Back in 2017, former major league pitcher Mark Mulder became the first player to three-peat at the ACC celebrity golf tournament in South Lake Tahoe.

So, what's the secret to Mulder's success in the event? A breakfast cocktail, according to MLB Network host Kevin Millar.

"Mulder says he has a vodka-cranberry in the morning, 7 a.m. with his breakfast," Millar told The DA Show on Friday. "Because we have a little tent right there, you eat your eggs and you talk a little smack. And then he takes one of those drinks to the driving range. So, he says he needs two cocktails, it lowers the edge. It lowers the edge. So, I followed him one year. And I'm not a huge drinker -- it comes off like that. But I'm like that fake drinker guy. So, I'm a two cocktail guy.

"Anyway, I followed him -- just like what he does. And sure enough, that first tee box, they go up and down, announce, 'Kevin Millar,' and my palms are sweating worse. So, I think I'm a coffee guy."

The 32nd annual ACC golf tournament, which has raised over $5.5 million for national and regional charities, will take place at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course from July 6-11. All three rounds of the event (July 9-11) will be televised live on NBC and NBCSN, with additional coverage from Golf Channel.
