Rolling into the new season


Mother nature sure gave the 2013 PGA TOUR season tournament opener a difficult start! Last week, winds got up to 40 mph during the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii. Due to the weather, the tournament was reduced to 54 holes. Congratulations to champion, Dustin Johnson, for overcoming the challenging weather conditions to take home the trophy! (Check out the Twitter picture Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson shared via the PGA TOUR from the island, showing how windy it really was.)

Speaking of Zach, as the 2013 season gains momentum, we want to wish Zach and fellow Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III good luck this week as they play in the Sony Open which kicks off today at the beautiful Waialae Country Club in Hawaii! (We have our fingers crossed for better weather on the island for this one!) PGA TOUR expert picks sized up the players at this tournament, and have Zach as their No. 1 pick! Zach won this tournament in 2009, and we’d love to see a “repeat performance!” Who are your top picks for the Sony Open?
 
As Team McGladrey members start up their new season, McGladrey will be debuting an improved logo for our PGA golfers to wear. The logo will now be either black or white so our brand’s colors don’t conflict with other colors or patterns the players are wearing. We’ve also increased the size of the logo so it will  be more prominent.  The picture to the right shows one of Davis’ new shirts. What do you think?

Check back in next week as we talk more about The McGladrey Classic and Team McGladrey.
