Congratulations to Bubba Watson, winner of the 2012 Masters! It was a great tournament, and Bubba’s emotional win was well-deserved. Check out his surprise visit to the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive earlier this week – very cool!
Okay, well…his birthday isn’t actually until Friday, the 13th, but we wanted to begin this week’s post by wishing a very happy birthday to Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III! And speaking of Davis, it was on this very day back in 1987 that he had his first victory at the Heritage Classic – just 25 short years ago. My how times flies!
Davis’ daughter Lexie, who recently graduated from the University of Georgia, is currently working as a tournament assistant with The McGladrey Classic. She recently recounted what it was like growing up with a dad on TOUR. You can read her first-hand account here.
This week (April 9 – 15), Team McGladrey members Chris DiMarco and Zach Johnson are playing in the 44th annual RBC Heritage at the Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island. Of course, we’ll be pulling for them! Check out Chris’ digital press conference on Facebook.
Next week, The McGladrey Classic will announce the 2012 tournament’s Tix4Kids charity program participants, and will also launch ticket sales. You won’t want to miss these important happenings. You can stay current by checking The McGladrey Classic website, Facebook and/or Twitter accounts, and you can now follow them on Pinterest, as well. So…if you want to stay “in the know,” you have plenty of options!
Reminder: The volunteer window for those interested in helping make the 2012 McGladrey Classic a success is now open. If you’d like to help, you can sign up via the tournament website. We hope to see you there!
