This week, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson is in California for the Humana Challenge, where he is joined by previous McGladrey Classic winners Heath Slocum (2010), Ben Crane (2011) and Chris Kirk (2013). If you plan on tuning in to The Golf Channel to watch, Zach tees off at 8:40 a.m., PST from tee No. 10 on PGA West (Nicklaus) and Slocum is at 8:30 a.m. from tee No. 1. On PGA West (Palmer), Crane tees off at 8:40 a.m., PST from tee No. 10 and Kirk is at 9:40 a.m. from tee No. 1. Best of luck to all our “guys”!
In other news, the annual PGA Merchandise Show kicked off yesterday (Tues., Jan. 20) with Demo Day and an instructional workshop. Jan. 21-23 will be the actual exhibit days and conferences in Orlando. This event is always a big hit for golf industry professionals; Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco even showed up this year!
In case you missed it, The Brunswick News recently published a great article about three area nonprofits that benefit from The McGladrey Classic: Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeast Georgia; Special Olympics, Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation and the First Tee Program. Numerous other local, regional and national charitable organizations receive proceeds from The McGladrey Classic, as well. Stewardship is one of McGladrey’s core values, and giving back to the community through The McGladrey Classic is one of the key ways we live that value. We’d like to thank all of The McGladrey Classic supporters and volunteers for their role in helping the 2014 tournament raise more than $930,000 for deserving children- and family-focused charitable organizations, and are looking forward to raising even more for those in need through this year’s event!
Check back with us next Thursday for more on Team McGladrey and the 2015 McGladrey Classic (Nov. 16-22)!
