Team McGladrey: Busy and Growing!

Exciting news this week! Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson tweeted that he and his wife Kim are expecting their third child this fall. Congrats to the Johnson family – your friends with McGladrey will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of your new addition! While it’s hard to compete with that type of news, there are a number of exciting things happening in the golf world this week. To begin, in conjunction with the Zurich Classic in New Orleans, the PGA TOUR is encouraging golf enthusiasts to submit questions for 2011 McGladrey Classic Winner Ben Crane via Direct Connect, PGATOUR.COM’s video franchise that helps fans get closer to a PGA TOUR pro each week. Host John Swantek might use YOUR question when he chats this week with Ben! Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco will be playing in the Zurich Classic, as well (and says his waist expands each year during this tournament due to all of that good Cajun cooking). You can also read this Q&A with Ben Crane to find out what he has to say about Bubba's shot, the Golf Boys and more. Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis was in Hawaii last week for the LPGA LOTTE Championship. Check out this amazing Twitpic she posted to Twitter. This week she’s in Mobile, Alabama for the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic. If you’re in the area, stop by and see her. And next week, the McGladrey team in Charlotte will be checking out the Wells Fargo Championship right here in our own backyard. Chris and Zach are scheduled to be here, along with fellow Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III. We’re keeping our fingers crossed from some of that beautiful Carolina weather for which our great state is so well-known. Finally, we’d like to encourage our readers to check out the PGA TOUR’s commercial for the 2012 McGladrey Classic (Oct. 15-21) in beautiful Sea Island – just six short months away! If you want to volunteer to support this year’s tournament, sign up now, and let us know that you’re going to be there – we’ll keep an eye out for you while we’re there…
