A few additional commitments include Stewart Cink, Brian Harman, Webb Simpson, plus many more! Checkout the 2014 Player Field.

We’re looking forward to this year’s tournament – not only for the great golf and for the opportunities we’ll have to build relationships with clients and potential clients – but we’re also excited about (hopefully) seeing year’s McGladrey Classic Sweepstakes winner Joe Wytanis around the course – and to hearing his take on his experiences at the tournament!
