Smashing Successes


We’d like to start this week’s update by making you aware of a recent article about The McGladrey Classic by Dave Jordan, sports editor with The Brunswick News. Dave’s article says that the Seaside Course on St. Simons Island was “Masters-like” for the inaugural McGladrey Classic, and says that the event, as a whole was a “smashing success.” (He even took credit for last year’s incredible weather, and said he’ll do the same this year, assuming the weather is equally as amazing. Here’s to hoping that will be the case, and thanks in advance for that, Dave!)

Last week, we announced that Platinum-selling country singer Darius Rucker will perform a concert during this year’s event (Wed., Oct. 12 at 7:30 p.m., ET). Well…tickets are now on sale. Get yours today. And while you’re getting your concert tickets, go ahead and get your tournament tickets. This year’s field is shaping up to be impressive. You won’t want to miss what’s sure to be our second annual “smashing success!”

This week, congratulations go out to Peter Ferraro, winner of Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco’s “Royal Challenge!”

Also this week, Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis is in France for the Evian Masters (July 21 – 24), while Team McGladrey members Davis Love III and Zach Johnson are playing in the CVS Caremark Charity Classic (July 19 – 21) at Rhode Island Country Club. And coming soon…the first ever Zach Johnson Foundation Classic will tee off in Cedar Rapids on Aug. 1 at Elmcrest Country Club. Proceeds from the tournament will go to some of Zach’s favorite area nonprofits.

Next week, we’ll be taking some time off for a little vacation (which we hope will be yet another…you guessed it…“smashing success”). Please check back with us for our next update on Aug. 4.
