From Caddyshack to The McGladrey Classic

Congratulations to D.A. Points and Bill Murray on winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am! Now, the man known for his legendary role as greenskeeper Carl Spackler in the movie “Caddyshack” is also known as a legend on the course!

Team McGladrey members Davis Love III and Chris DiMarco enjoyed the tournament, as well. In fact, take a look at this cool picture of Chris with actor Kurt Russell, whom he was paired with during the event.

Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis was recently in Malaysia’s Paya Beach. It was 100 degrees while she was there. How’s THAT for a break from the winter snow and ice we’ve been experiencing here in the U.S?

Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson posed for a picture on Valentine’s Day wearing the Colonial plaid jacket. How many colors do you think are in the jacket? (We’re guessing about 16.)

Other big news this week in the world of golf: Paula Creamer committed to the inaugural R.R. Conelley LPGA Founders Cup, which will be played at the J.W. Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix. The tournament will give $1 million to charity.

Speaking of charitable causes, we ran across this powerful video on Twitter earlier in the week and, given our support of Special Olympics, thought you, our readers, would enjoy its educational and inspirational message. Click here to hear Soeren Palumbo talk about the power of love.

That’s this week’s update, but remember…if you volunteered during the 2010 McGladrey Classic at Sea Island and you’re interested in helping during this year’s event, which is scheduled for Oct. 13 – 16, you can sign up now.
