Vince Vaughn

We know him mainly as the charming male lead in a series of megahit comedies like Wedding Crashers, but Vince Vaughn is dusting off his serious side for "True Detective." Plus, we take a look at a time when dressing for the game was a major component of golf and pay homage to Richard Overton, the 109-year-old cigar smoking veteran. Additionally, we interview Cuba tobacco guru Eumelio Espino and take you on a tour of the finest destinations in golf. Also, we rate a total of 77 cigars in six categories: Churchill, corona gorda, figurado, miscellaneous, petit corona and robusto.
