Caddie for Love Entries Due June 25; Congrats to Zach Johnson & Davis Love III!

First things first…the deadline for Caddie for Love is quickly approaching. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to go inside the ropes with Team McGladrey Member and 2012 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III! More than 10,000 have entered for their chance to win, but there’s still time for you to submit your entry. Do it now before the June 25 deadline!

Speaking of Davis, we were thrilled when he and Morgan Pressel finished second at the CVS Caremark Charity Classic earlier this week, and ecstatic when Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar won with a record-setting two-round total of 24-under-par 118 at the Rhode Island Country Club! (The previous record in the best-ball format was 119 set in 2001.) Needless to say, this was a VERY exciting week for us here at McGladrey! You can watch highlights from the event here.

Zach and Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco are playing this week in the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut. Unfortunately, as of this writing, play has been suspended due to inclement weather. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that things clear up, and play resumes. We’re checking the PGA TOUR website regularly for updates.

Finally, we’d like to give a nod to our friends with WaggleRoom.com for the recent story about Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis – her charitable work and her work on behalf of the LPGA. Nicely done. You can read it here. Natalie, by the way, is playing in the Wegmans LPGA Championship at Locust Hill Country Club in New York. You can track her progress on the LPGA’s live leaderboard.

We’re wrapping up this week by circling back to Caddie for Love. Remember…You can vote for your favorite contestant beginning Sun., June 26. If you’ve entered, vote for yourself, and get your friends to cast their votes, as well. (Hopefully, they’ll vote for YOU.) If you don’t plan to enter, but you’d like to help decide on the winner, you can cast your vote, too. The deadline for voting is July 10. Who do you want to win?
