A Special Weekend Coming up For Team McGladrey – and for Mom


If you were planning to attend Demo Day for Charity last Saturday (May 4), you know by now that, unfortunately, the event had to be cancelled due to inclement weather. While the planning team was disappointed, they wanted to ensure the safety of everyone involved. The good news: The event has been rescheduled. If you want to attend – and to support a great cause – mark your calendar for Sat., June 15 from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It promises to be an amazing event!

Recapping last week’s activities, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson discussed his play at the Wells Fargo Championship. You can read the interview here. Speaking of last week, this past Mon., May 6, Zach and fellow Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III teamed up for the inaugural TA 4 Life Pro-Am Invitational at Sea Island Golf Club. What an amazing cause! You can find out more about TA4Life here. (Check out the picture Davis posted from the event!)

The 2013 PLAYERS Championship starts today (May 9), and we’re excited that Davis will be back in the game! He’ll be playing alongside Zach, who started early with an 8:39 a.m., ET tee time in group #9. Davis is in group #42, which tees at 1:07 p.m. We’ll be cheering on Zach and Davis! Who are you rooting for?

On a McGladrey Classic note, planning for this year’s event (scheduled for Nov. 4 – 10) and related activities is underway as you read this post. A few members of the McGladrey team are at St. Simons Island, GA, this week meeting with the Davis Love Foundation and others on the island who work together to make The McGladrey Classic a “must-see” PGA TOUR event. We’ll keep you posted as details are finalized for this year’s tournament.   

In the meantime, you don’t have to wait until November to purchase McGladrey Classic merchandise; the tournament office has already started adding new “goodies” to its online store. Check it out! Can we expect to see you rocking some of these items on the course? We’d love to see pictures of you and your golf buddies sporting McGladrey Classic gear. Upload your pictures and tag us on Facebook or @McGladreyClssc!

We can’t close this week’s post without acknowledging the fact that this Sunday is Mother’s Day. Your friends at McGladrey wish all of the mothers and mothers-to-be out there a very Happy Mother’s Day! If you’re taking your mom to the course this weekend to celebrate (we can’t think of a better way to spend some time with Mom.), send us your pictures.

Check back next week for our next update on Team McGladrey and The McGladrey Classic.
