Mother Nature Flexes Her Muscles But Golf Continues…


Mother Nature flexed her muscles this week, dumping between one and two inches of snow in some unusual locations – including Arizona where the first round of the World Golf Championship-Accenture Match Play Championship was underway in Marana. The tournament was halted due to the weather, but will pick back up this morning (after a one-hour delay due to frost). If all goes as planned, play should be back on track tomorrow (Friday) – assuming Mother Nature cooperates. We’d like to wish Team McGladrey Member, Zach Johnson, the best at the tournament…and on staying warm!

Next week, The Honda Classic takes place in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. As of right now, no Team McGladrey Members are scheduled to play. However, PGA TOUR players have until 5pm EST Feb. 22 to officially commit. We’ll let you know if any of “our guys” decide to play.  

Keeping up with these PGA TOUR tournaments makes us look more forward than usual to The McGladrey Classic (scheduled for Nov. 4 – 10 this year). The 2013 McGladrey Classic Excitement Video launched this past Monday, though, so that’s given us a bit of a taste of the event. And after watching the weather in Marana, we’re more anxious than ever to return to beautiful Sea Island! Check out the video to get YOUR McGladrey Classic fix!



We received very good news recently about Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III, post-surgery. We hear that he’s feeling great and seeing improvements each day. You can check out his Twitter update, and send him a get-well tweet there if you’d like.  

Also this week, the PGA TOUR Wives Association (PTWA) released a new book, “Beyond the Fairways and Greens,”  to celebrate the association’s 25th anniversary. The book includes never-before-seen photos, stories and recipes, and includes Zach’s wife Kim, as well as Davis’ wife Robin. Both Kim and Robin are members of the PTWA, which includes more than 130 PGA TOUR families. Visit the PGA TOUR Wives Association to learn more about the organization and to purchase the book if you’re so inclined!
