Spring Has Sprung and Golf is in the Air!

Ah, spring – when pollen…and golf balls fill the air! One of our favorite early signs of spring is The Masters, which is coming up next week (April 2 – 8) at Augusta National. 2011 McGladrey Classic Winner Ben Crane is on the invitee list, as is Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson so, while we won’t be lucky enough to be there in person this year, you can bet we’ll be following closely. Who’s your favorite to win?

Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco made a stop at the Shell Houston Open earlier this week. And both he and Zach have committed to play in the 44th annual RBC Heritage the following week (April 9-15) at the Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island. Of course, we’ll be watching things there as well.

The McGladrey Classic recently spoke with Mark Davis, a 2011 volunteer, who was acknowledged by his volunteer chairman for his outstanding volunteerism during the 2011 tournament. You can read the story here. And speaking of volunteers, if you’re interested in helping make the 2012 McGladrey Classic a success, you’ll be able to sign up to volunteer beginning April 9. We’ll remind you again, but wanted to make sure you’ve got it this fun opportunity on “your radar.” You’ll be able to sign up on The McGladrey Classic website.

Finally, we’ll close this week’s update by letting you know that The McGladrey Classic is now on Pinterest, giving you another way to keep up with the latest about the 2012 tournament. Check it out and “like” and “re-pin” till your heart’s content!

’Talk with you next week!
