Modern Throwback


What a weekend for 2013 McGladrey Classic winner, Chris Kirk, who won last week’s Crowne Plaza Invitational! We’re proud of you, Chris, and are glad to have you as a member of the extended McGladrey Classic “family”!   

This week, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson and other members of our extended family are in Irving, TX for the AT&T Byron Nelson tournament. Zach is in good company with past McGladrey Classic winners Heath Slocum (2010), Ben Crane (2011)  and Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey (2012) all playing in this year’s tournament. Zach teed off at 8 a.m., CT, from tee No. 10; from tee No. 1, Heath teed off at 8:10 a.m.; teeing off at 12:40 p.m., were both Tommy (at tee No. 1) and Ben was (from No. 10). Best of luck to all of our “guys”! We’ve got our fingers crossed for good weather for the weekend!  

Remember: starting next Monday (June 1), registration will be open for NEW volunteers for the 2015 McGladrey Classic! To sign up to help during this year’s tournament at beautiful Sea Island, visit  https://www.dlfvolunteers.com and enter a username and password.  You’ll then create a profile, and select and submit your top three committee choices. Or… you can head over to McGladrey Classic’s Volunteer Registration page and get added to the communication list!

Speaking of The McGladrey Classic, a great article was featured in Sea Island Life on how the game of golf is completely different due to today’s technology, instructions and athletes. It’s a great read, and even provides breakdown of modern golfers’ swings – including the one and only – Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson! Read the article here [page 18].

And taking a step back in time, we thought our readers would enjoy a little #ThrowBackThursday. Check out this picture of the original clubhouse at Sea Island Golf Club. [Photo credit: Sea Island Resorts] It’s changed quite a bit, but has kept its classic and Southern style. We are very fortunate to call Sea Island home to the McGladrey Classic, and are looking forward to returning to the island for this year’s tournament in November. Between now and then, be sure to check back each week for more updates on Team McGladrey and the 2015 McGladrey Classic [Nov. 16-22].
