This week, Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco is in Louisiana for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans! Chris teed off at 8:30 a.m., CT on tee no.1. Best of luck, Chris! Your McGladrey teammates are pulling for you. The PGA TOUR shared a funny picture from the course earlier this week of a mesmerized J.B. Holmes and Luke Guthrie when they stumbled upon Tripod, TPC Louisiana ‘s famous three-legged gator! Check out how they’re all standing at attention in this picture. And speaking of animal encounters on the course, this Tues., April 22, was Earth Day. In honor of all things Mother Nature, the TOUR shared its Top 10: Animal Encounters on the PGA TOUR. Davis Love III came in at No. 6 when he had an up-close and personal encounter with Tripod. Hopefully, Chris doesn’t get that close to him this week!

And for those who like to plan ahead, on Sat., May 24, the Davis Love Foundation and Sea Island Golf Club will host the third Annual Demo Day Fore Charity. The event will take place at the Learning Center Practice Facility at Sea Island Golf Club from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., ET. Guests will have “inside the ropes” access to test some of the latest golf equipment available, speak with world-class club fitters from Sea Island Golf Club, and receive special discounted pricing on equipment purchased at the event – all for a good cause. Find out more information and register here.

Check back next week for more updates on Team McGladrey and the 2014 McGladrey Classic (Oct. 20-26).
