Happy Birthday, Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco!
First things first, tomorrow (Aug. 23) isTeam McGladrey MemberChris DiMarco’s birthday! We’ll be sending him birthday wishes from McGladrey, and hoping he has a fantastic day. If you want to send your birthday wishes, leave those here, and we’ll be sure to pass along your good wishes, as well.
This week, the Seaside Course picture is of hole 7 which is a par 5 playing 566 yards. It has averaged 4.74 strokes and yielded 422 birdies and 12 eagles in the first 3 years of the McGladrey Classic. The first of two par 5’s on the Seaside Course, the seventh hole is a fairly straight play. There is water along the right side of the fairway and marshland and dunes to the left off the tee. The second shot is challenged by a large fairway bunker on the left side and more dunes on the right. There is marshland to the right and long which will challenge players who seek to reach the green in two shots.
We are in now just under two-and-a-half months away from the 2013 McGladrey Classic (Nov. 4-10)! A few items to check out if you plan to attend this year’s tournament:
We’ll be following The Barclays this week (starts today Aug. 22), and pulling for Ben Crane, winner of the 2011 McGladrey Classic. He’s in group 31, which tees off today at 1:50 p.m., ET. Even though Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson is at number 18 in FedEx standings, he will be missing the tournament for a very good reason: to be best man at his brother's wedding!
And speaking of Ben, if you haven’t seen his latest YouTube video, “Bubble Boy,” you might want to check it out. He never ceases to make us laugh.
Check back next week for more updates on Team McGladrey and The McGladrey Classic – our excitement about this year’s tournament is growing!
