Blogs, Songs, Video and Golf

The Corrigan Brothers (the Irish band who reached 7 million YouTube hits with their international hit, “There’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama”) recently wrote a little “diddy,” celebrating fellow Irishman Rory McIlroy’s #1 World ranking. Give it a listen.

A bit closer to home, Pukka® Headwear announced that it is expanding its presence in golf by partnering with the Davis Love Foundation as the official headwear provider of The McGladrey Classic (Oct. 15 – 21). We can hardly wait to see their merchandise at Sea Island!

Speaking of Davis – who is not only the 2012 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain, but a member of Team McGladrey – he’s keeping an eye on players and coaches in anticipation of this year’s big event. You can follow his captain’s blog here. And if you haven’t already watched it, check out Davis’ 2012 McGladrey Classic excitement video. (WE’RE already getting excited about returning to Sea Island. Are you?)

In the interest of keeping it “all in the family,” we wanted to let you know that McGladrey Classic Executive Director Mark Love (Davis’ brother) has published a video, which takes viewers through various aspects of the game of golf. Check out the first in his educational series on YouTube.

Finally, Team McGladrey members Chris DiMarco and Zach Johnson are playing in the Transitions Championship in Florida this week, and Natalie Gulbis is at the RR Donelley LPGA Founders Cup in Phoenix, Arizona. Go, Team McGladrey – we’ll be pulling for each of you!

Next week, we’ll be taking a break for a little “rest and relaxation.” We hope you’ll check back with us on Thurs., March 29, though for our next update.
