Food, wine, fitness and fashion – it was all the talk on Wednesday.
The Bank of Hope Founders Cup hosted its media day on Wednesday at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa. The LPGA’s Cristie Kerr, Ryann O’Toole and Phoenix resident Cheyenne Woods were on hand to meet with local media, bloggers and a chapter of the LPGA*USGA Girls Golf program. The trio discussed healthy eating habits, their workouts of choice, fashion and Kerr discussed her wine label. Chef John Collura made a special dish of spaghetti squash, which he paired with some of Kerr’s wine.
In five weeks the Tour will make the trip to Phoenix for the seventh playing of the Bank of Hope Founders Cup. Wednesday, the Tournament announced sponsor exemptions for 2014 U.S. Women’s Amateur Hannah O’Sullivan and LPGA veteran Natalie Gulbis.
