Move over, custom golf clubs, here come custom wines -- handpicked for your palate by a new wine club called Firstleaf.

A chardonnay as smooth as Fred Couples’ backswing.

A cabernet as oaky as a drive into the trees.

No matter what you look for in a wine, a new wine club is looking out for you. It’s called Firstleaf, and like Augusta National, it offers access to a world of refinement. Unlike Augusta, anyone can join.

It works like this.

Sign up online, and click through a few simple survey questions to help create a profile of the kinds of wines you like. 

Based on your preferences, Firstleaf’s in-house sommeliers put together a three-bottle sample kit for your approval. If you become a regular customer, you'll receive a shipment of six wines every two months. You can also rate each wine. Each time you do, Firstleaf gets a clearer sense of your leanings and fine-tunes its selections. Think of it as Pandora for wine.

By sourcing directly from acclaimed producers, Firstleaf cuts out the middle-man and passes on the savings. The six-packs are $79, or up to 60 percent off retail price.

You get to pick the date, time and frequency of delivery. And if you aren’t fully satisfied with any bottle, you can ask for a full refund.

The goal is to give you what you love at a great value.

A pinot grigio as crisp as Jordan Spieth’s ball-striking.

A syrah as shapely as the fairways at St. Andrews.

A zinfandel as . . .

Well, you get the idea.

The Best Wines in Golf
More than a handful of Tour pros have their own wine labels. But which vintages reign supreme? We asked master sommelier Brian Cronin to blind taste five whites and seven reds from some of the game's top players -- and name the best in class.
