOR NASTY MEDIA I OPINION - Newsweek

Read the full article:  TIGER WOODS' MASTERS WIN IS REDEMPTION STORY FOR GOLF GREAT AND 'KICK IN THE GUT' FOR NASTY MEDIA I OPINION - Newsweek

"I cried because I watched Tiger Woods do something so many people thought he couldn’t: win another Masters. Many sportswriters had written off the possibility of Tiger ever winning another major again, let alone the most important one. 
I wasn’t alone. As we all watched Tiger drop his last putt at Augusta National, we witnessed a very different man celebrating his fifth Masters win. A man who exploded with joy when the ball dropped in the hole. Real, unadulterated joy."
What a win!  Congrats to Tiger!

Tiger Woods no swing coach because of back fusion ESPN Golf

Read the full article:  Tiger Woods no swing coach because of back fusion ESPN Golf:

""The only big deal about it is that no one really understands what it's like to have a fused back and be able to play,'' said Woods, referring to the April back surgery, his fourth, that fused the vertebrae in his lower back. "It's not about how the swing actually looks like. You can get into positions and things of that nature and there are a lot of things I can't do anymore because of the nature of the fusion.

"So I'm relying on feel and my past performances.''"

Wine’s brewski moment: Canned wine is here, but can it avoid the down-market trap? - San Francisco Chronicle

Read the full article:   Wine’s brewski moment: Canned wine is here, but can it avoid the down-market trap? - San Francisco Chronicle:

"I’m betting — hoping, at least — that canned wine transcends its down-market beginnings, like rosé did. Why? Because if it succeeds, maybe it can help transform our conceptions of what “good wine” can be — expanding that term to include not only tannin-laden, muscular wines but also refreshing, early-drinking, light ones. Not only wines in weighty bottles whose labels are printed in cursive and whose necks are stuffed with a tree cork, but also wines in a cold sheath of aluminum."
