Who’s Ready to Volunteer?


Last Friday (March 22), Sports Illustrated interviewed Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson for an article about the secret to his consistency, and what keeps him up at night. In the Q&A, Zach discusses his wins, how he’s a short hitter, the 2012 Ryder Cup (and Team McGladrey Member and 2012 Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III), and other topics. It’s definitely worth a read!

Last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Sergio Garcia executed an AMAZING shot that we just had to highlight here on our blog. (Might even be one for the history books!) Sergio climbed 15 feet up an oak tree to play a shot back out to the fairway. We’ve never seen anything quite like it! If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out.  


Teeing off today is the Shell Houston Open. While none of our Team McGladrey Members are playing in this tournament, we do have a vested interest in the outcome: extended McGladrey family members and previous McGladrey Classic winners Ben Crane (2011) and Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey (2012) are playing in the tournament. We’re pulling for you, guys!   

Speaking of The McGladrey Classic, this year’s event (Nov. 4 -10) might seem as if it’s a long way away, but…it’ll be here before we know it. In fact, registration for returning volunteers begin Mon., April 1. If you’ve contributed to the success of the tournament before, you can register on the McGladrey Classic website (under the Volunteers section). Registration opens for new volunteers on Wed., May 1. Volunteering is a fun way for golf enthusiasts to get close to the action, while supporting an event that has already contributed more than $850,000 to national and local charitable organizations. We’d love to see you at Sea Island!  

In closing, we wish our readers a wonderful and safe Easter weekend! (Wonder how many bunnies are sold this time of year?) “Hop” back by next week for more updates on Team McGladrey and the McGladrey Classic.
