McGladrey Clients Enjoy a Special Treat, Courtesy of Davis Love III



Below is the most recent update on activities related to The McGladrey Classic from RSM McGladrey’s Senior Director of Sports Marketing Ricki Lasky. Check back here again tomorrow for another update and, while you’re here, let us know who you think will win The McGladrey Classic by taking our online poll.


After a full day of welcoming clients and other special guests to Sea Island, we wrapped up yesterday with a pairings party at Davis Love III’s beautiful home. The generosity that Davis (as the newest member of Team McGladrey and as The McGladrey Classic tournament chairman) and his wife Robin show – through the Davis Love Foundation and through their good old southern hospitality is an inspiration. In fact, one of the centerpieces from last night was Davis’s beloved Orange County chopper, which he is raffling, with all proceeds going to the Davis Love Foundation.

Highlights from the evening included comments from RSM McGladrey President and COO C.E. Andrews who talked about the fact that The McGladrey Classic is really about giving back to the community, and who thanked Davis and Robin for opening their home to create a one-of-a-kind experience for McGladrey clients.

Davis, fresh back from the Ryder Cup in Wales (His return plane literally landed on the island about an hour before the reception.), talked about his experience at the Ryder Cup, saying that it’s all about teamwork – just as it is with McGladrey and its clients. Davis illustrated the point with an entertaining story about Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson playing on the same side of a ping-pong table while Team USA was in Wales.

And today, The McGladrey Classic kicks off with the Pro-Am. Stay tuned here for updates – it promises to be an exciting few days…
