As the year kicks off, Team McGladrey is getting back into the swing of things. This week, Zach Johnson is in Hawaii defending his title at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Zach tees off this morning, Thurs., Jan. 8, at 12:50 pm HST from tee No. 1. We’re pulling for a win! And while Zach is competing this weekend, he will also be featured in an NBC Special – PGA TOUR 2015 presented by Hyundai – airing on Sun., Jan. 11 at 2pm EST. Be sure to tune in!
Meanwhile, Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco was featured in an Gulf News article as they build-up for the 10th annual Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. In the tournament’s inaugural year in 2006, Chris won.
The McGladrey Classic is also starting off the new year with a BIG announcement: The fifth annual McGladrey Classic in October 2014 raised more than $930,000 for children- and family-focused charitable organizations. This brings the total five-year charitable contribution of the tournament to more than $2.7 million. This is due in large part to the tournament's Birdies Fore Love program. BFL was launched in 2012 to encourage individuals to make donations and to guess the number of birdies that would be made during the tournament. In 2014, McGladrey employees and clients raised more than $467,000 through the program. McGladrey is thrilled to be part of such a strong effort that supports the community.
We’re looking forward to seeing what 2015 has in store for Team McGladrey and The McGladrey Classic (Nov. 16-22), and to sharing those details with our readers. Be sure to stop by next week to here the latest updates.
