Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Chaos At Presidents Cup

Peanut_Butter_and_Jelly_Sandwich (1)Lost in translation.

Golf dot Com reports that when the US Presidents Cup team ordered peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for on-course lunches, the Korean chefs game them exactly that: sandwiches with peanut butter, and sandwiches with jelly.

Davis Love III then explained that the peanut butter and jelly should be on the same sandwich. (I wonder if Love has a career as an ambassador in his future after golf.) So for the next day, the Korean chefs produced layered sandwiches: bread/peanut  butter/bread/jelly/bread.

Closer, at least.

Pity the International Team. They ordered ham and cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Let that sink in for a bit, given the American team’s experience ….

Yuck.

I’m actually surprised that the teams don’t travel with a team chef — that is, someone who knows the players’ preferences and food/nutrition requirements.

As an aside, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a terrific food for a golf or hiking adventure. It has carbohydrates for short term energy, as well as protein for longer sustenance. A peanut butter and jelly sandwich with two tablespoons of jelly, two tablespoons of jelly and two slices of wheat bread has 441 calories, 59 grams of carbohydrates and 13 grams of protein.
