Continuing down the path to Pinehurst

Congratulations to Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis on her performance during the recent Navistar LPGA Classic!

We’ve been following Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson and the rest of the U.S. Team at The President’s Cup this week, and are hoping for a U.S. win!

Plans for The National McGladrey Team Championship (Oct. 26-28) are now in high gear. We’re looking forward to seeing Natalie, Zach and fellow Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco in Pinehurst, along with representatives from The PGA of America and Special Olympics. It promises to be an action-packed few days!

Speaking of The Team Championship, the generosity of those who have donated items for the event’s silent and live auctions continues to astound us. As part of The McGladrey Team Championship/Special Olympics partnership, we’ve been raising funds for Special Olympics athletes over the past year through Local Qualifying Event (LQE) entry fees and RSM McGladrey-sponsored events across the country. Thanks to these wonderful auction item donations, we’ll raise even more funds to help Special Olympics’ goal of increasing acceptance and inclusion for people with disabilities. That’s the power of teamwork!

We’ll post results of our fundraising efforts here from Pinehurst later this month. In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you – about anything related to The McGladrey Team Championship or golf in general. What’s on your mind?
