Golf, Lost Love and a New App

Congratulations to Mark Wilson, the 2012 Humana Challenge champion. Our own Team McGladrey members Zach Johnson and Chris DiMarco played well during the event, too, finishing T8 and T30 respectively. Chris is now playing (Jan. 26 – 29) in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California. And there's another McGladrey connection at Torrey Pines this week: 2011 McGladrey Classic Winner Ben Crane is playing, as well. Watch the live coverage.

Speaking of Ben Crane, he launched his latest video, “Lost Love,” earlier this week. Click here to see what he might be doing if he hadn’t decided to pursue golf. And if you think THAT was funny, check out some of his previous videos. They’re sure to make you laugh.

Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III is at the PGA Show in Orlando today, signing autographs at the Bridgestone booth. If you’re there – stop by and tell him “hello” from his friends at McGladrey.

Also this week, the PGA TOUR launched its official (and free) HD iPad app, featuring live scoring, stats and video. You can download it in the App store. Let us know what you think – we’ll share your feedback with the TOUR.

Finally, the Abu Dhabi HBC Golf Championship is now underway (Jan. 26 – 29). In the field are 97 European TOUR winners, 12 Major Championship winners with 28 Major titles, six players in the Top 10 of the Official World Golf Rankings and four World Number Ones. Twenty-six different nationalities are represented. You can keep up with the latest news throughout the event here.
