Lots of "Firsts" Related to The McGladrey Classic

Fresh on the heels of the first-ever McGladrey Classic, McGladrey has two current connections to other inaugural events – both in Malaysia.

LPGA TOUR Professional and Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis is there to play in the inaugural Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia (Oct. 22 – 24) at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. Upon her arrival, Natalie and fellow LPGA TOUR professionals Cristie Kerr and Michelle Wie visited the Sime Darby Medical Centre to learn about the Cancer Research Initiatives Foundation (CARIF). You can learn more about the visit and about CARIF here.

Heath Slocum, winner of the inaugural McGladrey Classic, is headed to Malaysia for the inaugural CIMB Asia Pacific Classic, Malaysia next week (Oct. 28 – 31) at The MINES Resort & Golf Club. Heath will be joined by two other top finishers from The McGladrey Classic: Robert Allenby and Bill Haas. It’s being billed as a star-studded event, so you can bet we’ll be tuning in. Will you and, if so, who do you want to win?

And while it’s not necessarily a first, we’re pulling for Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco and Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III this week (Oct. 18 – 24) as they play In the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas. Who are you pulling for?
