PGA of America President Brian Whitcomb chats with Golf for Beginners about the McGladrey Team Championship
Click here to listen.
The McGladrey Team Championship is the opportunity for golfers with a verifiable USGA handicap to compete on a national level promoting teamwork and cameraderie as two of its goals.
Teams of three golfers each will first qualify locally through August. Then, a PGA Professional golfer will join the group for the Sectional Qualifiers which begin in September culminating in a National Championship to be played October 20-22 at the famed Pinehurst Resort in N.C.
Approximately fourteen thousand golfers signed up for the inaugural Championship and attendance is expected to double. Women, who only made up about 4.5% of last year’s total entrants (650), are expected to easily top 15% of the total number of competitors!
Brian’s personal take on the McGladrey Team Championship is that it “blends the competitive spirit and bridges the relationship between the PGA professional and their members and guests that they’re playing with as well as the fraternal and social side of this great game.”
The sponsors slogan, “With the right team, anything’s possible” along with the PGA of America’s ideology to increase the public’s desire to “play more golf, and ensure accessibility to the game for everyone, everywhere,” are also dominant principles behind this successful recurring event.
Team McGladrey asked LPGA golfer Natalie Gulbis, Masters Champion Zach Johnson and PGA Tour fan favorite and XM radio show host Chris DiMarco to also join forces with this event “because they capture the very same qualities we strive to achieve with all of our client engagements – integrity, excellence and passion.”

upon the view being televised (especially when when the hole is hard to locate); show the different
clubs and explain what they're normally used for and why a specific club is being used. The 3-d scene used in the Masters was exceptionally good --perhaps it can be
used for all events?
