Henri’s Bakery & Café Sham-Rocks PGA TOUR Championship with Cookies, Sandwiches Sept. 20-24

Atlanta connections run deeper than a golf course pond for the PGA TOUR Championship and Henri’s Bakery & Café. The two institutions will share a delicious bond showcasing the legacy of golfer Bobby Jones when the PGA TOUR’s season-ending competition draws the world’s best golfers and throngs of viewers to historic East Lake Golf Club Sept. 21-24. Jones was a founding member of East Lake Golf Club and is considered by many to be the game’s greatest amateur golfer. Born on St. Patrick’s Day in 1902, the Atlanta native kept a shamrock charm on his pocket watch…lucky inspiration for the shamrock shortbread cookies Henri’s will prepare exclusively for tournament week. Henri’s, which opened its doors in Atlanta in 1929, has two locations (the newly relocated Buckhead store in Andrews Square and the Sandy Springs store) delighting Atlantans with bakery delicacies and premium deli favorites. The renowned Atlanta bakery will serve some of its famous sandwiches -- the turkey po-boy, the roast beef po-boy, turkey on white and ham and cheese on white -- at the Tour Championship. “It’s worth noting that within a year of Henri’s Bakery first opening its doors, Bobby Jones became the only golfer to ever win the Grand Slam in the same calendar year,” points out Anthony DiNardo, president of Henri’s Bakery & Café. Tasty trivia to chew on while watching the pros vie for the FedExCup and a replica of Jones’ Grand Slam-winning Calamity Jane putter.
