The McGladrey Classic Returns to Sea Island


We’re just days away now from our next event at Sea Island! Team McGladrey members Zach Johnson and Davis Love III (both of whom are Sea Island residents) and Heath Slocum (winner of the inaugural McGladrey Classic) will be joining us and RSM McGladrey President C.E. Andrews to present checks for funds raised during last year’s event to Special Olympics and the Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Georgia. Representatives from both nonprofits will be on-hand to accept the donations on behalf of their organizations, and to help celebrate an exciting announcement that Davis will make on March 28. We’ll be sharing updates from the event via Twitter (@McGladrey) – hope you’re following us so you can hear the “breaking news!”

As usual, Team McGladrey members have been busy this past week, and have lots planned over the coming week. Here’s a quick peek at a few of the highlights:

Zach Johnson and his family enjoyed a few days at Universal Studios over spring break last week, and they snapped on picture of a “pooped” son Will that we just have to share – you can find it here.

Zach, along with fellow Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco, are joining 118 other PGA TOUR professionals including Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia, for the 2011 Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando. (We hear that Chris is particularly excited to be playing the course, which is one of his favorites, and even more excited that he’ll be able to sleep in his own bed throughout the event.)

Natalie Gulbis recently attended a Fight Night charity event, and posted this nice twitpic of her and some of her LPGA TOUR friends on Twitter.

REMINDER: You can now sign up for volunteer opportunities at this year’s McGladrey Classic at Sea Island in October. Interested? Do it now! This year’s event is already shaping up to be every bit as “top notch” as the inaugural event.
