…Drum Roll, Please!


On Wed., Nov. 5, the 2014 McGladrey Classic Birdies Fore Love winner was announced. Congratulations to Tonya Barbee who won a 2014 Buick Verano from Nalley Automotive of Brunswick by guessing 1,470 birdies made for the entire tournament! In addition to the car, Tonya “won” the opportunity to designate $5,000 from the Davis Love Foundation to a charitable organization of her choice. She chose Communities in Schools, so congrats are in order for them, too!

And while we’re congratulating folks, we’d like to give a shout-out to Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III on his performance last week in Malaysia at the CIMB Classic. Davis finsihed strong, tying for eighth place!  

Speaking of Team McGladrey members, Chris DiMarco is in Jackson, MS this week for the Sanderson Farms Championship, which tees off today (Nov. 6). Chris’s tee time is at 12:12 p.m., CST from hole No. 10, where he’ll be joined by a few extended McGladrey “family members,” including Heath Slocum (2010 McGladrey Classic winner), Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey (2012 winner) and the most recent addition: Robert Streb (2014 winner).  We’re pulling for “our guys!”

We’ll close this week’s update by sending belated birthday wishes to PGA TOUR Professional Bubba Watson whose birthday was Nov. 5. We know Bubba loves a good grilled cheese sandwich, and got a kick out of his attire during a recent Golf Channel appearance. Cheesy? We think not.  

Be sure to check back next week for more updates on the world of golf, Team McGladrey and the 2015 McGladrey Classic (Nov. 16-22)!
