What Do Buttered Popcorn and Reese's Pieces Have to do with Team McGladrey?

Congratulations to Matt Kuchar for winning The Barclays – great news for a great guy! We’re THRILLED that Matt will be joining Team McGladrey Members Zach Johnson, Davis Love III and Chris DiMarco at beautiful Sea Island for The McGladrey Classic next month! Ben Crane has signed on as well, so the roster is rounding out nicely, and we can hardly wait to head south!

After recently hosting the Natalie Gulbis Charity Classic at The Loon Golf Resort, we learned this week that she’ll be returning there Sept. 24-26 for the Natalie Gulbis Showcase event. We also learned, by the way, that her favorite movie snack is buttered popcorn and Reese’s Pieces. (YUM!) What’s your favorite?

Also up this week, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson was so excited by the record-low airport security lines as he traveled to Boston that he posted a couple of Twitpics about it.

Next week, we’ll learn who Corey Pavin picks to round out his team of 12 for the Ryder Cup. That announcement is scheduled for Tues., Sept. 7, and you can bet we’ll be keeping an eye (and ear) out since the rumor mill has Zach as one of the contenders. Keep your fingers crossed!

It’s hard to believe that The McGladrey Classic is just a little more than a month away. Tickets are available for Wed., Oct. 6 through Sun., Oct. 10, and we’re still looking for volunteers. If you’re interested in helping or in getting tickets, visit www.mcgladreyclassicom.
