It is your chance to do what few can boast in their golf careers – to be part of a national championship. The PGA of America welcomes its nationwide membership, connected to amateur players everywhere, to discover that teamwork is alive and well in this game.
The PGA McGladrey Team Championship marks its second season in 2008, and we invited you to be a part of that story.
The Championship is the result of a partnership between The PGA of America and RSM McGladrey, the Official Accounting, Tax and Business Consulting Firm of The PGA of America.
For those who were part of the inaugural 2007 Championship, we welcome you back. For those who have yet to sample what can be your most memorable golf experience, we have new elements to this year’s Championship.
The three steps to the national championship remain. From Local Qualifying Events from January through August; following 41 Section Championships through September, and leading up to the National Championship, Oct. 20-22, with a return to world-renowned Pinehurst (N.C.) Resort.
This year, the handicap index increases; and more than one team may advance to the Section Championship based on Local Championship attendance.
Competitors this year will begin play on Course No. 8, and finish the final two days with play split between famed Course No. 2 and No. 4.
The PGA McGladrey Team Championship has proven to be a very popular addition to the golf schedules of amateurs and their Local PGA Professional. Make it a part of your 2008 plans in golf.
Are you ready to join the team? The journey begins now.
