Team McGladrey Traveling, Playing, Cooking and Tweeting the Week Away

The McGladrey Classic is less than two short months away, and planning activities are in full swing. In fact, a small contingent from McGladrey spent the earlier part of this week at Sea Island (Hey…it’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it!) “crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s” to make sure this inaugural event is a high-quality one-of-a-kind tournament that you won’t want to miss!

Tickets for The McGladrey Classic are available for Wed., Oct. 6 through Sun., Oct. 10. For more details and/or to purchase tickets, visit www.mcgladreyclassic.com . If you’re interested in rolling up your sleeves and volunteering, you can also find those details at www.mcgladreyclassic.com.

On the Team McGladrey front this week, both Zach Johnson and Davis Love III are playing in the 92nd PGA Championship (Aug. 9 – 15) at Whistling Straights in Kohler, WI. I haven’t been lucky enough to make it to the PGA Championship, but understand that it has served as a launching pad for a number of first-time major champions including Paul Azinger, John Daly, Rich Beem and Team McGladrey member Davis Love III. What do you think – will this year’s Championship produce another first-time champion or will one of the previously proven players (perhaps Zach) win this go-round?

Another tidbit from this week: Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis took an appetizer cooking lesson. Check out the delicious-looking results on Twitter! And speaking of Twitter, check out what Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III had to say about The McGladrey Classic.
