The ABCs of Golf


While these might not be “the” ABCs of golf, we have a few things we’re referring to as this week’s “ABCs of golf:” an Accolade, a Birthday and a Commercial. And because he’s so near-and-dear to our hearts and since today is the actual “big day,” we’d like to start with the Birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson, who is celebrating his 35th today!

Next up – the Commercial: Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis is starring in a new LPGA TOUR ad campaign, which began airing this week in conjunction with The Golf Channel’s coverage of the season-opening Honda LPGA Thailand event. Other LPGA TOUR professionals featured include reigning U.S. Women’s Open Champion Paula Creamer, three-time TOUR winner I.K. Kim, Rookie-of-the-Year Azahara Munoz and two-time major champion Cristie Kerr. Natalie’s “Autographs” spot features her signing some pretty interesting things. Take a look.

Finally, the Accolade: We’re closing this week’s update by congratulating Aaron Baddeley on winning the 2011 Northern Trust Open, and by reminding our 2010 McGladrey Classic volunteers that they can sign up now to volunteer during this year’s event, (scheduled for Oct. 13 – 16).
