Looking Back and Looking Forward


After months of anticipating and planning, it’s hard to believe that the inaugural McGladrey Classic is already behind us. Congratulations again to Heath Slocum on winning the tournament, and thank-you to all of the many partners and supporters, including the Davis Love Foundation, the PGA TOUR, the Sea Island Resort and the 1,200 volunteers who made the event a reality.

This week, we’ve been following Team McGladrey Member and LPGA TOUR Professional Natalie Gulbis and she’s traveled from Florida to California. In Florida, Natalie and fellow Team McGladrey Member PGA TOUR Professional Chris DiMarco met up with LPGA TOUR Professional and World Golf Hall of Fame Member Nancy Lopez for the 30th Nancy Lopez AIM Golf Tournament at The Villages, Florida. (See Natalie's twitpic here.) All proceeds from the event benefit AIM for the Handicapped, Inc.

Natalie also joined Cristie Kerr’s birthday celebration this week, and is now playing in the CVS Pharmacy LPGA Challenge through Sun., Oct. 17. We hope you’ll join us in rooting for her!

Moving forward, we’ll continue posting regular updates to our golf blog throughout the year, and will include guest posts from Team McGladrey members LPGA TOUR Professional Natalie Gulbis, and PGA TOUR Professionals Chris DiMarco, Zach Johnson and Davis Love III from time-to-time. We hope you’ll continue checking back in regularly to keep up on the latest with McGladrey’s golf-related activities and, of course, to hear details about the second McGladrey Classic, which we’ll begin working on soon.

In the meantime, if there is anything in particular in the world of golf that you’d like for us to address here, please let us know. We’d enjoy hearing from you, and will do our best to respond.
