Hamptons Golf Classic VI: The Warm-Up

by BRITTA LOFGREN · June 21, 2010

    We'll be getting our official photos and coverage up and running later, but just wanted to keep you all up to date on what's happening out at the Hamptons Golf Classic.

    We've done our tour around the course, every hole sponsored by someone new, from Smartwater and Arizona to Dos Equis and Russian Standard Vodka.  The girls at the Russian Standard hole, no doubt sweltering in those fur hats with this 86 degree weather, handed out tasters of the Moscow Mule (vodka and ginger beer), while the Svedka girls encouraged New York Giants star, and today's host, Justin Tuck to have just one shot with them- you know, to loosen up his swing (don't worry Giants fans, he declined). Tuck and his foursome, including ex-Knicks player John Starks, made for an entertaining bunch as they played their way through the course...though we must admit we think Tuck had best stick to the greens of the football field in the future.

    Real Housewife of NYC Jill Zarin also made her way out on the course, holding her own in the mostly male tournament.

    Overall everyone out on the course seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves, whether or not the alcohol sponsors were responsible for that can be left up for interpretation (but we're sure it didn't hurt).  And as for us, we've been trolling around with writer/actor/social sweetheart Rachel Heller of Haute Living and Social Life Magazine, and having an absolute blast.  Who knew golf could be so much fun?!
