Guest Post by PGA Tour Professional Chris DiMarco



PGA Tour Professional Chris DiMarco, along with Zach Johnson and LPGA Tour Professional Natalie Gulbis, make up Team McGladrey. Through their involvement with RSM McGladrey, Natalie, Chris and Zach participate in certain activities sponsored by the firm, and support a number of charitable organizations. The following post is an update from Chris after he participated in the recent Shark Shootout in Naples, FL:


I recently participated in one of my favorite golf events, The Shark Shootout, at the Tiburon Golf Club at the Ritz Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida. This event, hosted by World Golf Hall of Fame member Greg Norman is one of the most unique events on The PGA Tour. I’d like to congratulate 2009 winners: Jerry Kelly and Steve Stricker.

This was my third consecutive year playing in the Shark Shootout, and my fourth time overall. This year, however, I not only had the honor of playing the course with two-dozen of the world’s top professional golfers, but I was also able to spend some time with a couple of leaders from RSM McGladrey, one of my sponsors.

Jon Davis and Jay Zack work out of RSM McGladrey’s Naples office, and they brought a few of their clients and potential clients along with them. We had a great time talking about golf and sharing tips and stories. They even humored me by asking me to autograph their PING hats. It was a great way to wind down a busy year.

I hope you are able to spend time with family and friends this holiday season, and that you enjoy a prosperous New Year!
