45 Days and Counting ’Til The McGladrey Classic!


Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco was in the great state of North Carolina earlier this week (where we felt the earth move under our feet due to an unprecedented earthquake), and he also celebrated a birthday. Happy Birthday, Chris – we hope your special day was great!

Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis is playing in the CN Canadian Women’s Open at Hillsdale Golf & Country Club in Mirabel, Quebec this week. (She says it’s beautiful there. Wish we could join her.)

Another beautiful course, Diamante Dunes in Cabo San Lucas, which is a private championship links-style course designed by none other than Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III, was recently named to the Top 100 courses in the world (#58). Congratulations – to the course and the designer, who happens to be one of our favorite TOUR players!

We have a few important dates coming up. Residents of Jacksonville, Tampa, North Carolina and South Carolina have between now and Sun., Sept. 4 to enter to win the 2011 Ultimate Fan Giveaway for a chance to walk inside the ropes with a pair of PGA TOUR professionals during The McGladrey Classic on Sat., Oct. 15. Residents of Atlanta can enter between now and Sun., Sept. 4 to win an all-expense paid trip to see Darius Rucker perform. Winners will be announced Mon., Sept. 5. And speaking of Darius, you can check out what he has to say about The McGladrey Classic on Twitter.

Another important deadline: Caddie for Love voting wraps up tomorrow (Fri., Aug. 26). Cast your vote for your favorite contestant, which will give one lucky winner an opportunity to caddie for Davis at The McGladrey Classic in October. (The big event is right around the corner, and we’ve got Sea Island on our minds!) The Caddie for Love winner will be announced Sept. 15.
