Tune In To The McGladrey Classic


This week, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson is in San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open. Zach teed off this morning (March 27) at 8:10am CST on tee #10. Best of luck, Zach!

Speaking of Team McGladrey, we’d like to congratulate the Davis Love Golf Management team (founded by Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III and his brother Mark Love) on being selected to manage the Laurel Island Links in Kingsland, GA. In 1996, Laurel Island Links was the second course designed by Love Golf Design. Davis and the rest of the team are excited about adding Laurel Island Links to their portfolio of courses, and we’re excited for them!

Next Tues., April 1 (No foolin’!) is the first day NEW volunteers can sign-up to support the 2014 McGladrey Classic. Volunteer slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t wait too long! Spots have filled up quickly in the past – even though it takes 1,200 volunteers to make the tournament a success each year. Will you be joining us at Sea Island in October?

Another member of The McGladrey Classic family Ben Crane, winner of the 2011 McGladrey Classic, recently partnered with Golf Digest Magazine for a new video series “#GolfSecrets with Ben Crane.” Ben’s larger-than-life personality comes across loud and clear in the first episode, which you can watch here.


 

After watching the video, tell us… Are YOU in the “now” when YOU enter the squat stir? 

This isn’t the only series Golf Digest is rolling out. Others will include Nerve Wreckers, Breaking Bad Scores and The Hot List.  In their news release, Golf Digest describes the channel as, “a wide range of content focusing on Golf Digest’s core strengths in equipment and instruction, as well as humorous and informative original series.” We think Ben hit it out of the park (or maybe off the course?) with the first video. What do you think?  

Also this week, the Golf Channel announced on Tues., March 25, that they will broadcast the Friday matches at the 2014 Ryder Cup. This will be the first time that the network has provided live coverage of the event. You can bet we’ll be tuning in! Will you?Here’s the complete schedule (all times are ET):

·         Day One (Sept. 26): 2:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on Golf Channel
·         Day Two (Sept. 27): 3 a.m.-1 p.m. on NBC 
·         Day Three (Sept. 28): 7 a.m.-1 p.m. on NBC
